Great Adventure Movies / The Best Adventure Moviesby jefaud | created - 22 Jun 2011 | updated - 8 months ago | Public
Adventure and Action movies often get lumped together as one genre. This is a list of Adventure movies that I have assembled. I really love some of them. Others are not so good. I add new ones as I remember them or find them. You won't find many sci-fi / fantasy movies on this list. (including LOTR, Harry Potter, Princess Bride etc...) I was really going for the whole Indiana Jones type genre.
