The Dark Knight

I have to laugh at people who are so vile against the Schumacher movies on that point. BECAUSE THAT WAS THE POINT.

And yet on the cartoons the Riddler's not some spastic puzzle prankster...

I don't understand how anyone, ANYWHERE, could have thought that Dent was still alive.

I thought that the movie was QUITE clear in saying that "yo, he's dead. He ain't unconscious, he ain't gonna be locked away at Arkham, he's fucking DEAD yo".

The whole concept of Two Face still being alive was due to the fact that, yes, in a superhero movie, people can survive bigger falls than that. In fact, I see that as a cheap way of killing him off. They might as well made him have a heart attack. But sucks that Nolan isn't on for another one, that means that they will probably make another one with a shitty director and have stupid Jolie as cat woman and be a bastardization to the storyline.

I just don't want Catwoman in the third movie period

I have said it before and I'll say it again the only villain that the third movie will work with is The Riddler as a sort of detective-antithesis to Batman

especially since I think the most underrepresented thing in this film series is that Batman is a detective, not just a guy in a suit who beats up people

I heard Angelina Jolie was going to be Catwoman or something like that. I thought that was a great idea. I'd like to be in that one.

Ha ha ha NO!

I hope Nolan has better sense than that.

Hey you want creepy Riddler? Call in Marilyn Manson. I shall provide pictures later that it worked in the new 'The Batman' animated series.

Robert Englund of Freddie Kruger fame provided the voice for him too.

On the upside, TDK still has a chance at besting Titanic in box office draw.

How?

Rerelease. While there are no current plans to do so, the studio hasn't ruled out a yearly run of the movie in theaters as an "event" every year or so.

IMAX Filmed Entertainment chief Greg Foster tells The Hollywood Reporter that there is “a real possibility” of an IMAX rerelease in future years. Robert Zemeckis’ The Polar Express 3-D has been rereleased in IMAX theaters every holiday season, resulting in a four year total of $70 million. “Ultimately, it’s a decision that Warner Bros. has to make, Foster says, adding: “We’d certainly support that.”

That's how Star Wars took the #2 spot. It had fallen out of the top 5 (maybe even top 10, I can't remember) until the "special edition" releases in the mid 90s.

My biggest problem was the movie was the boat scene, I really wish they'd given both boats the detonators to their own explosives, then the citizen boat would be the only one to go down. None of this feel-goody toss the explosives out the window crap...

In any case, very good movie. Liked it more the more I watched it, and by the third time (My family's poor at coordinating going to movies >_<), it's going to be one of the few movies I own, next to Boondock Saints and Donnie Darko.

The Dark Knight is one of the best movies I've ever seen in the 2000 era. It was a great new movie amongst a bunch of terrible horror movies and whatnot.

I really liked it as well, especially given the amazing portayal of the Joker. Honestly, though, it certainly wasn't "one of the best" in my opinion, particularly because of the poor quality of the larger-scale action sequences. I look forward to when this "shaky cam" fad is done away with, since IMO it's seldom a legitimate convention and almost always just a crutch in shooting action. I will say, though, they didn't use it to quite as horrible an effect in this as they did in Transformers, and all-in-all the positives of this movie more than outweighed the negatives.

I agree. That is why I love 300, it went back to the stand-still/panning action sequences. I hate the Bourne trilogy because the "intense action" gives me "intense nausea".

Oh my god shaky cam was such a colossal fail. Once I noticed in the Bourne Ultimatum that the camera never stopped moving, it consumed my attention the entire movie. It wobbled slightly during even the dialogue. Not to mention they could have slipped in a massive orgy in the background of one of the intense action scenes and it would have went unnoticed, thanks to the camera man being drunk and masturbating while tripping on ecstasy.

I totally agree! It's funny, those are the exact examples I give whenever I go on my "action needs to be dynamic!" rant, haha.
