#10 "Stand By Me"
Gordie, Teddy, Chris, and Vern decide to go on a quest to find the body of a missing boy. I don't know about you, but I don't think I would have had the balls to do this - no way.
In my opinion, this is the best version of the whole Peter Pan story. Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins are hilarious, especially during that pirate baseball game.
#8 "The Neverending Story"
Bookworm Sebastian reads the story of young warrior Atreyu as he tries save the world of Fantasia. I wanted a friggin' Luck Dragon for Christmas thanks to this movie.
I know I already did a feature on this movie, but it's absolutely necessary to include it on this list! You ever wonder what LOTR would be like with real hobbits? Yeah.
#6 "The Dark Crystal"
The world is split into two dominant races - the Skeksis and the Mystics. Jen and Kira are the lone Gelflings who must bring peace to the realm by finding the crystal shard.
#5 "Jurassic Park"
What happens when John Hammond decides to play God and recreate living dinosaurs? Well, all hell breaks loose of course. How long do you think you'd survive on that island?
#4 "The Goonies"
What kid doesn't want to go on an adventure like this? Mikey and the gang go on a mission to find the treasure of One-Eyed Willy, with the sinister Fratellis on their tail.
#3 "The Wizard Of Oz"
Call me childish, but I friggin' love this movie. It's a classic adventure story that still holds up today. You can't deny its epic nature, despite how much you hate the singing.
#2 "LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring"
When I read the first book, I knew that first movie was going be awesome. Nothing even compares to the theater experience I had when I saw this. I want to get my quest on, too.
#1 "Indiana Jones & the Raiders of the Lost Ark"
Duh, winning. Indiana Jones really solidified himself as the ultimate adventurer. The first installment is by far my favorite, and dare I say it - one of the best movies of all time.
