I'd like to know more information about your topic.  Are you focusing on children, teens, or adults?  By 'bad influence' are you analyzing violence/crime, sexuality, drug use, decreased family time due to time devoted to watching movies?  I would suggest narrowing this topic down so your research is more focused.

You can find articles in our databases located on our A-Z list of databases.  I use EBSCOhost when I'm starting out, click the box for select/deselect all, then hit continue. I searched on children AND violence AND movies but you might try various keywords and synonyms to find the most relevant results.

I found several promising articles with this search. One title was Exposure of US Adolescents to Extremely Violent Movies.

So, I'd recommend narrowing your topic down a bit, picking keywords out of your narrowed down topic, and trying EBSCOhost to find articles.  Keep in mind that it may take some browsing and editing of your keywords to find the best articles. If you have any other questions or need more help, feel free to stop by one of our libraries.
