More genre submissions declined

My submission to list Six Days Seven Nights under the Action and Comedy genres was declined. The film was once listed under those genres, but they were removed at some point. Many people would agree this film fits under those genres.

190531-220408-993000

Also, my submission to list Twister as an action film was declined. Like the other film this was also once listed as such. Again, this film definitely deserves to be called an action film.

They both are adventures:
Six Days Seven Nights (1998)
Twister (1996)

https://www.filmsite.org/adventurefilms.html
Adventure Films are exciting stories, with new experiences or exotic locales. Adventure films are very similar to the action film genre, in that they are designed to provide an action-filled, energetic experience for the film viewer. Rather than the predominant emphasis on violence and fighting that is found in action films, however, the viewer of adventure films can live vicariously through the travels, conquests, explorations, creation of empires, struggles and situations that confront the main characters, actual historical figures or protagonists.
If you add more butter into the porridge, it will not be more porridge.

Six Days Seven Nights, among other scenes, ends with the protagonists escaping on a plane while pirates are shooting at them. I feels scenes like that constitute an action film.

Twister has the constant scenes of tornadoes bulldozing various things. That film ends with the protagonists running from and eventually getting caught in a tornado. Again, it seems like it fits under the action genre.

The DVD blurbs support my claim.

I’m not saying they aren’t adventure films (they very much are), I’m saying they’re also action films.

Max, please read my replies below. I am agreeing with you. The reply you received above is misleading. Please wait for a reply further from an Employee of IMDb.
You need not supply anymore evidence.
I do not know why MAthePA chose to argue against it being the genres that you claim.
They clearly are.
I have seen both movies myself. The genres you claim them to be, is correct.
Thanks
Cheers

Ed

If you're not going to list either as action films, could someone review the comedy genre submission for Six Days? That film has enough comedy to fall under that genre.

Relax Max.
Wait for an Employee reply.
Every time a reply is made on a post, it delays you getting an answer from staff.

Hi Max -

I am in agreement regarding these genres, they have now been added to both titles and the changes should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
