What are the most popular types of films in your home country? It all depends on your cultural background and the type of movies you like to watch. For example, ‘Romantic feature films’ have received a great deal of support in India, and the stars are often national heroes. The fact that they are rarely shown on television may also contribute to their popularity. The films are also a way for people to escape from their deprived environment.
The most popular genres for movie-goers vary widely, with comedy and horror movies both proving popular in Sweden. The highest grossing films in 2016, for instance, were “Deadpool” and ‘The Revenant’. In Australia, the highest-grossing movies were the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy by Peter Jackson. In England, romantic comedies tend to be the most popular types of films, followed by action/adventure and drama.
Kiwis love both local movies and Hollywood movies. Young kiwis are more interested in action and comics, while older kiwis love classical films. Some notable New Zealand films are ‘Wolverine’, ‘The Last Samurai’, and ‘River Queen.’ New Zealand has also been the setting for some notable films. Some of the best films to be made in the country include The Last Samurai and King Kong.
Another popular genre is ‘crime’. These movies are characterized by a high level of gore, bloodshed, and violence. They are more often than not aimed at children, although they do contain a few adult themes, which are more appropriate for children. Despite the similarities, some movies are distinctly different from each other. If you’re in a genre-specific film club, you might want to consider the genre of films you enjoy.
