Movie Genres

Movie genre “is the term for any category of literature or other forms of art or entertainment,… music, whether written or spoken,… or visual, based on some set of stylistic criteria.”(wikipedia.com). These are the things that tell you how the movie will be set up, for example:  Action tells you there will be some sort of fighting scene, whether it is explosions, hand-to-hand combat, guns, etc.  And this is important because it is the “first impression” for the movie.  Anyways, genres will tell you the main theme of the piece whether it is in a movie, a book, or an art piece.  I interviewed five people: Emily C., Celeste C., Karly K., Camille D., and Sienna C. on March 20, 2014 for their opinion on their favorite movie genre, and this is what each of them said: Me: What is your favorite movie genre?movies
