After all the hubub  of teasers and trailers for the final installments of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, I managed to never find an opportunity to see it in the cinema.

So I was delightfully pleased when it arrived in the post and sat down to immerse myself in the dark and haunting final chapter.   Even without the surround sound activated, the epic score from Hans Zimmer and the terrifying sound of Tom Hardy’s voice fill up the room.  And once the film is over – those last ten minutes that you don’t want to end – then, it’s time to move onto the special features.

The extras here cover Nolan’s more-is-more strategy when it comes to hundreds and thousands of extras, the secrets of destroying a city block, and piles more.

Here’s the full-list of specials you can look forward to.  They’re all great, but I must say, I won’t be appeased until we see the follow-up franchise.  And if you’ve seen the film, then you know what I mean…
