Hi!
What do you think of Fantasy on TV? Are there any really good films which can be listed in the fantasy genre? Lord of the rings is the first good approach of filming fantasy - In my view.(I just saw the first part. Part two gets this year in the movies. But besides this, what's there? Films with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger - Conan or something like this? Very disappointing! Can anybody of you recommendend a worthwile film?

Everyone? er I didnt tink it was anytink special myself. It was ok but I found some of the acting really bad. Gandalf and Frodo sucked big time in the acting department.

Now the first conan movie was good and I liked it when I saw it as a child.

Sir Ian McKellan was nominated for an Oscar for playing Gandalf and Elijah Wood was perfect for Frodo.

Willow was cool.

I saw 'Princess Mononoke' on Thursday; it's a Japanese fantasy cartoon film redubbed with voices by people like Billy Bob Thorton, Gillian Anderson and Minnie Driver.
The quality of the animation is astounding, and it's well worth a look. This is not a children's cartoon, though; there's a fair bit of violence.

Oscars mean nothing. They are just like book awards.

One of my favorites is John Boorman's "Excalibur", an adaptatian of the Arthurian Legend.

Some years ago on British TV the BBC screened a Japanese series called Monkey which attracted a sizeable cult audience.
It was based on a 16th century Chinese epic story.Even though it was dubbed into English and somewhat corny it became hugely popular!
