80's fantasy flicks

ok, im trying to make a definitive collection of 80's fantasy flicks. not to go over the line though into the realm of the no redeeming value stuff. ie. any deathstalker sequels, sheena, etc here's what i have so far (owned and on order). just looking for some input on titles worth adding. thanks


The Princess Bride
Conan: The Complete Quest
The Dark Crystal
The NeverEnding Story
Clash of the Titans


The Sword and the Sorcerer

Red Sonja isnt out yet in the US. it is available as part of a 4 disc armold package in the UK (or so i hear). anyway, its release is this summer sometime, and i figure its one i can pick up somewhere at a good price. just because its arnold.....

anyway, any input is welcomed

Not your traditional fantasy, but one I've always liked:

I always liked Sword of the Valiant: The Legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (1982). It stars Sean Connery as the Green Knight. It's a little cheesy, about like Beastmaster but I've always liked it.

There is one problem: it's not available in widescreen, MGM bastages.

I actually found Deathstalker II to be far more entertaining than the original. Also Fire and Ice is good, but not availble on DVD in the States.

Would Back to the Future be considered a fantasy? If so, I'd definitely include it. It's not like it's a realistic plot, with time travel and all. I wasn't sure what you'd really call it, if you use the term "fantasy" to refer to films with mythical warriors who fight dragons, etc.
