    I am a student of the University of Illinois and in a speech class a student is giving a speech on why you SHOULDN'T go see AOTC and I am going to ask him 3 questions trying to challenge his arguement.

    His 3 main points are:
    1 it gives clones a bad name.
    2 it is just a marketing tool to sell merchandise.
    3 and your time/ money are better off put toward something else.

    does anyone have any advice on what i could ask him to argue his topics? I am a starwars fan but I don't know much about the new movie. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Well, in debate, you would ask what his evidence is, since he can't have seen the movie yet. That would pretty much blow all three of his arguments (but especially #1 and #3) out of the water.

    I'm pretty spoilerfied, and while I can't talk about here, all indications are this will be a great Star Wars movie.

    I'd ask him why is he singling out Star Wars? Every PG & G movie has merchandise tie ends. Harry Potter, LOTR, Monsters, Inc....I mean you can argue why see any movies at all. I'd hit him with the fact that Star Wars movies are geared towards kids while having something for's just good family entertainment, regardless if you're a hardcore fan or not.

    But yeah, make him show his evidence. Unless he's seen a rough cut, he has no real evidence. (The spoilers are pretty dead on, but for the sake of your class, you can deny them as rumors) ;)

    I have another one: ask him if it's as much a waste of time as listening to his speech!

    Remind him that Star Wars is science fiction not science fact and that after all
    it is a product of Hollywood.Wether you
    believe cloning is a good thing or a bad
    thing it is only a movie.
