The Dark Knight (Two-Disc Special Edition + Digital Copy) (2008)

But calling it the best superhero movie ever seems like faint praise, since part of what makes the movie great–in addition to pitch-perfect casting, outstanding writing, and a compelling vision–is that it bypasses the normal fantasy element of the superhero genre and makes it all terrifyingly real.

    Why so serious?
    I thought everyone did a magnificient acting job in this.

    “Dark Knight” is a superb comic book film, but elevated to greatness by the Ledger tragedy
    How can you review Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” without starting with Heath Ledger? Not only does Ledger, as the Joker, give one of the best performances ever in a…

    One great performance does not make a great movie
