As the box office busting numbers of recent films such as “Thor: The Dark World,” ($187 million) “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” ($296 million) and the upcoming “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” (opens December 13)
might suggest, the market has never been better for fantasy adventure blockbusters. For some reason we can’t get enough of noble characters in imaginary worlds fighting the powers of darkness with edged weapons. What films from this genre would you put on your fantasy team? Put your choices in the comments section or drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is Monday, December 9. We’ll be running the top five on December 15.
