not to forget
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133093/ rdfs:label "Matrix, The".


So I want to add something here:
A useful URI is a URI that can be found in 10 secs by 

 a USER

think of this for a minute.
therefore I would recommend to also use above URI.

as to owl:sameAs I would say that there is no central authority there
but some popular uris will evolve. 
Like wordnet or wikipedia has proven as popular thing to identify terms
in semantic web, so people can say their terms are owl:sameAs some
popular url.
