Movie Micah’s review published on Letterboxd:
Is there something wrong with me? Am I watching the right movie? What could possibly be the reason that this is the best superhero movie? I don’t get it. I’m still incredibly mixed on this film.
Neither of the villains get fully developed to me and it doesn’t leave me satisfied with anyone’s arcs by the end.
Now I really like the thrill of the watch during the viewing but when it’s over and I start thinking about it, it kinda becomes a plain good movie, nothing really special, and I forget a lot of it.
It feels weird calling Nolan my favorite director when his most beloved movie is one of the only films I definitely call overrated. The Dark Knight continues to frustrate me even if it is a decently well made movie, I don’t think it’s a good Batman film and it will certainly never be one of my all time favorites.
