Most Epic Movie Series Of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Lord of the Rings Series

Lord of the Rings is definitely the most epic movie series of all time. Harry Potter is good, but not an epic. The series is focused on little adventures until the the big climax with Lord Voldemort. In fact, a lot of the stories is about them learning magic, Voldemort is not really considered a big threat until mid-way through the series. I believe an Epic a series focused on one threat, with maybe a couple story lines. One big adventure, the whole thing took place in about a year, with the main heroes suffering through many hardships throughout the whole thing. All to save Middle Earth, and its people.

The beautiful thing about the Lord of the Rings is its music. This series touched my heart. Peter Jackson left humanity with the most exciting, epic, and touching movie series of our time. I absolutely love it, and always will! - jprg12

Enjoy LOTR, because the reality is, we may never again see a movie of this magnitude in our lifetime. Directors work on a great movie for 2 years. Peter Jackson has worked on the LOTR series for 15. There are certainly other good films, but none with the magnitude and complexity of this one. Not by a longshot.

LOTR is the definition of the word epic.

2 Harry Potter Series

Easily the best book to movie adaptation ever. Most successful book series ever and second most successful movie series ever. And all of the books are masterpieces and so are most of the movies. Third, last and fifth movies should have got at least one OSCAR. How this series cannot be described as the greatest is beyond me.

Harry Potter definitely deserves to be first. Harry Potter takes you from the beginning to a boys life, where he learns and becomes curious about the world of magic to the point where he can use magic on his own. Harry Potter shows shows us how even bad things become good, and how we just have to believe

Harry Potter really does deserve first place. The story, characters, settings, scenes, etc. made all of us watch till the end. Though Voldemort's movie death was not that close to his book death, everybody still loved the movies

Harry Potter clasifies as epic by definition. Its just unbeliveably great, and are a personal treasure to me owning the films. (I probably value them more than the rest of the stuff I have owned to date lol). But if you want to talk a bout the most epic film of all time the fight should be between star wars vs tlotr. That two Are the alpha and the omega in the extension of the "epic" word meaning and escence. I really can't tell which is more epic but I like The Lord of the Rings a bit more. Cause the fact that it feels as a one 9 hours film that you feel you're emotionally someone different at the end of it all. Like for reals.

3 Star Wars Series

This is what you call epic. It was made in 1977, and it was more intense. Star Wars gives you that feeling when you are on the edge of your feet.

Star Wars wasnt based on a book. This is straight up movie skillZ

An amazing sci-fi that started sci-fi

How can you not love Star Wars

4 The Dark Knight Series

Truly epic with a completely new and interesting take on superhero movies.

Has to be one of the best Film Series from the last 10 years.

Dark knight is hands down the best movie. Best movie series.

Amazing movies and should be at number 2 really(Harry Potter will always be first though).

5 Pirates of the Carribean Series

Though the second and third were not so great, it had an epic storyline, and there's not so many pirate movies out there

Captain Jack Sparrow is the best character ever made! - LaurenLauren

Amazing movies and I love all of them. No idea how Star Wars is above this when you have junk like Attack of the Clones and Phantom Menace in the lineup

This should be on Number 2 after the Harry Potter series.

6 James Bond Series

I think James Bond should be in the top 3. I've seen every single one of the movies and they were all great, especially Casino Royale.

Bond is one of the most influential spies on the big screen he deserves this spot

Great movies and Skyfall is so the best Bond ever

Far better than Star Wars

7 Bourne Series

An action-packed epic spy series

How the Hunger Games is above this is beyond me

8 X-men Series

Great series apart from the third and first Wolverine movie. The rest are great. Especially Days of Future Past

Keeps you on edge love the series.

9 Marvel Cinematic Universe

Good but The Avengers is so gigantically overrated because it has Amman awful story

This series includes amazing movies as The Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

DC is way better than this considering that they have THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY

Best because its continuity is real. Every film connects to the next film and newer films fill in gaps of older films. Its all one gigantic T.V. show that when viewed as a whole is a masterpiece and I love it!

The Contenders

11 Batman Series

Perhaps the greatest superhero of all time

I think that when he fights joker is the best... I would disagree with you because the action in Harry Potter is amazing.

I think that this series should be number 2 on the list the movies are awesome and the books are even better

Awesome and epicly well made being action and mild gore all around

I think the Hunger Games seiries ahould be either be the second or third best on this list I am not happy of where it is at on the list becuase I am big fan of this seiries and I have already seen the first and second movie

16 Godfather Series V 2 Comments
17 The Fast and the Furious Series

The best of all how come this one isn't on top RIP Paul Walker

Not the best but ya is very good especially after dwyane "the rock" johnson joined the team

Ooo come on, people is really stupid, all people is stupid, this franchise is one of the worst of all time, only the first one is decent at least, then all the movies are the same

18 Rocky Series

Okay, This movie series should be a lot closer to the top. Without this, where else would be the really good action movies we have today? Exactly! Rocky is classic sports action at it's best.

19 Alien Series
20 The Mummy Series

The movies are great, not excellent, but great, and it does have a rather epic storyline
