Select two films made during different historical periods in order to compare and contrast the extent and type of violence depicted. Prepare a two- to three-page summary analysis presenting your findings and provide an explanation using one or more of the theoretical perspectives in the text. Clearly state your thesis and provide a rationale for your choice of perspective (e.g., explain why you chose differential association, containment theory, etc.) Your paper must meet APA formatting specifications. Examples of possible film comparisons are below – you may use any of these or choose your own: Hellcats of the Navy (1957) with Saving Private Ryan (1999): Look for the ways in which violence was portrayed in these two war movies; those made in the 1950s showed an explosion and then lifeless bodies strewn about, but with no detailed carnage; in today’s war films, the viewer is exposed to the actual effects of explosions, including the blood, the entrails, and the pain. You may decide the purpose for this more graphic and realistic view, as well as consider the extent to which each type of movie propagandized or realistically presented the violent realities of war. Hellcats of the Navy (1957) with Saving Private Ryan (1999): Students can look for the ways in which violence was portrayed in these two war movies;

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
