The Dark Knight (2008)
Why so serious?
So basically: Gotham is terrorized by The Joker, a man who loved to cause chaos. Batman is struggling with his role as the vigilante in Gotham and handing over the saving to the new D.A., Harvey Dent, Gotham’s white knight.
Let me tell you how unbiased this review is going to be. I saw it THREE times in theatres, loving each time and thinking, whole-heartedly, that it would surpass Titanic at the box-office (I am SO angry that it was Avatar that finally got there, by the way). So when I say this is a terrible movie, you’re going to agree with me. And it’s only got all the hype because of The Joker and, by extension, Heath Ledger’s amazing acting. I noticed, probably on the third or fourth viewing, that any scene without him in it was just boring. Like, so boring! It hurt. It’s much too long, also. Which I think is the biggest downfall of the film. They tried to shove way too much into it. Especially stuffing Two Face in at the end. That was just unnecessary! He deserves his own film. And what’s with The Joker being all “I don’t plan things, I just go with the chaos,” yet all of his schemes seem very well thought out. Wut?! Yup, so, dull film that is way too long and has too much plot shoved into it. Lastly, I did not know Batman was dying of lung cancer, but that's certainly how he sounds.
Homg! No, not at all deserving of the list.
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
