Default The Dark Knight



Okay, so i would never start a thread on any anticipated movie but this one is just so f***ing awesome i could not resist.

8 critics have seen the movie and they all have been positive with a "masterpiece" mantra attached to them.

People are compaing this to a "better" (if that is possible) Godfather part ii

Think it will be the best super hero movie?

I always preferred the earlier, darker films. If they had the right people giving a shit this could quite possibly be the best to date.

And I'm the guy that always is cynical about hyped movies.

Currently, Batman Begins holds this for me, so Dark Knight could take it.

word. the tim burton batman movies are the best but batman begins was pretty dark too and christopher nolan is a great director so i think that one could be very good.

i think you guys are wrong with the "tim burton movies were the best" comments. no they were not.

older does not equal better.

the burton/shulmacher(sp?) movies were a disgrace to the franchise. 2 of them were passable, not batman begins quality.

In general I really like the stuff Tim Burton is involved in and I hate anything with Jim Carrey ... but I actually think Batman Forever is the best one. There you go .. flame away
Probably a girl thing.

Now riddle me this, riddle me that .. who's afraid of the big bad Val Kilmer - uh I mean bat.

The Burton movies were too stylised I think and had an anarchic quality that you just don't get in the comic books. Gotham is dirty and gritty for sure but Burton fills it with mad circus performers and lunatics whereas it should be more like 7even - bleak and unforgiving.

Batman Begins was awesome and the Dark Knight is probably going to wipe the floor with them all.

And by the way, the best Superhero / comic book film of all time is Superman, without question. The buzz surrounding that film when it was released was just incredible. Along with Jaws and Star Wars it completely reinvented the cinema of the late 70s, something that you never get anymore.

(Goes all misty-eyed with nostalgia and nips out for a bag of Werthers Original butterscotch)
