So, the blu-ray has been sitting on my shelf for over a month now and I'm finally feeling the realization that this series has ended. For so many years I watched Begins and TDK and wondered where the story would go next, always knowing that someday I'd see it. But now it's all over. No more Bale growl. No more Tumblr. No more tangerines.
These movies bookmark my teenage years and I'll always remember them for that. As well as for everything that makes them great, every little thing that irks me and every ridiculous high and miserable low before and after their releases. It's been a ride that lasted almost a decade, and what a ride it's been.
