Epic fantasy is not the most popular movie genre, because despite the popularity of movies like "Lord of the Rings", the big studios are not that keen on producing such movies, because they cost a lot of money and target a very specific demographic.

However, there are still millions of people who consider themselves fans of the genre, and they are pretty tired of watching Peter Jackson's trilogy over and over again.

That said, it's not like there aren't any good epic fantasy movies out there. Yes, there have been no good films in the genre in the last five years or so, but if you look a little deeper, you'll find a whole bunch of great projects that have been forgotten about for one reason or another.

Here are 10 underrated epic fantasy films from the '90s:

First of all, don't expect to see the quality of "Lord of the Rings" in any of the movies mentioned above. While we think these forgotten 90's fantasy epics deserve recognition, they're just not on the same level as Jackson's iconic trilogy - they just didn't have the budget.

However, that shouldn't stop you from watching the films on this list - each and every one of them offers a unique perspective on the fantasy genre, and despite their limitations, they still manage to enchant viewers with epic storytelling and believable fantasy elements.
