Lol, dude, you ask some of the most.. Let's say, interesting questions.

I would say epic is greater in quality than awesome. I mean, if it's awesome, that's awesome. But if it's epic, it's usually more of a deal. For example, Koolaid is awesome. But :> is epic.

I see an immense difference...

There is a scale in fact (in MY mind) as to the level of pleasing, amazing or remarkable feats)...

-1 or lower: bad to worse to really bad/sucky to terrible/horrible to "ARGH!!!" to "Time to Panic"to Catastrophic to apocalyptic to "DAMN"...and beyond

0-1: Meh- less than okay, believe it or not. It doesn't really catch your attention at all, and is easily ignored or forgotten

2-4: Okay- unremarkable, but not totally unworth of attention (perhaps you only remember it for a short while, or remember it for a long time, but maybe forget the guy who did it)

5-7: Good/Pretty Good- yielding a pleasant result, and worthy of note; something significantly good is always appreciated

8: Great- yielding a more than just good result; it may even put a smile on your face, and/or is somewhat unlikely (like hearing a song you haven't heard in a long time that you REALLY like, or getting a "B" in a subject you're "okay" at)

9: Wonderful- something that kinda makes you happier than you thought you would feel; this is typically reserved for family events involving close family members (graduations, spending Christmas with the parents, marriage, divorce, etc.)

10: Awesome- something that makes you maybe smile wider or laugh harder than you normally would, and is really hard to believe and quite often makes you want to document it, see it again and/or perhaps show friends

And THEN we have...

11+: See normally, scales go only from 1 to 10, and maybe negative numbers if things are really bad, but if we go past 10, then we enter into epic territory; feats of an epic magnitude? Seeing an incredibly wonderful movie/hearing an incredibly wonderful song (lowest), making a really difficult shot in basketball, if you SUCK at basketball (higher), doing a nearly impossible daredevil stunt (high), being a celebrity/famous (Pret-ty high up there), having superwpowers or going on an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime journey (OH crap, that is EPIC!) and being divine (OH MY GOD, YOU'RE A GOD!!! this is like  the ∞ on the number scale, of course...nobody ever reaches divine, but it is often used jokingly to describe an act, instance or feat of awesomeness at an epic level)

Yeah, I kinda think of LOTR being epic while most superhero movies are awesome (Iron Man 1 & 2, the Spider-Man Trilogy, the X-Men Trilogy, etc. etc.)

 Indiana Jones is most certainly epic.

Well, it's certainly no Iliad or Odyssey...heck, it's not even of Star Wars proportions...
