Do you think Hollywood will ever learn not to glamorize blood and guts? All the while protesting guns.
It takes some very magical ideological glasses to convince oneself that Hollywood does not endlessly glamorize firearms in its films.

You pine for a return of the Hays Code, don't you?

Discussions like these always remind me of that episode of THE WEST WING where President Bartlett wisely said:

"The problem is not that his movies are filled with sex and violence. The problem is that his movies are terrible."

Over time people become desensitized to violence, gore, hard core sex, porn, in order to keep filling seats, the filmakers have to keep pushing the envelope of whats acceptable/ tolerable.

What is 'hard core/ extreme' today, will be tame in 10-15 yrs, and so on and so on.

I won’t watch gory films. Classic horror (like “Frankenstein” and “Dracula” from the 30s) is fine, as is non-bloody suspense (such as Hitchcock pre-Psycho).
