Christopher Nolan Retrospective

Inception

Today The Dark Knight Rises, the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s enormously successful Batman trilogy and the movie I have been waiting to see for months, finally opens in theaters.

This summer was no different, with highly anticipated continuations and reboots (including The Avengers in May, The Amazing Spider-Man this week and The Dark Knight Rises just around the corner) opening with great fanfare and big ticket sales. 

I have always adored superhero movies. I love the costumes and the sweet romances, the big plots and the action sequences. Mostly, I love the battle between good and evil, where the hero prevails.
