I have long admired "Dick Tracy"'s production design, from sets to costumes to music. On the other hand, "Tombstone" is a shameless macho-fest chock-full of quotable dialog. There's also Val Kilmer's top-notch performance to consider...

Yes, Dick Tracy is quite impressive to look at, particularly for a movie that's over 20 years old now. But it has a pretty threadbare story, and Madonna looks like she belongs in a completely different movie (I just found her whole look distracting). Val Kilmer does indeed give a great performance in Tombstone, but that movie has excellent performances all over the place (although Dana Delany's performance is quite awful). Great acting, great screenplay, just a great movie all around. Tombstone wins big...
