MBTI®: 5 Fantasy Movies That ENTJs Will Love (& 5 They Will Hate)
ENTJs are often initiators, ice-breakers, and leaders, so naturally, there are only certain fantasy movies this MBTI® personality type will enjoy.

Remember in The Big Bang Theory when Sheldon asks Penny if she’s a ‘big ole five’? An ENTJ is a ‘Big Ole Five’ — the initiator, the ice-breaker, the leader, basically the one who gets things going. It’s one of the 16 personality types in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and basically refers to people with extraverted, intuitive, thinking, and judging characteristics.

They are commanders who thrive when it comes to team-building, strategizing, and pursuing a focused goal. As a result, ENTJs enjoy movies that feature interesting leadership figures and ambitious expeditions, which may seem impossible. Here are the kinds of fantasy movies ENTJs would love and hate:
10 Love: The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
The first film of The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the most memorable quest films of all time. Frodo’s journey to Mount Doom is as iconic as it gets, and there’s nothing ENTJs love more than a good old fashioned adventure fantasy film that follows a quest.
LOTR lets ENTJs live out their fantasies of being the ultimate pack leader and lets them invest in the experience, especially with the heavily woven background details. The Peter Jackson film resonates with some of their key characteristic traits.
9 Hate: Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
The beloved musical fantasy film may not be a hit with the commander ENTJ types for several reasons. Though ENTJs are intuitive thinkers, they appreciate storylines that are chronologically sound and well-timed. Critics have largely agreed that the 2005 version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a bit too cluttered and lacked the sense of purpose, especially compared to its predecessor.
ENTJs would get exasperated with some of the long-winded sequences in the Tim Burton film, especially if they never connected with the film’s premise.
8 Love: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe
The Chronicles of Narnia strings together several elements that ENTJs look for in a movie. There is a terrific sense of mystical adventure, the script is unpredictable (as are the character progressions), and each of the expeditions made by the Pevensie children is more dangerous than the last.
There’s a sense of rising danger, strategically planned. And most importantly, the story-telling is exceptionally neat, especially when compared to most quest-themed movies, which tend to get a little carried away if they are literary adaptations.
7 Hate: Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl
ENTJs would find the character of Captain Jack Sparrow to be very frustrating because despite possessing natural leadership qualities, he rarely wants to act upon them.
And though this helps etch out his role as the relatable goof-up who’s just trying to make a not-so-honest living, most of his heists or expeditions in The Curse of the Black Pearl lack logic and clarity of thought. ENTJs love ambitious quests and rescue acts, but most of Sparrow’s plans are simply too incredulous and would immediately make the ENTJs question Sparrow’s leadership and planning skills.
6 Love: Black Panther
ENTJs would immediately respond to King T’Challa’s cool and collected demeanor, who believes in succeeding with others and can rally his people around. Black Panther’s storyline was also conceived to be remarkably poignant and complex, one that puts T’Challa through acute challenges and gives him the room to exercise his determination, willpower, and courage.

Moreover, Wakandians, as a people, are ahead of their time, ruled by science and knowledge, and also possess excellent strategic planning skills, which is something that appeals to any commander personality.
5 Hate: Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
Harry Potter is a total Jon Snow when it comes to accepting the mantle of the commander. It’s no secret that Harry is famous, owing to parentage and his infamous tryst with the Dark Lord.
So Harry’s constant befuddlement at being the center of attention has always confused ENTJ Potterheads. His refusal to believe that he is worthy or to accept his role as a commander or the decision-maker in the chain of events is something that doesn’t speak to ENTJs who are usually quick to assume the steering wheel whenever needed.
4 Love: Alice In Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland is a terrifically nuanced film that has something for everyone, but at its very core, it’s a movie about belonging. It also has a very clearly etched out focus on bringing like-minded people together and a very interesting and purposeful team-building story.

ENTJs would love the urgency associated with the one-time Frabjous Day combat and also how deftly the two Queens were positioned in the narrative giving the script its moral edge. This also helps ENTJs to root for a single side, thus engaging their relentless competitive sides.
3 Hate: Godzilla: King of the Monsters
This Kaiju tale could end up confusing the ENTJs especially because there are so many leadership perspectives in play. Natural-born commanders usually seek the alpha out first in a film or a show to test out waters and see if it’s a character they can identify with.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters has quite a few ‘commanders’ at play because the movie refuses to pick a side, giving a voice to the Titans as well as the humans who are not on their side. Though ENTJs could enjoy the visual spectacle of the film, they will miss the shared sense of purpose and drive, which so often binds a team together.
2 Love: Zombieland
Zombieland is the story about a group of misfits, who despite several odds, band together and survive a full-blown zombie apocalypse. There’s a sense of very real, imminent danger and adventure, which engages several facets of the commander personality.
There’s also a very acute sense of accomplishment each time the group fights off danger or manages to escape a horde of zombies or even stumbles upon Bill Murray’s mansion. The film also features terrific strategizing and really interesting moments of camaraderie that will resonate with any ENTJ.
1 Hate: Twilight
Twilight is the film where good decisions and clear reasoning go to die, and ENTJs wouldn’t enjoy that one bit. This is not to say that ENTJs do not appreciate teenage romances or vampire flicks, it’s just that the first Twilight movie will fail to keep an ENTJ hooked because it lacks perspective. It doesn’t establish the Cullen family as great alphas.
Although they are literally a coven of vampires who can take over an entire town, it’s quite clumsily narrated, and there is no real camaraderie between the Cullens. As a family or a unit, they are just not convincing enough. Not to mention there are so many glaring errors that the intuitive ENTJ would immediately notice.
