The Dark Knight 10th Anniv. / HBO's Sharp Objects

THE DARK KNIGHT turns ten this summer, and in the years since it won critical raves and dominated the 2008 box office, its reputation, influence and iconic status have only grown. But what does it look like after a decade of superhero movies made in its shadow? Adam and Josh give the Sacred Cow treatment to Christopher Nolan's film and - with the help of listeners - engage in a spirited debate about which film deserves the title of "Best Superhero Movie Ever." Plus, Adam's conversation with the writer and stars of HBO's SHARP OBJECTS.
