Hollywood Should Stop Doing This
There are many things that Hollywood should stop doing but one of the things that I feel that Hollywood should absolutely stop doing is romanticizing criminal characters. Movies like Clockwork Orange, Public Enemies, The Godfather, all the Fast & Furious movies and now the latest that I found out is Black Mass which stars one of my favorite actors, Johnny Depp.
What these movies do is make the criminal characters seem brave and casting a famous and popular actor as the criminal make the audience want to identify with the unsavory character. Young teens who are impressionable watching this kind of movies would eventually come to think that being a criminal is cool. And people wonder why the crime rate is going up.
I therefore feel that Hollywood should stop making such movies and make more movies that highlight real heroes (not superheroes movies). I want real heroes from real life. That is what I think Hollywood should be doing. The people in Hollywood has the power to reach millions of people and they should use this power to spread love, peace and harmony in the world and not creating future criminals to make movies about.
