I am conducting a survey on movie violence for my Sociology class. I am trying to determine whether or not real life violence is related to movie violence, and if so, in what way and to what extent. All I need is for you guys to answer these 15 questions. You may elaborate on any of them. Also, feel free to make this a discussion thread, but if you do, please take the time to complete the survey first. Thanks for any and all help. For the purposes of this survey, lets consider a "violent movie" as any movie that is rated R for violence. If you are unsure of the rating, just use your best judgment. 1. What is your age? 2. What is your sex? 3. What is your race? 4. What percentage of the movies you watched in the last month was violent? (Estimate if necessary) 5. What percentage of the movies you watched in the last year was violent? 6. What percentage of movies you own is violent? 7. If you had the choice, would you rather watch a violent or non- violent movie (if no other deciding factors came into play) 8. When you witness on-screen violence, what is your immediate reaction? 9. Do you feel any more aggressive immediately after viewing a violent movie? 10. How likely are you to imitate a violent act you saw in a movie? Use a scale of 1-10, 1 being extremely unlikely, 10 being extremely likely. 11. From your experience, do you believe that movies have the ability to make a person act out more aggressively than he or she otherwise would? 12. Have you ever committed a violent act? (Giving an example is not necessary, but feel free to do so) 13. Do you ever see violence on the news and are reminded of a movie with a similar scenario? 14. Do you believe that film directors base elements of their films (plot, characters etc) on real life events? 15. If you answered "yes" to #14, do you believe that those real life events are more likely to be incorporated into a film if they are violent in nature? Thanks for your help!
