Genre, 24 Frames a Second
Let us say, someone is in conversation with another person and they begin chewing the fat on movies. A few opinions thrown out to each other go by, then one of them asks, "What's a good western to watch?", now hit the pause button. In this scenario a good 99.9% percent of people have no problem with a question like that and are eager to flood the gates with a film or two. But it is too blanketed of a question and even more so with what is recommended. A "western movie" can mean anything, Showdown at Boot Hill (1958) is a completely different movie than The Wild Bunch (1969) and even more so McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971) is a different breed of western. A gamble is now in effect as that person may end up wasting an hour or two of their time not liking what has been recommended to them. Because a vague question will bring forth a vague answer.
