From a marketing standpoint, this may be the most important film in American history. Tim Burton's dark comicbook masterpiece is the blueprint for how all modern American blockbusters are marketed. I could go on for years about this film, breaking down every little nuanced moment, but for now let me just say that it's a perfect five stars. I don't even care about Joker killing Bruce's parents, Alfred showing Vicky Vale into the bat cave, or even Batman killing the Joker! All the great moments that no one seems to talk about completely outshine and surpass the three major flaws that everyone seems to always point out. Five stars. Period.
