The difference is these two movies are IN THE SAME SERIES!

TDKR was good, but a HUGE disappointment, simply because of Nolan and Goyer's laziness (it's more Goyer's fault that Nolan's, as he did the story for all three films). It was EMBARRASSINGLY lazy when you really think about it.
I don't think I'd call it embarrassingly lazy overall, but several parts of the script are very lazily written, and there is a lot of rehashing of old plot lines, and sloppy execution of others. But then there is some scenes that are very well written. It's jarring because you get glimpses of the potentially great movie we could have had on par with TDK or even BB.

It's definitely the weakest script of the trilogy, IMO.

Exactly.
