The idea of people getting hurt, and seeing dangerous situations, may lure people in to see the outcome.
I remember the first time I watched the movie “Terminator.” There was a scene where the child in the movie was being protected by the Terminator.
People think that films have influenced a number of killers in high profile cases such as the Jamie Bulger murder, which was linked to ‘Childs Play 3’ by the press.
But would censoring films more radically make any difference?
After blasting all 10,000 of the bullets into the ten guys he was trying to kill, my girlfriend got right up, marched over to the VCR in disgust, and pushed stop before I could get one word of protest out.
As you can see, these days there’s not much you can do to get away from watching a movie with even a little violence in it. I was watching a movie the other day, with my lovely girlfriend of course, by the name of “The Matrix.” The title caught both our eyes as we browsed the aisles of the movie store searching for something good to watch.Seeing that my girlfriend does like violence in movies and thinks its unreal, it seemed like a good enough choice for me.Film Violence Do you think there is a case for censoring films more radically than present or is this an infringement of personal liberty?Films are often blamed as an influencing factor in violent crimes, most notably murder.Throughout the film, scenes of violence sets the tone of the film.By doing so, the film associates itself with the genre of a "gangster and action" film.More recently in news coverage of conflicts in Rwanda, Kosovo and Bosnia.Why are these violent scenes not mentioned as an influence?This film was and still is a great example of low-key lighting and a classic gangster film of it's time.Many directors today could view this film and learn many things from it.
