Top 10 Classic D&D Movies

What, no love for The Princess Bride?




"13th Warrior" has always seemed the most like D&D adventures I have played and run... or at least, how I'd hoped they'd run....

I was excited to see Beastmaster when it came out. I was extremely disgusted when I actually saw it.
It's a horrible mangling of the book "Beastmaster" by Andre Norton.
It's a scifi story with the main character being an ex-military esper who lead a beastmaster sabotage team, and was also a descendant of terran american indians. As to the ferrets, they were supposed to be a pair of meerkats.
If you want to know more, just read the book, I'm sure your local library has it.
Also, here's a link to a small wiki article on it, but still, read the book. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beast_Master

Awesome, a couple on there that I hadn't heard of. If someone made a larger list, don't forget the old animated Hobbit movie!


Just watched Hawk the Slayer...why is the dark lord broke? He seems to really need that 2,000 gold pieces. He has a pretty large army...couldn't he just take it?

I cast "Baconstorm!"
Fantasy movies that I recall as D&D-inspirational but weren't on the list:
- Princess Bride
- Willow
- Dark Crystal
- Never Ending Story
- Clash of the Titans

Oh, and E.T., because I found the D&D references fascinating as a kid.
Disappointing was The Dungeonmaster. I was hard to disappoint at age 12, but man was that movie disappointing.


Hawk, the cheesy movie that keeps on giving. Hell, Hawk's part of my Amberos campaign.

I'll also add Fire & Ice as well as The Last Unicorn to the list of D&D great movies from the past. Then there's always Dark Crystal.

The Goonies, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ghostbusters, Stargate, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Treasure Planet, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl... I'm sure there's a bunch of others I can't remember. :p

Somebody should take all the movies posted in this thread and make it poll to see which ones are the favorites...

I feel deprived that I haven't seen (or heard of) a few of the movies on that list. I'm not sure how I missed them, since they aren't any older than the ones I have seen. Of course, it might be painful to watch them now for the first time. Nostalgia is powerful magic.

The animated Lord of the Rings movie that was released unfinished due to either lack of money or a licensing issue.

A second for Wizards. Never has a mom taught a son a better spell then Conjure Luger.

Some other crappy movies that have not been mentioned:

The Warrior and the Sorceress
Ator the Fighting Eagle
The Blade Master
Barbarian Queen
Barbarian Queen II The Empress Strikes Back
Yor the Hunter from the Future
Hearts & Armor


Princess Bride and Clash of the Titans (original) really needed to be on here as quintessential D&D-esque adventures.

There is a Russian movie from 2006 called Wolfhound that is an excellent source of ideas and would definitely recommend. Also, an animated movie from 1982 called The Flight of Dragons had quite a few big names, and it's what inspired me to get into fantasy when I was a kid. Definitely a must watch movie.
