My very favorite fantasy movie is Excalibur. I have enjoyed several science fiction films, but the two that come to mind first are Blade Runner and The Matrix.
For fantasy, I'd have to say The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I love these movies - they're epic, breath-taking and filled with characters one can relate to.
For science fiction, I'd have to go with Alien, although it could also fall under the horror genre (it's basically a haunted house movie in outer space.)
This is easy for me to answer, midget. Because I don't watch many sci-fi movies and the "fantasy" movies that I see with my grandchildren are usually kid's films....
.The one adult movie of this type that I totally love is, "Creator," with Peter O'Toole, David Ogden Steirs, Vincent Spano and Virginia Masden. Are you familiar with it? I'll bet you would love it. It's got a little bit of everything in it.....comedy, drama, love story, science fiction.....I can pretty much repeat the entire script from beginning to end. I've seen it at least 25 times.....(It's an older movie)! It makes me laugh, cry and dream.
There can only be one best, and in the science fiction category I will have to go with the legendary Star Wars.
I am a huge fan of the original "Dune" movie and the miniseries for the "Children of Dune" that aired on the Science Fiction channel years later. For fantasy I would have to say "Dragonslayer."
I also have to go with Star Wars (though I can't pick a specific installment). It's the perfect blend of Sci Fi and Fantasy, with a world so vast that it arguably has no limits. But, more than anything, it's a series I can enjoy no matter how old I am when I'm watching it.
Well I don't have one, I have six, all six of the Star Wars movies are my absolute favorite. I am a sci-fi geek, so I also enjoy the Transformers, all the Super Hero/comic book movies, etc.
Oh so many to choose from. I did like Avatar, but a couple of fantasy movies I can still remember fondly are Willow and Lady Hawk, and in a totally different vein of science fiction/comedy, Honey I Shrunk the Kids...lol. Lady Hawk starring Michelle Pfieffer, Rutger Hauer and Matthew Broderick would be my favourite however.
Avatar because not only did it have the most beautiful scenery (even if it was computer graphics), but the message was unmistakable. I am a scifi fantasy buff and enjoy most of them, but Avatar was the most moving that I've seen.
John R. R. Tolkien's trilogy, working manuscript titled, There and Back which eventually became Lord of the Rings by his publisher. When I was younger, a Mathematics Professor named Dodgson's book about a Oxford University Dean's daughter he called Alice's Adventures Under Ground which eventually became Alice in Wonderland...

Which is your favorite science fiction series: Twilight Zone or Outer Limits? Why? And by the...way, I'm talking about the original black-and-white era versions of these shows, definitely not the more "modern" stuff.

What first got you interested in Fantasy and/or Science Fiction?I always liked movies with magic and epic journeys as a kid, but it wasn't until I played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that I became obsessed with the fantasy genre. After that I really dove into writing and reading it and...
