    I've seen people place TDKR under Batman & Robin....Granted, everyone's entitled to their own opinions but.....

    Updated list, not including animated films:

    Batman Begins
    Batman v Superman
    The Dark Knight
    Batman
    The Dark Knight Rises
    Batman Returns
    Batman Forever


    The rest I wouldn't really try to lump into the same category, so it feels a little mean to compare them.

    Batman '89 - 10
    The Dark Knight - 10
    Batman Begins - 7
    The Dark Knight Rises - 7
    Batman Returns - 6
    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm - 6
    Batman Forever - 4
    Batman & Robin - 1

    Batman '66 - ? I don't know how to rate this one, as it's a unique piece. As a movie, probably not very well written/made, but who could deny its (accidental?) genius.

    1. The Dark Knight 10/10
    2. Batman Begins 9/10
    3. The Dark Knight Rises 8.5/10
    4. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice 8/10
    5. Batman (1989) 7.5/10
    6. Batman Returns 7.5/10
    7. Batman Forever 5.5/10 (a 6 can be argued)
    8. Batman and Robin 3/10

    Overall, all solid films and haven't seen the 66 one. Forever is average but i might watch it again in the future.
