The movie Ten Things I Hate About You shows youth in a more stereotypical way because the movie constantly shows scenes where teens are either partying, making out or doing other rebellious things.
Analysis of Gerard Jones’ “Violent Media is Good for Kids” In the article called “Violent Media is Good for Kids,” by Gerard Jones, a renowned comic- book author, argues that violent media can be helpful for children, rather than be overly harmful. Parents aren’t taking the time to look at how helpful violent media could be for their child.

All the lessons were either dressed up as funny characters or said in a tongue twister fashion so that you may not understand it the first time, but when you read it with a wider insight, everything you never saw before hits you at once.

In most, if not all the films viewed in this class, the common event that is going on is the Spanish Civil War. This event affected everyone. For adults, I believe that realism is the best way to deal with history, but since children are the focus in most of our movies, I think that fantasy is best and I will be defending it from the standpoint of a child.

Sitting down and watching your favorite one at the time on an endless loop, guaranteeing annoying our parents even when doing practically nothing. But what we did not realize at the time was the effects that kids’ movies have on us. Or the lines the writers put in the movies for adults to enjoy the movie as well.
