The One Ring makes an appearance in 3 (soon to be 4, with any luck) of the most significant fantasy movies of all time.

The Holy Grail Report Abuse
10 points - added 9 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
The Holy Grail is a great MacGuffin because it's used in more than one film franchise. This is one of the most compelling historical artifacts; it just asks to be used as a MacGuffin.

The Sorceror's Stone (Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone) Report Abuse
6 points - added 9 years ago by JDBLists - 1 comment
Comments:
The great part of the Sorceror's Stone is its absolute uselessness. The entire movie is based on its acquisition, and at the end of the picture, it just gets shuttled away for destruction.

It's great when the MacGuffin is secretly nothing. Sorry for the spoilers.
