There will be plenty of movie fans who will have seen more than one of the new Batman films. However, for those who are discovering the Dark Knight for the first time, it can be hard to know which one is the best. There are so many different factors to consider when trying to decide which movie is superior. Perhaps the best place to start is by looking at the star-studded ensemble cast of The Dark Knight. There is certainly no mistaking that this is a major feat for a movie of this size and scope. It would be a major dissapointment if one of the main characters doesn’t live up to your expectations. This is a movie that you will want to see more than once, which is rare for a first-time viewer. Seeing as there are multiple connections between the movies, it would be fair to say that each film stands on its own two feet, but there is definitely more than one superior version.
The Dark Knight vs. The Dark Knight Rises
Let’s start with the newest film in the Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises. I believe this is the best of the three so far. It’s more character-driven, and there are actually a few twists and turns that the trailer didn’t reveal. After Heath Ledger’s iconic performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, it was hard to imagine anyone else playing the part. However, the late actor’s son, Jack, has proven that he is more than capable of carrying on his legacy. In fact, he’s even better than we could have ever imagined. His performance in The Dark Knight Rises is just as frightening and heart-breaking as we remember the Joker from the previous film. I was genuinely upset when I heard that Heath had passed away before the film’s premiere. It’s clear that Jack Ledger was going to be the best choice for the role, regardless of what anybody else thought. He is the true embodiment of the Joker.
This is one of the few instances where I would actually choose to see the film twice. The first time through, I would focus more on the character aspects of the story and less on the twists and turns. It’s a smaller movie, and not as flashy as the other two, so it’s more accessible to the average movie-goer. That way, when you see it a second time, you will be completely caught up in the thrill ride that is The Dark Knight Rises. All of the set-pieces, fights, and explosions will have made more sense to you than they did the first time around. It’s clear that this is a movie that will be talked about for a long time. You have to admit that there have been few performances that have been as mesmerizing and frightening as Robert Pattinson’s. He deserves his own movie, to keep him as a permanent fixture on our big screens.
The Dark Knight vs. Taxi Driver
Moving on to the second installment in the Batman series, The Dark Knight. This is another extremely well-made film, and it’s a grand slam home run if I do say so myself. It has one of the most terrifying villains of all time, and it also stars the incredible, Oscar-winning performance of Harvey Keitel as the insane, sociopathic taxi driver. There are so many incredible scenes from this movie, but I will start with the one that has gone viral on the Internet. It is impossible to talk about The Dark Knight and not mention the climactic scene, where Harvey Keitel mugs for the entire scene. It is something that will remain with you for the rest of your life. While working on set, I got the chance to speak with co-star and longtime collaborator Michael Caine, who was kind enough to give me his own personal pick for the best scene. He told me that it was one of the first scenes that they had ever shot, and that it was inspired by something that Alfred Hitchcock had said. The director had asked him to play it straight, so he could get a better sense of how the scene would play out. At first, Caine was a little reluctant to do so, as he felt that Harvey would not be able to keep up the pretense for the entire scene. However, he had to admit that it was ultimately one of the best things that had ever happened to him. He had to play the role for a while, but the audience knew exactly what was going on the entire time. This is a scene that will live in infamy, and it is an example of how good The Dark Knight is. It is extremely violent, and shockingly realistic; it doesn’t hurt that it’s also a character study of sorts, as well. The Dark Knight was also one of the first major roles for Tom Hardy, who recently won an Oscar for his performance. He carries this film with ease, and he also proves that he is more than capable of taking on larger and more complex roles. This is another one of the few instances where I would actually choose to see the film twice. It’s mostly because of the amount of violence in this movie, and the incredibly realistic and graphic depictions of gang violence. It’s a pretty dark film, for those who are interested. In fact, this is one of the few instances where I would recommend that parents take their young children, as there is a lot of bloodshed in this film. I think that it’s fair to say that The Dark Knight was one of the most important and influential films of the last ten years. It changed the way that people viewed movies, and it put an end to the ’80s ‘cute’ movie obsession. It’s a great story, about a man who decides to take on crime as a way of life.
The Dark Knight vs. The Grand Budapest Hotel
Continuing our list with the third installment in the Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises. This is one of the most unique and refreshing films that I have seen in a long time. First and foremost, it is a comedy. Second, it is a period piece. Third, it is set in one of the most famous hotels in the world, the famed Grand Budapest Hotel. Finally, it is not based on any particular comic book, but it nevertheless borrows heavily from the stories and characters that we know and love. If you haven’t heard of The Grand Budapest Hotel, it’s likely that you’ll be hearing about it soon, as it is one of the most popular films of the last year. Even those who have seen it before can’t help but stop by to check out the sets, as they are something to behold. There are so many different aspects to this film that it would be impossible to cover them all in an article. It’s clear that many people are still discovering this gem, due to its limited release and lack of advertising. It is also a film that deserves to be seen in theaters, as it is one of the most entertaining films that I have ever seen. The dark comedy and impeccable direction from Wes Anderson combine for one of the most exhilarating experiences that I have had in a movie theater. It is extremely difficult to write about this film without giving anything away. The best approach would be to see it yourself, as soon as possible. This is a must-see for anyone who enjoys cinema. The performance of Ralph Fiennes, in particular, who plays the role of the pianist Micky Hall, deserves an Oscar. It would not be a stretch to say that Fiennes is one of the greatest thespians of our time. He embodies the roguish, arrogant pianist, with the utmost perfection. He also has one of the most unique and memorable voices that I have ever heard. The entire cast of The Grand Budapest Hotel is incredible and must-see, as well. As strange as it may seem, this is one of the few instances where I would choose to see the movie more than once. It’s mostly because of the sheer amount of comedy in this film. It’s one thing to enjoy a dark story, but it’s another to laugh through most of it. This is a film that could inspire multiple viewings. The dialogue is impeccable, and it’s incredibly witty and light-hearted. The writing and directing are both on a par with each other, as they both shine through in each and every scene. Visually, this film is astounding. It uses color, composition, editing, and set design to create a fully immersive environment that the viewer is instantly transported into.
