Question of the Day

I’m a very visual writer.  I can’t write what I don’t see in my head.  Consequently, in addition to reading a lot, I love to watch movies.  Name one of your favorite fantasy and/or romance movies.

One of my favorite romances is The Lake House with Sandra Bullock & Keanu Reeves. It’s so well written I’m still finding hidden clues every time I watch.

Lord of the Rings, the hobbut,, avatar, last air bender, twilight series

Lindsi Clark

Star Wars. The original trilogy. So much action, so many subplots… Han and Leia’s love story was special because it was so subtle. And later you found out it was tragic as well. But it was powerful.

Tina M.

Fantasy favorite is The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. I have also read the books. Romance movie is P.S. I Love You

Hannah Robinson

My favorite fantasy movie is hands down Lord of the Rings. In general I love fantasy. I giggled and got a huge smile when Elves we’re introduced in the Tairen Soul series.

Amanda Hopwood

Australia is my favorite romance movie.

Jenny Dorsett

I would have to say that my favorite fantasy movie is Harry potter.

Molly Shahly

  on October 29, 2017 :

For fantasy, I love Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings, The Pricess Bride and Willow!

Kat T.

  on October 29, 2017 :

My favorite romantic fantasy movie is Stardust. I really loved the story and the movie was just so well done. Even the villains were amazing. This is a rare case in which I thought that the movie is better than the book.

Kyla Kreutzer

  on October 29, 2017 :

I enjoy Lord of the Rings, and things like the Percy Jackson movies (although a bit tame on the romance), and I know you said movies, but tv series like True Blood, Game of Thrones, and Outlander. Funny enough, they’re all based on books lol!

Melissa Esser

  on October 29, 2017 :

My fav fantasy movie is probably Avatar. I love the special effects. Also sonce it is almost Halloween Hocus Pocus!


  on October 29, 2017 :

So many but here are just a few romance and fantasy movies I love: Harry Potter, King Arthur (with Charlie Hunnam), the Hobbit trilogy, Leap Year, and Maid in Manhattan.

OMG, I can’t believe I forgot to mention The Princess Bride! Inconceivable!

The music is very dated now but Ladyhawke is a favourite for fantasy and romance. LOTR was fantastic even though I kept wishing for Aragon to wash his hair.

Rex Anne

How to Train Your Dragon (Movie and TV series)

The action and the storyline get to me. It teaches friendship but it has the amazing dragons with Scandinavian history (which is pretty cool). It has a touch of romance to it but mostly I love Hiccup and Toothless. Haha! There is a book series but it is markedly different from the movie.

Lindsey Bryant

  on October 29, 2017 :

I have many that I enjoy. picking a favorite is so difficult! but the first that comes to mind is the Tenth Kingdom.

Amanda Warner

  on October 29, 2017 :

I love the movie Legend with Tom Cruise (as Jack) and Tim Curry (as Darkness).

Nichole B

  on October 29, 2017 :

Any of the epic movies like Lord of the rings, the hobbit, and even star wars. Also love anime.

Mathilda S

  on October 29, 2017 :

I love Willow, and Lord of the Rings, and the Hobbit. I also like “Definitely Maybe” and “Eat Pray Love”.
