Most Epic Movie Series of All Time

The Top Ten

Lord of the Rings Series

I agree on this 100% lord of the rings series is very epic with a good story and epic battles - Dvafan2

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.

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

Easily the best. The books are completely out of this world and the movies are amazing. Genius is the only word I can use to describe this series

Star Wars Series

Are you nuts? Harry Potter more epic than Star Wars? I LOVE Harry Potter but if you talk about epic the Webster's dictionary even has a paragraph where it says "Star Wars saga"

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

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.

I was suprised this wasn't #1 - westofohio

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).


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

The second and third Pirates of the Carribean movies weren't good either. Plus, the original Star Wars trilogy and Revenge of the Sith are far better than all of the Pirates of the Carribean movies. Heck, even the new Star Wars sequel trilogy is better. - RogerMcBaloney

Jack sparrow is the best character

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

The only series that's shaken not stirred.

Back to the Future Series

Yet again, this series never ceases to amaze me. - dureckl

All day long...the most epic thing ever. - dureckl

Great classic

Good, but not epic.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

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

Best Series of all time

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

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!

Spiderman Series

Heavily influential superhero films

All 3 were great

You forgot the third and Toby Maguire is awful as Spider-Man. THE CHEESYNESS IS TO BAD

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.

The Contenders

Indiana Jones Series

Best Archeological movies of all time

Bourne Series

An action-packed epic spy series

Matt damon is best actor

How the Hunger Games is above this is beyond me

Mark is the best for me

The Fast and the Furious Series

This is my favorite movie series
I'm biggest fan of Vin diesel & Paul walker after this film series

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

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

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

Godfather Series

Imdb top 250 speaks for itself.

15?! You gotta be Kidding Me

Ocean's Trilogy
Godzilla Series
Jurassic Park Series

The opener is the greatest movie ever and the sequels are entertaining too but the last one tends to disappoint a lil

The Hobbit Series

I count these and LOTR as one franchise so these should be around 3rd

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 love batman. He's movies are way more epic than Harry potter and lord of the rings. I canot stand Harry potter.lord of the rings is ok but batman has more epic movies. I love it when he fights bane in tdkr

Terminator Series
The Hunger Games Series

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

Chronicals of Narnia

They need to make the 4rth one already. I have been waiting patiently but it's been a while.

Percy Jackson Series
Alien Series
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.

The Matrix Series
The Mummy Series

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

Transformer Series

This should be in the top ten not at number 17 the first three movies are epic. Haven't seen 4th one yet

On of the greats series just wish there were more movies

Dirty Harry Series
Predator Series

These movies are based on a super alien hunting humans how can you get better than that (pardoning lord of the rings and marvels series)

Part 1 is so good

Kill Bill Series


Barely even qualifies for considerate with only 2 films (and hopefully no more) - Billyv


Mission Impossible Series

1 was great. 2 derailed the franchise. Movies 3-5 are brilliant. Thank you JJ Abrams for the reboot.

The movie is great ever seen movie like this it is most competible

Saw Series

thumbs up

Superman Series

Definitely one of the best superhero series

Shrek Series

In love with this series

Final Destination Series
Sherlock Holmes Series
Planet of the Apes Series
Mad Max


Maze Runner

Superb's the only movie series that I watched within one night.damn

Iron Man Series

These are the best superhero movies that marvel has ever made after Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy. Iron Man should be at number 2 or 3

Star Trek Series
Paranormal Activity Series
Bad Boys Series
Twilight Series

You just had to sneak this series on this list, didn't you, GreenViolet8235?! Ya f'in hypocritical bigot. >:(
