I'm assuming 5 is what "fantasy" is supposed to mean for the purposes of genre distinction. so no docu actually fits that description - not that I care. I just figured docus on sfx and other similar specials that I'd never bother to dl were in the docu seciton but people were posting crap from michael moore or the march of penguins. (although most of the good stuff is on companion discs and released in movie threads anyway, I guess)
1-3 define every work of art ever created
and 4 seems to specifically target sci-fi & fantasy (except fantasy has its own genre def in 5)
basically (since sci-fi is a given, you don't even need to concern yourself with 4), you have to adhere to 5, or every movie ever made is fantasy because it is a work of art, and art is fictional/representational (i.e., unreal and products of a person's imagination),
yeah yeah, I'm way late. but it felt like a good thought. :-o
edit: it was funny to read the indiana jones/romancing the stone possibiities, cuz (don't remember the latter) indy is</i> fantasy (genre def. 5), but it's action-adventure first, then fantasy. and by the time you get to the third frackin' (sub)category, it's time to move along, dude. like me from this thread.
Life ducks, and you sigh.
