Firstly your not a mod and secondly it's not off topic really when people are saying where they rate it against the other films.

I had no idea Year One was so disliked.
As for Mask of the Phantasm (imho) it hasn't aged well.
By far the worst Batman DTV was Gothem Knights, I actually fell asleep a couple of times.

Want to see discussion on TDKR merits' not lists. The ranking idea is great, but should have it's own thread, believe you me' it will soon get boring to look at' if it ends up page after page.
And now' Man-bat, you have increased the lists.

Telling people to change the trajectory of the thread topic never helps. You have to change the subject yourself, and you're not.

I think I exhausted the momentary ranking comparisons, rather than fueled it. The discussion will likely soon move past ranking comparisons.

Yeah, I noticed they didn't go with first person narration, but they did keep many elements of the actual story in there.

You're not a mod, I don't see your problem with it, it's still in topic cause people are saying here they rank it.

Year One just kind of sat there on the screen... slavishly following the source material with no real thought or passion.

The one praise I'd give the movie is Bryan Cranston.

On the other hand, The Dark Knight Returns was not only a better movie but actually improved on the book itself. No mean feat. It was exciting, interesting, passionate and engaging. Everything Year One was not.

Ironically, in graphic novel form, I much prefer Year One to TDKR.

8. Batman: Gotham Knight
9. Batman: Mystery Of The Batwoman
10. The Batman/Superman Movie
