So, what are some of your favorite Swords & Sorcery movies? Most came out in the 80's but there are always some classics too.

For example, I love:

The Princess Bride
The Jester's Court
Conan
Hawk the Slayer
Krull
Labyrinth
NeverEnding Story (just the first one)
Dark Crystal
Time Bandits
Legend

etc.

Wizards was one of my all time favs! I even found pics for my avatar, but alas, no luck with that yet. LOL

I also loved the Conan, Red Sonya movies.

Even though it was only a cartoon, He-man was also awesome!

Some great additions that didn't first pop into my head. Thanks!

I'm also partial to the old Robin Hood and Pirate movies too.
Seventh Voyage of Sinbad

What's that recent one, with Natalie Portman? That was good too, Your Highness, or something like that...

Man, I just know I'm forgetting a lot worth mentioning...

That makes me wonder why they haven't been able to put out any good S&S movies since the '80's?

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is the only exception and it shows how awesome they can be with today's special effects. With the great success of those movies, it makes me wonder why Hollywood doesn't put out more.


One of my favorites is the old Sinbad movies. The monsters were done with claymation but, the storylines were still awesome!

All Lord of the Rings movies....

Legend

Does Highlander count?

I really don't watch much of this type ....But I loved Xena Warrior Princess when it was on (I know it's not a movie, but I loved it.)

Wizards & Warriors
Covington Cross
Pirates of Dark Water (cartoon)
Mr. Merlin (how many of you remember that one?)
Merlin (series and TV movies)
Game of Thrones (if you haven't seen this yet....check it out)

Can't believe I didn't mention the Lord of the Rings movies earlier....
Knight's Tale (that movie rocked)

My favorite when I was a kid was Krull.
I also liked all of the previous answers and I can not wait for the remake of Conan to come out. with todays special effects I think it will be awesome.

i'll have to agree with beastmaster, my friend actually cried when the ferret (odo or popo?) died and all the kids made fun of him to no end.

Mine would have to be Brotherhood of the Wolf (Directors cut only), great story and great fighting sequences. I am also a sucker for old school work, Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans, Sinibad. I forgot the classic guy movies in my opinion 300 and Braveheart.

Ooooooh, all of them!!!!!!!

The Merlin miniseries (Sam Neil), is probably one of the closest to the legends in many ways. One of my favorite adaptations of the Merlin story.

How could I forget Beastmaster? or 300?
