Christopher Nolan's latest exploration of the Batman mythology steeps its muddled plot in so much murk that the Joker's maniacal nihilism comes to seem like a recurrent grace note.
Joe Morgenster, I just saw this movie. I have to say that your review was terrible, and you obviously should not be a critic. This movie was by far one of the best movies in a long time. If you dislike this movie then you have problems. Nolan's work here climaxed with Bale and Ledger's performances. So think twice before you write a poor review about a great summer flick.

this homophobic review could only come from a deeply-closetted pederast

He is entitled to his review, I personally thought the movie was great but if you take out Ledger's performance you really have a bunch of the same as usual superhero stuff.

why are you even a film critic? i am simply a guy who loves movies but there should be some objectivity to reviewing movies. for instance say a plot is boring to me. just because i did not like the story does not mean the movie was not well made, the actors were not good etc. i can think of terms of endearment, sophie's choice, atonement and many others where i just did not find the movie interesting yet i had to acknowledge it was good. how can you give this movie anything short of pretty darn good even if you do not realize it is great?

You rated Mama Mia above TDK?! Are you mental?

Joe Morgenstern's latest review of the Batman mythology steeps its complete snobbiness in so much bullcrap that Presidentjlh's pointless comment comes to seem like a stroke of brilliance.
Seriously, Joe, WTF. The Dark Knight freaking ruled.

The majority of Joe's review sounded positive. He continually praises Ledger's performance and says that Bale's performance was good. There's not much negative in his review, so why the rotten review? He does a poor job supporting his stance.

you are a horrible critic, this film was amazing in all levels and anyone who says otherwise simply doesn't know what a good movie is.

he gave momma mia and meet dave a postive review...thats says it all, oh yea, drop dead old bastard.
Jul 18 - 08:31 PM
What are you? A 40 year old guy with a five year old's brain??? Mamma Mia over TDK??? A seven year old can rate movies better than you!

You can't tell me that the interrogation scene between the joker and batman is not one of the best scenes ever!
Jul 18 - 08:37 PM
And have you even read any of the comics??? And how is the plot muddled??? It made perfect sense to me. I swear...you wouldn't know a good movie even if it drove the Joker's semi staight into you at 200 miles and hour. Do us all a favor and go find some other job!

You did see the NEW batman not the one with Jack Nicholson rite?This movie is the best and will remain the best of the year.. You're an idiot Joe.
Sorry your intellect was limited to the point where it seemed muddled to you. Most of us were able to understand it without much effort.
It seem like as an exercise in ego, some critics merely want to set themselves apart by not wishing to agree with the majority. There doesn't seem to be any other reason for you to give this magnificent film the thumbs down.

Joe Morgenster... Which Batman movie did you actually watched, the Joel Schumacher's version or the Christopher Nolan's version? The actual Nolan's version IS NOT the one on DVD, so you should go to your nearest theater and watch the actual Batman movie you were supposed to review. Also, remember to take your daily Namenda and Razadyne pills. Take care!

After FINALLY seeing this film, i can happily say that all the critics that rated it rotten can just retire now.........as in RIGHT NOW!!!TURN IN YOU PENSTURN IN YOUR PAPERSAND TURN IN YOU LAPTOPSIf someone who is watching this film watches it for great acting, dialogue, and action, then I cannot fathom why ANYONE wouldn't like this movie, its gotta be either they don't like dark movies, or they don't like "comic book" moviesbut for critics they get three reasons, and the third is that they are looking for attention. And that's all I have to say about that.
