movies are better because you can see your favourite books acted out really well by great actors/actresses. Your favourite stories brought to life. Watching movies is also relaxing and enjoyable and nice to do with friends. They are emotional and can make you laugh really hard or cry your eyes out.
Some movies are informative, some just total nonsense!
Movies are awesome and I love them. The perfect Saturday night in !!!

IDK. The Princess Bride, easily the film. The War of the Worlds, easily the book. Twilight- neither.

Welcome to DDO! I see that you are new, so I want to point things out:

(1. I see that you only have one round.
a. This means that your opponent can't reply to any of your rebuttals.
b. With that, you simply wrote the word books, which can get you to a risk of losing.
c. Either way, this is a easy debate
(2. I also see that you made your debate impossible to accept.
a. Your debate will expire.
b. Your debate is yet a easy topic, but I don't see how this is a complex and hard debate
(3. You haven't set any rules at all
a. For that, you are saying that your opponent can do anything he/she wants
(4. So, for future reference, you should probably either have multiple rounds in your debates, or provide your entire argument in the first round.

Ghat is all I have to say.

I'll debate you on this, but I feel bad since there's only one round. Send me a challenge with more rounds, and I'll accept.

What's up, jenniferlynne?

Since you are new to this website, there's something that you should probably know. You only have one round for the debate. However, you only write "Books" In your argument. That means your only argument for this debate is simply the word "Books". All your opponent would have to do is provide one reason why movies are better to win the debate.

So, for future reference, you should probably either have multiple rounds in your debates, or provide your entire argument in the first round.

I hope I was a help!
