The documentary THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED actually addresses (in a pretty funny way) that ridiculous view.
How is that a rediculous view?
If you really think films that show boobs are more harmful than films that glorify violence, then you’re head is too jacked up for me to explain it to you.
If any of you actually think that violence or nudity are harmful in anyway, shape, or form to acts of violence in society then you are a paranoid, delusional, subjective thinking rats. And before everybody gets on the “lets hate him” bandwagon, do me a favor and tell me what movie, video game, or music people were watching/playing/listening to for centuries when monarchs and kings were killing innocent people by the thousands? Answer that and we might be able to have an conversation. One more question. I have been playing violent games and watching violent movies since as far back as I can remember and yet I don’t have a violent bone in my body. So why is that?
Certainly this part of the world (Australia) are somewhat bemused by the very different view of violence versus sex in the media in America.
You are absolutely right about that. And thank you so much for sharing “Wilfred” with us!
Thank you. I feel like I have been asking this questiin my whole life. I also don’t understand why people who actually think that way inflict it on those of us who don’t.
Which scenario is more likely:
A kid watches a gory, violent movie. He gets the urge to kill someone, gets a gun, and goes out and does it.
A kid watches a porn tape. He gets horny, goes out and contracts an STD.
I’m not saying either one is good. Back when movies were first made, a train falling into a river made the audience gasp because they thought a person was in it. Now, someone gets their head blown off and we high-five each other.
Now I’ll be desperately scanning the audience at the theater to see all these high fives I have never been a part of. You owe me at least one movie ticket.
Also, I meant to say that if they were watching a porn, they probably aren’t at risk for some random sexual encounter resulting in an STD. That’s why they are watching porn.
I wish I could “like” this comment.
That is an awesome response, lol
Neither one are good for children and studies have shown that one (whether sex or violence) affects the other.
Here in the Middle East, it’s far worse. In the cinema, people can be exploding on screen, but as soon as a KISS gets a bit passionate, it’s cut from the movie. And not even subtly – you will literally witness an unapologetic jump in the story.
When I saw The Boat that Rocked, entire scenes were missing. (I later saw it properly on DVD).
For Django Unchained, none of the violence was censored – obviously – but I THINK Broomhilde must have been naked when pulled from that hot pit they kept her in? Because the scene definitely jumped when they pulled her out……
I had no idea it was also like that in the US!
(Not the movie cutting, I’m sure that’s illegal there. But the mentality.)
