heath ledger joker

10 years later, Heath Ledger‘s tragic passing still stings. The 28-year-old actor was just at the beginning of a meteoric rise to stardom, collecting an Oscar nomination for his work in 2005’s profoundly affecting Brokeback Mountain and giving a career-defining performance as the Joker in 2008’s The Dark Knight, for which he would earn a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

The Joker would become the performance he was most remembered for and his last starring role (aside from a posthumous appearance in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus). But the character’s fate at the end of The Dark Knight always had viewers wondering if there was an intent to bring the Joker back before Ledger’s untimely death. Now, a decade later, Ledger’s sister reveals that there was.

The Dark Knight 10th Anniversary Screening

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since The Dark Knight blew audiences away. Christopher Nolan crafted one of the finest comic book sequels ever made. Hell, he crafted one of the best blockbusters ever made. It’s just a fantastic film all around.

If you haven’t gotten enough of the movie in your repeated viewings on Blu-ray/DVD or on HBO or TNT, fear not, because the 10th anniversary of The Dark Knight will bring the film back to select theaters. However, you might find it difficult to catch it if you don’t live on the East coast. Read More »

Baby Driver Opening Chase - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, one awesome video maps out the real geography of the opening chase sequence from Baby Driver. Plus, Batman: The Animated Series voice actor Kevin Conroy reads the closing monologue from The Dark Knight, and a video essay takes a closer look at the use of a certain auditory illusion that adds to the suspense and tension in Dunkirk.

Christopher Nolan Netflix

If you held an elimination tournament to determine the movie director who was best representative of the 2000s, there are many names that might make it into the final round. Taste is subjective, of course, but by now there is enough distance between us and the decade that we should be able to look back on it with a degree of clarity.

Going by the criteria of the National Film Registry — whereby motion pictures are evaluated as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” — there is one director whose total output in the 2000s (including teaser trailers for 2010 films) arguably had the most pervasive influence.

The 10 Best Christopher Nolan Scenes

Dunkirk - Christopher Nolan

This week marks the arrival of the latest film from one of Hollywood’s best and biggest directors, Christopher Nolan. His new film, Dunkirk, is an even bigger event than usual for a couple reasons: first, the entire film was shot in a mix of IMAX and 65mm film, and second, it’s the first time Nolan has made a fictional film based on real events. Dunkirk, being about the infamous Battle of Dunkirk in World War II, is also the first time Nolan has stepped into the war-film genre after years in the world of comic books and science fiction. No doubt Dunkirk will have at least one or two memorable scenes or sequences, but today, I’d like to highlight the 10 best scenes of Nolan’s filmography up to Dunkirk. There are plenty of contenders that didn’t make the cut, especially from The Prestige and The Dark Knight, but let’s get on with the list.
