An Ode to Debunking The Dark Knight as The Greatest Film of All Time

Thursday, July 24, 2008 Leave a Comment

- Ali Starzyk and Jeff Luppino-Esposito

In response to IMDB's users ranking 'The Dark Knight' as the number one film of all time.

UPDATE: The fans have gone even further

Please don't be mistaken
For i enjoyed the movie, you see
But what brought my heart to achin'
Was its status on IMDB

I saw the movie at the mall
And trust I loved the Joker
But what's with Maggie Gyllenhaal
And that random Asian Broker

Every theater rightfully booked
But let's just face the facts
Two Face Harvey sorta looked
Like the alien from Mars Attacks

This was a thriller, a deserving hit
I'm in love with Christian Bale
But he was underused you must admit
And he may end up in jail

When we left the IMAX feeling gay
Many scurried off to pee
I heard one eager grandma say
"Why wasn't it in 3-D!?"

The Greatest Movie of all time?
You really must be clueless
You'd need more plot and way less crime
Plus the Penguin as Daniel Day-Lewis

Like this Ode? Try another!

    hmm, i did love it, but i agree, not the best movie of all time. Ledger was damn good tho

    Also take into consideration that there were a lot fewer reviews popping up for Dark Knight than The Godfather, the film right below it. Give Dark Knight another 30 years and it won't be as high.

    Unless, of course, it really is just as classic as people say. For my money, best movie ever? No way. The best superhero movie ever? Absolutely. The best movie to come out so far this year? Almost certainly (it's only real competition at this point is probably Wall-E). Whether it will be remembered as an all-time great is up to history, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    It doesn't even sniff the greatest movie of all time.
