Dark Knight, Schmark Knight, or the Power of Mammy
Much has been made this year of THE DARK KNIGHT almost catching TITANIC in the "most $$ ever made" race. It got close - real close. In fact, when you factor in DVD sales, it'll probably pass James Cameron's sinking ship. But, thanks to the wonderful folks at IMDB (and really, is there a website we take for granted more than IMDB - could you imagine if they started charging?), we now have the Top 25 All Time Box Office Winners - adjusted for inflation! This is a fascinating list. I'll let you read it yourself, but here's a bit of a spoiler for you: Walt Disney was a genius. This list is a kind of paean to what a good family movie can do. Take note, Hollywood!
