The Breakdown of the Fallen Genres

The superhero movie is without a doubt the biggest and most successful genre right now, but that wasn't always the case and history says that won't be the case in the future. Even the biggest genre making enough money to cover a small island eventually runs out of steam. This week we look at genres that were once the box office powerhouse that now are either small niches or completely gone as big studio fare. We look at a genre that at its heights was bigger than the superhero genre ever has been in the Western. We also look at two types of comedies in the team-up and the parody. If you want blockbusters, then very little ever got bigger than the sweeping historical epic. It isn't a genre show without a little horror, so we also talk about found footage movies. This is a real fun show if you enjoy a look back at history and we also have a slew of movie recommendations for you. Thank you so much for listening to the show and if you love it, then please spread the word.
