The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Improves on the Book

Dakbykayk
JaxsonRaine

As said above, this is debate is of the argument that the Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy directly by Peter Jackson is an improvement upon the source material for the movie Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. I ask first, what is it that makes a story exciting and memorable? Though many may take their own stances on this, I would say that properly placed conflict is indeed the heart of any story. Without conflict and the need to resolve it, a story does not exist. At the c...

Tchaikovsky. Tortured soul or poof who wrote tunes?

ooberman

Tchaikovsky. Was he the tortured soul who poured out his immortal longings into dignified passages of stately music, or was he just an old poof who wrote tunes? Well, if you can imagine the size of Nelson's Column, which is roughly three times the size of a London bus, then Tchaikovsky was much smaller. His head was about the same size as that of an extremely large dog, that is to say, two very small dogs, or four very large hamsters, or one medium-size rabbit if you count the whole of the bo...

I was cold and hurting lost out in the night wandering and searching for heaven's light I saw the night sky clearing when you spread your rainbow wings But little did I know what joy you would bring From that moment on a friendship did start you kissed away my tears and sheltered my heart I bless the day God sent him from above But then I grew fearful for I had fallen in love I told you this feeling and what did you say? You said you liked our friendship and that's how...

Imabench Hates Me More Than I Hate Him

Rational_Thinker9119
imabench

I am in the mood for a troll debate. I was thinking, "who better than imabench!".Rules The burden of proof is shared. Imabench must show that I hate him more than he hates me. I must show that he hates me more than I hate him. The first round is not for acceptance, as imabench will start right off the bat with an argument. I want the last word however. Therefore, in the last round, imabench will simply put:<...

The Crime Spencer has meticulously planned out every detail of the robbery. So what could go wrong? "Crime in our town has gone up for the seventh straight month. Police are at a loss for the reason. They are warning all citizens to be on their guard." "Hopefully, not too much on their guard," Spencer said with a chuckle. He turned off the radio as he sat in his pickup truck. His eyes were trained on the liquor store as he watched the only remaining customer leave. "It's show time," Spe...
