TDK was good because of Leger's Joker, but outside of that, the film dragged through some dull spots and had mediocre fight scenes. It is still a good movie, but as a livelong Batman fan, the Burton Batman fans still stand tall as the defining live action renditions of the character. They had their flaws, but did a much better job capturing the tone and style of the comics than Nolan's ultra realism approach did.
TWS is an amazing film, and I liked it so much it has made me a dedicated Captain America fan making his way through Ed Brubaker's run right now.
Incorrect,Burtons movies had Burtons tone,a good deal of his movies have the same tone(weird fantasy),the fact this tone was later incorporated via TAS doesn't mean that Burton got the tone of Batman before the 1989 film correct,Burton created his own tone that became a part of Batman's history. The tone of Post Crisis Batman stories leading up to the 1989 movie was closer to Nolan's approach(Year:one,Prey,Venom).
