Full George segment tonight a big new movie called -- hunger games based on a best selling book by Suzanne Collins opens tomorrow film deals -- teenagers forced to kill each other.
As part of a brutal competition in the future.
The premium -- -- -- Want.
All right hunger games rated PG thirteen -- data analyze Tammy Bruce.
Who is in Los Angeles is evening -- Gretchen Carlson in Phoenix.
So long Carlson.
This these are phenomenons from people who own knowledge is a trilogy had these books where these kids try to fight for survival it's uninteresting concept I guess.
Some watchdog groups had very disturbing kids have nightmares and this and that but it is a PG thirteen rating and you -- I say it's PG thirteen because they want this to be a blockbuster this book and -- books were originally written for young adults.
In 2008 with ended up happening.
Is that they become all the rage for ten to fifteen year old.
I have friends who have kids in that age they do say that they do have nightmares from watching this not this is about America gone.
Totally a ride.
And it's all about survival and it's a reality show that show on live television -- kids are killing each other that's the point of this again another -- -- -- I'm definitely very.
Getting absolutely the violent underpinnings of the books and we assume the movie that opens tomorrow are the controversy and you say Tammy.
You know this is is very gladiator like this environment and -- hit it is that it's -- saying you know we're becoming desensitized to violence.
But in this film it's it's violence from child to child you know we thought we think about tween is in the young adult book market if -- parents are not -- creators.
They really don't have a sense necessarily of what this illness allows PG thirteen we know kids sometimes go alone.
But parents have got to be ready to have a conversation with their children because it's.
It's again it's one thing to see adult violence which is also very often too much.
But the this things in this involved spears and arrows and uninstall my -- and only -- commercial program but you know a lot of kids parents don't care.
There's a book the lord of the flies made into a movie British movie.
Violence kids against kids in it was there was an absolute message to that.
I want my my child to read lord of the flies I wanted to see that not on off the hunger games rises to that level.
-- -- In fact I would tell I just say this let me just say this bill I would I would like to add that some conservative critics are now saying that maybe this is a good message.
Because it's actually anti government.
And these conservative critics feel like we've got to my candidacy last seemingly -- message today you know deceive and cause I -- of the -- -- when there's a female heroine and and instead of being a damsel in distress.
She's actually out there doing something so there are some.
Things potentially about the move there are some benefits to -- it -- the other thing it but the difference -- -- in the book you know with books you're limited and actually you have to use your imagination that's what we want for kids.
When you talk about the lord of the flies the imagination is there and a lot of -- limited by your life experience.
When you put a child in front of the screen it's going to be an entirely different dynamic.
Because then it's just that imagery coming in -- I'm sure there's never -- down.
Because it would be an -- was really in your face violence are -- real quick on this one.
Nineteen states allow us spanking -- teachers can spank kids nineteen all right.
Alabama Arizona Arkansas Colorado Florida Georgia Idaho Indiana Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Mississippi Missouri.
North Carolina Oklahoma South Carolina Tennessee Texas and Wyoming and I think in Vermont -- allow the kids to battle the teachers it's a little liberal -- the others were.
Okay I only have a minute -- When you -- or against corporal punishment in school.
I don't think there's any place for this in school right now and especially in some of these states as some of -- the parents don't even have to know about it before their kids might not know you no corporal punishment.
He said -- don't agree with it.
Well lucky I think every parent doesn't want there at bureaucracy appear -- touching their child whether to remove that from a campus to have an abortion or to beat them up.
So I I think it's really about having it be in the parents' hands of course it's archaic and needs to go yeah I I don't see necessary former teacher I never -- and I -- -- It should be the kids out of control he got to isolate the -- in the school and you got -- -- parents right away get the -- definitely -- -- this is a way.
We can't have it but if you -- it is really accomplished much -- lays -- on my -- for.
