It's been a little slow recently, so I thought I'd take the time to post some reviews I've been meaning to write for a while.

Christopher Nolan is one of the most interesting directors currently working. Despite a rabid fanbase, Nolan is often regarded for his portfolio of creative movies which improve with multiple viewings (Memento, The Prestige, Inception, etc.). In 2005, he recreated the origin of one of the most iconic superheroes of all time with Batman Begins, giving this universe a darker and more realistic edge that had rarely been seen in superhero movies. He even bested himself with its sequel The Dark Knight, which I myself called the pinnacle of the superhero genre in my review of The Amazing Spiderman, highlighted by Heath Ledger's already iconic performance as the Joker. Now Nolan brings his Batman saga to a satisfying close with The Dark Knight Rises, a movie that somehow manages to exceed its already high expectations.
NOTE: Remember to take this review with a grain of salt, because this is just my opinion, which may not necessarily be yours.
