The Dark Knight Trilogy

Dunkirk was just released by the masterful Christopher Nolan, so why not revisit one of the best trilogies in recent years in his brilliant superhero epic!

An action scene that just quickly cuts and doesn’t really showing anything

Someone says “Fear”


The Dark Knight:


An intricate plan by the Joker

Harvey flips his coin

Something blows up

The Joker laughs

For that scene with the magic bullet that makes no sense finish your drink

The pacing is kind of a mess

Someone mentions the events of the first two films

An allusion to “A Tale of Two Cites”
