My son, Nathan, asked me tonight about the various Batman movies. Was Batman '89 or The Dark Knight my favorite? Before I could answer, he threw in Batman '66 as an option. What about Rises and Returns? Well, I said, this calls for a list. So, here is my ranking of the various Batman films. I’m excluding all of the animated movies and the serials. I have not seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it will not be included either.
