I don't understand.
In a year when such master pieces as High School Musical 3
and Star Wars: The Clone Wars
came out why are we talking about rubbish like Wall E and TDK?
I myself place Wall E as my favorite film from last year over TDK for several reasons some being that I didn't think TDK was perfect (and yes I thought Heath Ledger and Christopher Nolan were awesome).
To me Batman Begins is still better than TDK. The addition of Heath Ledger's Joker was really (, really, really
) awesome yes, but it didn't make up for some of the other issues.
I felt that TDK had to little of the overall Batman feeling from the first. No Batcave, very few shots of the Batsignal, and a very lost cause feeling over the whole Gotham situation. I know Nolan and Co. have stated that they made the sequel with Empire Strikes Back as inspiration, but for one Empire has much more charm than TDK and secondly I'm also one of the guys who likes A New Hope marginally better. Also I thought the re-watch factor of TDK was low. Some scene were simply awesome (like the interrogation of Joker by Batman, or the bank heist) but others were a bit disappointing (like the scenes with Bruce and Rachel which didn't make me care enough about SPOILER her death
Wall E was really special. I haven't cared as much for characters in a film in a long while. The storytelling and the score are really amazing. The movie is just very touching in several ways. When I saw it the first time I didn't really care about the humans when I saw them at first as they were such a pale reflection of what we are now, but by the end I found myself liking the captain a lot. Also I really enjoyed the villain (even without having seen 2001) and the fact that it ended up being a captain vs his helm. There's just so much that can be said for Wall E, and I don't feel like writing a review, but in my opinion Wall E is better than TDK.

I use IMDB
for stuff like this. You can check when Pixar's next projects are here
or (as I often check) ILM's next (present and previous) projects here
