Genre Movie List (with TV Bits!)

A recently bumped thread on ENWorld.org brought my eyes back to a list of genre movies (including some made-for-TV) that I have found inspirational.  Though I have posted before about the pedigree of the Grymvald setting, I thought it might be nice to house a larger list of movies, videos, and TV series that are fantastical in nature (or that have a science fiction, some action/adventure/sword-fighting and/or Medieval, Dark Age, Ancient World, or Mythological themes that easily cross over for tabletop hobby gaming).  I've expanded on that original list, including some that are not yet released, and added links here to IMDb.com for easy reference.  There are a few animated features and animated television series on the list but I won't be adding many more, just those that are tied to classics like the ones listed.  I'm only passingly familiar with anime and feel that would require a separate list put together elsewhere by someone more familiar than I.  If you start one and it becomes fairly extensive, let me know and I'll see about linking to it at the bottom of this list.  This is far from complete so feel free to drop me a line or add a comment with something that could be added.  Enjoy!
