Aside from the brief craze in the 1980s when “ Krull ” and “ Conan ” and the like roamed theaters, fantasy had never been a particularly popular genre for filmmakers to tackle —principally because it was too expensive, and also because too few filmmakers took it seriously. But that changed at the start of this century, as the “Harry Potter ” and “ Lord Of The Rings ” films more or less took over Hollywood. Fantasy’s predominance has continued apace, with the distinctly adult “ Game Of Thrones ” becoming the most popular and critically acclaimed TV show worldwide.

The latest exponent is “ Warcraft ,” from director Duncan Jones , the son of David Bowie. The adaptation of the wildly popular video game franchise, which sees the battling of men and orcs, opens tomorrow having culled mostly poor reviews ( here’s our middling one ) and little likelihood of domestic box office success. But with the film breaking records in China (where the video game is huge), it may yet unleash another big multi-episode franchise.

But if “Warcraft” isn’t great, that doesn’t mean that other excellent fantasy films haven’t followed in the wake of the Tolkien and Rowling adaptations —though to be honest, there are fewer all-out classics in this genre than in many that we’ve given the Best of the Century treatment to previously. But as a sort of genre-flavored alternative to yesterday’s massive, arthouse-heavy  50 Best Foreign Language Films Of The Century , we’ve curated this list of our 20 favorite fantasy films since the year 2000.
