Die Hard is the quinessential action movie dude, pretty much defined the genre. I know about Terminator, I look at that as more sci-fi/action. I know how many great flicks Scorsese has made, but Departed and Casino are not on the same level as Taxi Driver. The others you mentioned are, but not quite as good imo.
Ironman was a very different style than Dark Night, but objectively speaking they are on the same level of quality, and came out in the same summer I believe. The Dark Night is one of most over-rated movies as far as people on the internet talking about movies. I loved it, but aside from Heath Ledger stealing the show, it was just a very good super hero movie, which there are many, many, many of. You seen Batman Begins? ALmost as good.
of course,because of it when tha time it came out.it pretty much ramped up tha genre from explosions,and added great acting
departed is great movie and has visuals to match,same wit casino.but i dont really hav a beef wit people sayin taxi driver is betta
what did u get out of dark knight and what did u think it was about?
iron man is immediately disqualified due to a generic a.ss villain.there was just nothin more to tha story.i think people only like it cause it was a super hero movie that didnt suck
