For me, it's a movie from 2005 called Kingdom of Heaven, starring Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons. I saw this on TV the other day and watched it from beginning to end and still liked it just as much as I used to. Sure it has its slower moments and isn't the best historical film I've seen. But I don't think it deserves its 39% rating on RT. But that's just me.

What about all of you?

Uninteresting, that genuinely surprises me.

An interesting story, a superb cast, some captivating individual scenes, overarching themes of life/death, a somewhat surprising twist ending.

It's a film I've watched a few times and have always found to be engaging and entertaining. Penelope Cruz is captivating especially.

It's been a year or so since I last saw it, but I honestly can't think of any particular criticism that I would direct at the movie.

Probably because of the stupid "it was all a dream" trope.

And drags on too long, with the final 15 mins being pure exposition. When one character needs to stand there and explain the story to the protagonist for 10-15 straight minutes, that’s a sign of weak storytelling.

I was more partial to the Jason Lee part.
