Nope. It's #1 on the Top list that only counts regular voters. That is extremely impressive. I have never seen a movie move onto the list in a single weekend let alone a single night.http://www.imdb.com/chart/top
If thats the case The Dark Knight is vastly overrrated, IMO. It's a good movie but its not amazing or anything. I think part of the reason why the movie felt Sooooo long to me was because there were no parts where you just went WOW, or were on the edge of your seat. It's good, just shouldn't be anywhere near #1 all time, IMO.
If I remember right Wall-E held the #1 spot on the top 250 list at IMDB with a score of 9.3 or 9.4 after it's opening weekend - though it looks like TDK has a lot more votes than Wall-E did at this point. It's at #22 now (which is still awfully impressive) but has been steadily falling the last few weeks.
It's logical that movies start high on the list then see their scores fall gradually over time. Those who are inclined to like the movie will see it first (i.e. fans of the Batman series/people who are generally excited to see it) and will naturally enjoy it for just that reason (they're already fans). Whereas casual moviegoers like myself will probably like the movie but won't rave about it like those who were pumped up to see it. The Heath Ledger performance/tragedy and rave reviews from the press are clearly pulling up the score as well.
Maybe I shouldn't be making comparisons between Wall-E and The Dark Knight since I've only seen one of them (Wall-E which I'd give an 8/10) but I'd be surprised if both don't continue to move down. Both will probably settle in around the middle 8's in the rankings. Good for a top 50 but not a top 10 or 25 position.
