Epic and Disaster : Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

Why are they mashed together here, when "Star Trek" gets its own board under "Film: General"? Sorry, folks: Gone With the Wind and The Towering Inferno are as different as apples and squids.

Re: Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

i was really miffed to finally get a disaster board and see it pre-obfuscated with unrelated crap

Re: Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

Well, at least we can agree that in this case, segregation might be the right answer. The genres are totally unrelated--why not mix "Westerns" with "Nature Films" because lots of John Ford movies have shots of the outdoors?

Re: Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

Except claudius has the rights of it -- "epic" and "disaster" aren't the same thing at all.



You might very well think that. I couldn't possibly comment.

Re: Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

Towering Inferno and Poseidon Adventure (original) are epics.

Re: Huh? Epic and Disaster Are NOT the Same Genre

I can see that. One could say that all disaster movies are epics but not all epics are disaster movies. Or are there disaster movies that somehow are not an epic as well?

What do you mean? Apples And Squids Are Both Edibles That Play Important Roles In Mythology. Therefore Apples And Squids Are Both Edible Myths: the same.
