Just wondering - what is worse enjoying a movie with explicit violence or sex. Anciently in Israel the Israelites were condemned for indulging in the “entertaining” part of the religion of Baal. Most Christians agree that the religion of Baal was evil thought few know anything about it – the epoch of Baal is rather interesting and the main message really is not that different from Hunger games.
In most cases I would say that sexual entertainment is worse, because most of us will struggle with on-going tempting thoughts weeks and months after the initial viewing. Most violent movies are so over-the-top ridiculous that we have no on-going thoughts of blowing up the bad guys or dishing out some five-knuckle justice. So, from the perspective of avoiding lust (whether for violence or sex) I'd suggest that sexually provocative entertainment is worse.
There are some cases where these may be flipped. Additionally, I could understand how those who have engaged in combat might find violence entertainment particularly offensive.
If violence is used to tell a story that is real and has depth and thoughtfulness to it, I am admittedly permissive. If the story is a mere excuse for the violence, then I am more inclined to urge caution.
Some here even thought the Passion of the Christ was violence entertainment. I found it a shocking and realistic meditation on Christ's suffering.
With the Hunger Games, the actual violence was not so great. What is difficult is the very idea of kids fighting to the death. That idea is either provocative for its potential to actually happen, or it is outside the realm of decent thought. I found the danger of too possible to ignore.
