‘The Dark Knight’ Is Hands Down the Best Superhero Movie Ever Made

Have you ever seen a perfect movie? A movie so undeniably brilliant and spot on that the more you watch it the better it gets? A movie that’s so good that you kind of can’t believe it’s that incredible? The Dark Knight is that movie for me.

I first wrote this post last November after watching The Dark Knight for only the third time in my life and now, after seeing it again for my fourth viewing on this fine Sunday, I decided to revisit this post and add a little bit more of why I think The Dark Knight is such an amazing movie.

Cinderella was a humble girl, living with her three mean stepsisters and her cruel stepmother. She was always treated poorly, never allowed pretty dresses and having to serve them. But she never complained and her goodness begot her a miraculous occurrence; meeting her fairy godmother.

I’m sure you know the rest of the story and it is a beautiful one. Cinderella would end up living happily ever after with newlywed husband, Prince Charming, and she would never have to endure the ugly actions of her stepsisters and stepmother ever again.
