<div class="SimklTVProfileBioTextNoBio">I'm not as consistent as I'd like, but these are my rating and tagging guidelines. It's a WIP. A media should be rated within its own genre, where both a drama movie and a comedy show should be able to get a 10 if deserved. The question then becomes on how deep, smart, and artistic that media was.
\------------- CATEGORIES \------------- I've rewritten this a number of times already but the current idea is as follows: a media ideally has one _genre_ and one _setting_ and some optional _flavour_. However it's almost impossible not to have some shows not have multiple genres (eg: GoT vs LotR, they're both adventure but the first is also drama. Or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon which is action and romance). I'm using the memo field of an entry to write down the categories info.
GENRE: --- #biography (ie: biography of modern figure, not historical) (eg: The Imitation Game, Kinsey) --- #documentary (eg: Tiger King) --- #comedy (ie: adult comedies) (eg: Hangover) --- #family (ie: family comedies, holidays seasons movies, animations) (eg: Zootopia, Shrek, Totoro) --- #romance (eg: Her, The Lobster) --- #horror (eg: Color Out of Space) --- #adventure (ie: focus on exploration, quests and mystery in a fantasy or exoticized setting) (eg: Hellboy, X-Men, LotR, Game of Thrones, The Matrix) --- #action (ie: focus on battles, explosions, chases, combat in a real setting) (eg: Ip Man, Braveheart, Outlaw King, Blood Diamond, Die Hard, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Apocalypto) --- #thriller (ie: dark, engrossing, and suspenseful plot-driven stories; plot twists; characters in physical danger; keeps you on the edge of your seat) (eg: Utopia, Breaking Bad, Fight Club) --- #drama (ie: focus on dialog; when other genres don't fit; emotional conflict; dialectics; ethics) (eg: The Shawshank Redemption, Ex Machina)
SETTING: --- #present (ie: 20th century to present) (eg: The Shawshank Redemption, Fight Club, American Beauty) --- #crime (eg: drug trafficking, gangsters, murder mystery) (eg: Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Godfather) --- #history (ie: ancient, medieval, early & late modern) (eg: Gladiator, Braveheart, The Last Samurai, Black Sails, The Prestige) --- #fantasy (eg: LotR, Harry Potter) --- #scifi (eg: Blade Runner, Matrix, District 9, Ex Machina) ------ #military (eg: Starship Troopers, Disctrict 9, Predator, Aliens) ------ #space (ie: space and aliens) (eg: Star Trek, Alien) ------ #cyberpunk (ie: robots, AI, hackers) (eg: Matrix, AI) ------ #postapoc (eg: The Road, Mad Max) ------ #dystopian (eg: Children of Men, Black Mirror) ------ #timetravel ------ #alternate (ie: alternate timelines) (eg: steampunk, Sherlock Holmes) --- #martial (ie: focus on martial arts, like kung fu or boxing) (eg: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Fearless, Ip Man, Undisputed) --- #war (ie: modern war from 20th century to present) (eg: Band of Brothers) --- #western (eg: The Good the Bad and the Ugly)
FLAVOUR or THEMES: --- #addiction (eg: drug addiction) --- #arthouse (ie: aims to be a serious artistic work rather than a piece of popular entertainment) --- #animation (ie: stop motion or hand made animation; excludes 3D CGI) (eg: Totoro, The Corpse Bride, Wallace and Gromit) --- #asian (ie: asian movies or with a strong asian theme) (eg: Handmaiden, Last Samurai) --- #bmovie (ie: smaller budget, lower production values, cult or pulp movies) --- #erotic (ie: with adult content) (eg: The Handmaiden) --- #mindbender (ie: cerebral with unexpected turns or ending) --- #political (ie: documentaries about politics, conspiracies, spy games, special interest, economy) --- #social (ie: documentaries about socio-cultural aspects, eg: religion, business, persona) --- #sliceoflife (ie: fiction depicting mundane experiences and a natural representation of real life) --- #science (ie: documentaries about science or nature) --- #short (ie: short movies under 30m)
