Talking 'bout my Genre-ation!




Today we go over two of the most popular genres, Crime/Thrillers and


Spy films. The themes of larceny, robbery, and murder, whether on a


grand or small scale has always captivated audiences. Likewise, the


movie going public's fascination with espionage has never waned.


Reaching a peak in the Cold War years, they have maintained 


momentum  through the Millennium. Here now are my most highly
