How influential are violent movies and games?

When I was growing up, I always watched Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry. Those are very violent cartoons, compared to today's cartoons. I never once thought of throwing an anvil on someone, or smacking them in the face with a rake, or any other violent act potrayed in the cartoons. I think it just depends on the person or people who are watching it. Everyone reacts in different ways to violence. Some shrink back from it, while others grasp it and want to be violent. I don't really think the media is to be "blamed" but they could show less of it. Parents need to control what their kids watch until they are mature enough to understand not to mimic the behavior. I know a few people who think it would be awesome to go shoot someone, but they don't do it. I just think that parents need more control over what their kids watch. That way violence among adolecents will decrease in the future.

Yes...i do agree that violence movies and new shooting computer games as such are having an effect to especially younger generation as it helps in growth of more and more criminals in younger generation and we have to do something to put a full stop in controlling these before it goes out of control isn't it?
