To be honest, I think the Dark Knight trilogy is too grounded for me. I like the grittiness, but I also like the over the top aspect of Batman with his villains. I also feel that the franchise is overrated. I’m not saying the movies aren’t good though. I watched them, but I wouldn’t watch them repeatedly.
Also, don’t attack me, but I don’t like Heath Ledger’s Joker. He did an amazing job, but sometimes I feel people overhype his Joker because he died after playing him. No disrespect to Heath Ledger; he was a great actor.
