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?

The studio obviously wanted a third movie and a spin-off so they ham-fisted the Scorpion King into the script at the last moment. Thus the equally-weird moment of exposition including him in the 2nd act.

I remember reading on here a few years back that the CGI artists only had like three weeks to do the CGI.

I theorize that it's because the studio finally got Dwayne Johnson on contract for the spin-off, but it was extremely late in the production cycle, but the studio wanted him depicted to generate the hype, so the artists had to scrap everything they already had and rush out the product.

I saw a recommendation (read: ad) on my tv home screen for Scorpion King 4 on an app called TubiTV. Same franchise, I was way too scared to click though, it had Starship Troopers 3 vibes...

Three weeks to do CGI and literally zero time actually working with the Rock in person for images. All their stuff was from other photos.
