Not one of these films made the Top 25 lists of Asians, Whites, or Latinos. This ‘Star Trek’ is a blistering rollercoaster of a film, rocketing from set-piece to set-piece and having a barrel of in-jokey laughs reinventing the iconic characters we know and love. This shared history means that every genre film is in dialogue with films before it, and that dialogue is enriched by the longevity the form earns in the cultural imagination.

So, after I'd secured my data, I called up Netflix's PR liaison, a Dutch guy named Joris Evers who keeps a miniature windmill on his desk. Actually, why not just add a new Flash Gordon movie into the mix? Or you can have it count the appearance of all 3-word phrases that begin with "from" and that would output the top decades in Netflix genres, with the 1980s rightfully and expectedly on top. Coming-of-age drama deals with heavy themes.

We will say that "The Empire Strikes Back" can be the starting point. Luckily, I'm here to fix that issue in my patented "scream at the problem until it goes away or you get arrested" method. The make-up technician was called Screaming Mad George. Here's a few more great movies in the steampunk genre, some of which I've seen and others which I haven't got round to seeing yet, but which have been acclaimed by other Steampunk fans!

Melissa Larsen has authored the screenplay. The result is wickedly smart and knowingly in-jokey without ever (ahem) alienating the non-nerds. A Trip to the Moon in its Original 1902 Colors is a gorgeous example of film recovery and restoration. Horror, romance, drama, comedy, and science fiction are genres with distinct and specific characteristics. Every shot is lovingly crafted and there are some beautiful landscapes - as one might expect from a DoP.

With ‘ Repulsion ’, ‘ Rosemary’s Baby ’ and finally this Paris-set film, the Polish director proved himself a master of turning the humble flat into frightening domestic terrain. The story follows three men who enter the mysterious and guarded Zone, nursing dreams of wish-fulfillment, but that’s hardly what the movie is ‘about’. Read the link above and discuss how The Godfather depicts the gangster genre and represents in the American Dream. 2.

However, even surrounded by his loyal henchmen and guards in his sectioned off fortress, Balam doesn't know Jack is coming for him to avenge his family, whom Balam murdered in cold blood. That the savages are depicted as humans (Oms) and the civilised people as unblinking blue aliens (Draags) makes it clear where René Laloux’s sympathies lie, and plot-wise the film is rather flimsy polemical stuff. Biographies such as Ray (2004), and Walk the Line (2005) are informative films on the lives of people in history.
