look up any word, like dirty brownie:
A movie that proves that when a production staff actually works to make a sincerely great movie, it will, in the end, pay off infinitely better than the endless flood of quickie cash-ins that comprise 90% of Hollywood's output these days.
The Dark Knight is one of the best movies of the past several years, and excels in every way it aims to.

The reason film was made. Has everything you want and nothing you don't.
The Dark Knight doesn't have Katie Holmes.

Definitely the best Batman movie ever, had a great story and great writing, and a joker who really served the character in the comic books well.

The one thing I would change if I could would be to go ahead and show the graphic bits and let it be R-rated. I think the MPAA tripped this movie up, like they trip up every action movie that wants to stay in the PG-13 slot.
After seeing The Dark Knight I asked everyone, "Why so serious?"

Pretty much the best movie out to date. It is the sequal to Batman Begins which is also a really awesome movie. The Joker, Heath Leder, pretty much makes the movie. GO SEE IT NOW!!!
The Dark Knight is pretty much my new favorite movie.

Why so serious?

A movie that I watched three times because it was too awesome, two normal screenings and once in IMAX.

IMAX was the best experience.
I even downloaded The Dark Knight cam torrent just so I can watch it again.

1. A common nickname for Batman. The Caped Crusader is another popular nickname.

2. A highly critically acclaimed adaption of the Batman comic books that is mostly based on "The Killing Joke" and "Batman: The Long Halloween". It is also serves as a sequal to the successful "Batman Begins" and is the darkest and most realistic take on Batman to date.
Poseur (before the movie was released): Who is The Joker?

Smart Person: The Dark Knight was a great movie but it can't compare to the comics.

Denotes something that exhibits an outstanding excellence in its field, a kind that will be difficult for others to top.
