The Dark Knight Trilogy
 
So, now that the Christopher Nolan Batman series is finally complete, which one would be your favorite? I know, many people like all of them, including me; however if you had to choose out of the three, which one would you pick?

The second one is the best, the third one is too reactionary (not that a rich guy who accidentally finds a tank in the basement of his megacompany and beats up petty criminals at night instead of, like his parents, actually caring during the day what his enterprise does has the potential to be anything but reactionary so it would be more precise to claim that the last movie just revealed the truth of Batman) and the first one is my favourite. I like Wayne's self-disciplining and it is also the movie in which Bale can shine the most. When he doesn't have to method act he is fairly mediocre.

I voted for The Dark Knight. The Joker character will go down as one of those iconic movie villains. I did enjoy all three, but the second one is my favorite.

I voted for The Dark Knight Rises. I was waiting to see how Batman would be able to redeem himself after being ridiculed from the city that thought he killed Harvey Dent. I love how the letter regarding the truth of Dent's actions were revealed without the consent of Gordon. I doubt that Gordon was ever going to read the letter. However, Batman did save the day and his reputation was saved. I also found Bane to be a better adversary to Batman than the Joker. I mean, don't get me wrong, I do like the Joker. However, Joker was a match for Batman mentally while Bane was the match for Batman physically.

I went for 'Batman Begins'.

For me, it's tighter, more focused and more enjoyable than either of 'The Dark Knight' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' and it feels much less flabby as well. It also lacks the sense of self-importance that crept in in the two sequels.

The more I think about 'Rises' the sloppier it seems to be.

I'm not going to lie, after watching Batman physically dominate everyone it was fun to see Bane dominate him.

I have to be honest, I didn't really feel anything during that first key fight between them. I know I was supposed to be feeling something when Bane and he first face off..............but I just didn't.

I enjoyed the Bane character, I know some felt the twist at the end weakened it but it didn't have that effect on me.
