My complaints still are pacing in the first part of film, too much Blake and not much Selina, especially in the second part. She was underutilized.

Nolan's worst and most flawed film in the last ten years. Very good start and a great third act, but what happens in the middle is barely as impressive.

that is not a logical complaint that is you being a Catwoman fanboy, Blake got more time because he is more important to the overall trilogy and the story that was being told.

I agree that it's Nolan's most flawed film. Way too much he was trying to integrate into the film and it felt sloppy and rushed. Although I do disagree with the start being very good...I thought it was all over the place for the most part of the film, I thought the 3rd act was the best although I had a lot of problems with it as well.

In my opinion, Following is the perfect example of why Nolan is so great and TDKR is a problem that Nolan has just begin to run into: With regards to Following, it was a no-budget film that had no-name actors yet was all about story and concept, and it is absolutely riveting, with a sensational climax. TDKR is a big budget film that has so much ambition, that it doesn't focus on Bruces' story as much as it should, instead attempting to incorporate new characters Bane, Miranda, John Blake, and Catwoman. I'm looking forward to Nolan's future work, and although I have nothing to base this off of, I have a hard time believing this is the film Nolan wanted to make considering his track record of tight story making, because this film is anything but tight.

What's so odd is...I've spoken to average everyday people, not movie lovers like ourselves, and I've heard a handful of people say that they didn't like TDK all that much, but liked this one moreso. I'm not really sure what that says, IMO it means they have bad taste in films, but I know a lot of people here prefer TDKR over TDK as well so, there you go.
