Favorite Animated Movies: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm vs. Batman: Under the Red Hood

Can you choose between these two superb movies?!

Batman has more than a few enjoyable animated features, but two tend to rise above the rest: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman: Under the Red Hood. 1993's Mask of the Phantasm is a compelling mystery and, despite the older release date, it most definitely stands the test of time and then some! Meanwhile, 2010's Under the Red Hood is an action-packed ride that's full of emotion.

Both movies need to be watched at least once by any Batman fan (you're doing yourself a major disservice if you don't watch them), but this week, we want you to compare and contrast the two projects. Do you prefer one over the other or do you love them equally? Do you think one story is better than the other? Perhaps a memorable twist or phenomenal action scene won you over? Or maybe the cast will help you make up your mind? Think it through and then go to the poll!

Look, we're well aware that both are excellent and this probably won't be one of the easiest decisions for some of you. Because of that, we feel obligated to point out there's no need to rush to a decision just yet. The poll will remain open until Friday morning (ET), so that should be more than enough time to give this choice a lot of thought or even watch both of these films again. Shortly after we lock the poll on Friday morning, we'll post an updated article with the poll's percentages and feature some of your posts. Yes, that means if you're going to vote, we strongly encourage you to speak your mind in the comments, too! So, which gripping movie will take the top spot, Viners?
