This is the movie that made me really lose faith in the Academy Awards. Ever since The Dark Knight was snubbed for an Oscar, it has made the awards, in my eyes, seem really biased and popularity-based, although the Academy made a smart move recently by not picking Avatar.
After seeing TDK, my perspective on movies changed. I have started taking movie-watching more seriously. It is not my favorite film, but ranks in the top 10. Not only is it a great comic book film, but it easily rivals many other classic films of our generation. Definitely one of the best films of the last decade.
