    Should violent movies be regulated?[W:64]

    Many action movies glorify violence and teach gruesome methods of killing people. Some horror movies celebrate fictional serial killers?

    No, that's censorship.

    What should be regulated is children & adolescents viewing such material. Why? Compare a horror movie from the 70's like The Exorcist to a horror movie from this era like Sinister. The cinematography, visual & special & sound effects, etc are orders of magnitude beyond what previous eras had to offer, yet those movies from yesteryear scared the bejesus out of children then. An apt comparison is marijuana from the 70's to the medicinal stuff today.

    Very true they do. I don't think we need any governmental regulation here though. The MPAA's system generally works pretty well in my opinion.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    There are things such as the MPAA Rating System (http://www.mpaa.org/film-ratings/).

    And as a parent I have access to parental controls both through my cable subscriber and can limit by channels, by rating, and by time of day what be viewed on can my TV.

    Same goes with my Netflix account, I control the parental controls and can limit what is viewed either on the whole account or for specific profiles.





    So are you talking about regulating what comes into your home or what your kids view or are you talking using big government to regulate what other peopel view?

    Can't answer your poll because you left out the option for "Parent should regulate what their children view."

    Turn off the TV, limit viewing time of your children, or block channels that you disagree with.


    Regulate your TV, don't try to regulate mine.

    I voted no . . . no more than they already are by being rated "R". We've got enough to worry about without trying to legislate that crap. Worstest ever: Hostel and its sequels and, of course, "Let's play a game." (What was the name of those movies?) Oh, yes. Googled and edited: Saw and its sequels. Gruesome. Loved 'em.

    Edit: Loved 'em, yet capture and carry live spiders and other bugsters outside to turn them loose.

    They already are. Why do you think we have a rating system?
