Default Best visuals of the Nolan Trilogy?

I think TDK and TDKR are better movies, but I like the use of giant sets and the tan color grading over the blue filters in the sequels.

Anyone agree?

I like the visuals in each for their respective differences. The sepia tone, the rainy claustrophobia of Begins; the metropolitan blue tones of Knight; and the expansive, layered snowy grays in Rises. They are each distinct, but I think when you put them all together you get a holistic view of the entire city as the story progresses and changes it. Nolan's Gotham is said to be massive after all.

Well said, BrotherJack.

It really is a tossup as far as visuals go. Honestly, I can't choose between the two Knight films. Those IMAX cameras, mang.

Yeah, Brother Jack is correct as TDKR doesn't really have the dominant blue tones of TDK, but more of the snowy grey thing going on and more contrast with brighter whites. It does also borrow from the previous two films too- as you do get some of that blue from The Bat's lights, and you get the warmer tones too with all the stuff in the pit out in the desert. I would say TDKR has the richest visual palette. It's the best looking Blu-ray of the bunch by far, due to the amount of IMAX footage and the fact that it's a proper transfer. However, a new transfer of TDK might make it a tighter race. But I'm just going on the versions of the movies that my eyes are most used to at this point.

Mind you, I love the visuals of BB and TDK too. Both films need/deserve better transfers than what we've got currently.

Also, I really do wish for future releases they would have an option to have TDK/R maintain the same aspect ratio throughout, like they do on the DVDs.

TDKR is often lit like a black and white movie. Quite intentionally. I mean, you can sap the color off of the Bane vs Batman showdown and it can still look great because of all the overhead, harsh lighting.

I think was one is the best of the trilogy by far and the visuals are one of many reasons why.

Yeah. Batman Begins was such an awesome starting point, kinda realistic but still hinting at the classic comic book world lurking out there and waiting to break out like Mount Vesuvius. Instead we got this plain and boring "The Dark Knight" stuff. Actually, BB feels like an entirely different universe to me.
