discussing a violent movie or game you watched or played as an adult that you know is pitched to kids?

Write a two to three page paper discussing a violent movie or game you watched or played as an adult that you know is pitched to kids?

Examine (but feel free to discuss other things):

• Did that game or movie adhere to or against any the moral schools of thought we’ve discussed?

• Do you feel the violence makes the game/movie more or less effective?

• Would the content be positively or negatively affected if the work was censored?

Use your readings as well as class screenings to justify and illustrate your points. Late papers will lose a letter grade for each day they are late.
