I couldn't live with myself if I voted for anything but Serenity.

Second place, Lady Vengeance.

I would have voted Serenity because of its amazing awesome possum-ness, but I threw it to Kingdom of Heaven (the Director's Cut.) That film is just so absolutely amazing and I wish more people would see it.

Sin City wins this, but V For Vendetta, Serenity and Revenge Of The Sith Come close, as do Tsotsi, The Proposition and Italianetz. If I could give an honorary award for the movie that made me break my TV remote because it was so mind numbingly awful, that would go to Batman Begins.
