As people pointed out during the 9-11 incident, little children whose parents didn't prevent them from seeing it over and over on television were made terribly afraid because they couldn't quite understand that it was not a continuing thing. When I was a young adult, the news didn't report every "juicy" crime that occurred in the world over and over and over like they do today. One gets the feeling that violent crime is just around every corner 24/7, but it isn't, and I refuse to listen to stories about crimes that weren't committed on my street in order to avoid "becoming" my grandmother.
I have liked some films that were violent, though, but not in an enjoyment-of-violence kind of way; it was more in spite of the violence. And "Dexter" is a guilty pleasure.
'tis strange I should be old and neither wise nor valiant. From "The Maid's Tragedy" by Beaumont & Fletcher
