A Song of Ice and Fire author, George R R Martin has compiled a list of his favourite fantasy films along with comments on each on news website The Daily Beast. It’s an interesting list and contains several movies I haven’t seen and should check out – also at least one that I’d like to watch again (I saw Pan’s Labyrinth in Korea without the benefit of English subtitles).

The Lord of the Rings trilogy comes top of the list. Commenting on Peter Jackson’s magnum opus GRRM says, ‘If you don’t like these films, you don’t like fantasy.’
