Looking back and reflecting on Hollywood flops has become one of the internet's favorite pastimes. If Tinseltown bigwigs can fail while having all the money in the world and talent to spare, the rest of us can put our failures into stark perspective. If one genre has seen its fair share of blockbuster failures over the years, it is the fantasy film.

So, go ahead and vote up the underrated fantasy films audiences missed the first time around.
