I think it is well worth adding "The Messenger" to the list of films to watch if only for the extremely, well-created 15th century battle sequences...

In addition to the many fine selections already mentioned, I would add Matilda to the list. "Javelin. Shot put. Hammer throw!"
Fiery Dragon rocks!
World's Largest Graveyard

"Life's too short to play crappy games." - JoeGKushner

Sadly, in the eight years since this thread was started, I can't think of more than a handful of mediocre to genuinely good fantasy movies that have been released. That's pretty abysmal.

First thing we might need is a good definition of fantasy.

Excluding LOTR, I'd go with:
Conan the Barbarian
The Emerald Knight at your Service!

On the flipside, perhaps the worst fantasy movie of recent times, or perhaps just the biggest disappointment, was The Seeker (based on The Dark Is Rising).
What do we say to the God of Death?

no particular order; 10 of my favorites:
Beastmaster (I enjoyed the whole series.)
The Hobbit (the old cartoon version; surprised nobody has mentioned it)
Conan (both movies)
Clash of The Titans (I still prefer the old movie over the remake.)
The Wizard of Oz
Son of Hercules**
*as others have pointed out, 13th Warrior isn't exactly fantasy, but that movie is very very close to how I imagine a lot of gritty fantasy in my head.
** I'm unsure what the actual name of this movie is. I remember watching it on VHS while at my grandmother's house a long time ago. I tried doing a google search to find the movie I was thinking of, but my memory of the plot doesn't seem to match up with the search results I got.
I remember the main character being the Son of Hercules. During some early fight scenes between the kingdom which most of the movie takes place in and the enemy, there's a crackle of thunder and a warrior dressed somewhat like a stereotypical spartan appears. This mystery warrior turns the tide of a losing battle. Eventually, he is revealed to be the 'Son of Hercules.'
As a kid, I remember thinking the guy playing the Son of Hercules sorta had a big nose.
I remember there being a scene where he was in some sort of temple with a lot of women. Possibly a temple to Aphrodite, but I don't remember. I mostly remember the head priestess trying to convince the protagonist to stay with her and forget life outside. Through a combination of wine and eye candy, she tried to fog his mind, but eventually he willed himself to want to leave. I believe there may have been a female lead who was the reason why he wanted to leave.
I think I also remember a scene in which the protagonist was yelling at the sky and having a one-sided conversation with Hercules (who at this point had apparently ascended to godhood.) The conversation was about the struggles of living as a mortal on the mortal world.
The movie was in color, but I know it was a rather old movie. While my memory of it is vague, I remember it being a movie I liked. I watched it quite often when I would visit, but it's been so long that I still do not recall the name nor some of the other details about it.
