A Few Favorite Fantasy TV Shows and Movies
Posted by: Veronica Scott
Over at USA Today Happily Ever After blog I'm interviewing other science fiction and fantasy authors about their favorite scifi TV shows and movies. Since it was my day to blog here, I thought I'd talk about some of my favorites in the fantasy genre.
Let's just start with Lord of the Rings and get that out of the way because I think the Peter Jackson movies are going to remain at the top of my list for a very long time. I was most fascinated by the elves, especially Elrond and his home in Rivendell. I'd go there in a flash! Aragorn, perfectly portrayed by Viggo Mortensen, Eomer perfectly portrayed by Karl Urban....why exactly wasn't there more of him in the movies??? One of my favorite small moments is when the White Tree in Gondor puts forth a single white flower because Aragorn is going to be king.
I liked the old "Jason and the Argonauts," especially the scenes on Mount Olympus and the way the goddess Hera could talk to Jason through the figurehead of his ship...
As far as TV shows, I got totally addicted to "Charmed."
So what are some of your favorite fantasy movies or TV shows?
