1. Chu, Amy. "Teen Movies as Sex Education Material? A Content Analysis of Popular Teen Movies in Four Decades" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p173202_index.html>

Abstract: Parents’ concern about prevalent sexuality in the media has always been a focal issue as their children may learn from the media messages, particularly during the children’s adolescent stage, a period of exploring the concept of sex. Addressing to this issue with an emphasis of movies as an all-time popular sex education source, the current study content analyzes and compares sexually explicit content and messages presented in a sample of top-grossing teen movies of 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000. The study also examines the thematic treatment of consequences and responsibility of sexual behaviors. The finding indicates that the amount of sexual behavior exceeded its talk-about-sex counterpart, and more than 60% of sexual behavior cases were overwhelmingly unmarried but 40% in fairly established relationship. Comparing types of sexual content, two-thirds of the samples in the 1970s and 1980s are sexual behavior, but talk-about-sex and sexual behavior share similar proportions among sexual content in the movies of the 1990s and 2000s. Moreover, sexual responsibility and consequence of sexual behavior are rarely mentioned in the sampled movies. Limitations of this study are also discussed.

2. Park, Eun-A., Koh, Yoon Jeon . and Kim, Jae Hong . "Why do they go to movie sites?: Motives and Activities of Internet Movie Site Users" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <PDF>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p13774_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This study examined the motives and activities of Internet movie sites users by applying the uses-and-gratifications perspective. Four motives (convenience, socialization, entertainment/diversion, and information) and two factors (information seeking and participation) in peripheral activities besides a movie watching behavior were discovered via factor analysis. The relationship between motives and movie watching behaviors showed that in general, while ‘convenience’ motive was the strongest predictor of Internet movie watching behavior, ‘socialization’ was a stronger predictor of the frequency of the behavior.

3. Park, Eun-A. "The Internet movie and its impacts on the windowing strategy of the movie industry" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, New Orleans Sheraton, New Orleans, LA, May 27, 2004 Online <.PDF>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p113187_index.html>

Abstract: Based on windowing theory, this paper examines the impact of the Internet movie on the windowing strategy of the motion picture industry. Whether Internet movie can be another significant distribution channel will eventually rely on whether Internet distribution will provide an additional and independent revenue stream without cutting into the pre-existing ones, or it will instead slice into and perhaps absorb one of the other models. The factors that influence the development of Internet movie as a new distribution conduit can be considered in multiple facets; Industry, consumer, technology, and legal/policy aspects. Industry side represents the cost and benefits of Internet movie, and the competition among video entertainment providers. Consumer adoption rate will depend on whether the new service is attractive enough in terms of convenience, quality and costs in spite of the demands of passive entertainment service. The most important limitation would be more or less slow penetration of broadband at home in the U.S. In technological aspect, Internet congestion and low quality of service would be one of the biggest challenges Internet movie faced. Also, Internet movie providers should be able to overcome many legal and political obstacles such as copyrights and patents debates.

4. Barriga, Claudia. and Shapiro, Michael. "Morality and Movies: What are People Thinking? A Content Analysis of Informal Movie Reviews Online" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p173122_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: It has long been assumed that movies can have an influence on moral development and moral thought. The content analysis presented here examines whether and how people who post informal reviews online think about moral issues related to the films, and how that fits with theories about moral development and the role of moral thoughts in entertainment. The results indicate that, in this context, conscious thoughts about moral issues are scarce, although they increase significantly when a movie is morally ambiguous. Most of the comments about moral issues reflect on the possible moral effects on others rather than on the self. This result casts some doubt on the assumption that films can be a tool for moral self-development. Other results show that moral comments about elements beyond the plot and characters (creators of the film, general audience and the world at large) are almost as frequent as those about the storyline, and that people use the level of moral complexity of a film to evaluate its overall quality. It would appear that the role of moral thoughts is more varied than previous theoretical models indicate. Future research in the area should perhaps incorporate considerations about moral ambiguity of a movie, moral thoughts beyond plot issues, and different roles that moral thoughts play in audience’s interpretations of movies.

5. Schneider, Frank. "The Importance of Being Challenged: Subjective Movie Evaluation Criteria and Entertainment Experiences with Challenging Movies" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, Phoenix, AZ, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p551568_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Audience evaluations of movies have often been explored from a gratifications perspective. Recent developments in social cognition research are focusing on associative and propositional mental processes (Gawronski & Bodenhausen, 2006), thus providing alternative ways to explain the underlying processes of evaluative responses, and thereby offering new chances to deepen our understanding about the structure and formation of subjective movie evaluations. This paper briefly reviews current social cognition perspectives on evaluative responses. In the light of the review’s results, the idea of subjective movie evaluation criteria (SMEC) is introduced. SMEC can be conceptualized as mental representations of attitudes towards specific movie features (e.g., photography, story) guiding and influencing the evaluative responses to movies. Findings from four studies examining the dimensionality of SMEC are provided. Furthermore, the moderating role of important SMEC for enjoying and appreciating challenging movies is discussed—also with regard to individual differences, cross-situational consistency, and related personality traits.
