    If i'd made a Spoof film, it would be very succesful.
    And if i'd made a Western film, it would be starred by Scott Eastwood, with his father Clint Eastwood in a secondary role.

    Musicals died out? Lucky if we get one a year? Just within the past year and a half we've had Beauty and the Beast, Mamma Mia 2, Moana, Jungle Book, Greatest Showman, and La La Land. Les Mis, Frozen, and Into the Woods weren't too long ago. Wicked, Dumbo, Aladdin, Lion King, Pocahontas, and Mulan are all coming out soon enough.
    But you don't have Biblical films, which really ARE one every few years (and a good one even more infrequently), or epics? Titanic is the last time there was an epic film released. What about gangster films?

    Western dead? It is said that it died 1960s but they made some of the best films back then. I think it will never die but it can go under the radar. People should watch more westerns since they are genuine with a little GCI mostly.

    I think YA is far from dying out, maybe they don't get the attention things like THG or divergent got but there is a line up of films coming out.
    This year: Love, Simon (adaptation of Simons vs. the homosapiens agenda), Everyday came out a few weeks ago I believe, The Darkest Minds comes out in september, Anthem (adaptation of Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet), The miseducation of Cameron Post came out on Sundance this year. The hate you give adaptation is supposed to come out this year.
    i'm sure there are more that I'm missing.

    10. Only like a few of them, know a few of them. But actually don't really like them. To long, to much music, just do know it's not there anymore.
    9. Don't know these ones. Don't care about them\
    8. I LOVE SAW! I cannot wait for a new one. Some copycats are good to, but only SAW is the master in this genre.
    7. I only like these in certain moods. Not now. A lot of good movies have come out. And still on the Dutch tv each week there is a special day for these kinds of movies. Won't miss them however.
    6. Not sure about this one.
    5. I love slashers. Thought this was fitting for Saw to?
    4. Only Cloverfield is GOOD. All other movies I didn't see.
    3. I WANT MORE PARODY FILMS. I really love them!
    2. Never seen this ones.
    1. Don't like these ones, never did.
    Lucky disaster movies haven't died out yet xD Or car movies.

    Number 1 should be court room dramas. With the passing of legendary director Sidney Lumet, the genre just died. The last good court room drama films were Find me guilty (2006)by Lumet and The Lincoln lawyer (2011). I would also include Psychological thrillers and Gangster films in the list.

    My problem with found footage movies is that I can't believe for a second that you can run for your life and still get such a clear footage. When people in real life is running and recording at the same time, they always get a lot of senseless images. Sorry, I just can't.

      They're not the box office blockbusters they were in the '90s, when rom-coms like PRETTY WOMAN and SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE often made the list of Top Ten highest-grossing films of the year. Nowadays, that list is populated by superhero/CGI extravaganzas and 3D animation. Thus, the big studios don't invest in rom-coms anymore.

    Better Bogart examples would be THE MALTESE FALCON, THE BIG SLEEP, etc.TH&HN is more of a war time action/adventure story with a fairly happy ending.

    I really don't get how you classify the young adult genre. It's like saying "these movies/books are now randomly for a certain age group" or something. It totally undermines the importants of some of those works, and might just scare off older viewers. It's just so darn sad to see humanity always wanting to group stuff together bacause they're faintly related. I get stuff like "horror" or "romance", even though genres aren't set in ston and can be interpreted differently by each peron. "Crimson Peak" might be a horror film with romance in it, for instance, but some might see it as a romantic film with horror elements.

    I want more westerns dammit! In grade school I was mad at Brisco County Jr’s cancellation. How about a motion picture? It may not have Lord Bowler after Julius Carry’s passing 😞, but I’d sure love to see that
    Trey Parker & Matt Stone may still have a musical up their sleeves, I still haven’t seen Book of Mormon (but love the soundtrack).
    Michael Myers maybe older than Jason Voorhees, but older than them is Leather Face. I did enjoy the TCM remake, but the previous 2 films were so bad by comparison (I just liked the first two flicks in the original run). Hated the remake to Friday the 13th, despite having The Mentalist’s Amanda Righetti ❤️. I liked the Halloween remake more than I thought I would. I didn’t bother with A Nightmare on Elm Street remake. Anyone can play Jason or Michael, there’s only one Robert Englund
