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.
