Leah Schnelbach has put out a Ranking of 1980s Fantasy That Would Please Crom Himself!.
I’ve seen most of the eighteen movies she profiles, although I somehow missed Cave Dwellers, both as itself and its MST3K episode. In any case, her rational for each pick is well reasoned.
Still, the top three fantasy movies from the ’80s are clearly:
1) The Princess Bride
I will suffer no dispute!…
Technically, these are the ten best 2014 movies that I saw. If your favorite isn’t on the list, I probably didn’t see it.

You’re working on a sequel to Outbreak, and a major plot point is that the nurse who has been exposed to the disease is told by the CDC that it’s ok to fly with a low grade fever.
Do you think there would be resistance to the realism of this point in a pitch meeting?
Reality is stranger than fiction, because this has now happened.
It’s not too often that I underestimate …
I was on the road last week, so I’m just now getting around to posting my thoughts on developments of the last few days.
Thomas Eric Duncan, the patent diagnosed with Ebola in Dallas, passed away this week. Sad, but not surprising. There’s legitimate reasons that this disease is so scary.
