Batman in 2005's Batman Begins, but it wasn't until The Dark Knight, three years later, that the renaissance truly kicked into higher gear. The success translated into the videogame world, where after a number of average Batman games, Rocksteady Studios unveiled Batman: Arkham Asylum, combining the feel of Nolan's reboot with the history and lore of the comics. Much like what he accomplished with The Dark Knight, Batman: Arkham Asylum has raised the bar for everything Batman going forward.
Game adaptations very rarely make for good films. You get the occasional exception, but they're usually of the campy, absurd stripe (see Clue, Tron). And the bad ones are just deeply, unforgivably bad--like Mortal Kombat or Doom or BloodRayne. Turns out you can't just weakly imitate the thin plot of a popular game franchise with overpaid Hollywood actors on the big screen. Not only will critics smash your work into the ground, people will believe them. It's not a huge stretch of the imagination to buy that the Prince of Persia flick starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a Persian (???) is not very good. And while we all may have seen that original Pokemon movie back in our youth, it doesn't exactly hold up to critical analysis under further scrutiny.
