    I was talking to a guy the other day who told me the Dark Knight movie is one the greatest movies of all time.

    I googled some top 100 lists and a few have it in the top 10.

    Never seen it. Is the movie that great?

    Are you kidding me?? You've never seen it? Where have you been?

    Yes, I've seen it several times. One of the best movies ever and I've seen plenty. I'm a movie addict.

    Heath Ledger's performance was epic. Christian Bale is Christian Bale. He was great. Dark Knight rises was pretty damn good too! Watch both. You won't be disappointed even with the high expectations going in.

    I don't watch the superhero movies. Never seen any of them. Just don't interest me.

    You have to watch all 3.

    Cant just begin with The Dark Knight.


    Batman Begins
    The Dark Knight
    The Dark Knight Rises


    The last one was best in my opinion

    I buy my own drinks and I probably know movies a lot better than you. It was indeed a superhero movie but it was an excellent one. Heath Ledger's performance alone made it fantastic. Christian Bale was great as always.

    I wouldn't have a drink with you either so don't flatter yourself kid.

    The movie was great. Yes. Watch it yourself and see. Then come back to this thread.

    I agree. I was going to mention that. Batman Begins was my least favorite out of the 3. Was kind of dull but definitely he should watch them in order.

    I can see that. As I said Dark Knight rises was excellent as well. It's close for me. Pretty hard to follow up Dark Knight but the sequel did.

    To the OP, most superhero movies you watch, and it's a lot of action and even if it's good it doesn't really stick with you. Both Dark Knights will stick with you. You will remember them as great movies. It's not just great compared to actions movies but fantastic overall.

    Speaking of great movies, decided to stay home tonight and take it easy. Watching The Pianist for the second time. Also an excellent movie. I'd recommend it.

    Look, watch all 3 Dark Knights and tell us what you think. But definitely don't give up after Batman Begins.

    But you're ready to call Dark Knights one of the top 10 greatest movies ever?

    Better than the Godfather, Forrest Gump, Shawshank, Pulp Fiction etc.?

    It pisses and shits on Forrest Gump, but it can't knock those others from their perch.

    Oh. Excuse me. My bad. I should have been more clear. Top 10? No I don't believe so. That shouldn't deter you from watching it through. It's fantastic. It's just there's way too many great movies out there. Top 10 is an extremely small list man.

    My reply was that it's one of the greatest movies of all time. Top 10? I can't commit to that.

    Watch it dude. Watch all of them but at least both Dark Knights. What have you got to lose? Godfather, Scarface, Casino, Goodfellas, Once Upon A Time in America, Shawshank, Gladiator, No Country for Old Men, Shutter Island, Inception, there's a lot of excellent movies that everybody has to watch in my opinion. Dark Knight is up there. Both Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises.

    Top 10 is an extremely small list though. Can't put it up there but that doesn't mean it's not one of the greatest movies of our time if not all time.

    Top 10 ??? I can't believe that

    I'm a semi fan of superhero type movies, but I prefer the Marvel ones, but I wouldn't put any of them in the top 10

    This and Logan are the only super hero movies worth watching. Great movie. Top 10 probably not.
