Top 10 Best Epic Movies of All TimeAn EPIC is a genre of film that emphasizes human drama on a grand scale. Epics are on a much larger scale throughout their entire production including numerous extras. The films are usually the most expensive films of the year due to an all star cast, a grand, sweeping musical score, and the thousands of costumes, sets, and crew members. This list is of the films with very little or no computer generated special effects, making them "true" epics.
Protect from the Sun and vast spaces in Arab regions. The wind and humidity are some of the features of the desert atmosphere. Sand, dunes and even cactus are also present. It is there and some know not why or how. A mystery that might boggle the imagination for good or not. In this opinion these make one epic of a film.
How much more epic can you get than hundreds and hundreds of men riding through the Arabian Desert on camels, a full scale train wreck, and sweeping shots of Peter O'Toole with the entire desert behind him?
What in the **** are comic books doing on this list. this movie should be number 1
So epic it makes Ben Hur look like Bridesmaids.
Best movie ever made.
Best film ever! Duh
3rd best movie ever
Kurosawa. 'enough said.
Truly epic, soaring, with great performances and jaw-dropping action sequences.
The epic of epics, period.
Hands down champion!
The length. The numerous scenes. The ridiculous number of actors and animals. The vivid color. Brynner vs Heston. Anne Baxter and Yyvonne De Carlo in their primes. And it's been shown every Easter weekend for who knows how long.
Coming after Quo Vadis (1951), DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1956)
remains the biblical epic film by which all others are judged. It was impressive
in every respect, from scope & spectacle to special effects & sheer grandeur.
Incredible color, film score, animation, and story-telling. Yul Brynner was great!
Every penny of its $13,500,000 budget may be seen on the silver screen. It
was DeMille's masterpiece & it's as remarkable a watch today as it was in 1951!
And it's the sixth most successful motion picture of all time. It may truly be said that: "They don't make them like they used to! "
Dr. H. James Birx
One of Stanley Kubrick's most unappreciated films. Kirk Douglas is awesome in it. The characters of Spartacus and Antoninus are amazing, the script by Dalton Trumbo is extremely clever:
"I'M SPARTACUS - NO, I'M SPARTACUS! "
"A slave awaits death as if it were their way to be free"
"I love you like the son I'll never see"
Damn. it's increidble.
Hell yeah! All the way! This is one of my favorite films ever. Long live the oldies (but goodies)!
