Disney movies have been the leading outlets for child education and social learning. Due to such power of influence controversies have been raised which include the following, but not limited to, gender roles and stereotypes, issues of independence, and misrepresentation. Many people argue that despite the morals and messages that occur within such films there are still underlying messages that deal with beauty standards and norms. However, others may argue that Disney is evolutionary and evolved the imagery of male/female standards. The controversy then becomes: are Disney films doing more harm than they are good? Due to certain themes brought on by such movies, it has left younger audiences with both positive and

Many people assumed that you need to have a reason to do something in your life. In My whole life I have heard that you could do anything you want in your life it’s your choice what to do and not to do, don’t let anyone to choose for you or manage. Although I agree with Shaun Callarman what he says about Chris McCandless “Really, I think he was just plain crazy.” But I cannot accept his overall conclusion that Mccandless “He had no common sense, he had no business going to Alaska with his Romantic silliness.” I may agree, as Shaun Callarman may not realize, that Chris has freedom to do what he did in his journey and his life. He chose what he did and he maybe didn’t know what he was going through, but he just wanted

In the book, The Red Queen, the author Matt Ridley claims that men find women’s ratio of waist width-to-hip width attractive (Ridley 292). It was observed by Physiologist Dev Singh who argued that a man will find a woman extremely attractive as long as her waist is much thinner than her hips (Ridley 292). In addition, this ratio is also hints if a woman is childbirth potential (Ridley 292). Throughout human time, this waist-to-hip ratio theory has changed on what is preferable (Bovet and Raymond 1). However, this sexual attraction is still a trait that influences men’s mate preference (Bovet and Raymond 1). I also found that a woman’s waist-to-hip ration also provides information about a woman’s age, and health (Bovet and Raymond 1). Overall,

Movie reviewer Roger Ebert of RogerEbert.com writes, “Both Dan and Ben have elements in their characters that come under test in this adventure. Dan fears he has lost the confidence of wife Alice (Gretchen Mol) and teenage son Will (Logan Lerman), who doubt he can make the ranch work. The son Will, who has practically memorized dime novels about Ben Wade, idealizes the outlaw, and when Dan realizes the boy has followed the posse, he is not pleased. Wade intuits, however, that the boy is following him, and not his father. That's an insight into Wade. He plays his persona like a performance. He draws, reads, philosophizes, is incomparably smarter than the scum in his gang.” (Ebert)

Many young children grow up watching Disney films. Many parents do not think that these movies could have a negative impact on their children. Henry Giroux, who wrote the book, “The Mouse that Roared: Disney and the End of Innocence” is a firm believer that Disney films have a negative impact on the children that watch them. For several generations Disney films have been a huge part of children’s lives, but many parents do not realize how these films can negatively impact their children. Disney films can teach young children stereotypes, how to deal with life events such as death and they can learn negative ideas and values from these films.

Thus, many adults had a problem with this movie. The movie is addressed to not only children but adults as well. My adults are stubborn and don’t like things that are not how they see it. These parents have metathesiophobia. Also, those adults believe that the kids should not be watching these types of movies that shows them how to be rebellious. These parents focus on the parts of the movie that were irrelevant like how Elsa ran away. Other adults who see the positive difference between the old Disney movies and the new Disney movies encourage their kids to watch it and recommend other parents to watch it with their kids. It is parents like those who have helped changed the perspective of the medias role in our socialization. Media has always been negative towards women and the role they have in the world. But movies like “Brave” and “Frozen” are helping change those perspective in a positive way.
In order to establish a group that censors televisions and movies, the Motion Picture Producers Association (MPAA) was created. Each rating category has a description of the appropriate age at which to view the film and whether or not a parent’s accompaniment is necessary. The Motion Picture Producers Association assesses a film and gives it a rating of G (general audiences), PG (parental guidance suggested), PG-13 (parents strongly cautioned), R (restricted), or NC-17 (no one under seventeen admitted). As the film industry has been changing over time, so have the ratings. More and more parents are having issues with the ratings that some films are issued. “The man behind the ratings, Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), says the system works just fine. ‘Parents use it and trust it, and that's why it's lasted for almost 35 years,’ Valenti says. ‘It warns parents in advance about what's in a particular movie, but ultimately, parents are responsible for the behavior and conduct of their children — not the ratings system’ (Hansen 273).”
