Anyone who's seen both films can HONESTLY say that TDKR is superior.
Both films have good points and both films have serious flaws. Bane was horrible IMO, but I found Sandman to be a compelling character. I'll agree with you on Venom, but Catwoman wasn't that interesting, at least not near as interesting as Michelle Pfeiffer's character.
I do give the edge to TDKR but not for the reasons you state. As far as a superior script, at least Spider-man 3 was intentionally corny in parts, I don't think Nolan wanted Bane to come off as some weird circus freak with a fast food drive through speaker for a voice.
Spider-man 3's problam was as I mentioned above, way too much going on that's not interconnected. TDKR had a solid plot line, but it's execution was sloppy. By far it was the worst of the Nolan trillogy, IMO.
