    TDKR continues to grow on me, but dammit, BB is near flawless up until the Ra's reveal, IMO. But even with it's few flaws, I never find myself asking for more within the story; which I do with TDKR.

    BB is still the solid number two for me.

    Rises. It just brings so much more to the table for me.

    But to be fair, Rises and Begins are awesome companion pieces. Rises made me appreciate Begins even more.

    I figured you'd go with Rises. I think objectively it just might be better than BB. TDKR is definitely a grower though. I find myself wanting to watch the film a lot, actually.

    Batman Begins. Its the only installment that actually makes me excited to see Batman on screen (as opposed to villains and supporting cast).

    And I don't think there is any way to change it. But don't worry, no way TDKR wins this.

    I rate both the same but TDKR was better. It had better action and dialogue.

    After yesterday's marathon, TDKR is still tops for me. I love the parallels between Bruce and Bane and the revolution. BB is a close second. Ra's is very compelling, but the microwave emitter is the weak link.

    The Dark Knight Rises

    Batman Begins is a close third to it though.

    Having rewatched both recently, BB being the first time in a year, I can safely say it is TDKR. It may have flaws, but it leaves so much more to chew on in terms of story, themes, and characters beyond Bruce Wayne. Bruce's best movie is BB, but it is so formulaic in comparison to the sequels. TDKR is unlike any other superhero movie ever made and for that I am thankful. Plus characters like BAne and Selina Kyle just put Rachel Dawes, Scarecrow, etc. to shame. And TDKR has a great third act.

    So that is my vote.

    Sometimes i think BB edges out TDK. Rises brings the best of both movies , so i'll go for it.

    For as much work they seemed to had put in that video it ended up being painfully unfunny. Also you can't post that hear.

    Watch out guys, TDKR is objectively the weakest in the trilogy. It will go down in flames. :o

    I think BB will eventually win this poll. But it will be close. However, I do think the GA probably liked TDKR more because it is more "epic". I love both movies though. :D

    @ Ms. Marvel.... totally agreed. Weakest script of all 3 imho. Too many holes and an over-reliance on "film logic" where the first 2 did their darndest to stay grounded in reality.

    Dude, I wasn't ;P It's the weak link in a trilogy of strong entries, but that's just my 2 cents.
