The Dark Knight Rises Movie Review

Director Christopher Nolan has done the impossible here. He has created and filmed a trilogy of films about a superhero, using almost ALL of the same actors and people originally involved, and he made them all good. Let me correct myself.

The Summer of “Meh” OR How I Learned To Shut My Brain Off and Enjoy “Transformers Dark of the Moon”

Long have I been considered “ultra” critical of movies. I refuse to watch anything starring Renee Zellweger or Ben Stiller, I openly mock people who enjoy the “Twilight” films and I gag any time someone mentions “Saw”.
