Top 10 Reasons Why Tim Burton Made Better Batman Movies Than Christopher Nolan

I like Tim Burton's Batman better than Christopher Nolan's. I do like Batman Begins and The Dark Knight but I don't like The Dark Knight Rises. Here's why.
The Top Ten
1 Better Stories

None of the batman movies or any other superheroes movies are close to the dark knight

I hope you realise that Tim Burton only directed Batman and Batman Returns. Batman Forever and Batman and Robin were directed by Joel Schumacher.

Tim Burtons original Batman was a good movie. The sequel was really melodramatic and overly dark and cheesy. Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises are all masterpieces

The Dark Knight is better than both of Burton's films. However, Burton's two films are better than Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises in my opinion.

2 Two-Face is Not as Scary Looking

Tommy Lee-Jones as Two-Face was awful and Two Face looks amazing in The Dark Knight. The CGI on his face was amazing.

Sorry, but Tommy Lee Jones Two-Face was just stupid and looked like he had makeup on (which he did)

3 Better Plot

No. Just definitely not.

4 More Villains

Sometimes more isn't always better...

More doesn't equal bettter

The Joker, Two-Face, Bane, Ra's Al Ghūl, Scarecrow, Victor Zsasz, The League of Shadows, Carmine Falcone, Sal Maroni, Joe Chill, Talia Al Ghūl... need I say more?

5 Better Batsuits

As long as doesn't have bat-nipples then I can enjoy the costume designs

ALL of the Batsuits from Burtons films were useless. He couldn't move and Batman is supposed to be a ninja. - HarryPotter12

Two words: Bat-Nipples - Brobusky

I don't think so. - zxm

6 More Interesting

Oh yeah, that toy commercial they call 'Batman and Robin' was WAY more interesting than one of the greatest comic book movies of all time. (The Dark Knight)

Nolans movies were stuffed full of social commentary and looking into the dark side of Justice and that there are always people who "just want to watch the world burn."

With the exception of Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, Burton's Batman is interesting.

7 More Entertaining

Batman Returns is too word to be entertaining - HarryPotter12

8 Batman Looks More Badass

I like Keaton. Though Kilmer is the worst, Clooney sucks too. But Bale just sounds off to me, because he sounds like he had throat cancer. I'm sorry. Not saying Bale is horrible, I mean I love Bale, he's part of my top 5 Batman actors, but I'm just curious.

If I saw Keaton's Batman in an alley I would laugh.
If I saw Bale's Batman in an alley I would freak out

9 Gotham City Looks Better

To be fair this is a valid reason. Burtons Gotham City with modern CGI would look amazing - HarryPotter12

This is the only one I agree on. - Brobusky

10 Darker Themes

The Dark Knight Trilogy was way darker and more complex than any of Burton movies.

The Contenders
11 Better Batmobiles

The Schumacher Batmobile looks like a giant penis for crying out loud!

I liked the tumbler version better.

The Tumbler can jump across roofs

12 More Comedy

Which is the reason why I hate Burton movies

13 The Theme Song

OBVIOUSLY YES! Danny Elfman is a perfect composer for Batman. Not only that, but he did composed the 2017 Justice League. NO KIDDING! - asantalo
