Don’t Believe The Hype!

Heard something recently that has really pissed me off…again….I know, it happens a lot.  It goes something like this….

Do teenage romance movies teach teenagers bad habits…..

……and here we go again.  Look I didn’t get the full story I will be honest, but the movie they were talking about was about a stalker dude kinda scenario.  For all the Gen Xers, I guess it would be like the Marky Mark movie Fear.  Remember this:

So the discussion was saying that these movies teach kiddies how to become all stalkerish ……really?  If that’s the case, what the fark does Hunger Games teach them?  Don’t we just love to blame something?  Movies, music, social media – what we should be doing is actually ….. wait for it……. actually…… talking to teens – yep there it is!  If a teen watches these movies and thinks this is normal behaviour, well they may be a little farked up.  If a teen watches a movies and can’t separate the movie from real life, well again, they may be a little farked up.

Movies should be an escape ya know?  It should be an experience.  The good, the bad and the ugly.  Sometimes we need to just escape reality and go on a trip just lose yourself for a couple of hours.  This is not really life.  This is not a ‘how to’ manual – it’s a movie.  Stop blaming movies, music and media – end of.

  1. Blame everything except the person seems to be the way it goes now. I didn’t need the movies to stuff my love life up, or lack of it. XD
