The NeverEnding Story. The first one. The two sequels don't exist. :evil:

Definitely the Harry Potter series. It's a whole other world! I love how Rowling wrapped up the end story!

The Starwars Franchise has been pretty awesome in gravitas and scope, but if we are talking same sort of feel to LOTR then maybe Narnia

I believe there are only two movies. What is this quadrilogy? =:)

The MCU is a good vs. evil epic set in modern times. Tragic heroes and everything.
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

I didn't much care for the second Indiana Jones movie.

I renamed it: Inbanana Jones And the Pimples of Gloom. :P

Can't recall ever having seen The Crystal Skull.

Deadpool. Though the second one was a mite slow, both were good. Would like to see another but not too soon.

Harry Potter franchise was pretty entertaining, but it is all Game of Thrones for me (even though it was HBO rather than an actual movie release)

I would LOVE to see Dragon Riders of Pern or Nine Princes in Amber taken from books to movies. It is a dream. Maybe that is a different thread???

Amazon talked about adapting Chronicles of Amber for Prime a couple years ago, but there's been no updates. Possibly the decided to go with LOTR instead. Possibly it was not the best decision.

Frelga lady. I didn't know that. And time will tell on the adaptation of LotR's for Prime. I would MUCH rather have seen the Amber series. How fun would that have been. Intrigue at the palace....and everywhere else in and out of Amber. All the princes and princesses. I love that you know these books by Zelazny...seems I recall you and I talking about that before many moons ago on a far away thread.
