“The Dark Knight” (2008).
ok this first one is a bit predictable but we can also get “dark Knight” out of the way first.
Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy Came at a time when the superhero movie market wasn’t as saturated as it is now, and it offered audiences a semi-surreal, modern take on the Caped Crusader with an extraordinary cast and crew.
“The Dark Knight” blends post-9/11 scares and edgy blockbuster storytelling to pit Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne against a sinister threat, the Joker (Heath Ledger), whose sole motivation is chaos for chaos’ sake. have to be born.
Of course, Ledger’s performance is nothing short of legendary and defined the clown prince of crime for a generation – earning him a posthumous Oscar.
The plot itself is far more complex and real than anything else in the MCU, partly because it doesn’t need to revolve around superpowers or cosmic beings to tell its story. Instead, a bunch of incredibly well-written heroes, villains, and everyone in between.
This is all without mentioning the sheer talent Nolan assembled behind the screen, as it features Hans Zimmer’s goosebumps score, Wally Pfister’s gorgeous cinematography, and David S. Goyer’s brilliant story.
