15 years ago, on July 18, 2008. Christopher Nolan releases one of the most highly-praised comicbook/superhero films of all time. The Batman vs. Joker oriented-story took the world by storm as one of the greatest Batman stories told, complimenting actors performances, beautiful cinematography, and amazing storytelling. The film surpassed $1.006 billion in the box office, and to this day still stands as a major fan-favorite.
Today, feel free to join in on the discussion and talk about your experience with The Dark Knight and why you love it… or hate it, everybody has their own preference lol. Don’t hesitate to get even a little philosophical with the film, like the film itself.
Here’s a quick listen to one of my favorite film scores ever…
My first time seeing The Dark Knight was not in theaters, but on DVD. It was the first superhero/comicbook film that I’ve seen, next to Iron Man. The Dark Knight was what really introduced me to the world of superheroes. Now at the time time of seeing it, I was only 6 yrs old, so I didn’t really understand what the hell was going on lol. But as I got older, becoming more familiar with superheroes, the different universes, and even the multiple meanings behind it, I started to understand and gain an appreciation for The Dark Knight as a growing Batman fan.
In my mid to late teens, someone who’s been learning film, my appreciation for it grew EVEN MORE as a film lover. There’s a lot of layers and backstory to this movie, and it’s remained to this day being one of my favorite films ever.
