I saw Batman Begins right when it came out and liked it but have not watched it since, is Batman the Dark Knight better and should I watch Begins again before going to see the dark knight?
I love Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is simply awesome and even better than Batman Begins (the joker alone is enough reason to go and see this). It is also a lot more complex than Batman Begins, but I don't necessary think that you need to rewatch BB in order to understand The Dark Knight.
I really enjoyed it a lot. I would say it was actually one of Bale's weaker performances, but mainly just because Batman isn't given a lot of focus in this film - he has no real chance to shine. Instead, as pretty much any corner of the internet would tell you, Heath Ledger's Joker simply steals the show. Solid performances for everyone else as well.
I liked the Dark Knight better than the original because it had an even darker, more serious tone. It could have been a bit shorter, but I don't think you will be dissapointed by any means if you liked the original.
