Movie critics are usually biased. We got the similar ratings for Avengers, Avengers 2, Captain America Civil War and the WInter Soldier. Not even an idiot would give the same ratings for all of them.

hey there, this is quite an interesting topic,

if we are to look at your examples, looking at rotten tomatoes as the source:

https://www.rottentomatoes.com... 92%

https://www.rottentomatoes.com... 89%

https://www.rottentomatoes.com... 75%

https://www.rottentomatoes.com... 90%

so yes, while they all have review scores that are fairly grouped together, it can be argued that what your saying is your opinion. That you believe that those movies are on far different levels to each other for one reason or another. But when it comes down to it, thats what it is, your opinion, as a "critic" that these movies are not that great for one reason or another. Its basically you dis-agreeing with the other critics, and proceeding to call them out for being biased based on nothing but your opinion on those movies.

It is not only my opinion but the general opinion of everyone.
However, I concede to my opponent for this debate as I don't wish to research, and without research debating this topic would be pointless.

>Reported vote: Codedlogic// Mod action: NOT Removed<

4 points to Con (Arguments, Conduct). Reasons for voting decision: Pro conceded as they didn't wish to do research. I'm not really sure what someone who doesn't wish to do research is doing on a debate site.

[*Reason for non-removal*] Votes on conceded debates are not moderated unless the voter votes for the conceding side.
