6.Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is one of the fantasy adventure movies. This is the story of Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), an ordinary 11-year-old boy who acts as an enslaved person for his aunt and uncle, learns that he is a wizard, and is invited to study at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry is snatched from his ordinary life by Hogwarts' groundsman, Rubeus Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane), and is soon thrown into a completely foreign world to him and his audience. Famous for an incident that occurred at birth, Harry makes friends easily at his new school. However, he soon discovers that the wizarding world is much more dangerous to him than he thought, and he soon realizes that not all wizards are trustworthy.


An important event in the Sorcerer's Stone is Harry's choice. He said to the branch cap, If you don't go to Slytherin, as long as it's not Slytherin, the branch cap said, Are you sure? You go there. You can achieve great things. He bravely made a choice and was even willing to give up the possibility of achieving great things in this choice. I saw Harry's fearless courage and courage as early as this moment. Pure nerve and outstanding courage (Dumbledore gave him extra points at the end of the first part). This incident also appeared in a separate conversation between Dumbledore and Harry so that Harry could have more powerful energy. Dumbledore points out, The point is on what you choose. We have few choices in our lives. You are often not accessible when you want to make a choice, and you dare not do it when you can. My courage to make choices comes from the Harry Potter movie, but it did let me know the importance of choosing when I was very young.

8.Big Fish (2003)

Ewan McGregor in Big Fish


Big Fish, one of the fantasy movies on Netflix, tells that United Press International correspondent Will Bloom and his French freelance photojournalist wife Josephine Bloom, pregnant with their first child, left their Paris base to return to Will's hometown of Ashton, Alabama, with the news that his father, Edward Bloom, had cancer and would soon die, and that he would stop chemotherapy. Although indirectly connected through Will's mother/Edward's wife, Sandra Bloom, Will has been estranged from his father for three years since his marriage to Josephine. The problem with Will and his father is that Edward has been telling his fantasy stories all his life, not only to Will but to the world. When Edward was a child, he was largely absent from his position as a traveling salesman, and Will believed these stories, but now realizes that he did not know his father as he continued to tell them and that he would never know the truth unless Edward told it before he died. On the verge of starting his own family life, Will doesn't want to be the kind of father Edward has always been to him. One of Edward's childhood stories - that he saw his death in the glass eyes of a witch - led him to embrace life because he didn't have to fear death because he knew when and how it would eventually come. The question is whether Will can reconcile Edward's story with his real life, directly from before Edward's death and other sources, thus giving Will a new understanding of himself and his life, past, present, and future. It is one of the good fantasy movies.
