The Best Fantasy Movies Of All Time According To Rotten Tomatoes jassi
We've scoured the pages of Rotten Tomatoes to find the most critically beloved examples of the fantasy genre. To be fair, lots of Disney films could've made this list. But it's hard to argue with the critics here. 1991's Beauty and the Beast, a staple of Disney's early 90's, pre-Pixar renaissance, is as good as animation, and cinema, gets. Based on both the 1740 short story and the equally great French film from 1946, this animated classic won overwhelming critical acclaim upon release, and for good reason. 

It's the story of Belle, a young French girl who's captured by, and who falls in love with, a reclusive beast who only has until the last petal falls from a magical rose to fall in love himself and revert back to human form; otherwise he'll stay a beast forever. Meanwhile, the egomaniacal Gaston convinces Belle's neighbors that she's in terrible danger, and leads them on a quest to kill the beast so he can have Belle to himself. Also, there's a living candlestick whose best friend is a clock, and a teapot with a cup for a son, and a walking chest of drawers and...you know what? Let's just watch it again. "It has to be something very special." Written and Directed by Guillermo del Toro of The Shape of Water and Pacific Rim fame, Pan's Labyrinth is a truly masterful cinematic fable in a style not unlike Alice in Wonderland, but considerably darker and more mature. 

Pan tells the story of Ofelia, a young Spanish girl living during the Spanish Civil War. After traveling to meet her new rebel-hunting stepfather, she stumbles upon a stone labyrinth filled with mythical creatures. The faun guarding the entrance to this maze believes Ofelia to be the reincarnation of Princess Moanna, who's prophesied to one day return to unite the underworld. The faun tasks Ofelia with various quests, such as retrieving a key from the belly of a great toad, retrieving a dagger from the child-eating Pale Man, and spilling the blood of an innocent to open a portal. The faun claims that success will restore her to the throne. However, things go south in the world above as her stepfather continues his ruthless campaign, and Ofelia's ability to navigate the struggles of both places is put to the test. 

We won't spoil the surprises, but we will emphasize just how otherworldly and magical this film feels. As evidenced by its Rotten Tomatoes score, the critics agreed and put it on countless 2006 Best of the Year lists. If you haven't seen it, do so now. We promise you won't be disappointed. All three Lord of the Rings films were fantastic, but you really can't beat The Two Towers. The action follows a rather bittersweet ending to 2001's The Fellowship of the Ring, in which Boromir died, Frodo struck out alone, Sam nearly drowned getting to him, and Merry and Pippin were captured by orcs. Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli head out not to escort Frodo to Mordor , but instead to save the other two hobbits. Their journey leads them to a resurrected Gandalf and into Rohan, which is besieged by the forces of the evil wizard Saruman, who's working for the Big Bad Sauron. Meanwhile, bumbling hobbits Merry and Pippin manage to convince a group of walking, talking trees to take the fight to Saruman after he slaughtered their brethren in a deforestation binge. 

Further east, Frodo and Sam capture the Ring-obsessed Gollum and force him to guide them to Mordor, only to get caught themselves by foot soldiers from Gondor. As film highlights go, audiences are still amazed by the Battle of Helm's Deep. It doesn't quite surpass Saving Private Ryan's opening Omaha Beach sequence on the list of all-time greatest battle scenes, but it came damn close, and hasn't been topped since. All forms of animation have their merits, but there's just something about stop-motion that's simply spellbinding. Maybe it's the slightly off-time movement that gives it an otherworldly feel or the knowledge that an enormous amount of effort went into crafting every moment. Whatever the case may be, it doesn't get better than The Nightmare Before Christmas. It's the story of Pumpkin King Jack Skellington, who tires of the same spooky routine year after year and tries to sell the idea of Christmas to a town that can't imagine a holiday other than the one after which they're named. "How about it? Think you can manage?" but it's the wild, dreamlike union of Christmas and Halloween aesthetics that really draws you in and blows you away. You might call it...the Halloweenmas spirit. You can't explain how or why it works, you just know that, like peanut butter and jelly, it does. Food metaphors aside, we should all probably re-watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. It's a Halloweenmas tradition. 

It's been pointed out that, like the books upon which they're based, the Harry Potter movies grew up with their fans. The Sorcerer's Stone is pretty much a kiddie flick, but by the time we get to the second half of The Deathly Hallows, things have changed. Simply put, this is a war movie. Albus Dumbledore has been dead for a while now; Snape has seemingly joined the Death Eaters; and Voldemort, now aware of Harry, Ron and Hermione's quest to rid the world of his horcruxes, plans to kill Potter and crush Hogwarts into dust. It's violent, dark, truly scary in parts, and seemingly hopeless in others. And yet, despite all the blood and rubble, it never loses touch with the simple message that made the franchise so magical in the first place: that with courage and the help of friends, good can always triumph over evil. Maybe that's not always true in the real world, but The Deathly Hallows Part 2 invites us to a place where even a small bit of hope makes loss and suffering worth enduring. Stop-motion animated films are hard enough to make that the market has never been saturated with them, and each installment still feels special. Wes Anderson and Tim Burton have given us a few great ones, and Coraline very nearly made this list. But according to the critics, the one to beat in the 21st century so far is 2016's Kubo and the Two Strings. It's the story of Kubo, an eye-patched kid on the hunt for his missing father, who fights the evil forces of the Moon King. If that all sounds rather straightforward and generic, it's anything but. 

There's music that makes origami come to life, animal charms that become magical talking monkeys, a beetle samurai, enchanted weapons in forbidden places, and towering monsters guarding them. In the end, we learn a powerful lesson about family, redemption, and how we're defined by our memories. It's a gorgeous feat of filmmaking that refuses to hold your hand or bore you with shallow clich├ęs, and if you haven't seen it, you're in for a thrilling, emotional treat. Nobody in the history of film, other than perhaps Walt Disney, has done more to legitimize animation than legendary Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki. The mere mention of his name draws nods of reverence from fans. There's a good reason for this, too: his anime films, such as 1986's Castle in the Sky, 1988's My Neighbor Totoro, and 1997's Princess Mononoke, are consistently boundary-pushing, breathtaking and all-around wonderful. But 2001's Spirited Away, about a young girl who encounters a world filled with bizarre spirits, has transcended even these achievements and is frequently referenced not only as one of the best animated features, but as one of the greatest films ever made. It's also one of the most successful animated movies, raking in 347 million dollars on a 15-to-20 million dollar budget and beating out Titanic to become the highest-grossing film ever released in Japan. It won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Oscars, and its influence hasn't diminished in the years since its release. In 2016, the BBC asked 177 film critics what the best movies of the 21st century have been, and Spirited Away beat out every animated feature to come in an impressive fourth place overall. The next year, the New York Times gave it a second place finish over the same time period. Who said fantasy has to take itself seriously? Director Rob Reiner, known for 1989's When Harry Met Sally..., 1992's A Few Good Men, and 1984's This is Spinal Tap, adapted The Princess Bride in 1987. Based on William Goldman's 1973 novel of the same name, Bride is a laugh riot that both pokes fun at and celebrates fantasy tropes in equal measure. 

It's the story of a lowly farmhand, Westley, who befriends a vengeful sword master and a giant. The band sets off to rescue Westley's love, Princess Buttercup, from the evil Prince Humperdinck and his chief lieutenant, Count Rugen. Do we have to explain it? Come on, we know you've seen The Princess Bride. At the very least, you've undoubtedly heard enough quotes from it that you might as well have seen it. It's up there with Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Borat as one of the most quoted comedies of all time. "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father.
