    A good read indeed. Dark Knight not being nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay just revealed to me how big of a joke the Oscars really are. I mean if a film like The Dark Knight had come out prior to the 90's the Academy wouldn't have hesitated to include it in those categories since they had already awarded numerous blockbuster genre films nominations (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark). If you look at the nominations of 2009 no one talks about half of those films anymore, but The Dark Knight is still talked about. I had no idea that Weinstein was potentially responsible for it missing out on major nominations.

    Crazy how 10 years ago right now I was on my way to the theater to get in line for the midnight IMAX screening.

    Here is an article about that.

    At this time 10 years ago I was in an IMAX theatre getting my mind blown by this film. I like Batman Begins and, to a lesser extent, The Dark Knight Rises but this film is way above both of them along with every other film in the genre.

    Happy 10th Anniversary to "The Dark Knight"

    It's all about politics. What does it say about the Academy where a producer like Weinstein is able to bully a film into getting a best picture nomination?

    The only ones I've seen in Canada have been the Ontario Place IMAX screenings in Toronto. Hopefully there'll be more in the upcoming month.

    Alright guys, Summer's winding down and I'm seeing less and less screenings. So I'm throwing in the towel on this thing. Feel free to use it for more screenings, or convo regarding the 10th Anniversary.

    I knew there was a reason I didn't watch Screen Junkies videos. Their insights and critiques of the film are... unimpressive.

    Unfortunately i feel like both Screen junkies and the collider/schmoes know people have become less interesting in their critiques/humor these days and more snobbish imo. They're all kind of hard to watch these days, especially when they flat out miss things from films.

    Yes. Well to me it wasn't that they criticized TDK (although it is amusing that for the 10th anniversary video none of them seemed to be particularly big fans of the movie). It is just they have the same milquetoast hipster opinions from 2008 that look even more contrarian 10 years later.

    There are criticisms to be made, but that just read as "I really don't like how popular this movie is. Still."
