I'm not a fan of Nolan's batman movies. They feel hollow, focusing too much of their energies on "gritty realness" than on capturing the spirit of the material. It's something that Nolan does a better job of overcoming with a number of his other films (Inception, Prestige) but it has been something that seems to plague his career. While I find his films watchable, I don't find them all that enjoyable.

Burton, meanwhile, created a movie that was certainly a good deal less "real," but was a far better experience. By the same token, it seems Burton often falls too far the other way. His films are rich experiences, but often with too many unnecessary calories that leave you unfulfilled. Still, when he's on his game, I favor his work over Nolan's.
