Batman vs. Bond vs. Trek - Round 9

The winners from previous rounds:

1. Goldeneye
2. Star Trek: First Contact
3. The World Is Not Enough
4. Star Trek: Nemesis
5. Batman Begins
6. The Dark Knight
7. The Dark Knight
8. Batman (1966)

This is the penultimte round. This time it's The Classics Round. Goldfinger and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan set standards that James Bond and Star Trek movies are still being compared to today. The Dark Knight immediately set a standard for comic book movies and will no doubt become what future Batman movies are going to be compared to.

During the first four rounds, Batman wasn't winning anything. For the next four, it won everything. But how does a film like The Dark Knight pan out when compared to the classics of the two other franchises from decades past?

I voted Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

I think The Dark Knight has won enough rounds. We also don't know how it will ultimately look until The Dark Knight Rises is released and we see how it all fits. And I just prefer The Wrath of Khan.

I like Goldfinger but my favorite of the early Bonds is actually Dr. No.

Re: Batman vs. Bond vs. Trek - Round 9

My vote is for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

I like The Dark Knight a lot, but find its flaws more apparent than the Meyer-helmed Trek sequel.

Goldfinger isn't as smart as its predecessor, From Russia with Love. It's the beginning of what the James Bond series would become under Connery and Moore, and what it would become famous for, but I can't help but like Connery's first two films. They have a harder edge than any of the movies beginning with Goldfinger.

TWOK for me, no hesitation. I like both the others but I do feel they're somewhat overrated, especially Goldfinger, or it might just be I've watched it too mnay times.
