I love to say “I told you so!” (WARNING: The Dark Knight Rises Spoiler in links)

I finally got around to seeing The Dark Knight Rises the other night and at the end a feeling of extreme smugness and joy came over me. Now if you haven’t seen the movie, I wouldn’t recommend that you click on the links that will soon follow in this post, they contain information that will ruin the movie for you.

After the credits rolled on The Dark Knight Rises, I was happy to see my predictions had been extremely accurate. And to think, if only you would have been checking my site back in September and December of last year, you would have known the secrets well ahead of every body else.
