TDK has stopped being a movie where I see what's next. Actually, since I tend to spoil myself before every movie I watch, that's not the point of watching any movie for me. Seeing a movie tends to be an experience, seeing how a story is constructed. I particularly love doing this with Nolan films because he constructs them so thoughtfully, yet effortlessly. TDK is the first movie from Nolan and Co. that plays linearly, so I wasn't sure how they would handle it. Turns out it was fine, nay, arguably his best film.
Here's my problem with this, who honestly expects a film to still be suspenseful when they've seen it already? Am I missing somethng here? TDK stopped being 'suspenseful' after the credits rolled on my first viewing. There can't really be suspense if you know what's going to happen.

I agree on Nolan, he's truly one of the best. So far I haven't seen a film from him that's dissapointed. Why I'm looking forward to that sci-fi flick he's working on, even if it pushes back B3 a bit.

So far this quest is a breeze. I've already killed a dead monster, what's next? We're going to open an unlocked door? Rescue a princess from herself?
