Default Re: Nolan wasnt any more "faithful" then Tim Burton

It annoys me when fans are lenient with Nolan's departures from the comics but not Burton's. I mean, if you simply find the Nolan movies to be better made, that's fine, but saying they're faithful is a stretch. There was so much "reimagining" going on in the name of realism that some characters were barely recognizable if not for their names. How is Ra's Al Ghul, who is not portrayed as an extreme environmentalist or immortal any more accurate than Devito's Penguin? There's just something about people's sudden open-mindedness after the years of merciless bashing against the Burton movies that really pisses me off.
