If I were to rank the Batman movies, I would say:

Batman Begins - 9/10 (best cast of Batman, great director... loses half a point for Katie Holmes, but gains points for starting over the franchise since it was ruined in the last run.)

Batman - 8.5/10 (Batman is miscast as the sort of wimpy Michael Keaton, and Tim Burton doesn't read comic books and changes the story all around, but as a stand alone film, this is great stuff - Jack Nicholson steals the show... loses points for killing off the best villain)

Batman Returns - 7.5/10 (I have really mixed feelings about this one... I love the sexual tension between Catwoman and Batman; Michelle Pfeiffer's costume is amazing. Danny Devito is ok as the Penguin - the plot is interesting, the payoff suffers a little... they tease us with a cliffhanger end that never gets followed up on because Joel Schumaker sucks)

Batman Forever - 4/10 (Nicole Kidman was kind of hot in it; Chris O'Donell is the worst actor ever; Val Kilmer seems disinterested; Jim Carrey is borderline good/borderline annoying as the Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones is forgettable as Two-Face. The darkness and great plotline with Catwoman from the 2nd film is thrown away for camp! Boo! Schumaker couldn't make a worse film)

Batman and Robin - 1/10 (Oh wait, yes he can! Chris O'Donell is the worst actor ever, and so he is paired with the similarly talented Alicia Silverstone! Wait no! Arnold is the worst actor ever! Ugh, George Clooney is more disinterested than Val Kilmer and has openly admitted that this was all about the payday... and Batman had nipples - what's up with that?)

Holy cow... I hope you are either being sarcastic, or you're 10 years old...

Nick Cage has to be the worst actor of his generation... He's like an older version of Keanu Reeves...

If the only standard by which you judge a movie is the amount of blood they can pack into it, then Sin City was awesome.... Otherwise, it was just barely watchable.....

Hey, I'm not 10 years old and I liked National Treasure too, I mean it was no work of art but it was a good way to waste a couple of hours. My main beef was the puzzles were too easy and solved too quickly.

Nicolas Cage is a decent actor, I liked him in Raising Arizona a lot and he's had some other good movies, although not many recently. No one can compare to Keanu for terrible acting.

Nick Cage, much like Keanu Reeves plays the bumbling idiot to perfection because - well - he's a bumbling idiot.... That's why he was good in Raising Arizona.... Just like Keanu was mildly entertaining in Bill and Ted's.... But give either one of them the lead in an Action/Adventure flick, and you're asking for trouble....

Before someone asks: Yes, I liked the Matrix, but it had NOTHING to do with Keanu's acting prowess....

National Treasure was mildly entertaining in a mind-numbing sort of way, but to call it a GOOD movie is a real stretch.....

I agree and disagree with Plindsey...

Agreed that National Treasure was mainstream garbage.

I disagree about Nicolas Cage's acting - see Leaving Las Vegas

There's a reason the guy won the Oscar for best actor.

Playing a drunk is not terribly dissimilar from playing a bumbling idiot....

White Russian, anyone?

Kingdom of Heaven. Wasn't particularly impressed. It had it's moments though.

I thought Birdy was kind of underrated and Cage was pretty good, he wasn't a bumbling idiot in that one. I liked When Peggy Sue Got Married too and Cage was...well....OK, a bumbling idiot.
