The Dark Knight
Why So Serious?
Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as the Joker.
The mother of all comic book man superhero sequels finds Batman battling a baddie that not only terrorizes Gotham City in every way you could imagine but haunts your ass with his mesmerizing performance that in my opinion is one of the greatest performances in cinematic history. The mask in his hand. Bootleg Point Break moment. Backstab. Colonel Sharp? Hello school bus. The makeup on his face. The voice you never forget. I prefer Gary Oldman as a baddie but Gordon is the shit. Batman uses a gun? Bat groupies? When Batman talks he sounds like he needs to shit but can't. Sir Michael Caine is a legend. Where did Katie Holmes go? Harvey Dent's hair. Courtroom shenanigans. Who would…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I'll admit, I'm not gonna lie. I was REALLY scared to revisit this again. This really got me into film. It's not the film that started my love for film, but it's the first film that made me say "I wanna go into the film industry" so it's really close to me. I've seen this countless times but I noticed that for many people, it does'nt hold up well today so I was really scared to revisit it. Thankfully, I still love it as much as I did the first time I saw it years ago.
Christian Bale does another great job as Batman/Bruce Wayne. I also don't mind his voice here. It's a lot more gravaly and exaggerated than…
Introduce a little anarchy.
This film is just astounding, My all time Favourite.
* The incredible direction of Christopher Nolan.
* The masterful cinematography by Wally Pfister.
* Heath Ledger's iconic and memorable performance, not many have captivated the screen as well as Heath Ledger. Totally immersed into his character, completely compelling. Along with brilliant performances from Caine, Bale, Oldman, Eckhart and Freeman.
* The brilliant score by Hans Zimmer adds another layer of excellence to this masterpiece which helps create a scene to be so much more.
* The Greatest Batman film? Yes. The greatest comic book film? yes. The Greatest film of all time? ye- okay lets not push it.
Part Two of Preparing (As Much as Humanly Possible) For Interstellar
For me, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight has been hit or miss. Never seeing it in a theater, I caught the film on Blu-ray after all the hype was settled and the film sat near the top on the IMDb 250. Now, that was back before I figured out that the IMDb list was complete garbage and that any recent film can be one of the finest films of all time if it's given enough hyperbolic praise. Watching it for the first time, all I saw was an incredible performance by Heath Ledger, awe-inspiring IMAX sequences, and a bunch of build-up leading up to one of the most disappointing…

So you all will know the seriousness of my warning, I shall say this in English. As a letterboxd user, I encourage you from time to time and always in a respectful manner, to question my reviews. If you're unconvinced that a particular film I had praised is actually good, tell me so, but allow me to convince you and I promise you right here and now, no film will ever be taboo.
Except, of course, the subject that's under discussion now. The price you pay, for insulting The Dark Knight.. I collect your fucking head. Just like this fucker here! NOW. IF ANY OF YOU SONS OF BITCHES GOT ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY, NOW'S THE FUCKING TIME!!
incomparable // this movie is amazing
Clearly one of the best films of all time.
Loved Heath Ledger as the Joker in this one. One of my favorite interpretations of the character.
Christopher Nolan has done it again!
This movie was a great success and easliy deserved it.
The performance by Heath Ledger is truly amazing.
One of the best comicbook-movies of all time.
Three stars for Heath Ledger's Joker and only Heath Ledger's Joker. He's always fresh and alarming, growing in stature on each viewing, while that other jerk in the rubber suit (the one who's always gargling) only looks sillier and sillier each time out. It's hard not to root for the Joker to wipe him out.
The rest of the film is bloated solemn self-righteous nonsense, screeching to a halt every now and then for Michael Caine to deliver a lecture about What Batman Means.
My favourite one in the Nolan trilogy.
Melhor filme de super-heroi até o momento. Pena o Nolan ter estragado o último filme.
Watch it for heath ledger
Great movie, very popcorny. Also, the Free-TV version had been badly cut, removing much oft the bloody scenes, on the scope of making some changes narratively nonsensical.
