Things I’ve learned from American movies

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Recently I’ve started to notice how media shapes us, the way we think, the way we feel, the way we see the world.

And I think what we consume is so important since it shapes what gets to come out of us.

And so I started to think about books, music, movies and pointed out lessons that I’ve got from each. And how they have shaped how I see the world, what I know about the world, what I think about certain people and etc.

This is gonna be a series because I’ve watched movies from India, Nigeria, Korea, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa and so many other countries, I hope you also share in the comments things you have learned from movies from these places as well.

Today I’m gonna start with American movies since I’ve consumed a lot of Hollywood products, and from them here is what I’ve learned about America, the world and life in general;

– Don’t mess with America, or any other country, Americans will come after you

– Young people in their twenties live however they want (irresponsibly) and still get to achieve their dreams.

– Americans think about saving the world a lot and they get to do that because everywhere else in the world is trash and so they bring justice.

– America is the most powerful nation in the world, they have resources, they see what everyone from everywhere is doing, they are powerful, no other country compares to her.

– It’s hard for black people in America.

– Americans are sexually liberated.. One night stand is just a normal thing. And you can watch sex scenes with your family I guess cause most movies have them

– There is so much pressure when it comes to beauty.

– They are adventurous, they leave everything behind to go and discover themselves or just go wherever.

– Americans love and are advanced in technology and robotics

– Americans are obsessed with how the future will look like.

– The terrorist are usually Russians, from the Middle East and sometimes Africa.

– The Middle East has a lot of issues especially with their leadership and America is always giving a helping hand to the opposing sides so that they can solve the issues / overtake the government.

Okay, those are some of the lessons that I’ve learned from Americans movies, that I could come up with for this post.

I know there are so many lessons, so share with me what you have learned from American movies as well.
