I want people to tell their favorite "epic" movies.
Here's my top (no particular order):

Spartacus
Ben-Hur
Braveheart
Gladiator
Lord of the Rings

My bottom (again, no particular order):

King Arthur
Alexander
Troy
Kingdom of Heaven

King Arthur?  You mean with Clive Owen?  I didn't see that one but I felt it wasn't worth the time.  But, then again, I saw Troy.  Was disappointed by that.  Kingdom of Heaven was grossly underrated.  I thought that was very well done!  Too bad people are getting sick of these kind of movies.  They won't give a movie like that some credit!  Alexander, the first time I saw it on the screen I was a little bored by it.  But I decided to purchase it anyway and you know, watching it again, it really isn't as bad as I thought.  It just took a few more times to digest everything before I found myself to enjoy it.  I'd also like to add Seven Samurai and Hero to the list of epics.

I loved Alexander. I saw about 20 minutes of Troy and it was okay.

Troy had so much going for it, but I didn't agree with the way they went with it.  Brad Pitt was seriously miscast in that movie.

no particular order, just in thought, the quick 15 min list.

Mary Poppins
The Ten Commandments
Ben Hur
The Greatest Story Ever Told
The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
The Wizard of Oz
Independence Day
Aliens
Terminator
Terminator 2

Finally, the greatest epic I have seen in many years, and we got three of them.
Lord of the Rings 1,2, and 3.
Did I even need to include? :D

I think you are seriously misinterpreting the meaning of the term 'epic' with some of those selections.
