The Dark Knight (2008)

Director: Christopher Nolan

Writers: Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan

(Story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer)

This movie is pretty all over the place, seems like there are like 7 acts, but I enjoy it all the same.  I would rather see an ambitious, but slightly flawed, movie than an adequate risk free movie (looking at you Avengers).  All star cast, stand out of course being Heath Ledger’s Joker.  Kind of like watching a 13 episode season of a would be Batman TV series but edited down to 2 1/2 hours.  There is a ton of stuff going on in this movie and it seems overwhelming but damn is it enjoyable.  Love the action set pieces.  After watching Batman Begins so recently you can definitely see Nolan becoming more comfortable in terms of Action directing.  Really looking forward to Rises!
