          I prefer Burton's but it's hard to compare the two because they are such different beasts. It could be a biased thing because it's my childhood batman

              The Dark Knight Rises couldn't wow me like Nolan's second Batman film did.

                I disagree to me it's the other way around

                  Nolan's trilogy is probably the best film presentation we'll get of Batman. Burton's movie(s) set up the character's importance in the mainstream.

                  That being said, neither is trying to be even close to the comics.

                      I didn't like Burton's Batman movies. For one thing, the Joker doesn't kill Bruce's parents. Also, Micheal Keaton wasn't that good of a Batman.

                        Yeah, he did. Only it was BEFORE he became The Joker.

                          Not in the comics. Joe Chill does. Batman Begins got that right.

                                I'd probably have to go with Burton's Batman films. Batman and Batman Returns are two of my favorite movies. I'm sure in in the minority, but I didn't enjoy any of Nolan's Batman films outside of TDKR.

                                  What a shocker

                                    Well, I have seen both Tim Burton's and Christopher Nolan's interpretations of Batman, but I prefer Nolan's.

                                    Speaking of Chris Nolan's second Batman movie, The Dark Knight (2008), in my opinion, it is possibly alongside Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and The Godfather Part II (1974) as one of the three REALLY GREAT movie sequels in the annals of Hollywood filmmaking.
