I like the Iron Giant and all, but I still think I like Johnny 5 more. It really comes down to the fact that I'll stop channel surfing to watch a Short Circuit film, but I'll pass by the Iron Giant

Today is apparently Iron Giant's 18th anniversary!

The similarities between these two are pretty interesting. Both were designed to be machines of war, but after learning about humanity they chose to be instruments of peace and protection.

This is a tough call. I think it will come down to nostalgia; in this case, my nostalgia for Short Circuit is stronger it is for the Iron Giant.

The Iron Giant has more power, and therefore more responsibility.

He's also in the better movie.

Iron Giant is in the better movie, but Johnny 5 has more quotable lines.

Vin Diesels role as the Iron Giant is widely regarded as the reason he was approached to voice Groot. So a vote for the Iron Giant is a vote for Groot in a way.

Still I'm voting for Johnny 5 because those two movies were more of a part of my childhood than the Iron Giant was and they still hold up very well today.
