A Typical Reaction To A Chris Nolan Movie

The Dark Knight Rises is out and while not breaking records, it’s been fairly well received by critics.

And the above comic pretty much nails down a typical reaction to a Chris Nolan movie. I’m just about ready to go watch it a second time, despite the bunch of holes I punched right through its logic within a couple hours of leaving the theatre.
