  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★

    The editing at times was a bit choppy. The narrative at the beginning was a bit sticky and difficult to get into.
    But my god, it's got enough plot twists to keep me satisfied for the next three years.

    ★★★★

    It’s the Ellen DeGeneres X Woody fanfic we didn’t want, but it was the one we needed.

    ★★★★
