  • Violence it is

    There are uncountable violent video games in the society which can cause violent change of characteristics of children. Why should movies be different? Many show violent actions not adequate for children who will do their most to watch the interesting-looking movie. Some young ones cannot help but contain the urge to try the same thing happened in the movie.

  • Movies cause violence in society

    Yes, I think that movies are causing violence in society as people are thinking that movies are real and not thinking about consequences. Movies are getting more violent it seems and people are thinking about replicating the violence that they see in movies in real life, which is why there is more violence.

  • No it doesnt

    Laboratory experiments in psychology find that media violence increases aggression in the short run. We analyze whether media violence affects violent crime in the field. We exploit variation in the violence of blockbuster movies from 1995 to 2004, and study the effect on same-day assaults. We find that violent crime decreases on days with larger theater audiences for violent movies. The effect is partly due to voluntary incapacitation: between 6PM and 12AM, a one million increase in the audience for violent movies reduces violent crime by 1.1 to 1.3 percent. After exposure to the movie, between 12AM and 6AM, violent crime is reduced by an even larger percent. This finding is explained by the self-selection of violent individuals into violent movie attendance, leading to a substitution away from more volatile activities. In particular, movie attendance appears to reduce alcohol consumption. Like the laboratory experiments, we find indirect evidence that movie violence increases violent crime; however, this effect is dominated by the reduction in crime induced by a substitution away from more dangerous activities. Overall, our estimates suggest that in the short-run violent movies deter almost 1,000 assaults on an average weekend. While our design does not allow us to estimate long-run effects, we find no evidence of medium-run effects up to three weeks after initial exposure.

  • Crime has existed long before modern entertainment

    People seem to forget that, humans have existed for thousands of years, TV/Movies/Video games are all relatively new technologies that have only recently been created, movies have existed for a little over a century.

    Violence occurs because people choose to do it, they choose to commit a crime/kill some one hurt some one. Some movies, games, TV show, plays, Books dramatize this in different ways.

    History is full of good and bad things, all done by humans like us, if we do not teach people about both the good and the bad, people will never stop repeating them. Violence is a fact of life, if it was not and we were all perfect there would be no need for a police force or the army, sad truth is people are not perfect never will be.

  • Movies do not cause violence in society

    Saying that movies causes violence in society is like saying that TV or video games causes violence in society. This is completely untrue, the real problem are the people that commit violence because they choose to do so. They realize what they are doing and it should not be blamed on something like a fake showing of a crime in a movie. Think about this, if movies caused crime in society then more people would be committing crimes.
