The Dark Knight vs. Stranger Than Fiction



This is tough because it's complex character development versus complex story line. Dark Knight has the development of Batman's cardinal rule which is never kill and you see the Joker a character whose past is truly unknown whose motives is just chaos and disorder. Someone who is just pure evil. However the story line however campy in the end has a truly interesting and different story line. It is very thought provoking. However the pacing did slow down a bit in some parts and some may see it as overly detailed.

actually watched stranger than fiction again a couple a days ago and enjoyed it but definitely found it to be slow in parts. Dark night on the other hand had me captivated from the beginning to end.

The film universally regarded as the greatest superhero film to ever grace motion picture vs Will Ferrell's Punch Drunk Love (critically praised but a commercial flop)
