Just like Collections, Genres and Actors are to Movies what Tags are to Posts: unlike Collections, Genres and Actors are meant to describe Movies content. Even though they are not used directly to organize movie lists, Genres and Actors allow you to find all your movies from a particular Genre or staring a specific actor.
Lets use the David Fincher example again to illustrate:
|Fight Club||David Fincher||Drama, Action, Thriller||Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, …|
|Se7en||David Fincher||Crime, Mystery, Thriller||Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lee Ermey, …|
|Alien3||David Fincher||Science-Fiction, Action, Horror||Sigourney Weaver, Charles S. Dutton, Charles Dance, Pete Postlethwaite, …|
|Zodiac||David Fincher||Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller||Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Edwards, …|
|The Social Network||David Fincher||Drama||Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Rooney Mara, …|
Manage genres and actors
Just like Post Tags, you can edit or delete genres and actors in Movies > Genres and Movies > Actors.
