The scope of the threat in LOTR and ROTK was, however, much greater than TDKR.
So I feel both are epic in their own right, though my preference leans toward TDKR (admittedly, I am not a big LOTR fan in general. Nor am I a big Batman fan beyond the Nolan films and BR).
I was meaning the whole trilogy. It all takes place over just 1 year.
And I don't think Nolan's Batfilms(even the lone good one, BB) even begin to hold a candle to Jackson's LOTR series. But then I'm a big Tolkien fan and Batman has never appealed to me at all.
