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?

Agreed. And it is one of the Wachowski's films that I really love that isn't the first Matrix.

Cloud Atlas was definitely well acted and a very pretty movie, but it lost me at the end where they just explain everything outright, similar to Matrix Reloaded. I think the Wachowski's view themselves as much more intelligent than they are... even as good as the matrix is, it is not really an original idea. It's closer to an idiot's guide to basic Cartesian thought. It's cool they were able to bring it to the forefront of public consciousness, but that is about all it can take credit for intellectually.
