Who are the People rating movies? Parents can determine if they want to allow their children to watch certain movies by using the film rating system. The film rating system went into effect on November 1, 1968. Even though the decision of whether or not to use the film rating system is voluntary, the vast majority of theaters in The United States enforce the Classification and Rating Administration’s guidelines. This was a voluntary system sponsored by the Motion Picture Association of America and the National Association of Theatre Owners.
With this program, moviemakers voluntarily gave their movies one of four general ratings: "G" for general audience, all ages admitted; "PG" for parental guidance suggested; "R" for restricted audience, with no one under 17 admitted unless accompanied by an adult; and "X" for no one under 17 admitted at all. Television came about in the 1950’s. Unlike the movies, the government regulates television because it is transmitted over the airwaves, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Communications Commission. The reason for this is because there are only a limited number of frequencies that can be used for broadcasting and the Federal Communications Commission controls the rights to use them by issuing licenses to television stations. Under this law, these licenses must be renewed every three years.
The new V-chip legislation passed be Congress requires all TV manufactures to install an electronic device that allows parents to set the tolerance levels for violence, profanity, and nudity. However, are children's viewing habits the responsibility of the government or the parents? There are several arguments that can be made on censorship on TV. One for example, what the pro's for censorship? What are the con's?
The turnout for young voters has always been the lowest of all age ranges. Before the voting age was eighteen, it was twenty-one. The main argument that started this amendment was that since you can fight in the war at eighteen, you should be able to vote at that age too. While that point is valid, it has also been pointed out that young adults are “more susceptible to manipulation either by their parents” or by the politicians use of media ("Voting”). That is very true.
The movie rating system is used continuously throughout America ever since it was created by the National Association of Theatre Owners and Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA replaced the Federal Censorship. The system was created so that parents will be able to know what their kids are watching and if it is appropriate for their age. There is a rating board that the movie goes through which decides if a movie is suitable for a child, and parent’s makeup the staff of the board. To rate a movie the main areas scrutinized for is language, nudity, theme, sex, drug and violence.

Computers Evolvement in Education Picture rows of students all of different ages, having different knowledge and scholastic aptitudes, all in one classroomäwith one teacher. This is the late 1700s when the teacher was the sole manager and source of knowledge in the classroom. Not until two hundred years later in 1951 did the slightest bit of outside technology enter the classroom when the television was first used as a classroom instructional aid. In the middle of the Cold War, President Eisenhower passed the National Defense Education Act of 1958, bringing more money into the countryπs schools to purchase new technology such as mainframe host computers. The problem was that many school systems were stuck to their ways, and insisting on continuing use of the 1700s-style instructional teaching method.
One invention that poses a threat to kids is television because it provides people with an excuse to avoid their problems. For kids, it is often an escape from homework, and for adults it is a way to escape job pressures and family stress. It is an invention that destroys the concept behind the "family table" because it no longer brings families together, but rather it destroys their relationships with one another. When the television was first invented it was advertised as an innovation that brought families together to spend quality time with each other. Although in present day, "three quarters of all American families [ ] own two or more sets" (Winn, 217), on which "Mom [is] watching a drama in the kitchen, the kids [are] looking at cartoons in their bedroom, and Dad [is] taking in the ball game in the living room" (217).
The Day the earth stood still would have been made entirely for people to watch in the cinema meaning the audience would have been sat there watching it, however when 20th century fox made independence day they knew that the film would be watched on other formats such as DVD or video. This meant that they had to draw in the audience so that they would not turn over the channel or change the video. A good example if the way they have done this is by making the title sequence shorter and placing the credits at the end. 20th century fox have succeeded in recycling an old genre using modern methods and concepts, by altering the narrative to make two completely different stories, yet very similar movies.
We decided to make an original poster for the movie Taken 2. We chose this movie because we wanted to bring awareness and reality of international and domestic abduction to parents, college students, and teenagers. Each year, the rate of abductions slightly increases because many people believe that it is impossible for them to be held captive. Taken 2 presented some real life situations that could help keep seizings at a lower rate by teaching people to be cautious of their surroundings. To get a large percentage of our audience to view our movie poster, we will hang them in areas that families, teens, and college students often visit, like boards in community centers, college student centers, and most importantly malls.
