Gotham Knight is one of the animated Batman movies I do like. I'm not raving about the story but the animation was beautiful. It was also inspired and offered interesting interpretations of Batman.

Problem with any animated serious Batman movie is when Kevin Conroy is not doing the voice, it sounds off. I love Bruce Greenwood's voice in Under the Red Hood (he also voices him in Young Justice), but everytime I hear another voice it feels off.

Kevin Conroy has sort of immortilized himself as THE voice for animated Batman, that everytime I hear someone else voicing him it feels lackluster. Of course this doesn't count Brave and the Bold, that batman voice was excellent for that show.

The best animated film of Batman and superhero genre in general? Mask of The Phantasm. It is character driven, perfect tone, and a great plot. Sure there is a twist to who Phantasm is, but it does not hurt a repeated viewing much like the Empire Strikes Back twist does not get hurt knowing the first viewing's "wow". Something that Hish failed to comprehend when being adapted.

I also love Subzero. It highlights my favorite characters Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, and Mr. Freeze. I wish Barbara Gordon was given more than a thirty second outing to stop a mugging and that was it in costume. That is my biggest problem with the film itself which is small scale. It had what should have been the end of Mr. Freeze's story that was ruined after this third chapter. It showed that there can be a serious story with a happy ending.

I doubt that these two animated films will ever be topped.

I've enjoyed Jason O'Mara's Batman in the shared universe DC Animated movies. No one will ever be able to match Conroy, but I find O'Mara to be good.
