Favorite Action/Adventure Film?

28 posts in this topic

Without looking at the other replies in this thread, I'll rattle off a few of my favorites:

"Fantasy action adventures". Meh! Though its not a genre I ever give much thought to, nor ever dwell on overmuch. I dislike Indiana Jones, and I have a hard time coming up with very many titles, but here goes:

  • The Long Ships
  • The Thief of Baghdad
  • The Adventures of Robin Hood
  • Jason and the Argonauts
  • Le Belle et la Bette
  • Black Orpheus
  • Orphee'
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth
  • Journey to the Top of the World
  • She
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Gunga Din
  • The Man Who Would Be King
  • Time Bandits
  • The Naked Prey
  • Seven Faces of Doctor Lao
  • Time After Time
  • The Time Machine
  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
  • Hidden Fortress
  • The Mark of Zorro
  • The Court Jester
  • The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad
  • The Flame and the Arrow
  • The Crimson Pirate
  • Swashbuckler
  • any Errol Flynn romp
  • Seven Seas to Calais
  • The Naked Jungle
  • Secret of the Incas

From the list I posted just above --if I have to pick just one purely fantasy adventure --it would be Korda's 'Thief of Baghdad' even though I did not grow up with it. I'd be willing to name it the top all-time fantasy.

The others in the list can mostly be classed variously such as 'action adventure' or what-have-you. And therefore discounted. For instance, 'Robin Hood' is not a fantasy action adventure.
