You're right about this. But just like jumping from rooftops is ambitious, it doesn't always mean you're gonna have a soft landing

If anything makes Batman and TDK superior, it would be their character work more than their stories, IMO.
Yes for '89. The character work in TDK is superb, don't get me wrong (the best in ANY Batman film, I think) but the plot is also just as superb, I think. Whereas in '89 the story is serviceable, but it feels more like an excuse to get the various characters interacting with each other.
