Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

What movie did you like more?

For me, this is a tough one to answer. They were both very good movies and made very well. Downey Jr. played an awesome job as Iron-Man, as did Christian Bale for Batman, and especially Heath Ledger playing the role as The Joker(amazing!!!!)

Action wise, to me I really liked Iron-Man's action scenes more. They were very neat and awesome. The Dark Knight had some good action scenes aswell, but Iron-Man just had more intense action.

I think overall wise, although I really liked both movies alot, I would say that I prefer The Dark Knight more. The mood and setting wasn't the typical "super hero going to save the day" kind of feel, which was different and unique to a marvel/DC comic movie. It had more of a darker tone to the movie, which what got my interest in the movie.

Dark Knight has my vote. What movie did you guys like more?

Discuss.

The Joker can be the sole reason to beat Iron Man.
I'm not saying Iron Man' bad. It's amazing. It's just Ledger's performance was that good.

The Joker was 75% amazing writing. The other 25% was Heath. I'm not being rude, but its true.

I see your point clearly. I take no offense, as I somewhat agree.
You know, the idea of this thread is reminding me of this series:

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

The Dark Knight of course, Iron Man was cool, but TDK was incredidble. it's really not fair to call it a comic-book film. It shown the great detective side of Batman.

I think TDK was for the grown-up fans of Batman, it really thew that fact in your face when the Joker showed off his "magic trick"

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

Both were incredibly amazing movies. But for me, who has a hard time picking favorites and bests between anything this just makes it hard! I tend to try and see what both the good and bad and judge them on that.

So, I loved Iron Man. It had some great action and it was also hilarious. It was just awsome.

The Dark Knight was a much darker. The acting was awsome aswell, which goes for Iron Man as well.

I wont choose, they are both great movies!

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

Iron Man was really really good and at the time after seeing it, I would say it was the best superhero movie yet. ....... then the Dark Knight came and totally blew it and everything else out of the water. Dark Knight wins hands down imo.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

This is like putting a Colt Peacemaker against a squirt gun - granted, the squirt gun alluded to here is more akin to a super soaker. . .

Either way, Spiderman 2 is a much more worthy cinematic advesary for the Dark Knight.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

this MUST be a joke.

Iron Man is not even within the same plane of awesomeness as the Dark Knight. questioning the Dark Knight's reign is folly.

Spider-Man 2 is one of the best for sure. I see it more like this: The Dark Knight > Spider-Man 2 & Batman Begins > Iron Man

SM2 & BB is a toss up, can't really tell which is better, but I love both. And if I add the original Superman in there, well, it becomes the top 5 the way I see it. I can't think of any other superhero flix but yeah.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

The Dark Night by a long shot, its one of my favorite movies, however and its a big however "the joker" made that movie for me, well its a good movie anyway but that performance of the joker just made it the movie it is in my opinion.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

Dark Knight was better. The only downside to DK was the damn last half an hour about Harvey Dent that no one cares about. They should have put all 2 face scenes in the next one(?) They should have ended Harvey Dent's story once the Joker was walking out of the hospital.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

Dark Knight was heaps better than Iron Man was.

Iron Man was awesome, for a more lighter entertainment style superhero movie, there were a few things though, that I found kinda weird. Like how it took Downey Jrs character (yeah I'm bad with names ) a million years or so to learn how to use the suit, but evil guy gets the prototype and has mastered every aspect of it.

Re: Iron Man or The Dark Knight?

Iron Man was a shallow, yet enjoyable summer movie. It's pretty much what you expect from a comicbook movie, but with a completely lame villain.

The Dark Knight goes above and beyond what you expect from comicbook movies. It's a movie about the characters, and the characters each have their own code that they live by. You are also presented with a deep moral in the film; should you do away with you code in order to stop someone who has no rules?

It's not just a story about The Joker and Batman, either. Jim Gordon was a great character, and of course there was Harvey Dent. Seeing them together was really something. They both want to stop the corrpution, but they have different ways to do it. Then seeing Harvey become Two-Face... the end really was intense.

Ironman is a complete joke compared to TDK. Comparing them is laughable.

You clearly didn't get the message that the film was leading up until the end.

It's like Metaknight vs Snake. Snake owns metaknight, Metaknight owns everyone else.

Equal.
