The government should control the amount of violence in films and on television in order to decrease the violent crimes in society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

With the rapid development of science and technology, the television has become the indispensable part of our daily lives, no matter adults or children, who prefer to watch TV programs as recreation and a best way to alleviate stress. However, recently, an increasing number of people commit crimes due to watching too much violent plots on the TV programs. Therefore, whether the government should restrict the contents about violence and pornography in the television is a matter of some dispute. From my point of view, these contents should be forbidden immediately.

As we all know, youngsters are the principal group affected by these violent plots. Children’s psychologies are still immature and unformed, they are unable to distinguish between right and wrong, eventually, excessive violence in the media does have a simple, direct stimulus-response effect on the young people. As a result, youngsters will imitate the scenes and actions of violence and crimes in TV programs, thus becoming criminals. Similarly, such kinds of programs have negative influence on adults as well. Although adults possess higher ability to judge right from wrong and have stronger self-control, once they are exposed to such violent plots too much, they will just become numb and take it for granted. In deed, many cases of adult crimes were the result of films or television.

Apart from the detrimental effect on people, there is a noticeable negative influence on society. Harmonious society as a whole needs all the people’s efforts. In fact, many real-life cases of crimes remind us that only by hiring more policemen to maintain order would not have the desired results and even aggravate the financial burden on the country. Therefore, governments should take action to control these violent contents on the media.

To draw a conclusion, scenes of violence in TV programs are indeed harmful to both individuals and societies that government should strictly control the quality of programs.

Hi Candy, I thought this one one of your best essays yet. You had a lot of great ideas and expressed them very clearly. You only had a few outright errors, but you did have some other word choices that were not quite right, like "plots". I can say "I don't like TV shows with violent plots", but saying "violent plots on TV cause violence in the viewers" sounds odd, though I can't exactly explain why - maybe talking about plots alone without mentioning the programs they are in is what is odd. Anyway, I would rate this a solid band 7.

Violence In Films Essay

Violence In Films

In this essay I am going to compare 3 scenes of violence from 3 different genres and analyse their certifications and effects on young people and whether children are finding ways of viewing secretly, or are being allowed to see, too much violence in films, T.V or through any other median.

There has always been violence in films, and there has always been public debate along with it, but as the violence becomes more shocking and more accessible to young people is violence in films becoming more of an issue?

Or are we becoming less easily shocked and therefore less worried about violence in films and its effect on young people?

Is violence less shocking when it is…show more content…

He then, along with Trinity, takes on the agents whilst cart wheeling and leaping stylishly. Everything suggests that it is all very easy for him. We see him shooting with 2 hands whilst rolling to avoid shots aimed at him. They both come out unscathed and not even out of breath and both keep an "ice-cool" persona throughout the scene.

"Saving Private Ryan" certificate 15 was made in1999 and was directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Tom Hanks and Matt Damon.

In the opening scenes we see American soldiers coming into land on a cargo ship. There is no music and all you can hear is the sound of gunfire and the last screams of dieing men. You see the men on the ship in a realistic light; they are terrified. Their hands are shaking, their whole bodies are shivering and the viewer feels a real sense of tension. When we first see Hanks we just see his shaking hand, his apprehension embodied, and although he is the hero in this film we are seeing him in a human light. As the camera pulls away from Hanks we see men being physically sick and crying. As the front of the transporter goes down people are immediately being shot and blood is going everywhere. The camera used is simple and it looks as though the person filming was just someone ordinary that was there, it gives a documentary type of feel. It does not try to
