Poll: Today's Live Poll
  • I can see what Dahl is saying... that violent movies give violent people something to do instead of being violent. But that idea seems buried under the gimmicky writing of the article, which provokes readers with the nonsensical idea that violent movies reduce violent behavior. Violent movies don't reduce violent behavior, they nurture and validate it. The title and premise of the article, and presumably Dahl's study, seem purposefully misleading. Violent movies may reduce violent behavior by giving violent people a vicarious way to act out. But, do the movies still nurture violent tendencies? Do they desensitize young audiences? Do they make people think violent thoughts? Do they still do all the things everybody fears that they do? Yes! So, the impact of viewing violent movies is NOT surprising. This study is just one more, less significant, chapter of the story.

  • The lesser of two evils, and it starts in the home in my opinion, what do you let your kids view?, what habits do they carry forward that they want to watch R or 18 rated movies which are in the main quite offensive?
