Welcome to another edition of our recurring feature here at FilmGoblin:  NERD FIGHT!

How it works is really simple:  A movie-related central supposition or motion is proposed, and then everyone everywhere can go full geek and debate that motion.

The only rules are:

  1. Stay on topic.
  2. No personal attacks / don’t be a dick!
  3. Have fun.
It’s on like Megalodon!

The Motion

This Nerd Fight topic is proposed by Film Goblin Director Of Stoicism and Resident Mexican God, Helluva Texas Ronin.

Got an idea for Nerd Fight? See below for how to submit.

The motion is this:

 WAR!  What is it good for?  Absolutely nothing in this case!

Captain America : Civil War is a pointless, nothing movie!

It just sits there, between the excellence of The Winter Soldier and the superlative Avengers: Infinity War as a half-hearted, half-assed Avengers 2.5 that seems to serve no purpose but to introduce Black Panther and Spider-Man without having to risk their own movies yet, and as a test bed to a big team up before the main course of Infinity War.

It even manages to have Cap share the limelight in his own movie with Stark. No!  Just No!

Like a ruck?  Can’t go a day without an argument on the internet?  You contrarian bastard, you.  Get your freak on with some earlier Nerd Fights:

Star Wars here.

Bond here.

Marvel here.

Got a movie-related topic that you want to see debated on FilmGoblin? You have? Excellent! Put it into the form of a statement or motion and email it to thefilmgoblin@gmail.com with “Debate Suggestion” in the subject line. We’ll be picking from suggestions for our regular debate topics.
