I used to like Batman as a kid and watching it again on my 30th birthday I gained a further appreciation of the movie and it's now my favourite Batman movie of all time. Michael Keaton is my favourite Batman, and Jack Nicholson made an awesome Joker.

Another childhood favourite. Great story and great villains. This was a big deal watching this as a kid given it was M rated. I'm surprised McDonald's promoted this movie.

The best Batman movie in the Dark Knight trilogy.

Votes: 1,558,319 | Gross: $448.14M
Most movies in a trilogy don't live up to the hype, but The Dark Knight Rises was a top movie.
6. Batman Forever (1995)
PG-13 | 121 min | Action, Adventure
Batman must battle former district attorney Harvey Dent, who is now Two-Face and Edward Nygma, The Riddler with help from an amorous psychologist and a young circus acrobat who becomes his sidekick, Robin.

Good but not great. I liked Val Kilmer as Batman and Chris O Donnell as Robin. Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones were far too camp as villains.
7. Batman: The Movie (1966)
PG | 105 min | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
The Dynamic Duo faces four supervillains who plan to hold the world for ransom with the help of a secret invention that instantly dehydrates people.
I liked this movie as a little kid. I even liked the TV show as a little kid. It's camp and very corny, but at least it's way better than Batman and Robin which I will sink the boot into below...
8. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
PG-13 | 152 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.
Votes: 655,789 | Gross: $330.36M
Like it or hate it, it's still enjoyable. Ben Affleck did well as the caped crusader but I don't necessarily rate him that high.
9. Justice League (2017)
PG-13 | 120 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his new-found ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
Votes: 418,806 | Gross: $229.02M
The movie was a disappointment. No wonder it didn't do too well at the box office and failed to live up to all the hype.
10. Batman & Robin (1997)
PG-13 | 125 min | Action, Sci-Fi
Batman and Robin try to keep their relationship together even as they must stop Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy from freezing Gotham City.
Votes: 238,555 | Gross: $107.33M
The worst Batman movie in history. The worst sequel in movie history. Also one of the worst movies in history. George Clooney did not make a good Batman. They could have chosen ANYONE but Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr Freeze. The entire screenplay was poor. The only redeeming feature was the Smashing Pumpkins song The end is the beginning is the end. I liked that song as a 13 year old.
