Movie genre lists or categorizes a movie or film according to its storyline. It is essential to have this form of classification for the sake of movie making as well as audience selection and appreciation. In the event you wish to pick a movie of certain flair, are you not grateful that someone thought up this method to make your life a little easier? Instead of wading through a pool of choices, you can immediately narrow down your selection and be out of the video store in two shakes. In the technological age, the same is said when picking a movie to watch online.
Most movies rarely exist as single genre as the audience is a finicky crowd. Similar to a baseball game, they are not made up of a single group of fans. Some have other motives to be present such as the atmosphere, ballpark foods or simply to eyeball their favorite sports star. As such, the movie genre list may be an essential element to an actor’s career as he would want to cover as many bases as possible. Although he stars in numerous films of a certain genre, his target audience remains the same as many people may not be adventurous or interested enough to try new styles of movies. Normally a die-hard action movie fan stays in his corner and would not be caught dead in a chick flick. Those in favor of classical black and white offerings may not join the science fiction crowd. By putting oneself in uncomfortable settings, it is also a chance to push one’s ability and talent to the limit in movie making. Sometimes the actor reaps rewards, other times a box office disaster.
As movie producers try to outdo one another and come up with the newest and latest to whet the audience’s appetite, more genres are created and added to the list. Perhaps the producer or actor’s climatic career is reached when his or her name makes the movie genre list. Alternatively, they can always get the local eatery to name a sandwich after them.
