It's rare that a movie comes along and is immediately hailed as the best of the genre, but "The Dark Knight" did just that and, to me, rightfully so. This movie isn't really even a comic book movie. Yeah, it's an adaptation, but no other comic book adaptation has leaped beyond it's origins to become a realistic, timely, and profound as this. Heath Ledger's performance is just as good, if not better, than every other review of the film will tell you, but the rest of the cast is amazing too. Aaron Eckhart's performance of Harvey Dent is severely underrated, and if he hadn't done so already, Christian Bale makes his mark as the finest caped crusader yet.

Inception (2010)
In my opinion, the most inventive film of the 21st Century.

Not as good as "The Dark Knight", but that sure as hell doesn't mean it's bad. Though the presence of Heath Ledger's Joker is sorely missed, Tom Hardy still creates one of cinema's finer villians, and easily one of the most menacing. Anne Hathaway is spectacular as Selina Kyle, rivaling Michelle Pfeiffer's version if not surpassing it. Christian Bale gives his finest performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman here, and Michael Caine is Oscar Worthy in his few, yet heartbreaking scenes as Alfred. It does stretch a bit in parts, but Christopher Nolan ends his Batman franchise at a height that very few directors or franchises can reach.

The first time that I saw this one, I really didn't get why so many people loved it. I felt that it was a film about magicians, without any real magic. But after my second viewing, it hit me, magic is a secondary storyline, the real story is obsession. The obsession that carries both magicians and fuels their rivalry. The ending is not for everyone, though I appreciate the genuine shock.

Solid, like all of Nolan's films, but lacking in the originality that propelled the other movies to greatness.

Only last because I've yet to see it.
