After last week's tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, it was only a matter of time before we heard pundits hop on CNN and MSNBC and tout the "Violence and Hollywood" angle as a possible motive. A secondary thread to this is "Violence and Video Games," and that is also another factor in this case. Many folks want to take a look at MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) ratings, because PG-13 films have the same amount of violence, suggestive scenes, and language that a Rated R film did ten years ago. Has violence in Hollywood movies escalated? Sure. I would hardly argue with that statement, as torture porn movies like Saw came in vogue and sophomoric sex humor encouraged by the success of the Judd Apatow movies grew. I think we have become accustomed to tolerating more in our PG-13 movies as trends and social mores have changed.
