    No, you're ruining the thread by going off topic. Stick to the topic. It's movies and ratings. Have some self control please instead of bringing in the topic of guns and trying to be a flamer.

    Re: Should violent movies be regulated?

    Anyways, back to the thread topic, after we were so RUDELY interrupted, I think that it is ridiculous for anyone to suggest that a movie or a video game would cause a person to commit a murder or any violence. I think that tendency already exists in a person, and if it's not one thing that sets them off, it would just be something else.

    I'll talk about whatever I feel is relevant, as is my nature. You're not a moderator, and you're not my mother. You've wasted an entire page of this thread because you don't like me.

    Parents should be responsible for what their kids see.

    That said, Showgirls should have been banned simply for being so offensively bad.

    Stop it and get a grip on yourself. If you are going to post, then you need to stick to the topic or you are breaking the rules. If you have nothing relevant to contribute, then you do NOT have to keep posting.

    Anyone nutty enough to want to commit murder will do it with or without video games and movies.

    People were committing acts of mayhem long before either technology was available.

    I don't blame movies or video games for provoking violence. I do blame lack of regulation and responsibility on certain instruments of violence for making it easier to perpetrate. If your child is sick and suffering from mental illness, don't keep a loaded gun on the wall.

    Well they are regulated, per se, but not by any governing body, or anyone in any position of authority. They are "regulated" by the industry.

    That is lack of parental responsibility. Taking care of your kids is NOT the job of the government.
