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 can be from any movie.

Regan from The Exorcist….


Danny Glick clinging to the window in Salem’s Lot


Or the chestburster in Alien? You feel?


So there it is.

To Disqus, and have at it fellow Movie Geeks! LET’S DO THIS!

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 nob@filmgoblin.com with “Debate Suggestion” in the subject line. We’ll be picking from suggestions for our regular debate topics.
