In Japan the word for God is "It". In the movies "it", is what makes the movie.

It is what it is?


Sex sells. It's a game of supply and demand. Teens and young adults relate to these types of movies because this is how spring break is. The honest truth is that outside small religious groups sex, drugs, and alcohol are the norm

I don' know what "IT" is, but what ever it is, we are attracted to it.

I have 5 daughters. My younger ones have grown up watching these actresses on Disney. I think that it is sad to see the transformation from more wholesome entertainment to raunchy entertainment. And yet it is no great surprise. If we live in a world where money is the great motivator, morals are seen as outdated, and creativity is viewed as being willing to see how shocking and contrary to the previous moral standards a movie can be, then why are we surprised that the little starlets turn into out of control adult stars. If we live in a society that is happy to dump all of our previous civilized rules and morals, what do we expect? We glamourize celebrities and follow them obsessively. Maybe it would be better if we all got real lives. It's a shame to see truly talented actresses like Hannah Montana and Lindsay Lohan self-destruct when they enter the "adult" world of entertainment. If we as a society value this the most, we truly are headed for a major disaster.
