It arrives immediately, and chases away the robot cat. When you view these films, be open minded and aware that they were the first in a new medium. MovieZoot has a great search tool that lets you find movies by their genre, star, and/or director. James Woods is a seedy lowlife (really playing against type there, I know) looking for the Next Big Thing for his porn cable station. Richard Jaeckel (1926–1997), Jack Elam (1918–2003), Chill Wills (1903–1978), Paul Fix (1901–1983), and Slim Pickens (1919–1983) all appeared in countless westerns, so when they are in the same cast and many of them die in Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (Sam Peckinpah, 1973), the film may be read as being as much about the death of the genre as it is a story about particular characters.

Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by molluma (f): 3:28pm On Jul 02, 2006 i feel u seun. i hate bad endings enuf of that is happening in reality, why spoil fantasy. i love comedies but prefar thrillers. i dont mind horrors but i think action movies are over rated. The film-making conventions of a science fiction and action which is pretty much most of the comic books aswell use a lot of fast shots and quick cutting to convey action and the intent of conveying to the audience that acceleration of action within the editing.

Films which are made to show natural or mechanical disasters, with large death-tolls, that have befallen mankind. 8.)

Because of these roots, Hong Kong action films typically center on acrobatics by the protagonist while American action films typically feature big explosions and modern technology. They should be lounging by a pool, eating olives and drinking rose, but instead they're typing in vast and admirably adult rows of cubicles.

There has never been a screenplay quite like Charles Brackett and director Billy Wilder’s screenplay for their 1950 opus Sunset Blvd. Oftentimes that means employing deep focus photography, so the background of each shot becomes a source of suspense. Ravens and rottweilers are unaccountably drawn to angel-faced Damien, and anyone who starts asking questions – an innocent nanny, a crusading priest, a sceptical journalist – is knocked off in spectacular fashion.

Lovecraft, "the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." Peter Mullan is superbly cast as Gordon, the boss of an asbestos removal company tasked with clearing out an abandoned mental hospital. What is the path of ‘the way’ that the women seem to find? Though its first half easily out-classes its second there is enough existential dread and lonely urban ennui to secure its importance as a go-to example of shadowy lighting, paranoia, and romantic fatalism.
