Top 12 Best Dragon Moviesby The_Lord_ZXV | created - 18 Jun 2012 | updated - 14 Dec 2015 | Public
Few basic things
Dragon has to look like a dragon. Flying beasts that Nazguls ride are close but those are not dragons, even though they look like one.
Dragons need to be in important part of the movie.
No animated movies, those are too superior (How to Train your Dragon would be best with the sequel)
Few of these picks are pretty close to each other so order is not totally complete.
Sad thing is that moviemakers don't often even try. These creatures are big thing when done right. Which is very rare.
Not in complete order, since few of these are pretty difficult to put in order...
And sad thing is, many of these are not that good. Tells a lot about the focus on dragon related movies overall.
