Fantasy, fantasy, what are fantasy movies? Well, I can tell you what they’re not. They’re not movies about you winning the lottery. They’re not  movies about you getting an A in that class you've never attended. And they’re definitely not movies about the Kardashians retiring from public life. So what are the fantasy movies streaming on Netflix? They’re magical romances like Big Fish, reinvented fairy tales like Stardust, and comic book favorites like Hellboy. Mostly they’re just darn good movies.

Not to be missed on this list of fantasy movies on Netflix streaming is the sixties sci-fi flick Barbarella which includes a famous “strip-tease in space” by Jane Fonda—a very young Jane Fonda. Also on the list is the rather interesting flick, Horns. Thats a movie where Daniel Radcliffe grows horns from his forehead.

Anyway, dig into this list of fantasy movies on Netflix. Fantasy movies are where fantasy can actually become reality. ... If you just believe.
