Default Re: TDKR SPOILERS (read at your own risk) - Part 5

TDKR is a realistic, character piece about a man who sacrifices everything for the people around him and overcoming his own personal, mental anguish while defeating forces of HUMANITY which threaten to break society at it's core.

Both are incredible movies with incredible takes on what it means to be a superhero. They are both near perfect films, but very different in approach. When you say one is better than the other, you are not looking at the movies objectively. You are expressing opinion. Don't express opinion as fact: that is bothersome to many.

Of course, all of this is just my humble opinion. Some people may not be able to see in these movies what I have, so they will mean different things to different people.
I agree completely.

TDKR actually made me appreciate TA even more due to the complimentary contrast it creates.

It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
