      BlvdBroken, fuck yourself. The original is not always better. Just look at Devin Townsend's remakes of "Kingdom" and "Hyperdrive".

      "Blvd has a point... take a look at the old Star Wars vs. the new Star Wars." Actually, the prequels were better than the original. They didn't have annoying stuff that didn't go with the plot well and the prequels had better graphics. And i dont need to mention that the music was pretty good in the original but even better in the prequels

      I agree. i am a huge fan of the Dark Knight. I read the summary for Batman 1989, and it seemed like a pretty awful movie

      Remakes are known to either suck balls or be much better. There are many cases of both. I personally loved the Dark Knight and have not seen it in a long time.

      The Dark Knight has one of the tightest (not the slang) scripts in the history of film. Where as Batman is a mediocre superhero film, that is only respected because it inspired other superhero films to be made.

      The Dark Night portrayed Ledger's very own creation of the Joker. His performance was art. However, art is always open to interpretation.

    I did not care for Nolan's Batman universe, Heath did a good job but I still liked Jack's more. Batman is one of my favorites and have seen many portrayals of said hero. IMO the best character in the Nolan films was the Scarecrow. As for batman himself Bale has been the second worse batman, first being Kilmer, and second worst Bruce Wayne, first being Clooney.

      Not really sure what watching Superman has to do with Batman... different directors, different screenwriters, different cast, the only similarity is that they're from the same original source material UNIVERSE.

      I am going to tear eown everything you all have said in a single comment. to start off the original was better no doubt about it the diloge was batter and the characters were much better developed. And the main character didn't sound like he had strep throught through out the movie. But the dark knight series also brought a new twist to the batman. But it in almost every fucking way possible said fuck you to the villins and batman.The movies followed one simmilarity Bruce's parents were killed in a mugging and other than that they sucked meaning that the original WINS!

    Personally, Batman. I don't hate The Dark Knight (it's a mostly solid movie), but the comic book medium is strongly visual storytelling and has weaker narratives than a book, and I think Batman excels at accepting its genre. The Dark Knight is an eccentric crime thriller.

    I really want to see how the most popular ideas started, and I want to observe their differences, and their same features and ideas. The Dark Night I do not even know about, and it doesn't sound well, either. I think batman would be better even though it is the original. I don't think I would like The Dark Night, anyway.

    I think they are both great movies . I have seen them both many times.But i would have to say the dark knight is better because technology of 2008 is no comparison to 1989. I also think its endlessly stupid how most people have no clue about the fact that " The Dark Knight" is not the first in the series. O and if any of you say heath ledger is anything but incredible... He won an oscar for his performance.
