Well, I'm usually the first to criticize the "Best singers" or "Best rock Songs ever" Lists that get posted up, but i think this one will get some interesting answers.

http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

This list is stupid. My main case against it; The Dark Knight is the 5th best movie. Ever. Seriously? Discus.

win.


seriously, anyone can vote on those movies. if a movie is popular, there is a good chance it will get a lot of positive votes.
#5
It's because it was voted by users, not movie-professionals, which is why it is whacky.

Agreed, Pulp Fiction and Schindlers List are better.

Kill Bill was better than the Dark Knight IMO.

Also, Maltese Falcon should be higher up. I'd probably put Pulp Fiction at one but I'm a huge Tarantino fan.

And no Kevin Smith films?

Fight Club should be higher.

I could keep going but I won't.

I don't like that list.

If you don't give foreign movies a 10 out of 10, you're racist. It's an unwritten law.

I'm not saying the Dark Knight was bad, it was fantastic (mostly), but it being in the top 5 is dumb. No movie buff can scroll through that entire list and not think "That's better then the Dark Knight".

Casino and Goodfellas are infinity better than the Godfather. Glad to see Se7en on there. Couldn't care less about any of the superhero movies, as I have said before, they are all predictable and I find them very boring.

Saving Private Ryan needs to be WAY higher, def. a top 10 movie. Reservoir Dogs need to be higher too.

Give me a break. You JUST read the name of the movie in the list, and you can't even spell it correctly?

Forrest Gump's only 46?

I call BS.

Was i the only one who enjoyed iron man more than the dark knight ?

TDK was good for me...it was just draggy in some parts and good at best...but the scenes with the joker were PURE MINT ! That's the only reason that made the movie really standout. The movie was a mix between awesome joker scenes and ok other scenes....

And the batman's voice... Don't get me started.

Guess who wins in every single one...thats right our hero, wow, thrilling plot line there. I suppose if I HAD to I would watch Batman before Spiderman, I got 25 minutes into Spiderman one before cutting it off and haven't seen any of them since, but don't look for me to be going to or buying any superhero movies any time soon.

I think the superhero fad has ended for now. They all know they can't beat The Dark Knight, the 5th best film ever.

Total bull. Wall-E made top 100 of all time? Just, no.

And Dark Knight was awesome, and deserves a high rank. But that high is debatable.

ok, maybe you should say this IMO, instead of making it sound like a fact. Also, no need to be a dick about it really. Everyone has their own opinions, deal with it. the world doesn't revolve around you.

I figured that IMO was implied, to each his own, not looking for a debate, just thought I'd give my thoughts on why I think superhero movies are overrated. So yes I will clarify all of that was IMO. Sorry if i came off as a dick.

God, that bothers the hell out of me.

Dark Knight is 5th best on that site due to all of the little emo boys and girls who bombarded the site and voted on it. It has nothing to do with how good it is. Don't get me wrong, it's a great movie, but it has way more popularity than it would of had 10-15 years ago. Things that are "dark" and "evil" are trendy these days.

Thank the lord the IMDB staff's oppinions are more educated than the users.
