In honor of the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, I decided to make my own top 5 Batman films. I hope you comment after reading my list.
5. Batman: Mask of the Phantasom (1993)
Yes it came out in theaters so this one makes my list. I think it an unappreciated Batman movie. It’s a simple story that doesn’t drag.
4. Batman Returns (1992)
Tim Burton’s darker sequel to Batman. Danny Devito as The Penguin is fun. Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman is perfect.
3. Batman Begins (2005)
Nolan brought the movie franchise back to life with a modern take of the cape crusader as an origin story. Every movie in the trilogy, is an assemble except the miss casting of Katie Holmes.
2. Batman (1989)
Tim Burton’s first film. The franchise got darker in Barman Returns but it’s the cast, acting, and the music that makes it great.
1. The Dark Knight (2008)
Nolan’s continuation of the war over Gotham. What really made it was Heath Ledger’s performance but every performance makes the whole story compelling.
