    Well pal, I'm not real sure what you would consider a fairy tale and not, but if it is acceptable, I'd like to nominate the following:
    Labyrinth
    Time Bandits
    The Crow
    Sleepy Hollow
    I know The Crow is pushing it, so if that isn't what you had in mind, replace it with Willow.

    I would say The Crow is alright. I would say it's more of a comic book movie, that has a Fairy tale feel to it(all be it a strange one) So I let it go. Besides I might need it trying to get to 32 movies.

    I share the increasingly common annoyance with seeing the same titles over and over again. In fact, as much as I love the Lord of the Rings movies, I must admit I wish they weren't in this tourney.

    Who said I was angry, though? Where did you get "anger" from? Heart attack... huh?
