Default Re: Best visuals of the Nolan Trilogy?

I love all three movies. The conclusion of Batman Begins definitely feels like a fork, where Nolan had the choice of either staying with the more fantasy tone of BB (albeit dialed back from Burton and Schumacher), or moving towards a gritter, more realistic one. I like what we got but would love to see how the trilogy would have progressed if Nolan had taken the other route.
