Hey everyone, Cracked did an article about the MPAA and it is a great 101 summary.
Everyone who likes my blog and media studies talk should go read it right now.
YEAH! While we were in class, we spent a lot of time talking about how genre came to be and we noticed that it’s mostly an archiving tool for people film critics and film historians who were trying to find meaningful patterns. which, hey, that’s useful, but the attitude that we employ in talking about film and genre is just…not helpful, because it’s ultimately extremely restrictive.
there was also something about film studios using genre specifically to market, which makes sense; screwball comedy was invented to define the film “My Man Godfrey,” but i ultimately thing that there are some flaws in using genre strictly in that manner too.
Yssss. The (assumed/intended) connection between genre and demographic can be all kinds of terrible for the writing/production, tje marketing, and on the audience/consumer end.
Plus there’s the issue of conflating genre and medium, as with animation/anime.
entirety of 2015 movies are Hercules, Hercules sequels, and Hercules remakes
