Re: The Joker (The Dark Knight) vs. Bane (TDKR)
There was a lot of CGI enhancements (that's quite noticeable) in Begins though, but I have a huge appreciation for built sets especially the labor that goes into making them. So as far as the city goes from the Nolan films, I'll always prefer Begins.
It's something building from scratch as opposed to going out to some location that everyone knows to shoot. I still can't believe how clever the Pinewood Studios Gotham City from the first Batman was. There's something really cool about the actual built set with your own locations, plus large scaled models and matte paintings. The work that goes into that old school way of film making is enormous.
