Q1-a lot
Q2-no, at least not in theatrical releases. I feel violence is watered down too much now compared to where it used to be in the 1980s.
Q3-A, attracts me, out of curiousity
Q4-D, at least in my case
Q5-Hell no!
Q6-Tennessee

Q1: Do you like violent movies? → a lot
Q2: Do you think US movies are too violente→ no - same level and amount of movies as violent foreign movies
Q3: A violent movie: attracts me (if it's choreographed violence only)
Q4: Movie violence: the 4 choices aren't the only choices that exist. If anything, they can do all of what you said - educate against violence, inspire people to do violence, and/or serve as entertainment purposes
Q-5: no
Q-6: new york

Q1: Medium
Q2: No. Fiction is fiction, and the MPAA (along with trailers, reviews and plot summaries) sees to it that people know what to expect from their fiction going in.
Q3: C, Don't care. It's not a deciding factor in what I see or don't see.
Q4: D, Sells tickets. Again, it's fiction. Violence is a plot device like any other. Nobody asks whether romance in films causes people to spontaneously fall in love..
Q5: Fuck no.
Q6: Texas

You want US Citizens only because you want to play into the stereotype that Americans only like violent movies?

Q1: Do you like violent movies? a lot
Q2: Do you think US movies are too violente→/no…why?
this is just my opinion. i have a very high tolerance level so it'll take alot to be violent. in the end, it's just a movie, and notthing is real. i suppose to the typical viewer some may be violent because they've seen nothing like it.
Q3: A violent movie A-attracts me
Q4: Movie violence
D-sells ticked, no other impacts
Q-5: If you had the power to do so, would you bane all movie violence? no
Q-6: the State you live in please, texas

motion picture violence isn't a problem in and of itself. only its context has a potential to be a problem. to answer your questions, i'd have to do so for every violent film i've seen. given the options for Q4, i can see where each answer (educates us on our society, helps prevent violence by showing the consequences, encourages violent behavior, sells tickets, no other impacts) could be true or false under different circumstances relating to intent, context, audience, etc. why not try writing a paper on that?

6) Hollywood, USA! The Dream Factory!

Would a person from Puerto Rico be pissed off if you called him a Mexican?
