Action Crouching Tiger
Adventure Bourne Trilogy
Comedy Duck Soup
Crime/Gangster In Bruges
Drama Birdman
Horror Alien
Musicals Cabaret
Sci-Fi Moon
War/Anti-War Paths of Glory
Chick Flicks Chicken Run
Disaster Koyaanisqatsi

...genres are difficult!

In Bruges is a sad, funny, guy movie that features gangsters and has adventure to go with the drama, a bit surreal, and overall a real cult classic. Epic!
