THE FILM RULES - Intermission

Film genres have formulas and rules, but how well do films follow those formulas?  

With 5 of the 10 Manic Pixie Dream Girl films done, a special Halloween post on Friday and Year Two about to start, I thought we'd take a little break... and look at how things work here:

Currently, we're looking at the character of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl in film, and if she follows the rules of the character.  Previous rule sets tested were Slasher Films, Rom Coms and Lesbian Romances.  There are also some random posts.

A rough schedule of films until the end of the MPDG test is available.  After that, the next set of rules to be tested is up for a vote... and future rules beyond are up for discussion on the "Workspace" page.

Currently at the top of the results of the poll is Zombie Films, and created a workspace page for that Genre, too.
