The 1980s were a special time for some reasons. We had neon-hued clothes, synthesizer music, huge hair, enormous shoulder pads and the Rubik’s Cube. Add to the rundown of 1980s are the fantasy movies that were genuinely marvellous and unusual. So, we have here for you, the 10 best fantasy movies from the 1980s.
10. Labyrinth (1986)
Prominent for featuring singer David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King, Labyrinth was a hit when released in1986 summers. The motion picture focuses on a 15-year-old young lady named Sarah (on-screen character Jennifer Connelly) who inadvertently wishes her baby half-brother, Toby, away to the Goblin King Jareth. As it is, the Goblin King is for real and he wants to keep Toby unless Sarah discovers her way through an unsafe Labyrinth in 13 hours. This film has not matured well, and instead of resembling a goblin or a lord, David Bowie looks more like a mid-1980s rocker in skin tight spandex pants, a leather jacket and highly teased hair. Labyrinth includes a great deal of puppets that, when contrasted with today’s CGI effects, resemble, well, puppets. Fascinating that both George Lucas of Star Wars popularity and Jim Henson who made the Muppets were included in making this motion picture.
9. Legend (1985)
This film features a youthful Tom Cruise and was directed by Ridley Scott. The film is about an evil spirit, played by on-screen character Tim Curry, who wants to create eternal darkness by annihilating the last of the unicorns and wedding a fairy princess. Tom Cruise plays a forest kid named Jack who battles against the devil with assistance from his elven allies. The movie contains a hip synthesizer-fuelled soundtrack by the synth-pop group called Tangerine Dream. It alsofeatures a considerable measure of cloven-hoofed kids brandishing bows and arrows. This is not a film that surfaces a great deal when individuals discuss Tom Cruise’s profession.
