IMDB Genres?

Post by zappe »

Is the genres here supposed to match IMDB genres?

If yes, then there's a lot of movies with wrong genres.
Just by looking at Horror I reported most of the ones I checked.

If no, what are they based on?

Genres are mostly supplied by our users -- the ones who have submitted the films, or made updates.

We do use IMDB as a way to double-check, and in case two users disagree, we'll use IMDB as the ultimate arbiter to settle the discussion.
