    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Since I seriously started getting into movies somewhere around 6 years ago this has been my most anticipated movie ever. The only way to describe how fantastic it is, is to simply say that it not only lived up to my expectations but it rocked them and surpassed them and waved hello the second go around said expectations.

    It would be impossible to get around to everything that is perfect here so I'll just mention a couple of standout things…
