Yes, It’s Another List, this Time for Quirky Fantasy Fans

And it’s twenty-five more than quirky fantasy movies in all, starting with Fritz Lang’s 1924 two-part DIE NIBELUNGEN and including ones like Jodorowsky’s  THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, THE SEVEN FACES OF DR. LAO, and Richard Elfman’s FORBIDDEN thief-of-bagdad-djinnZONE (yes, the one with the rendition of “Minnie the Moocher” by The Mystic Knights of the Oingo-Boingo and Marie-Pascale Elfman in the role of “Frenchy”).  It’s “25 Cult Fantasy Films That Are Worth Your Time” by Paul J. VanTassle on TASTEOFCINEMA.COM, belatedly courtesy of Mike Olson (who actually posted it Thursday, but sometimes it takes me a little while to read my  email) via ON THE EDGE CINEMA.  And I’ve actually seen — and even own! — an admirable number of these myself, but be that as it may, you *MUST* check it out by pressing here.
