    Hey guys just a quick question.

    I haven't watched any of the Animated Batman movies at all... I know, I know I'm an idiot.

    So anyway I am thinking of starting and was wanting your opinion on where is a good place to start?

    Any recommendations?

    Phantasm, for me, is the be all end all with the animated batman movies...but if you need others check out

    Return of the Joker
    Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero
    Under the Red Hood
    Batman Year One
    The Dark Knight Returns (pt 1 and 2)

    Just sat down to watch Phantasm now. So far so good.

    Which one do you think next from your great list.

    Ok so I have now watched Phantasm and Under The Red Hood.

    Both really good.

    The Dark Knight Returns will be next in my list. Tomorrow probably.

    I'd say all of the following were pretty righteous:

    Mask of the Phantasm
    Under the Red Hood
    Year One
    The Dark Knight Returns (pt 1 and 2)

    Have fun!

    Oh and once you get past Batman solo movies I loved Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and Justice League: Doom.

    Along with al of the others mentioned, I would also recommend "Batman Beyond : The Return of the Joker"
    I don't know if you can still get the original version , but just make sure you get the uncensored /unedited one.

    Mask of the Phantasm is the standout. Return of the Joker is second for me. And yes, definitely get the legit, uncensored version. I also really enjoy the three episodes which they joined to create the World's Finest animated movie.

    With the adaptions, TDK Returns is my pick. Really enjoyed it. UTRD is also a winner. I didn't really warm to the animated Year One.

    Thanks for the help guys. I am going to grab The Dark Knight returns today so will be watching that tonight.

    Then i'll probably have to wait before getting any more.


    AnneFan just to clarify was that three part called Worlds Finest?

    In order of preference...

    Mask of the Phantasm
    Dark Knight Returns Parts I & II
    Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
    Batman Year one
    Under the Red Hood

    Year One is also a good movie but I hate Ben McKenzie's Bruce/Batman voice. Bryan Cranston's voice as Gordon is just excellent. What a genius idea.

    Really, all of the animated Batman movies are fantastic. Well, aside from Mystery of the Batwoman, which I did enjoy, but felt underwhelming compared to the others.
