Grand Theft Childhood is a to be released book aimed at uncovering the truth and media hype concerning violent video games and kids.

In 2004, Drs. Lawrence Kutner and Cheryl K. Olson, co-founders and directors of the Harvard Medical School Center for Mental Health and Media, began a $1.5 million study funded by the U.S. Department of Justice on the effects of video games on young teenagers. In contrast to previous research, they studied real children and families in real situations

What they found surprised, encouraged, and sometimes disturbed them.

Check the Grand Theft Childhood Website their myths/facts page is quite an interesting teaser (and a very interesting page layout for designers to get some inspiration).

One of the best …fight scenes EVER is here:

The movie itself, Wheels On Meals, isn’t all that good, but I remember
this scene as being Jackie’s 2nd best, w/this one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBi2udFHY-Q

being his best.

I’m going to reenact the 1st scene in a rap video…

Although Drunken Master is the better choreographed and here we see when break dancing really came from, the speed on Wheels on Meals is amazing.

Play close attention to the use of sound queues when a punch made contact or when a punch was blocked.
