Poll The Dark Knight (2008) vs. The Lion King (1994) (59 votes)

The Dark Knight (2008) 66%
The Lion King (1994) 34%

While I like The Lion King (1994), The Dark Knight (2008) still stomps IMO. If you think otherwise, you are blinded by horrible 90's nostalgia.

In my imagination, The Dark Knight is competing with a much more interesting animation for the title of Best Picture of 2008.

I think Dark Knight is the better movie, but I enjoy watching Lion King more.

Thinking you're better than everyone else and acting like subjectivity doesn't exist.

Yup, it's him.

@thebridebeatrixkiddo: Yes. For me Pixar was miles above Disney Renaissance during its prime (2001~2010).

@kingcarcosa: that’s a tough one for me. The toy stories walle up incredibles finding nemo ratatouille, etc (there are so many) and more recently inside out coco incredibles 2 and toy story 4 are all fantastic. ESPECIALLY inside out, I think it might be my favourite.

While I would put most of these if not all above the majorities of Disney renaissance, I hesitate to put them above lion king, except for maybe a few. Not saying lion king is better, just that the movie was special and is for sure in the same league as the mentioned movies for me, except for toy story 3, inside out and up. Those are in a league of their own. Those are probably the best animated movies I’ve ever seen. Sorry for the long post, I love Disney and Pixar and it’s cool to see something on the front page of this site instead of an mcu versus battle thread.

@thebridebeatrixkiddo: toy story 4 is fantastic in my opinion. And while disneyncould take the easy route sometimes (mountains and mountains of remakes) to say their movies are all the same is just factually wrong.

I thought toy story 4 would be garbage when it was announced but the film had a lot of heart was very well made and was a beautiful ending for woody. His character arc completed and was in no way one dimensional

@thebridebeatrixkiddo: a lot of people would disagree with your opinion of toy story 4. Necessary? No it wasn’t, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have something to say or that it progressed it’s characters in a meaningful way.

Also yes, some of the live action remakes are days grabs, 100 percent. I can admit that, even the ones I really liked (Aladdin, beauty and the beast and jungle book). But that’s just a small portion of their entire portfolio, so to say they’re generic or just spit out the same movies because of that is not really a fair assessment at all. But to each their own, you could hate them, I love them.

Rip off or not, TLK was literally the most popular movie Disney's ever made. No contest.

I'm not sure any CBM comes close to The Lion King. TDK certainly doesn't.

As much as I'd love to spite OP by choosing TLK, I'm gonna have to go with The Dark Knight.

But don't get me wrong, TLK is amazing and is one of the, if not my favourite movie of all time.

Going with the The Dark Knight here. Lion King is a fantastic film too, but The Dark Knight is close to art, a technically perfect handpainted movie.

To be fair, it's not like it needs to be to be around TDK's level.
