I dont know, I think TDKR was much more ambitious and its emotional beats and ending were much better handled. After the final battle of IM3, which was superior to the one in TDKR I will add, IM3 just sort of rushes to the end, were as TDKR ends perfectly, taking us through about 5 different emotions and giving us a truly satisfying ending.

IM3 just rushes through once the final battle was over, and it didnt take enough risks for me, TDKR took a good few and they mostly paid off.
