Re: Fear. Chaos. Pain. Vote for your favorite Nolan Batfilm!
I feel that, in time, I might change my mind, but The Dark Knight remains my favorite. I feel that, while Batman Begins was a great introduction and The Dark Knight Rises an epic ensemble finale with one of my favorite characters in the series (Catwoman), TDK remains the best written, most intense, and has that edge-of-your-seat quality that keeps you guessing the whole way. With BB and TDKR I predicted the whole movie in the first ten or fifteen minutes.
Plus, the Joker is a fantastic villain.
