Gender VS Genre

However, from the previous post in which myself and tyler conducted an interview with three students, a male said that his favorite genre of film was in fact rom com. This proves that not everyone will fit into the stereotypes of correlation between gender and genre of a film.

“Men’s films” tend to focus more on action, sex (rather than romance) and competition.”
Results of the Fischoff (1994) study indicated that the most popular film genres were, in order of ranking,
