Film is a Powerful Form of Art

Researchers have found some amazing way to influence people with the use of film and movies. Curing them of their fears and shyness is just a small sample. So many parents are afraid to talk about porn with their kids… are you?


Years ago I went to the movie theater and watched American History X. The opening scene is one that changed the way I watch movies forever.  If you have seen the film you know what I'm talking about. I was traumatized by that movie for years and year to come… needless to say I have never seen another violent movie in a theater again. I knew I had to be very very careful of what I put inside of my brain because it never comes out!
