What is the name of this 90’s or 00’s fantasy movie?


It’s a fantasy movie that I remember watching when I was young. I remember a really tall tower in a sky full of dark clouds. I think it was about time. I know there was a room with a checkerboard floor. Also I remember the villain being pretty creepy as a kid. Please lmk

Any more details about the story?

I guess we could rule out Labyrinth (1986) and Mirrormask (2005).


Not sure about the checkered floor but reminds me of Krull (1983).

Any other details that you can recall? About what year would this have been? The description of the creepy villain, and any other details about the plot? Was the tower actually floating in the sky, or was it so tall that it reached the clouds?

Other than the previous responses, who already had excellent guesses, I’ll add a couple more to help jog your memory:

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120737/?ref_=ext_shr_lnk
2. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167261/?ref_=ext_shr_lnk

^ Though I don’t right off recall there being a checkerboard floor in the towers. I can’t remember if there any other inside viewing angles from The Return of The King movie.
