T2, there was almost never a dull moment in this flick. It was a tough choice though. Really enjoyed both.You better call Kenny Loggins. 'Cause you in the DANGER ZONE!

Definitely one of the more interesting "movie poll" threads. I agree that both movies are relevant to each other as they are both kings of their decade, 90s and 2000 respectively so i feel this result may have a resulting age bias. That said, I would go for T2 even though i loved TDK. The story, imagery, and especially musical score are so clear in my mind from T2 ,some 17yrs or so later that i have to give it to arnold.

T2. 18 yrs ago and still holding. Love TDK but hated the ferries sequence. Chris Nolan totally suck at directing actions. Batman still look like crap in broad daylight."Imagination will often carry
us to worlds that never were.
But without it, we go nowhere."

T2 for me, it's pretty much the perfect action/sci-fi movie.
TDK while very good at times is also really pretentious (paticually the ferry sequence) and suffers from a lot of plot holes and cliches.

I like TDK more. I think TDK is a classier film and much better in it's presentation... but, TDK doesn't have the kind of cult appeal that T2 had/has and didn't change the industry the way T2 did either. Ask me 10 times which movie I'd rather watch and I'd choose TDK probably 7-8 times over T2, but even with all of that, I gave the nod to T2 simply for it's cultural impact and sheer longevity of the film.

t2 for me, it was my favorite movie at one point when i was younger, still really hasn't gotten old to me
plus they've released 2304823049823948230948293042039 editions on dvd/video/bd so they keep it relevant

T2 was years ahead of other movies at the time. TDK's appeal is partially routed in Heath Ledger and his passing which was exploited leading up to the movie to build added hype. TDK The movie itself was good but I thought too long. I perfer T2.
It is testimony to T2 that you are comparing it with a movie made 17 years later and voting is still relatively close. A more closer comparison would have been against the 1989 Batman and we all no which movie for sure would be better.

Yeah but considering that the Dark Knight is perceived as superior to its predecessor, it'll be remembered more than Begins anyway and down the line, the lines will probably start to blur together.
