Of course there isn't! Not that I know anyway. I just use those terms to simplify things  for myself. It's up to you if you think it is an oversimplification. Maybe most movies made for money in some sort of way but I still think the heart of The Turin Horse is very different from that of Spielberg's War Horse.

Why, because War Horse is good? Really good?

Looking at initial results, I'm surprised Shocktober is our most popular Group Marathon.

As far as new releases go horror is a lot more alive and kicking then westerns, film noir and musicals. I'd estimate if those other genres had such a healthy bunch of new/recent releases they'd be doing just as well.
I guess horror is more of a film-by-film basis and not as director-dependent as I thought.

Pure gut on these. Multiple films on my top 100 gets you an automatic 10, other tens are based on feeling and vibe. Don't really care about bad movies unless they're really bad (looking at you, George Lucas).
Lucas is the best example of a Director who may have made a Top 100 film but is not highly regarded as a Director.

Junior, did you mean to leave WKW blank?

Polanski, Roman - 10

Wong, Kar-Wai -
I really like Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown, The Pianist and Ghost Writer.

But I voted for Macbeth. It's kind of awesome.
I only knew you were a fan of Repulsion and Rosemary. How much Polanski have you seen? What's next from him for you?

I don't know. I'm judging that film on hearsay.

Maybe best to avoid doing that. It's a quite good movie.

Touch, Sir! I take War Horse to his stable and bring you Seabiscuit to clarify my point.
