The Dark Knight (2008)

All Time Favorites — Written by Depraedata on 01.07.2018

This movie is still one of my all-time favourites. I went to see it at the cinema when I was 14, after convincing my mom that she should let me see it (it was rated 16 in the Netherlands). Never regretted it, although she did. I remember just feeling in awe of this superhero movie. My love for these types of movies hasn't died, no matter the company, the hero or the genre. When a movie is this good, who cares where the source material comes from? DC might have had some missers recently (Wonder Woman excluded) but this is still one of the all-time greats.

This, I think, is in great part due to its villain. No villain in the genre has come close to matching Heath Ledger's eerie vibe as The Joker. I adore Marvel, and may be biased towards them, but I will admit that they have had some faults with their villains, with the exception of quite a few from their TV shows and Thanos, more recently. Heath Ledger will go down in history. So will Christopher Nolan.

There are some movies you wish you could see again for the first time. This is definitely one of them.
