It's Kate Bigelow. She's loved.
And nah Nolan's Batman isn't that good. Rises is ok, but long by like 20-30 minutes, and there are some glaring WTF moments in that thing. Batman dodging missiles, the same missiles!!!!!, for like 20 minutes is hilariously bad. The ending is pure lolwtf. The Dark Knight is really the only great one and that's mostly because of Heath Ledger.
Hardy was awesome; acting with just your eyes and a goofy voice is impressive. JGL was the best thing and most compelling character in it. Hathaway is good as Catwoman but she totally didn't need to be in it. Nolan justifies her existence in the film by having her out of the blue kill Bane. I also wonder in his awful ability to portray comedy/comedic moment if he was going for a Raiders of the Lost Ark bit there. Probably not. I hope he didn't. And wtf Alfred.
If The Dark Knight didn't have Ledger's Joker, I think I'd put Burton's two Batman flicks above Nolan's.
