They claim that violence in movies has impact but that drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, adultery, and foul language are not mimicked by the culture based on media portrayals of such failings.
Only smoking and guns are “glamorized” by Hollywood.
True. Despite their claims of trying to discourage violence, most of them appear on their Movie Covers holding a gun. The higher the body count, the better the gross on the movie.
Movies don't make people violent. (well... unless it's a Bruce Lee Movie).
It is we who are violent, movies are merely a reflection of human beings.
The WEIRD thing about us in the United States is that we are saturated in 'fictional' violence, and rarely exposed to 'the real thing'. While the movie violence makes us drink more pop, the real thing causes most to vomit. That is why our news is censored.
In other countries, REAL violence is shown. The blood is real, and the shots are not cropped (for America's sensitive audience).
