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

How about The Last Mimzy?

The Golden Compass
Enchanted
The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus
The Secret Of Moonacre
The Spiderwick Chronicles
The NeverEnding Story
The Chronicles Of Narnia
Pan's Labyrinth

Great film De Niro playing a camp pirate classic.

Golden Compass along similar lines if i remember rightly

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 and it is just magical. Then go for Baron Munch if you like TB

the secret of moonacre is good

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

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

Thanks. I haven't seen The PB, but it does look like "that type of film" good call :thumbsup:

Best for me is.......

Ridley Scott's 1985 film....... LEGEND.......with Tim Curry and Tom Cruise

what about the terry pratchett ones, 'colour of magic' and 'the hogfather'

Definitely the Chronicles of Narnia films. And Inkheart was a good one too. :thumbsup:

You might like Big Fish and probably Alice in Wonderland...

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
