What's Better: Round 1: Match 7 (24 v 7)


Here's a battle of two works that generally are well respected amongst people whom I otherwise consider sane.

I got about 1/2 way through 24 Season 1 and found it outlandishly silly. I watched Se7en and found it morbidly gross. Yet each work has passionate fans that insist that it elevates the genre it inhabits.

So I ask, "What's Better?"

24 or Se7en?

Se7en, no question. 24 is decent popcorn TV, but Se7en, for all that it is in fact gross, is a great film.

Seven is a GREAT movie.

I couldn't finish watching Se7en. The first season of 24 was gripping--and even better on DVD.

Seven, though seeing it once was plenty.

Se7en.

The lighting alone puts this thing way out front, but then Kevin Spacey!! (and I don't mean the Kevin Spacey of Kpax and Pay it Forward and ugh David Gale) I mean the KS of Usual Suspects, Swimming with Sharks, The Big Kahuna, and Glen Gerry, Glen Ross.

Another vote for Se7en.

I guess I cast my vote for 24, though it looks like another where I'm on the losing side.
