I truly envy you. The Nolan Batman movies suck because Nolan and Bale suck in general.

Just check out some scenes from the movie on YouTube. It’s pretty awesome

Ledger was awesome in it.

What characteristics of this movie do you guys feel justifies it as a top 10 or one of the greatest of all time?

Acting, compelling story, good dialogue, satisfying ending, great acting and set pieces, good cinematography. Excellent replay value.

I mean it might not be a top 10 movie but its one that I will watch whenever its on, much like Casino, Goodfellas, Godfather, etc.

So, if not a top 10, then what is the criteria for “one of the greatest”?

Based on your title of this thread, what is your criteria of “greatest of all time” if you do not feel it is a top 10 of all time?

I feel like i'm on trial but essentially what I said a few posts up...I mean "best of all time" is going to vary person to person.

For me, its a movie I can watch countless times and not be bored. Story is hugely important BUT it doesnt need to be super deep to always be amazing. It can easily be simple but told in a smart way, if that makes sense.

Dialog is big for me. A movie can be great but quickly ruined by shitty dialog which in turn delivers a shitty performance from an actor. Also needs to have a true ending..it can have sequels and whatever, but it needs to have a satisfying conclusion....and for that matter, is needs to have a solid first, second and final act - so good flow. A lot of movies start strong and then spiral by trying to cram too much story or character backstory which weighs it down. You can turn that around too....some movies spend the first hour or more hand holding and making sure EVERYTHING has a back story and then when it finally gets good, you only get a taste.

I'm SUPER picky with movies and like things that others might strongly disagree with (see me and Sprayin squabbling).

I dont think there is a set criteria, if you want the cliff note version.

But I do feel in another 10 years, TDK will still be referenced as a game changer.

There is no right or wrong answer as you are expressing an opinion.

As you are the OP, this is understanding your perspective and an interest in your thought process as to how you define one of the greatest movies of all time. I’m inquiring, but not asking the 5 Whys or cross examining.

From how it appears the movie fulfills particular criteria that you look for and enjoy; however, as you posted, is not a top 10.

I just watched this flick again the other week. It has a great watchability factor. Definitely a great movie.
