The Influence of Movies
Nowadays, it seems that people are spending more and more time watching some sort of visual entertainment, whether it is television, a video tape or a DVD. There is no doubt that watching movies has become one of the main entertainments today and can influence the way that people behave. Therefore, the influence of movies cannot be ignored.
Firstly, there are more and more advertisements before the movies. For example, I have experienced thirty minutes advertisements before the movie began. Secondly, the movies affect people in that they give people either a broader view of the world or an interesting one, depending on what type of programs they choose. For instance, those who watch news and educational programs can learn new things while those who watch entertainment shows can have great fun. Finally, perhaps the most susceptible viewers are children, who may be unable to tell fact from fiction and may try to imitate acts that they see in the movies.
In conclusion, with the ever-increasing popularity of movies, the influence is also tremendous and overwhelming. Besides the positive influence, we should pay more attention to the negative influence. (189 words)
