J.R.R. Tolkien creates the most fabulous fantasy universe possible (yes Game of Thrones fans, he is the original master!) and most people who are into Lord of the Rings are huge fans of the fantasy genre or they enjoy epic battle sequences. However, since Lord of the Rings was a movie series the fans haven’t had a longer period of pleasure unlike Game of Thrones fans who can enjoy the drawn out television series or Harry Potter fans who have quite a lot of movies to enjoy because Rowling wrote quite a few books to milk the cash cow.
Tolkien and Lord of the Rings fans thus might need to turn to other movies which remind them of their beloved Middle Earth, reruns of the same films do get boring after a while even for the most hardcore fans and thus here is a list of films similar to The Lord of the Rings that are our recommendations. If you are interested, you might be able to stream some of these movies like The Lord of the Rings on Netflix or Amazon Prime or even Hulu.
12. Legend (1985)
Directed by Ridley Scott, this film did not win much commercial success at first but later went on to become a cult classic. A tale that follows the fight against Darkness (yes literally the antagonist’s name) by a rag tag group of heroes. The unicorns horns serve as the object of desire in this fantasy film as the ring of power serves in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The battle of good and evil and the didactic tones of the story along with the elements of fantasy are sure to remind viewers of Tolkien’s masterpiece.
