A year ago o July 20th I saw one of my most hyped up movies: The Dark Knight Rises
The conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy or – as it is now know – the Dark Knight Trilogy.
Only a year?

After some initial uncertainties with The Dark Knight Rises as a final installment I went back to rewatch the trilogy and see it as a whole. And the more I thought about it, the more all the pieces fit together.

Many problems I had with the plot – especially the idea of legacy – were because I was expecting  a different take on Batman but it is undeniably clear that Christopher Nolan has had a vision for a story and never compromised. We can agree and disagree but it is truly a sign of a storyteller expressing his vision of a character.

And because of this Nolan’s trilogy is the measure stick for superhero trilogies and movie trilogies in general. And it will probably remain for quite some time.

To celebrate a fantastic and unique run for 7 years in the theaters I listed 3 moments from the 3 movies – as well as a special mention – to highlight why I think that this trilogy stands tall above most blockbusters

The final piece of Christopher Nolan’s ambitious Batman trilogy has arrived. On friday I have watched the movie in glorious IMAX and I had to let it settle a little before making a review. Now I am pretty sure that right now no one wants to hear story details so this review will be spoiler free.

Much more, this is less a review than some advice to prepare when going into the cinema:

Like the Star Wars Holiday special the Goddamn Batman has a past that is not entirely clean. And like the Star Wars Holiday special he was forced to do things he regrets now. No, I am not talking about the 60s series – that one is a piece of art in itself – I am talking of course about Batman and Robin a movie that made less sense than the Adam West series.

Even though we have had a lot of photos and exposure of The Dark Knight Rises most of it were set videos and nothing official from Warner Brothers. This has now changed as the marketing for TDKR has kicked in full gear.

Blimey, one week in England and suddenly everything exciting happens. I am a little late on with basically everything, so here just a collection of highlights that I missed:
