Re: Anyone prefer Iron Man over Dark Knight?
Now that more time has passed, my opinion on these movies are almost neck and neck. I still LOVE the both of them, but I love them for very different reasons.
TDK is a fantastic movie, but I can't watch it anytime. I have to be really in the mood for it, which isn't often. Iron Man, however, I can watch anytime! Iron Man is definitely the more "popcorn flicky" of the two, but that doesn't mean it's not a great movie. I'm going to say that TDK ranks higher, but not by much.
It's funny, because I think that TDK and Iron Man, while different films, are very comparable at times. The biggest similarity is the importance of a good cast. I believe that TDK wouldn't be as great without Heath Ledger, and I believe that Iron Man wouldn't be as great without Robert Downey Jr. Both of these movies are proof how casting can make all the difference in the world, no matter what kind of story you have.
