So i'm quite a fan of fantasy [and sci-fi too], so i thought we could recommend movies to one another that fit the genre

Some favourites of mine:

Labyrinth
The Princess Bride
Legend
Fantaghiro' [all of them]
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe [both old and new versions]
Merlin
The Mists of Avalon

I'll also include:
Highlander [all of them]
Strange Days

that's all I can think of for now. i'll add more later

i also forget to include the Neverending Story. shame on me

oh and i love movies based on comic books
i agree on Iron Man 1&2 - Hellboy was decent. I also particularly love all Batman movies, Catwoman, Spawn [movie, as i have yet to watch the animated one], The Incredible Hulk [with Edward Norton], X-Men [all 3 + X-men origins], Daredevil, Ghostrider.

oh, and Space Balls is indeed epic haven't watched it in a long long time!

Also, i really like 'Earth Girls Are Easy' though it isn't reeeaaaaaally sci-fi nor fantasy.

The Gremlins also deserve to be mentioned.

and i quite liked Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story.

Clash Of The Titans (the good version)
Jason & The Argonaughts
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad
The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
Sinbad & The Eye Of The Tiger...
... basically anything Ray Harryhausen worked on is epic.

Nobody said lord of the rings trilogy from the Jackson One.

When you have a arguement with an idiot, the most tangible proof that he's an idiot is his unability to leave peacefully a discussion that can obviously bring nothing.

Leprechaun 4: In Space

When did we start losing the once inevitable In Space sequels? It's a shame.

The Doctor Who movies were good for their time. Not as good as the show though.

re: Comic Book movies, i just finished watching Watchmen and it's better than i thought it would be. I'm not familiar with the actual comic it's based on, but it's more raw and violent and intellectually stimulating that most. which is good.

and also, i wanted to include V for Vendetta.... that, is a brilliant one indeed!

V is great, "watchmen" the movie kind of sucked in the end, it has NOTHING to do with the original graphic novel. I had read it many years ago and had high hopes for the movie and how they would pull it off...alas, what could have been brilliant turned out to be average. I now have a special edition to watch which includes the pirate chronicles, might improve things a bit but wont change the fact they butchered the plot
