Are movies becoming more raunchy?

Many movies in the recent years are proving to be more sexual and filled with more adult content. These raunchy movies range from any form of movie genre such as: drama, comedy, sci-fi, action, etc.. Even though this trend seems to be taking place, the question is why? In my opinion I believe it is the new generation of young adults that is now running the show, the more tickets that are bought to see this raunchy videos, the more film makers are inclined to make them to make money. So us, the viewers, are most likely the cause for this dramatic change in what content is shown and discussed in movies. An example of how this seems to only be affecting the younger and more youthful generation is from a very well known film critic, Roger Ebert. When looking through Roger's website and all the reviews he has done i noticed that anything he lists as a "great movie", is mostly all older films from the 90's to even the 20's. Not one of the movies made today has made his list, however the movies he doesn't choose remain to be the most "popular" in our culture. So, basically i used his website as a way to show and better explain my point about the movies today being for a younger audience or at least attract a different audience than the generation before. To look at Roger Ebert's site and check it out for yourself click here: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=REVIEWS Now to move onto my broader point about movies being more raunchy than ones in the past. I found an interesting article written by Bob Fischbach, explaining how movies today are more raunchy and more specifically the "coming of age" movies. He explains we know that sex sells but how did we get to a point where we have such movies as Easy A, or SuperBad becoming blockbuster hits? Bob Fischbach says, "Did movies push us down that road? Maybe, but if so, they didn't have to push very hard. We're still in the drivers seat to determine what gets made, every time we buy a ticket." To read Bob Fischbachs article and more on what he has to say please click here: http://www.omaha.com/article/20100916/ENTERTAINMENT/709169963 In conclusion, it is obvious that movies are starting to become more sexual oriented and the more they become bigger hits, the more that will be made. Once again this only seems to be affecting the younger generations today, and with the older ones dieing off, the younger generations are the ones running the show now. Films are changing slowly but soon enough these raunchy films will become normal and unnoticed by society.

So i went to see this movie in theatres when it came out and i thought it was gonna be funny and ok. Only because Adam Sandler has not done great movies like the old ones such as Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison. However this movie was halarious, anytime you get that many talented actors together like Chris Rock and Rob Schneider, its almost impossible for it to be a bad movie.

Ok so this movie is a comedy and a very good one, its one of those that will never get old and the jokes will live on. I suggest anyone who has not seen the movie does so right away, because you are definitely missing out. If you didn't like the movie I'd like to know why so COMMENT PLEASE. Thanks and heres the link for the trailer to the movie:

This was a really good movie, it was predictable but most movies are these days. Also it wasn't just a sappy chick flick, it was funny throughout the whole movie with humor of all kinds. I didn't expect this movie to be good when i heard about it, cause basically its about a couple who dies leves there kid to their best friends and they have to raise her. So i didn't think it could be a funny, interesting movie but they have a lot of comic relief characters when things get sad or down. I would reccomend this movie if people haven't seen it yet.

I have included the trailer to the movie so if you havn't seen anyhting or heard about it now you can, maybe you will be interested maybe not. But it is worth your money and time so here's the link:



Saw 7 was much different from the other ones made in the franchise, it seemed to be less quality in acting and special effects, however it is a 3D movie and i didn't see it in 3D so that may have been a problem. Other than that the story line was good and interesting, but they keep bringing old characters back to life it seems. You don't see some of them die and all of them have been ending up helping the killer in the movie. Now with the ending on this one it seems like they will go on and make another. The Saw movies have really gone downhill ever since the 3rd movie and aren't as good as they ones before them and they should probably quit while there still ahead.

Anyway, if you didn't get to see the movie yet ill post the trailer for it but it's not really all that good so try and get it at redbox for a $1.
