Good thread. My personal favorites:

1. The Dark Knight
2. Batman Begins
3. Mask of the Phantasm
4. The Dark Knight Rises
5. Batman Returns
6. Batman
7. Batman Forever
8. Batman: The Movie
9. Batman & Robin

I actually had a pretty tough time deciding if I liked TDKR or Returns more.

1 - The Dark Knight/Batman Begins
2 - The Dark Knight Rises
3 - Mask of the Phantasm
4 - Batman Returns
5 - Batman (1989)
6 - Chase Me
7 - Under the Red Hood
8 - Return of the Joker
9 - Year One
10 - The Dark Knight Returns
11 - Gotham Knight
12 - SubZero
13 - Batman Forever
14 - Batman & Robin

Fingers crossed for The Long Halloween and The Killing Joke winding up as animated films soon. I'm sure they'll be high on the list. Wouldn't mind Court/City of Owls, Haunted Knight, or Hush/Heart of Hush either.

In regard to #1, it's tough for me to play favorites between BB and TDK, they both have equal pros and cons. Something is missing from each of them that the other completes.

So in the end I always wind up tying them. I suppose it depends on what kind of movie I'm feeling in the moment, but they both capture different approaches to Batman extremely well.

^ I had to see how you ranked the films because you seem like you have a love/hate thing going on with TDKR from your posts, but nice to see you have it only right under TDK and BB.

Oh for sure. haha

I have my nitpicks with Rises (some of which I'm decided on, some of which I'm still wrestling with), but I certainly am not looking to deny it of it's merits. There are a lot of things it does very right.

I'm having a scroll back through the thread right now. Did you do a list?

2. The Dark Knight Rises
3. Batman Begins
4. Batman (1989)
5. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
6. The Dark Knight Returns

8. Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker
9. Batman: Under the Red Hood
10. Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero
11. Batman (1966)
12. Batman & Robin
13. Batman Forever
14. Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman

I think I saw it on a total fluke man, ha! About a week and a half ago, Amazon made it available for download. The next day, they took it down and it's stayed down. I don't know if it was some sort of mistake or what, but it was legally available for download for exactly 1 day and I was lucky enough to be being attention during this very short window.

Trust me though, it is really epic and completely knocks it out of the park. I think anyone who enjoyed Part 1 is in for a real treat.

If we're including animations the Dark Knight Returns parts 1 and 2 are the best Batman anything I've ever seen

Oops! I totally forgot to list it. I'd probably put it under Return of the Joker at number 10, knocking everything else below it to 12-15.

Whoooa somehow in the process of making my list, I shifted things around and had TDK Returns at the bottom.

Mistake corrected! How embarrassing.

Amen to that!
I said this to my mate (who is a huge Batman fan) and my cousin just the other day.

I waited for part 2 to be released before I watched Part 1, watched both back-to-back with my Dad.

Seriously, in my honest opinion, better than the Nolan trilogy.
Best Batman anything is right
