It's like dropping a rock into a pond; the ripples disappear eventually; no doubt the film will remain highly rated, of course.

The court scenes was the only thing I didn't like about The Dark Knight. The court room seen in The Dark Knight does look like a set, not just because of the lack of windows, but because they were dressed simpler. From what I recall, there was nothing on the walls, no seal, no architectural pleasantries, no flag (but I could be wrong about that bit), nothing but flat boring walls. The court room in Batman Begins had much going on for it.

In addition to the actual set, I thought the acting was a bit awkward and stilted, but maybe that's because I've watched too much Law & Order.
Law and Order: Gotham

I'd pay to see that

Emh, the majority of courtrooms look like that. They're not all grand, and courtrooms that are in the middle of a building tend not to have windows looking outside. So if you're ever on trial for anything, good luck with the "this looks like a set" defense.

As of this posting, the IMDb has The Dark Knight as the #3 best movie of all time after The Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption.
Right now it's at #1.
Of course, that's with only 23,611 votes to The Godfather's 288,072 and The Shawshank Redemption's 339,555.
I still need to go see the Shank.

Right after I see the Dark Knight 50 more times.

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

Finally got around to seeing it today. Really good! BUT... still doesn't beat X-Men 2 as my all-time favorite superhero movie. Gadgets and bullets just aren't as fun as superpowers! Heck, I don't think any solo superhero movie can top X-Men's team aspect. Still, I'd probably rank The Dark Knight just below X-Men 2.

Great movie, felt more like a suspense, crime Drama than a comic book movie, which is a definite bonus.

I know, but it's still impressive even if it doesn't stay there.

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

I'm surprised anyone fell for the "death" of Jim Gordon.

Hello!!! It's Jim GORDON! Lieutenant Gordon at the time! I mean, come on, how dense can you be. I didn't believe it for a second.

Someone above mentioned a continuity error with Gordon's wife feeding a baby in BB and both children beening much older here. Well, it's possible she was sitting a relative's or neighbors kid.

People cheered and clapped when Gordon re-appeared to capture Joker. I think even the most suspecting people fell for it.

Well, if you wanna get technical, that woman in BB was a completely different woman so maybe Gordon has two lives... just like Bruce Wayne!

Look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is Gordon's future is secured.

Yeah, I didn't see that one coming either; which was weird, looking back, because intellectually I knew Gordon couldn't possibly be dead, but the movies old me on it subjectively.
wasn't the most obvious part that Commissioner Gordon hadn't been promoted to Commissioner yet? For him to die Lt. Gordon wouldn't exactly make any sense, would it?
