Book Post #2

Charlie Zielinski, Visuals Manager

My book is all about violence in media and if it should be shown and how it affects people. So far I only read the first chapter, so I read about all of the different types of violent films and the history of violent films. The first chapter talked about how one type of violent films is “juvenile and delinquent” films. I never really saw those films as violent because most delinquent films end with a good ending, so it kind of softens the fact that the movie was filled with violence.
