Re: Rank the Bat-Films.....
1. The Dark Knight Rises. I love endings, and it was so well done. Had everything you could want.
2. The Dark Knight. Broke the superhero mold even more than Batman Begins did. Acting was top-notch and the climax was stunning.
3. Batman Begins. Set the latter two up. Feels a bit like a prequel now, but it redefined comic book movies and stunned audiences into taking Batman seriously again.
4. Batman (1989). Still a fun movie, but it pales in comparison to the Nolan films. It's a "different" movie but Keaton is still a great Batman.
5. Batman Return. It's a little wacky, and the Burtonesque additions get old fast, but it's still got a great creepy atmosphere.
6. Batman (1966). Not as fun once you're an adult, but I still love the "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb" bit.
7. Batman Forever. Could have been good. Kilmer was a great Bruce Wayne. O'Donnell was fine as Robin. But Jim Carey and Tommy Lee Jones absolutely butcher this movie.
1000. Batman and Robin. Still the worst movie I've ever seen, next to Jason X.
