    This is an awesome thread Delight!! So far I've watched Timescape – Distaster in Time, Quest for Love, The Lathe of Heaven, and The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan. I'm going to watch Serenity next lol . I don't know how I missed some of these!! I've seen a few of these already but still have a several left to watch that look really good.

    I want to add “The 4400” to this thread. It's a tv series but I loved it! All 4 seasons are available on NetFlix. Here's a trailer:



    Also, I recently watched a mini-series (8 episodes) called “The Returned”. The audio is in French and subtitles in English. I normally avoid subtitles but this was really good! I believe it is based on the film, Les Revenants, that was originally aired in France:

    Here's a trailer:



    Oh, and I'm looking forward to the series “Resurrection” starting in March, the American version of “The Returned”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resurre...U.S._TV_series)

    If we're including TV shows, there as a zombie mini-series on the BBC that wasn't really your average zombie show. It was dark, sad and really makes you think about what it means to "be alive". Also, it pokes a stick at bigotry and hypocrisy.

    There's something that doesn't make sense. Let's go and poke it with a stick.

    Posted on another thread here http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...l=1#post801902

    "Ink (2009)" is one of the most original movies I have seen.



    And it reminded me of another MOST original film "Primer (2004)". Both deserve multiple viewings to grok

    I could not watch Pan's Labyrinth before because it felt terrible ...maybe can now?

    "Willow (1988)" fits here.



    it is here

    Also The NeverEnding Story (1984)

    I don't really recall Willow, but I do recall the "feelings" and associations I got from it. Perhaps I'll have to dig that out again. I was young when I watched that originally.

    And I'll second The Dark Crystal, weird but really cool. I was also young when I first watched that, I found it completely fascinating. Jim Henson's best IMHO.

    Here's another all time fav of mine.

    What Dreams May Come
    You reminded me of Robin Williams
    "Jumanji (1995)"



    and "August Rush (2007)"(modern fairy tale with lovely music)

    Not really on the "chick flick" end of things but I always loved "Time Bandits" -- another childhood favourite - and the last 10 minutes or so is profound, IMHO.

    Rachel McAdams was beautiful in "About Time". A really uplifting love story where time travel comes in real handy. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2194499/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_6

    She also did "The Time Traveler's Wife" in 2009.
