  Cinematic genre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A "genre" generally refers to films that share similarities in the narrative elements from which they are constructed.
Many historians debate whether film noir truly is a genre rather than a style of film-making often emulated in the period's heyday.
As such, film genres are also useful in areas of marketing, criticism and consumption.

 Film Genres
By the end of the silent era, many of the main genres were established: the melodrama, the western, the horror film, comedies, and action-adventure films (from swashbucklers to war movies).
War films are often paired with other genres, such as action, adventure, drama, romance, comedy (fl), suspense, and even epics and westerns, and they often take a denunciatory approach toward warfare.
All films have at least one major genre, although there are a number of films that are considered crossbreeds or hybrids with three or four overlapping genre (or sub-genre) types that identify them.

 Welcome to Create Your Screenplay
Genres, well understood, provide the writer with compass bearings on the style, tone, character types, themes and structure that will enrich and direct the telling of the screen story.
The main point of this exercise is to provide a tool to understand, test, and define the different types of movies being made, and thus assist the writer to situate his or her own script in a workable combination of genres.
Discussing genres of movies might just be a way of describing the history of moviemaking—a method of grouping motion pictures for whatever convenient need arises for whatever individual or group.

 deseretnews.com - Movie review: 187 | Deseret Morning News Web edition
Add "urban school drama" to the quickly growing list of movie genres that should be temporarily retired, if not permanently put to sleep.
The genre actually began and peaked with 1955's "The Blackboard Jungle," but is currently enjoying a renaissance, due to films like "Stand and Deliver" and "Dangerous Minds." But less-original creations like the thriller "The Substitute" and the unfunny parody "High School High" offer proof that it may be tapped out permanently.
To his credit, Jackson almost saves the movie single-handedly, and for that — if not the remainder of his work — he deserves more than just one chance in a starring role.

A film genre is a rough categorization of films into genres, which describe the typical subject matter—what the film is about: Western films are about the American West, love stories are about love, and so on.
Of course, the more that genres are defined, the more likely that a filmmaker will try to combine, transcend and evade categories, so not every film can be neatly labeled.
Although Some styles are strongly associated with certain genres, a Style can be applied to any genre -- Barbarella is a surrealistic science fiction film, for example.
