I think this thread is just a reference to that "It's just some Random Guy" video where "TDK" was sold out well into the year 2047, brought about peace and prosperity, ended war and hunger, aided in us making contact with Alien life, impressed Santa Claus and brought about the 2nd coming of Christ.

And it's all true

lol j/k ... Still very funny to see what other goofy implications can be attributed to "TDK."

I think alot of the intense rebellion seen in Heath Ledger's brilliant performance as the Joker motivated some new voters to hit the ballots yesterday.

I'm not an idiot.
Yeah! It was the pencil trick. I can see it now. Obama is going to make the mortgage crisis disappear. Tada itís gone

As long as he does the pencil trick to Paulson, I'm okay with that.

When you think about it, that would be somewhat in line with the movie.

I was thinking, maybe in a way electing Obama and TDK are both our woodstock. Because my generation caused this change, basically. We were under the rule of what was and is essentially a dictatorship of about a few conservative oil and war mongers. But then you see all this backlash. Protest songs become popular, just like in the 60's, and artists start speaking out against the atrocities. Musicians and actors, soon enough you have movies like Redacted and those anti-war movies that caused a bunch of controversy when the president tried to shut them down. So 2008 was kind of our year for the counter-culture to return in the form of TDK. And with the help of that film, I like to think, we might just have ended the old empire and elected a man who offers us "hope".

The movie was just that. A movie. Outside the Hype, in the real adult world, the Dark Knight came and went. Sure, I'll buy that a small portion of younger voters were swayed by the movie in a misguided way, but Obama's win cannot be attributed to the film, and it surely is not anyone's Woodstock.

So does this make Sarah Palin TDK's mayor with the heavy black eyeliner?

Exactly. I still like discussing the film, but for most people who saw it, it was enjoyable to watch, inspired a Halloween costume fad and nothing much more.

TDK is a good movie. A great movie in fact that explores the issues every society faces that are especially pravalent and facing our country in this decade. However, it is a work of art and while occasionally art has the ability to influence and change the course of cultural consciousness and even history...it is mostly something enjoyed by whatever capacity is seen fit by its audience. Most of its audience likely did not even pick up on the political, social and philosophical undertones and labeled it as a comic book flick.

And in any case, there is no way that the most important election of our lifetime was decided by a superhero movie.

It just didn't happen that way.

I will never for the life of me figure out how every ****ing thing in existence relates to TDK.

The Dark Knight really didn't criticize anything. It showed more along the lines that there were two sides to everything.

One one hand you had Batman's methods of torture and eavesdropping and they were portrayed as ethically wrong, but they were also portrayed as methods that got things done. Whether or not it was morally right was the question.

It reality, the Dark Knight presented these political/social topics in a brilliant way that took no side and showed that both arguments have valid viewpoints.
