Dear God, you must be joking...
How many movies on Blu-ray have you seen? I believe The Dark Knight looked good (good, not fantastic) in 2008, especially for someone who didn't know what EE, DNR and ringing are, but come on! It's 2013, we have so many STUNNING releases to compare to. I don't understand how you can watch something as unappealing as TDK or horribly soft and flat like TDKR and not only say it's fantastic, but that the difference in quality between IMAX and regular scenes is very small. Something is not right here, your eyes, your TV, I don't know.

I wouldn't be so sure. Iron Man 3 looked almost like TDK, with many extremely horrible DNR'd shots and EE, and Fast & Furious 6 was too soft, with some ugly waxy faces.
