Iron Man dwells on war profiteering. The Matrix dwells on the fabric of reality and how society decieves people to keep them obedient slaves. Matrix +1
Iron Man has barely any memorable dialogue. The Matrix has dozens of great and meaningful dialogue. Matrix +1
Iron Man drags in scenes and is anti-climatic. The Matrix has perfect pacing and one of the best climaxes of recent memory. The Matrix +1
Iron Man was a hit but the Matrix was an international phenomena with a timeless subversive cyber-punk message. The Matrix +1
The Matrix = 5
Iron Man = 0
You could make a small argument that the first Matrix movie is better than the first Iron Man movie (I don't buy it) but overall, the Iron Man franchise is better than the Matrix franchise.
Iron Man 2 is tons better than Matrix 2 with their stupid rave and super Neo.
As far as Iron Man 3, Tony Stark sitting on his couch, watching tv, drinking a beer and scratching his crotch for two hours would be more watchable than seeing Matrix 3.
Like I said before Robert Downey Jr >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Keanu "The Cardboard" Reeves
If this were a song, the Matrix would be a one hit wonder while the Iron Man movies would be a solid string of hits.
