As this is my opponents first debate I will make this a basic debate. There will be three rounds.
Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Arguments
Round 3: Refutes and Conclusions

There will be no abuse of semantics and linguistics and I would love if this would be a fun debate that we can enjoy. I wish the best of luck to my opponent though he may not even need it. This debate will be a debate to decide if movies or books are better. I will allow my opponent decide what side he will take and I will take the other. My opponent may add rules as he likes on his acceptance round.

Let the debate commence!

Before I start since this is my opponents first debate I am going to refrain him from typing things like; "BOOKS ARE DA BOMB MAN!!! They are MaGiCaL :))" As it may cost you a few points in the voting period. Now for my arguments.

Arguments

Realistic

Unlike books, movies allow you to know what that character may be like for example. Children these days have a limited imagination thus, not allowing them to picture what a scenery or person may be like. This topic can also explain how a genre is better to understand and feel if you watch it instead of read it.

Faster

I'm sure that everyone is in a hurry to do things on their to-do list. If you watch a movie, of a book for example, you will know the characters and the story much faster than reading especially if you are not a fast reader.

Acting, Directing etc.

Movies are obviously better because the main people such as the actors or directors are so well known and they create such magnificent effects in their movies that it seems so real. People like actors for a reason weather it be their looks or talent people still like them better then the authors.
