Movies Types - Action and Drama

In the next three movie sections, we are going to learn about different movie types.  Afterwards, we will cover having discussions about movies that you recently saw.  But for now, let's work on movie types.

There are many different types of movies.  You probably know them all in your language, but let's learn what they are in English.  Also, we will learn how to say a couple of sentences related to a movie type.  If you disagree with a sentence, feel free to change some words around so they fit what you want to say.

Although there are many categories, we will learn the most basic 10 types of movies.

Romantic comedy
Horror
Science fiction
Suspense (Thriller)
Western
