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.
Eh, all TDK was was Joker causing havock and Batman reacting to it. It was a pretty standard plot structure.

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