It was an old Marx Brothers film... At the Circus. Funny thing when I downloaded the profile there was no musical or music in the genre for that one. I did add musical to it locally.

OK... just out of dumb curiosity. I watched a movie that lasted an hour and a half. While there is music... there is not a lot. Maybe a total of 3 or 4 songs. 2 Definitely replace dialog... characters just singing out of no where. Then another 1...maybe 2 where they are putting on a show.

Would YOU consider this a musical or no?

For a brief moment there I forgot how subjective genres are. Think I will just decide for myself and just save it locally... not worry about the online.

This is something I thought I had a handle on until I downloaded a profile that looked wrong to me... then I filtered on the genre to see a lot that seemed wrong to me. But then again this is not my best subject matter so I thought maybe there was something I wasn't taken into consideration. So figured I better ask before changing a bunch of profiles.

The way I always thought was...

Music: Concert discs and such
Musicals: Films with lots of singing and dancing... a lot of times coming out of no where.

Here is a list of films in my collection listed as Music that I thought would be Musicals. Any and all help on this subject would be appreciated.


Dirty Dancing



Moulin Rouge!



Walk the Line



The Blues Brothers



Blues Brothers 2000



Ray



The Blues Brothers Double Feature



American Dreamz



A Mighty Wind



Footloose



The Wedding Singer

I found the exact opposite of what Merrik to be true. I seldomly see the same cases  (upc and all) in complete series set. Far more often I see all the discs in a single case. Be it keep case or a book or what have you. So there is normally a lot of differences. Case type, release date, cover images, a lot of times differences in overview.

I do see what people are saying when it comes to just putting previous releases into a complete series slip cover. But as I said... in my experience (and I collect a LOT of complete series sets) this is seldomly the case.

The Rules do say not to profile shorts or episodes. In my eyes that would be enough to tell me not to give it it's own profile. At least not for the online database.

I would consider it a TV episode and as such not have it's own profile per the rules. Just like I see the Masters of horror a TV Series and those being episodes.

My Thoughts:

This film is a good combination of action and horror. It is not the greatest I seen of it's type... but well worth the time put in to watch it. I never been a huge fan of Tom Cruise... but he has grown on me over the past few years. I am not really familiar with the actress but I liked the woman that played Ahmanet. I also liked how they left the ending open for a possible franchise.

Quoting Merrik:
Quote:


This place hurts my brain sometimes.

APOLOGIES for wording my sentence badly... thank you both for pointing it out   

The point of what I was saying is still the same.

It was said "the rules tell us to use the title from the front cover, not the back cover. Period." and there are obvious exceptions to that.


I don't think anyone ever said from the front cover not the back period... as it is well known there is exceptions to it in the rules.

What we were (or at least I was) commenting on is the fact that you said that you agreed that this was covered by the rules Kathy posted (the exceptions)... which it does not. As the exceptions are only for possessives and when symbols are in the title on the front cover. This case is neither of these.

No. There are contribution rules in place and they must be followed. As the Martian pointed out, the rules tell us to use the title from the front cover, not the back cover. Period.


Although the rules tell us to use the front cover, they also detail instances in which we take this data from the back cover credit block, movie credits and invelos' Capitalization tool.

"Include possessives if the front cover includes them, and if they are verifiably part of the title. If quotes surround the title in the credit block (generally on the back cover), check whether the possessive is within the quotes."

"For titles which include periods, dashes, or other symbols, check the credit block on the back of the case if included. If not, check the film credits or opening sequence."

"English titles will be automatically capitalized by the contribution system per the Associated Press style title standard. Capitalization Tool."


I would agree that this would fall under these parts of the rules. Thanks for putting them here Kathy. The rules really don't tell us to use the title from the front cover, not the back cover, period at all really. There's many instances where we refer to different areas to get the title we end up entering.

My Thoughts:

I felt like watching something that is just plain fun next. So I pulled out The Monster Squad. This one is an old favorite of mine that I liked to try to fit in every October. Always good for a few laughs... the lines "the Wolfman has nards!" and "Well Steve... but he doesn't count!" gets me laughing every time I watch this movie. I like how they have most all the classic monsters in this movie. They made the story fun and interesting at the same time. This movie would make a good introduction for kids that are curios about horror movies. If by chance you never seen this movie I would definitely recommend it to all.

When Master Vampire Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith) decimates Jack's entire team, Crow and the sole team survivor, Montoya (Daniel Baldwin), set out in pursuit. Breaking all the rules, Crow and Montoya take one of Valek's victims hostage.

The beautiful but unlucky prostitute (Sheryl Lee) is their sole psychic link to Valek, and through her senses they will track down the leader of the undead. As Valek nears the climax of his 600-year search for the Berziers Cross, Jack and the new Team Crow do everything humanly possible to prevent him from possessing the only thing that can grant him and all vampires the omnipotent power to walk in the daylight.

Plot:
Something is killing off townsfolk in Tarker's Mills. Something mysterious. Something ingenious. Something remotely human. But the only person in town with courage to stop this lurking menace is a 13-year-old boy, confined to a wheelchair since birth. Adapted to the screen by suspense master Stephen King from his "Cycle of the Werewolf" novelette, this exhilarating thriller features astounding special effects by three-time Oscar® winner Carlo Rambaldi ("E.T.," "Alien," "King Kong").

Extras:

My Thoughts:

I have loved it since I first saw it when I was just a teen. I absolutely love the supped up wheel chair... The Silver Bullet! I really enjoyed the scene when he first got it... finding out just how fast it went. I believe Stephen King's take on the werewolf legend is just right on the spot. And I liked who the werewolf turned out to be. While it is not what I would call a gory movie... there is a scene or two that shows it's fair share of blood. There was nothing about this movie that was not just plain enjoyable. It is definitely one of my favorite werewolf movies.If by chance you never seen this film it is one I highly recommend!

Plot:
Renowned acting legend Claude Rains made a remarkable screen debut in ‘The Invisible Man’, based on H.G. Wells’ acclaimed novel. Rains, a mysterious doctor, creates a serum that makes him invisible. But the miraculous potion also has the power to drive him mad, as he discovers when he is forced to commit horrific acts of terror. Directed by the master of the macabre, James Whale, ‘The Invisible Man’ set the standard for dazzling special effects with ingenious techniques that are still imitated today.

My Thoughts:

This is a fun classic horror. Claude Rains does a wonderful job in the title roll. Considering just how old this film is... the effects were great. I did not care much for the innkeeper's wife. I didn't like her attitude through-out the film and her hysterics was just too much to take. Other then that definitely worth watching.

My Thoughts:

This one is a bit different. Kind of a cross between a found footage movie and a regular one as not all the scenes seemed to be like found footage. There is things I liked about this one and things I did not. One thing I liked about it... and the truly scary part about this film is that it could really happen in today's world. While it is worth watching I really don't know how much I would re-watch it.
