    I'm a bit tired of hearing the left whining about gun violence and then discovering that yet another violent movie has been released like "Gangster Squad" and "Django" or "Chainsaw Massacre".

    There is plenty of other subject matter out there you can make movies about other than gun violence or mass-murder. Change starts from within Hollywood.

    One of the reasons America is such a violent society is because Hollywood spends so much time glorying gun-wielding assholes. Maybe being a good upstanding member of a society should be stressed a bit more in movies.

    I don't think we can ban violence in movies but we need to relook our ratings system

    While blowing shit up and shooting into a crowd is PG-13

    Hollywood will quit making violent movies when Americans quit supporting them. Hollywood is about money, not art.

    I don't agree.

    Hollywood can make a story about a game show seem interesting. Reality programming proves utter nonsense can sell if it's all that's available.

    The fact is making good movies is difficult so sex and violence can cover up serious flaws in plot and scriptwriting. Plus the fact that Hollywood dwells on negativity rather than something that uplifts the soul. When they focus on what is good in life or in strong values it cleans up at the boxoffice.

    I think Hollywood has a bad attitude and they want us all to be a part of their negativity.

    Most of the crap that Hollywood awards hardly anyone wants to see. The good movies that people would pay to see aren't considered as highly regarded as the "art" Hollywood loves. So many times good movies are few and far between.

    Hollywood makes non violent movies all the time! They just don't make any money because no one goes to see them.

    Hollywood makes what sells and what they can make cheap. This is why they make so many sequels, they can be made a lot cheaper than buying an original script.
