Please keep in mind that the "Adventure" genre is subjective, if there are titles on the site (such as those you referenced for the Batman series) with genres that you feel are listed incorrectly or are missing, you are welcome to submit the Genre additions/deletions through our online Update form, you will also be able to include an Explanation to argue your case for adding or removing the genre and our editors will take a look.
Thanks for your post.
As mentioned in previous comments, genres are subjective to the individual and where possible we try to capture the most common ones associated with a title. There will always be circumstances where people are unable to agree on a genre and these will come down to our internal vetting decisions. We always encourage users to submit updates via the Edit Page button.
If you have submitted updates and these have not been approved, it means our editors do not believe the changes to be accurate.
Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
You dismiss me because of my brevity. Life IS and adventure. One in order to embark on one's life's adventure, one should do so with joy in his/her heart. I may have seemed to invoke ridicule by way of brevity. That was not my intention, it is in my nature to be "Happy". I would never ask one to become something they are not. Nor should anyone chastise another for being his own person.
Now with that out of the way......Batman "Is" Adventure by all definitions!
I have to be here and someone has to reply my questions as they are
valid (indeed and please a request). Because everyone is making things worse n you guys are supporting them immorally?
Really? No one has to be here. Most of us here like being here
exchanging ideas. No one HAS to reply to me! Valid or not! Nothing here
makes life or things worse. It is the exact opposite. . To see something
you never saw before because of the enlightenment of a new idea. That's
In the Introduction to the Encyclopedia of Adventure Fiction, Critic Don D'Amassa defines the genre as follows:
.. An adventure is an event or series of events that happens outside the course of the protagonist's ordinary life, usually accompanied by danger, often by physical action. Adventure stories almost always move quickly, and the pace of the plot is at least as important as characterization, setting and other elements of a creative work.
Adventure is a genre of literature that features stories of adventure, such as world travel, difficult quests, voyages of discovery, and other journeys. ... Today, we define adventure as a remarkable or unexpected journey, experience, or event that a person participates in as a result of chance.
AnotherDefinition of action-adventure From Websters Dictionary
: featuring characters involved in exciting and usually dangerous activities and adventures The movie is closer to an action-adventure thriller than a journalistic account, but energetic acting and vigorous directing make it work harrowingly well on its own terms.
A genre of fiction in which action is the key element, overshadowing characters, theme and setting. ... The conflict in an adventure story is often man against nature. (NATURE=BATMAN'S FEAR OF BATS) A secondary plot (GOTHAM CITY DANGER) that reinforces this kind of conflict is sometimes included. In Allistair MacLean’s Night Without End, for example, the hero, while investigating a mysterious Arctic air crash, also finds himself dealing with espionage, sabotage and murder. (THE HERO BATMAN PROTECTS HIS CITY)
NOVEL: Any novel in which exciting events and fast
paced actions are more important than character development,
theme, or symbolism. Examples include Alexandre Dumas's The
Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers,
H. Rider Haggard's King Solomon's Mines, or Edgar Rice
Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes.
In an adventure story, someone leaves everything he or she knows, faces danger and excitement along the way, and with a little luck, gets to his or her final destination safely and with a story to tell. Adventure stories have been around since Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. In short, they are engrained into human consciousness. But what exactly makes a story an adventure story? What has to exist to separate a story about a journey and make it adventurous? In this lesson, a number of traits of adventure stories will be examined by looking at how some of the greatest adventure stories ever told fit these archetypes.
First of all, there are some crucial components that have to exist for a story to be considered an adventure story. Most importantly, something out of the ordinary has to happen to the protagonist. A story about an eight year old going to school is not an adventure story. But if that day, the class was on a field trip to the paddleboat downtown and the protagonist ended up floating down the river? (OR BRUCE WAYNES PARENTS MURDERED) Now, that could be an adventure story.
Collins English Dictionary

Example: Thanks for the replies friends. Im sorry that this discussion is not that great and a complete 100% DSAT (dissatisfied). Take care all and God bless (K)
See.....You are nice!
Then there is this you below;
(Note: You use please a a lot. That's the nice you!)
One thing I have noticed is you discuss several movies and their changes in one Posting.
Suggestion. One Submission #, One movie, and One argument at a time. It will be a lot easier for all to give an opinion on the one Movie. Comparing it to another is OK. But discussions of several titles can lead to one person commenting about one title and having it being mistaken for a comment on a title that was not the topic. It's too confusing. Also only one of your 5 Genre posts are closed. All 5 have been considered "answered" though! 4 are still open. Thanks Cheers.
Mr. Crook i have added them. But again Romance genres has been deleted in hour or two by another illiterate chap!
Although AIRLIFT is I repeat NOT AN ACTION FILM
Now someone will remove in hour or two. Mr. Crook I'll like to inform you that I'm not wrong and if some chap doesn't agrees with me doesn't mean you term them right.
I"ve added nearly 1000 times War genre. That's not fair that the films I've mentioned as War films rejected each second each minute. Well I'll give a try or else I have to come here again to get Sorted.
I mean thats not acceptable as an editor that's my major concern.
(Padmaavat 2018) This has been added finally but make sure it mustnt get deleted as it has WAR scenes.
I dont actually like to nudge you for silly reasons but I cannot tolerate unwanted edit or removal of right ones. Please try to co operate with me and I will co operate with u all!
180601-084500-203000 for the ATTACKS OF 26/11. Please do not revert the edit and keep intact!
Please please never revert this edit. Humble request Michelle pleaseeeee...
Because i dont agree to what others say as long as the film has numerous (i repeat numerous scenes) of fantasised action with a "pinch" of sport and that is why I m here and wont go without a resolution!!
Whats going on! The Adventure Part was edited n saved again reverted to Adventure. (See below comment for references made few hours back) I mean why this belittling?
I wish whosoever is a staunch advocate of applying this genre to the movie would come forward if he/she could.
I dont agree. I even added Adventure to DARK KNIGHT & ITS SEQUEL but they removed the genre. I will have it published and wont close this forum unless an outcome is nt there!!
Brother, here i got to learn a thing, edits are not respected and do whatever as they please. I am an actor as well that's why i argue for genres and will do unless my voice doesnt reach to the superiors of imdb.
That's why this war against INDIOTS is fair and Community must have to adhere it.
