I could so argue against that. While they are entertaining films and great stories as well, few people realize that Nolan is not really taking too many things from source material. A few things from Killing Joke or Batman annual #14 or MAN WHO FALLS or otherwise are only starting points. He is adapting general conceptions about characters for his own agenda.

Hate to beat a dead horse, but stylistically Batman 89 was a better Batman film.

Am I the only one who thinks Nolan was a bit cerebral in his approach to TDK?

Batman Begins tops TDK by a mile because the film was juggling too many things. There were about 20 minutes I would have cut from the film
