Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

Wow, Roeper and Michael Phillips just said (on Ebert and Roeper At the Movies) that TDK merits a Best Picture nomination, and they can't imagine Ledger not getting a Best Supporting nomination, and not for sympathy reasons. That it is possibly the best superhero epic ever made, one of the best films of the decade - a real ensemble piece where every performance is even better than you expect from the talented cast. No Godfather II comparisons - Heat and The Departed were the films invoked.

I expected a good review, but I'm stunned to hear such complete praise, especially fron two guys who usually only grudgingly agree. Good lord - this may be even better than I thought it was going to be. Considering my hopes for the flick, this is getting into, forgive the pun, crazy territory.
