in its clever, earnest humor, The Terminal captures the highest highs and lowest lows of love so much better than the emotional grandstanding of Atonement. Spielberg FTW.

I love them both but the romantic in me picks Atonement.

No no no no. Not that difficult at all. The Terminal is pretty nice, I enjoyed it. But Atonement is of a whole other level, what a beautiful movie!

Catherine Zeta Jones > Keira Knightley.

I'm with RoelBogers 100%. To even insinuate that The Terminal is slightly better than Atonement (let alone much better) is completely ridiculous. The Terminal is pleasant and I enjoyed it, but- Atonement? It goes beyond simplistic pleasantries and achieves greatness.

I hated Atonement. As much as I agree with both piett and nc, what ultimately harasses my the most about the film is the vile set of characters in it. I wanted to punch them all in the dick for being so boring a dicky.

Terminal is a just okay movie to me, it loses most matchups in my eyes
