I'm intrigued. Please continue.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

In 'The Amazing Spiderman", Andrew Garfield gives a great performance, Emma Stone is fantastic, the plot is solid, the and effects are amazing...... But in the movie Peter Parker uses the search engine Bing on three different occasions to look something up.

EVERYONE HERE KNOWS THOUGH THAT NO NERD WOULD EVER USE BING TO LOOK SOMETHING UP ON THE INTERNET

The only people who use Bing are old people who cant figure out how to switch browsers from internet explorer, where Bing is the default search engine. In none of the other three movies did something so scientifically implausible occur, therefore 'The Amazing Spiderman' is the worst of the last four Spiderman films ever made: because it implies that smart people use the search engine Bing when that has never happened in the history of forever.

I rest my case

I am surprised. I genuinely thought Pro was going to provide a substantial argument. To respond to his ridiculously simplistic argument, for one thing it is a fact that Bing's share in the U.S. search engine market has risen to 17% (1). Therefore, Bing has a big enough user base to justify its use in ASM.

As for the other movies, I submit that the entire Raimi trilogy have worse movies than ASM, on the basis of considerably more irritating plot points of actual importance. These include Parker walking away from a mugged man when he loses his powers, Parker losing his powers when he doubts his desire to be Spiderman (mutations should NOT work that way), the ridiculous logic that only Spiderman could stop Octavius even though he's still flesh and blood aside from the tentacles and not wearing armour, the STUPID butler scene, Venom only getting 5 minutes... the motion is rebutted. Vote Con.

Most shocking of all, is apparently AOL has a search engine.

Sorry about the wrong source. I meant to use this one. http://searchengineland.com... The source I used was a hangover from the global warming debate I'm involved in.

For those who haven't seen the movies, here's a couple great summaries of the flaws of the last two.

Reasons for voting decision: While Pro makes a fair point, it does not show how the Amazing Spider-Man was worse than the other 3. Con provides examples that show the other movies had elements that made no sense.

Reasons for voting decision: Not sure what happened with Ima on this. This was basically a one rounder, which Ima not giving himself the opportunity to refute any claims. Con adequately showed that Bing is somewhat popular and plausible to be used by someone, while pro made no attempt to back up any claims.

Reasons for voting decision: Argument: Damn you JonMilne! You refuted imabench's 'brilliant' argument by pointing out that there's like a 17% chance that a random teenager might use Bing (it's called product placement anyway). Sources: Global warming on mars, was unrelated to this argument, and the source did not even mention Bing. Thus sources remain tied (any vote giving con sources, is a little flawed). Conduct: Something of a protest vote. The standard for conduct votes includes "Which debater, on balance, was more composed, and used fewer or no personal attacks against their opponent?" Con lost his composure, and went into direct insults on pro's (and like half the audience) very taste in movies (admittedly James Franco should have at least fired that Butler).
