    I don't believe anyone has mentioned "The Dark Crystal" yet, a fantasy about elvish beings, very clever special effects. Also, "Dragonslayer", in which a wizard is killed, and then his ashes are cast over an underground lake, and he is magically reconstituted to kill a dragon.

    One of the Care Bears movies- it had some evil demon type creature in it.

    I hope anyone considering becoming a jw reads this thread. Seriously, this is so illustrative of a high control religion with a lot of wacky ideas! As if the one and only true god would re

    I remember not being allowed to see Stayin Alive etc., because it shows disco, which is practicing spiritism and homosexuality. How ridiculous!
