Well, who doesn’t enjoy a bit of dreams and fantasy. I have been dreaming of getting myself an owl, not as a pet but for passing information from here to there (who wants the internet anyway?). I always wanted an Invisibility Cloak, a Wand and if possible a Broom. Call me a romantic or a child not grown up, I enjoy travelling into the world of werewolves and witches, where reality and dreams merges and separates as easily as ever and where an ordinary broom can become a luxury car and a book can hold untold mysteries.
Here is my list of best fantasy movies of all time:
- The Harry Potter Series: I have grown up watching Harry Potter and his two friends, Hermione and Ron. This is perhaps the most famous fantasy movie to ever hit the screens. The books, by the same name, written by J.K. Rowling went on to become so famous that serpentine queues were seen outside famous stores selling these books. The stories, though, focused on Harry and how he defeats Lord Voldermort (He Who Must Not Be Named!), there was something for the children to learn from. It inspired many to actually get back to reading.
- Avatar: The magnum opus of sorts of James Cameroon, was an Oscar winning movie. Some movies manage to take us to different worlds and different times, but this movie went a step ahead. It took us to another planet altogether. The planet in question is Pandora. The movie, though, exceptionally great to look at, brought a greater meaning. It made us question ourselves and the manner in which we are treating the world and its beings.
- The Pirates of the Caribbean Series: This is a great movie to watch anytime of the day. It is funny and comes with many nail-biting moments as well. Jack Sparrow is perhaps the world’s most loved Pirate and his ship the best looking ship ever. Jack Sparrow, played to perfection by Johnny Depp, is a treat to watch.
These three movies manage to take us to a world of imagination and make us wonder at reality. Sometimes, the reality is so much boring that it doesn’t hurt to dwell in the world of dreams.
