I'd love to see him return to sci-fi.

Favreau was influenced by Robocop.

The Matrix was leagues ahead of Iron Man, but the Wachowski's recent work increasingly makes me wonder if that was a one off.

The notion of them tackling Iron Man would be interesting, but they're not the kind of directors Marvel would go for. They'll want someone safe and reliable whom they can impose their will on.

lmao, Matrix was hardly leagues ahead of Iron Man. What just because they made bullet time and that camera trick famous? Because that was the only original thing that movie had going for it.

Keanu Reeves couldn't hold Robert Downey Jr's jock strap. The damn strawberry vendor in Iron Man 2 was a better actor and had better charisma than Keanu.

Matrix 2 was ass

Matrix 3 was completely unwatchable.

Ha! Iron Man better than The Matrix?

Iron Man had like two short action scenes and they pale in comparison to the many classic Matrix action scenes. Matrix +1

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.

I'm not interested in a Matrix vs Iron Man debate, but the former was so much more than the novelty of bullet time and, lousy sequels aside, pop culture has judged it accordingly. It's not as if Iron Man 2 was loved either.

The Matrix was just a bunch of goth/emo/punk-types convincing themselves that they are just 'oh so cool'. Spare me.

The Matrix honestly reminded me of the Sims games.

So you ignore the overall quality of the movie because you have issues with the fashion. Gotcha.

Did I say fashion? It's the whole mentality of the movie.

Elaborate. Presumably you mean thematically, if it's not about the fashion.

Well it's just the whole emo/goth/punk/slacker/hacker/anti-establishment mindset of the film that takes the whole paranoid-ness of those groups and glorifies it as if they are the ultimate standards of what we the audience should like/care about and what we shouldn't. In other words, it's the 'we're so cool and all else isn't' mindset that has always bugged me. The Matix isn't the only film to tap into these subgroups desire for dark/edgey self-importance. The Crow, TDK and Dark City do the exact same thing and appeal to pretty much the same sensibilities. I, as someone who has never and WILL never have those same sensibilities,....don't like such fare.
