Television has seen a marked jump in quality in recent years, bashing the age-old mindset of television playing second fiddle to the big screen. But not anymore. Now, television sees a level of production hitherto unseen before. From rooted crime shows to epic fantasies riddled with magical creatures, television has it all. And perhaps no-show has influenced the modern viewer more than ‘Game of Thrones’ (GoT).
Certainly the most famous fantasy show of all time, ‘GoT’ is a rollercoaster ride of action, intrigue, deception, love, and war. Based on George R.R. Martin’s magnum opus, the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series, the show is a masterful and technically astonishing adaptation of the acclaimed books. ‘GoT’ has become an intrinsic part of pop culture, with its complex characters, its painstakingly detailed world building, and the ease with which it lends itself to the fandom culture.
If you are looking for other places to satiate your fill of dragons and armies, love and deceit, look no further than these fantastic movies similar to Game of Thrones that are our recommendations. You can stream some of these Game of Thrones like films on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
12. Stardust (2007)
Neil Gaiman is a master storyteller who seems to weave incredulous stories from his endless talent, and enriches the same with his thoroughly unique understanding of what constitutes fantasia. This 2007 film adaptation manages to carry over the same. It stars a delightful ensemble cast starring Claire Danes, Mark Strong, Robert de Niro, Ricky Gervais among many others. Led by Charlie Cox as Tristan, it is his quest to find a fallen star for his crush (Sienna Miller) from a magical kingdom beyond a hidden wall that leads him to uncover his own secret destiny. ‘Stardust’ is a fun watch, and one that may just remind ‘GoT’ fans of Jon Snow as they watch the slightly awkward but thoroughly determined Tristan.
