Alecia Stone's favorite sci-fi and fantasy movies

The following post is by Alecia Stone. She is the author of Talisman Of El, a novel with a gorgeous hero, thrilling emotions, romance and intrigue.

Being a fan of sci-fi and fantasy movies since childhood, many films have inspired my imagination and as such have inspired Talisman Of El. I’ve watched many movies, so this one was hard to compile, but I think the list below features a range of movies that I can say have been both an inspiration and are also slightly similar, whether in plot or theme, to the elements in my novel.

10. Harry Potter
















2. Narnia

  7. For me the heartbreaker is a bad boy who goes kicking and screaming into love! When he falls he falls hard!

    The only heartbreakers I have encountered are literary! And my all time fav is Mr Darcy! Although, I am currently crushing on Zadist from the Black Dagger Brotherhood!

  16. Favorite Sci-Fi movie? That's a tough one because they are all so good. I could go with Avatar, Back to the Future, or Inception, but are these really my favorites? Hmmm. I think I'll go with Innerspace or maybe the Planet of the Apes movies (original). I just can't answer this one. Would War Games count as sci-fi? Dean Koonz and John Saul write great sci-fi, but the movies never do the books justice.

  30. I love the choices of movies you listed. Several are in my top 10 of movies that I love. Goonies and The Wizard of Oz are by far two of the best movies ever. My absolute favorite fantasy movies are Jurassic Park and The Lord of the Rings. Im dying to see The Hobbit! I read the books when I was a kid and I think that is where my love of reading stemmed from. Thanks so much for being a part of this awesome blog hop. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

  36. My favorite sci-fi fantasy movie =
    THE SPIDER LABYRINTH

    The Spider Labyrinth is an obscure oddity of Italian horror cinema from the late Eighties. It emerges as a curious entwinement of HP Lovecraft-inspired mythos, giallo trimmings, gothic horror atmospherics and occult conspiracy narratives, creating a highly moody and surprisingly gripping yarn.

    Story: A professor of languages working on a project translating ancient tablets from a pre-Christian religion travels to Budapest to find a colleague who has ceased communication, and return with his research. Shortly after he arrives, his ailing and strangely paranoid colleague is found dead. As the young professor delves deeper into the research, he finds himself increasingly entangled in a web of paranoia, grotesque murders and a bizarre cult determined to keep their existence a secret.
