DragonslayerDragonslayer (1981)
Dir. Matthew Robbins
Feat. Peter MacNicol, Caitlin Clarke, Ralph Richardson
Highly under-rated medieval fantasy in which a young wizard defies substantial and often thrilling odds to defeat a malevolent dragon. Breakthrough special effects provided by ILM breathe palpable life (and fire) into the dragon creation known as Vermithrax.
Spider-ManSpider-Man (2002)
Dir. Sam Raimi
Feat. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe
New-improved re-spinning of the Marvel comic book superhero that finds a perfect match of material and director, and the crucially inspired casting of Tobey Maguire as web-boy Peter Parker. It’s classic teenage outcast fantasy stuff – the nerd who gets to impress the girl (Kirsten Dunst) by kicking…
Sweet CountrySweet Country (2017)
Dir. Warwick Thornton
Feat. Hamilton Morris, Sam Neill, Bryan Brown
A sparse and beautifully shot film from the director of SAMSON AND DELILAH, telling a profound morality tale of almost biblical proportions, and putting a new, racially charged and uniquely Australian spin on a classic Western tale.
Black PantherBlack Panther (2018)
Dir. Ryan Coogler
Feat. Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
Another massive hit, and considered one of the best of the eighteen films in the Marvel Comic Universe, and the first to feature a predominantly black cast. Chadwick Boseman as the character of T'Challa fleshes out his supporting role in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR when he returns home as the King of…
Jumanji: Welcome to the JungleJumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)
Dir. Jake Kasdan
Feat. Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart
Reboot of the beloved 90's adventure, with four high school kids discovering an old video game console that transforms them into the avatars they chose to play the game with. Sadly (for us!), it's targeted more for younger viewers than nostalgic adults.
Robin HoodRobin Hood (2010)
Dir. Ridley Scott
Feat. Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max von Sydow
Reuniting GLADIATOR director Ridley Scott with star Russell Crowe, this brawnier, grittier update of the Sherwood forest legend surveys the origins of the famed archer and his merry posse.
BeowulfBeowulf (2007)
Dir. Robert Zemeckis
Feat. Angelina Jolie, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins
Originally earmarked for 3D IMAX cinemas, this groundbreaking animation brings to screen the Old English epic of hero Beowulf (Winstone) and his quest to defeat the flesh-eating, foul-looking, Danish fun-hating monster Grendel and his fiercely protective witchy woman of a mother (Jolie, in anachronistic yet…
