Violence in Movies Bulling Our Youth

Extracts from this document...


Violence in Movies Bulling Our Youth "My name is Bond, James Bond." Almost everyone knows that this dialogue belongs to a famous British casanova hero who saves the world in the "James Bond" movies. These movies in every episode always successfully hit the Box office. Like other action films, film industries gain a number of money when the films was released. However, many heroes in movies often solve problems by violent acts. This becomes a typical character of action film hero. As a result, violent crimes even among children are more and more prominent in our society.

It has been claimed that movies are presentations of the real world. They are established to present the real problems in the society directly and indirectly, they prepare people for real life.

Moreover, what most children think when their hero, like James Bond, seems to have sex with his female accomplice in every episode before they save the world and why does James Bond have a new his girl in every episode?

Also movies like "American Pie", inwhich we see the culture of male teenagers, desperate to have had sex with a girl before they reach the end of high school, this puts a false pressure on youngsters to experiment sexually. Now many kids misunderstand what is right to do. ...read more.

Because it causes our world unhealthy!! The term "Youth" from Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English means "the period of time when someone is young, especially the period between being a child and being fully grown". Childhood is the age of imitating role models which can be their parents, teachers, or people surrounding them. Now children who learn from what they see are sitting opposite the big screen seeing lots of bloody deaths, and even blood covering on the screen. Is this what adults call entertainment? Do you want them to grow up desensitized to extreme violence because they have seen on the big screen since they were children? Remember this... youth is the future of the world. This is a serious problem for our society. If you want this world to be a place of peace and morality, we, all adults who are involved, should save our next generation from this violence in movies.
