It'll even out over time. There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men both cracked the Top 40 for a short time and have settled markedly lower, I believe.
Never trust IMDB ratings for any film that's been out for less than 5 years. Period.

Ledger was such a force. I'm really eager to go back and watch the rest of his work now.

I may try and be a bit ballsy and do David Bowie... Ziggy most likely.

Yes. To try to ease the stick out of his arse, they started slipping him drugs. Didn't work, obviously.

It's more the whole, I'm not getting how the imdb system works thing that bothers me. Like Shawshank being in second (pre Dark Knight) even though it had the same score as The Godfather, and more votes as well. But I guess it must have something to do with having the same score with more lower marked scores or something Yeah....I'm sure TDK will go down, and obviously it deserves to be somewhere in the Top 40, my own opinions aside, I can't deny the masses, just not #1

In our school, everyone does group things for Halloween. Supposedly, my gang is doing a re-make of MarioKart 64. I'm just hoping I don't end up being Peach (I'm counting on ending up Peach, though).

YES.

I don't do anything for Halloween, but I think dress-up parties are now gonna be a very tough decision between Weaving's V and Ledger's Joker.

Well I'm certainly glad I don't go to that church.
I saw a few families in the theater today... that surprised me.

It was just as good upon second viewing, too.

Aside from the placement of the movies and slant toward more recent films, it's got a pretty good assortment of great movies to go by. The genre and decade-specific lists are far more helpful, I think.

This movie aside, I'm contented with the fact that I can still say I never really cared for any previous Ledger movies...Oh except the Patriot. I LOVE The Patriot.

Why does everyone suddenly care about the IMDB ratings having that bias? Did everyone not know that was going to happen? I was sure it would. It'll drop back to normal in time, and I've not given it a second thought. It happens all the time on there. Who cares?
