Ive been looking for the titles of these films, bare with me my memory is a little foggy, most of these films are from the late 70s-80s, Thanks!

MOVIE 1: this boy and girl are in a field or sumthin and it gets dark, blah, blah, blah, then the next part I remeber is this evil mirror breaks and the boy gets a shard of glass in his eye and he turns evil or something.....I also remeber the main badguy was this evil looking knight kinda guy, Im also pretty sure it was an older anime style....

MOVIE 2: I think its about these unicorns and these people are after them.....Theres a old skeleton who just chills and wont tell anything he knows unless you give him booze or some kinda drink....

MOVIE 3: Theres these Giant Ogres that like to eat Children, thats all i can remeber.

MOVIE 4: This is the one I want to find out the most cause I loved it when I was younger and NOBODY can tell me what it is!!!! Anyway, this boy lives in this village.....his father gives him a sword.....Theres this evil wizard who comes around and rounds up everyone in the village except the boy, he was away or something....the wizard turns all the village people into these blocky looking stone slaves....the boy goes off to save his people and kill the wizard and meets a girl along the way?(could be wrong on that).......They defeat the wizard and turn him into a wooden puppet.....the puppet wizard guy is in a bubble and is sent underwater.....the end

MOVIE 5: its like a huckleberry finn animated movie but it has nothing really to do with the book, he runs into all these weird monsters and badguys, one of them was this skeleton guy in an orange suit and cape..

MOVIE 1:  The only thing I could find (and it sounds a little familiar to me as well) was some eps. of Sailor Moon.  You ever watch it?  Anyway, eps. 169-172 seem to be about what you're talking about.  Sorry I couldn't find any pics to help out.

MOVIE 2: Is definitely The Last Unicorn.  The skeleton is actually just askull and can reveal the way to the other unicorns, but refuses to until he's given rum.  The wizard pretends to turn water to rum and gives it to the skeleton, saying that the skull can't really taste it anyway.

MOVIE 3:  Sorry, no idea.  :(

MOVIE 4:  Are you sure it's a boy?  Cause the rest of it sounds like Unico on the Island of Magic.  Check out what I wrote here.

MOVIE 5:  Orange suit and cape?  Sorry, don't know that one either.  :(

Thanks for the info!!!!

Im pretty sure that Movie 4 is not unico, Theres a scene thats coming back to me where the boy is in a tower or very open room and all the blocky stone slaves are in the tower after him (The stone people look very squarish) Im almost positive its only this boy and a girl, Im surprised I remember this much cause the last time I saw it was about 1987, the animation was definetly from the late 70s or early 80s cause it had that grainy look to it, it might have even been japanese in origin.

Oh oh!  Idea for MOVIE 3!  Could it be the BFG?  One of the giants in the cartoon reaches into a small orphanage with his really, really long fingernail and eats one of the kids.

YES for movie 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its called BFG?

(stupid of me, sorry for that)  It's called the Big Friendly Giant - BFG.  It's a book by Roald Dahl that they made into a movie in, I think, 1996.  I hope this is it.

No its definetly not then, movie 3 is from the late 80s-early 90s(I believe I saw it around 91-92 at my grandmas), It was animated in the same style that The Hobbit is. I remember one of the giants wore nothing but a animal skin loin cloth and he had a huge nose and was really fat, for some reason I wanna say he had  these black stripes on his body (not actually stripes, they looked more like scars, kinda like Zangeif from Street Fighter 2) I believe there were 3 giants that were released by a witch or something and these kids need to stop them(could be wrong, but im pretty sure thats what happened).

I just want to thank you guys for identifying movie 4.  I have had this image of these blocky stone slave things stuck in my head for over a decade.  It used to scare me when I was younger and I could not identify the movie where this came from.
