Fantasy films offer a unique depiction of stories stemming from our deepest pools of imaginations. Sometimes it’s difficult to find that perfect fit with a fictional tale that captures our hearts, but movie reviews on Rotten Tomatoes can help.

Here are five modern fantasy movies that RT recommends.

1. “Toy Story 3” (2010)
This beloved film brings back the well-known Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy’s toys for another adventure. After Andy leaves for college, the toys find themselves donated to a daycare, where unfortunately the children don’t play nice. While planning their escape, the gang meets new toys and encounters various obstacles along the way. For its comedy, adventure, and honest emotion, Rotten Tomatoes gave it a rank of 99 percent, calling it a rare sequel that really worked.
