1. I give KoH 4.5 stars out of 5!!! It was awesome...
I thought Gladiator was boring and Troy was simply stupefying. But I have been sponging up every bit information I can find on the Crusades ever since I saw the movie. And I do admit that I originally saw it because Orlando Bloom is hot!!! I thought that the best character development was of Saladin and Balian. Other than that it was, perhaps, a bit flat. Does your copy have the hour long History Channel documentary, etc. on it? If it does, watch those. In the extras, such as that, the makers of the film admit where they see the film as lacking and what was changed from history. It was quite interesting.

By the way, Angelina Jolie played Colin Farrell's mother in "Alexander", not "Troy." Troy was the one with Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. So I guess you could say that you got the wrong have of Brangelina!

Have you seen the interviews with the actor who played Saladin? I can find them for you, if you'd like. He did an amazing job of explaining how the Muslims were portrayed and why he took the role.

You mentioned that you liked the ancient past...do you have any recommendations on other movies or books? I just read "Warriors of God" about Saladin and Richard the Lionheart. I was amazed at how true to form the movie stayed.

Sorry to talk so long! I love this movie and you really got me going!
