Would The Dark Knight Returns count? EDIT: Nvm, just saw the poll.

That would be #1 for me. Red Hood, Wonder Woman and Justice League: Doom are also up there as my favorites.

DKR counts. Any post Timm-Verse DC film that went to DVD counts.

Under the Red Hood for me, asthetic, action, music, characterisation, relating to source material, it's a solid film in it's own right.

I can't decide. Wonder Woman is very good and my favorite origin for pre-52.
I really love Crisis On Two Earths mainly for James Woods as Owlman, he stole the show. And the main theme is a blast to listen to.
TDKR is great and follows the material well.
Under The Red Hood is good BUT not my #1 like it is for most people.

I will accept any of these four as an answer (and I own ALL of them on Blu Ray):
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
Justice League: Doom
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Edition
Batman: Under the Red Hood

Mask of the Phantasm is still the best comic movie of any sort, though.

My top three are The Dark Knight Returns, Under the Red Hood, and Wonder Woman (I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome that was). I voted for DKR because it brilliantly and loyally adapted one of the biggest and most iconic Batman stories ever.

For me, it is a toss up between Wonder Woman, Justice League War, Justice League Doom and Superman/Batman Apokalypse. Though, if it counts as a film, I very much enjoy all of the DC Showcase shorts. I feel that their short length forced the story writers to really get to the essence of what makes a narrative interesting, resulting in some very sharp stories and strong interpretations of the characters/source material.

No Return of the Joker or Mask of the Phantasm? Then I'll have to go with All-Star Superman.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is my favourite, I love alternate world, time travel, future stuff more than any other and they nailed it.

It's closely followed by the Dark Knight Returns (both parts) though.

But tbh I've at least liked them all, only Gotham a Knights, Emersld a Knights and Son of Batman I would say we're boring but I still thought they were OK.

Those aren't DC Universe Animated Original Movies, they're movies set within the continuity of the DC Animated Universe.

I agree they're both top tier, though. I'd give anything for another long running Bruce Timm show.

I'm surprised at all the love JL: Doom gets--I always thought it was a bit bland. Not bad, but only serviceable.

Voice cast is great obviously, as is the animation (and style), but the storyline falls flat.

Crisis on Infinite Earths was awesome--loved the parallel earth angle and James Woods as Owl Man was a great villain (as was Gina Torres as Super Woman).

"Original"? Aren't the lot of them page by frame translations of certain comics? I guess the occasional bastardizations are what is referred to as original?

Wonder Woman. Such an excellent movie, its the perfect template for the live action film. Also, am I the only one that had an absolute blast with Justice League War? That movie was so so much fun imo. Highly rewatchable

The Dark Knight Returns Part ONE is the best... not so keen on Part two tho, might need to watch it again...

Wonder Woman and JL War are great... but the action scenes tend to drag on forever and ever

Really tough -

Loved under the red hood,

loved wonderwoman,

loved the dark knight returns,

loved superman vs the elite too.


Gave it to TDKR p1 and p2, score, animation, everything seemed to be on point, and theirs a couple scenes that really give me goosebumps.

Wonder Woman made the character accessible, likeable, and did so in a tasteful way. I've never really felt particularly interested in Wonder Woman aside from her role in Justice League stories, but that movie managed to pique my interest a little more into exploring some of her comics.
