Movie violence

by thoughtfulconservative

Eugene Kane blames at least part of violence in America on the movies,

I wonder why so many people seem surprised at the random violence in America that regularly bubbles up and explodes in all kinds of horrible ways, everything from school yard shootings to car jackings to serial killers to murder-suicide domestic incidents.

Violence is all around us and apparently we like it. Just check out the movies.

So do movies, as Hollywood contends, merely reflect culture? Or do they influence culture?

And what difference does it make. It’s Free Speech and we can’t do anything about it anyway.

  1. I love a violent movie just as much as the next guy.

    I can assure you though that the odds of my going on a violent rampage are slim and none.
