RE: Favorite Fantasy Films

All the 'categories' are to me, somewhat offputting.

is something like the Gene Wilder take on Willie Wonka a fantasy?

So I'm less concerned with calling something 'X' or 'Y' than simply 'Is it well done?'

My brother didn't like SciFi. I couldn't get him to sit thru Forbidden Planet! 'THEM' was out of the question. Yet he found 'The Martian' to be engaging.

The reason I find categories weird is I can't figure out where MANY movies fit. For example? Clint Eastwood did 'Unforegiven'. Western? Morality play? Fantasy, even? Historical Drama?

Directors Cut of Blade Runner is terrific. That my be yet ANOTHER category: 'Dystopian Future'. Stuff like Arnie in Running Man (the?) and Idiocracy (funny stuff) both qualify.

No, for ME, categories is a tough sell. Just entertain me!
Too much is never enough
