Whether you’re a literate movie enthusiast or just a casual fan, fantasy movies are what everyone should watch at least once. In this article, read and find out what are the best fantasy movies of all time!
The Wizard of Oz (1939)
According to Murrian, one of the best fantasy movies of all time is The Wizard of Oz in 1939. The thrills, the timeless humor, the classical music which is arguably the greatest song of the 20th century, and the colorful characters brilliantly performed by the actors make The Wizard of Oz one of the best fantasy movies of all time.
The Library of Congress revealed that MGM and Victor Fleming’s musical fantasy masterpiece was one of the most-watched and best fantasy movies of all time. Exhilarating and heartwarming, indeed, The Wizard of Oz is one of the best fantasy movies of all time that we could share with the future generations.
Star Wars (1977)
Another one of the best fantasy movies of all time is the Star Wars in 1977. American filmmaker George Lucas’ fantasy space opera was wildly inspired by various 1950s sci-fi serial movies such as Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress, the Flash Gordon, and film subgenre spaghetti Westerns.
Although every movie studio except Fox rejected the unusual project and the production had some difficulties, the Star Wars surpassed Jaws as the highest-grossing and one of the best fantasy movies of all time.
As a result, the Star Wars was nominated for ten Oscars awards of which it won six, indeed making it one of the best fantasy movies of all time. All these years later, the Star Wars still performs as an independent film even on the thousandth watch.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
According to Murrian, another one of the best fantasy movies of all time is the first animated feature in history, the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. Walt Disney went all out on this musical fantasy where people thought he was insane to believe the audience could relate to hand-drawn creations for more than an hour.
Nonetheless, the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs became the highest-grossing film ever upon release and an all-time adjusted box-office champ which makes it also one of the best fantasy movies of all time. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs featured one of the most memorable movie villains by the American Film Institute: the wicked stepmother who was also a devious royal witch who will do anything to destroy Snow White out of vanity.
