The Dark Knight
9 years ago via Movies on Facebook

Thank you, Christopher Nolan. Thank you for understanding that movies based on comic books can be made for intelligent adults and don't need flashy CG effects or dumbed down dialogue. We are truly living in a Golden Age of comic book movies and the "The Dark Knight" is the genre's new masterpiece. Watching the movie I felt that everything that happened on screen could exist in the real world. There are no magical superpowers or silly plot lines here. "The Dark Knight" reminded me more of "The Score," "The Untouchables," and "Scarface" than a comic book movie and this lends to the stark reality of the world presented. Sorry Jack Nicholson, but your interpretation of the Joker looks lazy compared to Heath Ledger's. Without giving away too much, the scene in which the Joker performs his 'magic trick' sold the audience completely on the brutality of his psychotic way of thinking. The strong supporting cast of heavyweights acted beautifully without trying to overshadow Christian Bale's morally conflicted Batman.
Gotham City is falling apart. No matter what the tragic heroes of Gotham try to do, the criminals are always one step ahead of them. Our leads are never comfortable, never at ease. A lot of movies try to keep the audience on edge with this formula, but few pull it off and even fewer do it well; "The Dark Knight"? does it very well and we get the sense that things might be worse at the end of the film than at the beginning. I plan to brave the frustrating lines at the theater and see it again this weekend because Warner Brothers really has something here. "The Dark Knight" is a perfect storm of a summer movie and, in the end the audience will reap all of the benefits. I left the theatre with a grin from ear to ear giggling like a fourteen year old girl. Yeah, it was that fucking great.

Iron Man
Iron Man (2008)

"Iron Man" delivers on all of it's promises in ways that movies like "Transformers" never could. It runs like a well oiled machine with dialog that pops and tension that builds. Robert Downey Jr. plays the epitome of asshole/superhero chique while staying grounded as a person who maybe, just maybe, has a soul. I let out a maniacal laugh at the end while deciding whether or not to get back in line. If you haven't seen it, go now before your friends find out.

No Country for Old Men

Not since "Alien" has the lack of a score heightened the suspense this much. This is a great movie to satiate your cinematic cravings.

Superbad (2007)

Pretty much the funniest thing ever. I can recall five minutes where I wasn't dying of laughter. Worth every penny.

The best movie of 2007.
