Ok so here goes. Most people have heard of Christopher Nolan. Well if you have haven't then why not and for more info so I don't bore you head over to for all the latest on all Nolan's films. I think I better keep this short and sweet, ha, ha good luck me LOL. Firstly DO NOT go and see The Dark Knight Rises without the viewing of Batman Begins (my rating 5/5), and The Dark Knight (my rating 5/5). If you do see it before the viewing of these films, then your an idiot and stupid.  More

Yeh perhaps fun wasn't the right word but if its all doom and gloom it kinda impinges on how entertaining the film is. From the trailers it feels a little depressing. Im hoping its not gna be like that  More
