Thriller is a broad genre of literature, film and television, having numerous, often overlapping subgenres. Thrillers are characterized and defined by the moods they elicit, giving viewers heightened feelings of suspense, excitement, surprise, anticipation and anxiety.
The example of thriller movie is Annabelle.
Horror films often aim to evoke viewers' nightmares, fears, revulsions and terror of the unknown. Plots within the horror genre often involve the intrusion of an evil force, event, or personage into the everyday world. Prevalent elements include ghosts, extraterrestrials, vampires, werewolves, demons, Satanism, evil clowns, gore, torture, vicious animals, evil witches, monsters, zombies, cannibalism, psychopaths, natural, ecological or man-made disasters, and serial killers.
The example of horror movie is The Witch.
Romance is an emotional feeling of love for, or a strong attraction towards another person, and the courtship behaviors undertaken by an individual to express those overall feelings and resultant emotions.
Although the emotions and sensations of romantic love are widely associated with sexual attraction, romantic feelings can exist without expectation of physical consummation and be subsequently expressed. Historically, the term romance originates with the medieval ideal of chivalry as set out in the literature of chivalric romance.
The example of romantic movie is A Little Things Called Love.
Action film is a film genre in which the protagonist or protagonists are thrust into a series of challenges that typically include violence, extended fighting, physical feats, and frantic chases. Action films tend to feature a resourceful hero struggling against incredible odds, which include life-threatening situations, a villain, or a pursuit which usually concludes in victory for the hero (though a small number of films in this genre have ended in victory for the villain instead).
The example of action movie is KL Gangster
Fantasy films are films that belong to the fantasy genre with fantastic themes, usually magic, supernatural events, mythology, folklore, or exotic fantasy worlds. The genre is considered a form of speculative fiction alongside science fiction films and horror films, although the genres do overlap. Fantasy films often have an element of magic, myth, wonder, escapism, and the extraordinary.
The example of fantasy film is Avengers: Endgame.
Comedy is a genre of film in which the main emphasis is on humour. These films are designed to make the audience laugh through amusement and most often work by exaggerating characteristics for humorous effect. Films in this style traditionally have a happy ending (black comedy being an exception). One of the oldest genres in film, some of the very first silent movies were comedies, as slapstick comedy often relies on visual depictions, without requiring sound. When sound films became more prevalent during the 1920s, comedy films took another swing, as laughter could result from burlesque situations but also dialogue.
The example of comedy movie is Grown Ups

Top 3 Hotspot For Food Hunter
Who does not like to eat right? I love to try any food in this world but only when it is Halal. Sometime the price is a little bit expensive but i will try the food. The restaurant that i love to attack is restaurant that serve Malaysian food and western food as well.
This is the suggestion if you want to try best food ever in Malaysia :
1) Nasi Dagang Pak Malau.
Hungry for a Malaysian breakfast or lunch? Make your way down to the countryside and enjoy the delicious Terengganu and Kelantan nasi dagang (rice steamed in coconut milk served with fish curry, fried shaved coconut, hard-boiled egg and vegetable pickles). Pick aromatic curries (such as beef rendang, chicken curry, fish curry and mutton korma) to go with the rice. The whole eating experience is more memorable thanks to the friendly owner and the views of rice fields in front of Gunung Raya. The price is also reasonable and affordable.
Located: No. 186, Jalan Makam Mahsuri, Mukim Ulu Melaka, Langkawi, Kedah.
2)Long Beach Food Court
This simple, open air with a metal awning rooftop can get a little noisy when it rains but the sheer variety of great tasting food makes it one of our choice food courts in Penang. Popular with travellers, here you will find probably the best wontons and noodles you will ever taste .
Meanwhile the Malay fried rice is also quite a treat – i like the kampung fried rice with plenty of salty, crispy anchovies. Food hunter should try this !!
Lots of people say that prices here are more expensive than other food courts around the island, but on our last visit we did not notice a perceivable gap.
Opening Hours: 18:00 – 23:00
Address: Jalan Batu Ferringhi, Batu Ferringhi,Penang.
3) Nasi Kukus Mama Murah & Marvellous
It's one of my favorite restaurants to dine, if I am at Pahang. The tatse of food here is excellent. you normally can see big Que infront of fried chicken counter ,which is most selling item here.My personal favorite however is brinjal curry, it's simply delicious and best to be eaten with white plain sticky glutenous rice.End your meal with coconut ice cream milkshake and you are in heaven ! The shop serves delicious crunchy fried chicken or sambal chicken with steam rice. The fried chicken is very crunchy and juicy, the rice is soft and fragrance. Staff are friendly and nice. Restaurant is clean, Toilet very clean too.
