If you go to IMDb, you might have seen that the new batman has beaten The Godfather as #1 on the top 250 movies of all time. Do you think The Dark Knight is worth #1?

I liked it a lot, and I've been to it three times (but only because I was invited, I wouldn't have planned to go myself any more than twice), but I'm not sure if its better than the Godfather. I also haven't seen The Shawshank Redemption (#2, now #3) so I can't judge if batman is better.
#4
In all honesty, the Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather and the Dark Knight are the three best films I've seen.
#5
I dunno it's pretty epic to be fair.

It's not better than the godfather or the shawshank redemption and it will move down by the time the dvd comes out.
#7
meh a lot of fags voted the godfather and shawshank as 1 star so that dark knight would get to the top.

I'm yet to see the dark knight so i'll reserve judgement on it, but I can't help but feel it has a bit of the "death effect" to thank for it's good reviews.

no the dark knight i thought was an excellent movie. Ledgers acting in it upstaged every one.

it definitely isn't the greatest movie ever, but it should be near the top somewhere.

btw, the godfather is very overrated.

It doesn't deserve to be #1 It was a great movie, not the best ever.

I don't agree Batman should be number 1 but I also don't agree with the Godfather either.

Batman was a great film but I'd reserve its place in maybe my top 15 all time.

The "death effect" has no effect. The only effect it has is the pissy/sad effect because he won't be in another one.

I think it deserves #1 because it's probably the best film I've seen of this generation, and The Godfather has been #1 for 30 something years already (NOTE: I don't hate The Godfather), and I think it's actually good to have another movie as #1 for once, and The Dark Knight was great enough to be at the top.

EDIT: I'd have to agree though with some of you guys, it's not the BEST, but it's one of the greatest so far.

It's just new film hype. If you look, Wall-E is also very high up, it'll die down eventually.

Heath Ledger definitely gets the #1 character ever in my books. He played it so well that I forgot he died, so I wasn't biased while watching. He was fucking amazing.

I think it just scrapes number 1. It is one of the greatest films I've ever seen, but I think a small portion of the hype surrounding TDK is overblown merely for the fact that Ledger died after filming.

I remember all the doubt when they announced him as the joker, and then as soon as he died, people started jumping onto his dick.

I do have to agree in one part, it would make sense for the list to be a bit more dynamic and not just focus on the classics. And I do think The Dark Knight is probably in my Top 5 of all time.

I'll just add, my all time favorite movie is either Pulp Fiction or Fight Club.
#23
It was a really great film, definitely in the top 5 pretty much. But Shawshank was much better, and although I havent seen Godfather, there are a few better films.

I don't like the Godfather movies. But rating a movie as number one seems a bit weird to me. I mean just because it's on some site does it really mean it's the best movie ever made? I liked The Dark Knight but it doesn't matter where it is ranked on best movies because I simply do not care. Sorry if I sounded like a jerk but I'm just saying it only deserves the spot you think it deserves.

thats only because alot of godfather fans were doing the same to TDK.

I can honestly say its the best film ive seen in my life time. Ive seen in 4x in theatres alone.

But there is no definate best movie so this argument is stupid. Just like there's no definate best band or best painting.

I know, I'm just pointing out that since the movie came out 30 years ago, Newsletters and other media have been calling it #1. Not counting when IMDB users started rating it.

this thread is about it getting the number 1 spot of the IMDB list and as the godfather isn't everyones favourite film my point still stands, don't be a wanker.

thats because it actually is a great film, like i said though, i haven't seen the dark knight so i don't know if it's good or bad, but i still think it's fairly crappy to rate what are pretty damn good films 1 star to get another film to the top ... if the film was that good it would get their on it's own.

Well I'm not really saying that IMDb defines it, there are tons of other movie lists out there, I'm just saying that apparently 165,800 voters on IMDb think it should be #1 so it means a high amount of people think its the best of all time.

it will die down eventually, probably settling to someplace in the top 30.

now, on my own list TDK would be lucky to crack the top 30.

you do realize that a movie's greatness is totally subjective right?
