It was pretty good! Any era really! She's not keen on Harry Potter, but likes LOTR and Stardust! Any suggestions welcome!

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm leaning on Golden Compass atm...I don't think she likes 'kiddy' type movies but likes romance, magic, fantasy and stuff!

Enchanted looks pretty good in the trailers but is the humour too childish? Might give SWC a go though! Tx

I love Enchanted, get that!

Time Bandits (just awesome)
The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen (often overlooked but very very good IMO)
The Princess Bride (awesome)
Willow (as amibees said)
Pans Labyrinth (as allycat38 said)
Labyrinth
or but THIS which contains Labyrinth (and a few others, but mostly aimed at kids, whereas the ones above are quite adult (but still good for kids) Contents

Jack the Giant Killer (my fave film as a kid (but it is 1960s))

Forgot to say; Time Bandits - whatever you do - watch it - just awesome - I wanna watch it now; now that I'm thinking about it. It's kind of Monty Python meets fantasy a[B]nd it is just magical. Then go for Baron Munch if you like TB[/B]

Time Bandits and Princess Bride!!!!!!! Classics!! I think I'll have to rent them again sometime soon!!

Was going to say Princess Bride too, inconceivable :-D

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a fantastic film, Terry Gilliam and well worth watching if you havent seen it already :)

What about that new one just out, Peter and the lightning bolt, or something like that...

I remember watching that on a plane back from Spain - when the credits began to roll both me and this bloke next to me took off our headphones and looked at each other as if to say "what the bloody hell was that all about":-D

Then that won't be the one for her then! Never really understood the Bridge to Tabathingamajig or Zanthingamabob n stuff like that...

Yes, that's the one. Was it any good? I'm not a big Harry Potter fan myself, but thought it was in the same vein as OP's request...

Started okay then tailed off a bit & pretty flat by the end :)

Agree with one of wedgeys recommendations - The Princess Bride is good & has some humour aimed at adults as well :)
#22
Thanks. I haven't seen The PB, but it does look like "that type of film" good call :thumbsup:
#23
Best for me is.......

Ridley Scott's 1985 film....... LEGEND.......with Tim Curry and Tom Cruise
#24
what about the terry pratchett ones, 'colour of magic' and 'the hogfather'
#25
Definitely the Chronicles of Narnia films. And Inkheart was a good one too. :thumbsup:
#26
You might like Big Fish and probably Alice in Wonderland...
#27
How about a TV series? Legend of the Seeker is pretty good and quite LOTR'esk Thinik it is showing on FX or scifi atm
