Do movie cause social evil to youths
Watching movies always considered as a relaxing thing because movie can satisfied us with all different needs. However, because of the technological development, people can download all the movie from plentiful websites easily with laptops or even a cellophane. And due to the advancement of accessing, there is no specific range of age to watch those movies. Many movies such as godfather, triple x, the wolf of the wall streets both with the theme of patriotism, crime and action always got chased by youths.
I leveled here specific types of negative impact to make a better explanation. First of all is violence. Speaking of violence movie, guns and blood always present. If we think back some news of school shootings and many homicides committed by youths, there is so much violence involved at this early age. Other examples such as bullying, substance abuse happens a lot as well. The spreading of media and movie is one of the most important reasons. Teenagers just imitate the shooting behaviors from movies but knowing nothing about consequence, because movies hardly mention that.
Second one is drug abuse. As young kids started to grow up with desires, it is easy to get curious about the things that they don’t know. Statistics done by Cambium’s(the Nation Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University) show that, 86 percent of US high school students know someone who drinks, smokes or does drugs. Around 50 percent know classmate who sells drugs. Media portrayal of drugs can lead the teenagers to know the drugs from negative sights and show the audience how it feels exaggeratedly. The last one is adultery and premature sex.
It is more often that having nudity and sex scenes has become an attraction point or selling point. Younger generation become premature sex conscious and imitate the scenes of movies in real life. Without correct sex protection, more and more problems occur such as teenagers parents and so on. The impact of premature sex caused diseased society both mentally and physically. Most movies do have harmful impact on the youths. But the most important thing is to know the truth and reality in life.
