The 25 Best Fantasy Movies of All Time + Honorable Mentions

"There's a long tradition of exciting fantasy cinema and the following list looks to nail down the very best of the genre. While it's fair to say that a list of this nature is bound to reveal some of the writer's biases (I grew up in the 1980s and I'll be the first to tell you that a lot of the films you're about to read about here played pivotal roles in my formative years), it's also fun to discover the antecedents and inspirations behind your favorite films that chronicle the fantastic (and you'll find those here, too).
More films than the 25 listed here are rhymed off in an "Honorable Mention" section"
