My 50 Favorite Flicks • #29

Another comic book movies graces my list coming in at #29…

The Dark Knight (2008)
29
So we have heard it all, Heath Ledger’s performance, the Heat inspired theme, the realistic take Nolan gave.  This is all true, and yes overused.  This is just plain and simple a great movie.  It looks amazing visually, it represents the characters from the comics correctly, it doesn’t have to deal with any origin story.  This is a truly amazing sequel.  I could obviously nit-pick it, but overall the best Batman film for you time.
