5 stars for anything Batman TAS.
The opening theme song by Shirley Walker sounds like the choir is singing latin hymns..they are apparently singing staff names spelled backwards.

This is the first time I have ever heard someone say anything negative about Mark Hamill's work as the joker.

Mark Hamill is the best Joker ever.
YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH, SISKEL!

There hasn't been a bad Joker IMO. They're all different and they're all good. Hamill's seems to pay tribute to Romero's in terms of flamboyance but is smarter and more in control.
I wonder how Keaton would have done as Joker? He was Beetlejuice, after all.
I definitely place this one above Burton's. Live action superhero movies just age really badly for whatever reason.
would have been tough for Keaton to be Batman and the Joker.

My local paper dismissed Mask of the Phantasm with a two-sentence blurb amounting to "we didn't bother to review this. It's probably just a long action figure commercial anyway."
It seems this happened with a lot of papers: WB gave it next to no advertising, it was not screened for critics, and opened on Christmas Day, when no one was in the mood for a dark noir epic. All of which gave the impression that the studio was trying to bury a clunker.
Word is that the exact opposite was true: Warner didn't expect it to be so damn good, and gave it the shit treatment because they were afraid it would make their live action Batfilms look bad in comparison.

That production team had a better understanding of all the characters than many of the people who write the comics. Their "World's Finest" crossover was shit-hot.
