Drama is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance. The term comes from a Greek word meaning "action", which is derived from "I do". The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional generic division between comedy and tragedy. They are symbols of the ancient Greek Muses, Thalia, and Melpomene. Thalia was the Muse of comedy (the laughing face), while Melpomene was the Muse of tragedy (the weeping face). Considered as a genre of poetry in general, the dramatic mode has been contrasted with the epic and the lyrical modes ever since Aristotle´s Poetics (c. 335 BCE)—the earliest work of dramatic theory.In English (as was the analogous case in many other European languages), the word "play" or "game" (translating the Anglo-Saxon plèga or Latin ludus) was the standard term used to describe drama until William Shakespeare´s time—just as its creator was a "play-maker" rather than a "dramatist" and the building was a "play-house" rather than a "theatre." The use of "drama" in a more narrow sense to designate a specific type of play dates from the modern era. "Drama" in this sense refers to a play that is neither a comedy nor a tragedy—for example, Zola´s Thérèse Raquin. It is this narrower sense that the film and television industries, along with film studies, adopted to describe "drama" as a genre within their respective media. "Radio drama" has been used in both senses—originally transmitted in a live performance, it has also been used to describe the more high-brow and serious end of the dramatic output of radio.

Action film is a film genre in which the protagonist or protagonists end up in 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 generally concludes in victory for the hero.Advancements in CGI have made it cheaper and easier to create action sequences and other visual effects that required the efforts of professional stunt crews in the past. However, reactions to action films containing significant amounts of CGI have been mixed as films that use computer animations to create unrealistic, highly unbelievable events are often met with criticism. While action has long been a recurring component in films, the "action film" genre began to develop in the 1970s along with the increase of stunts and special effects.The genre is closely associated with the thriller and adventure film genres, and it may also contain elements of spy fiction and espionage.HistoryEarly action filmsSome historians consider The Great Train Robbery to be the first action film. During the 1920s and 1930s, action-based films were often "swashbuckling" adventure films in which actors, such as Douglas Fairbanks, wielded swords in period pieces or Westerns.

Romance films or romance movies are romantic love stories recorded in visual media for broadcast in theaters and on TV that focus on passion, emotion, and the affectionate romantic involvement of the main characters and the journey that their genuinely strong, true and pure romantic love takes them through dating, courtship or marriage. Romance films make the romantic love story or the search for strong and pure love and romance the main plot focus. Occasionally, romance lovers face obstacles such as finances, physical illness, various forms of discrimination, psychological restraints or family that threaten to break their union of love. As in all quite strong, deep, and close romantic relationships, tensions of day-to-day life, temptations (of infidelity), and differences in compatibility enter into the plots of romantic films.Romantic films often explore the essential themes of love at first sight, young with older love, unrequited romantic love, obsessive love, sentimental love, spiritual love, forbidden love/romance, platonic love, sexual and passionate love, sacrificial love, explosive and destructive love, and tragic love. Romantic films serve as great escapes and fantasies for viewers, especially if the two people finally overcome their difficulties, declare their love, and experience life "happily ever after", implied by a reunion and final kiss. In romantic television series, the development of such romantic relationships may play out over many episodes, and different characters may become intertwined in different romantic arcs.

Science fiction film is a genre that uses speculative, fictional science-based depictions of phenomena that are not fully accepted by mainstream science, such as extraterrestrial lifeforms, alien worlds, extrasensory perception and time travel, along with futuristic elements such as spacecraft, robots, cyborgs, interstellar travel or other technologies. Science fiction films have often been used to focus on political or social issues, and to explore philosophical issues like the human condition. In many cases, tropes derived from written science fiction may be used by filmmakers ignorant of or at best indifferent to the standards of scientific plausibility and plot logic to which written science fiction is traditionally held.The genre has existed since the early years of silent cinema, when Georges Melies´ A Trip to the Moon employed trick photography effects. The next major example in the genre was the film Metropolis - being the first feature length science fiction movie. From the 1930s to the 1950s, the genre consisted mainly of low-budget B movies. After Stanley Kubrick´s landmark 2001: A Space Odyssey, the science fiction film genre was taken more seriously. In the late 1970s, big-budget science fiction films filled with special effects became popular with audiences after the success of Star Wars and paved the way for the blockbuster hits of subsequent decades.

Gay is a term that primarily refers to a homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual. The term was originally used to mean "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy".The term´s use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century. In modern English, gay has come to be used as an adjective, and as a noun, referring to the people, especially to gay males, and the practices and cultures associated with homosexuality. By the end of the 20th century, the word gay was recommended by major LGBT groups and style guides to describe people attracted to members of the same sex.At about the same time, a new, pejorative use became prevalent in some parts of the world. Among younger speakers, the word has a meaning ranging from derision (e.g., equivalent to rubbish or stupid) to a light-hearted mockery or ridicule (e.g., equivalent to weak, unmanly, or lame). In this use, the word rarely means "homosexual", as it is often used, for example, to refer to an inanimate object or abstract concept of which one disapproves. The extent to which these usages still retain connotations of homosexuality has been debated and harshly criticized.

競馬(けいば、)は、騎手の乗った馬により競われる競走競技、およびそれの着順を予想する賭博である。イギリスを発祥とする近代競馬は多くの国々で開催されており、その多くは勝馬投票券の販売とセットの興業として行われている。概説競馬は主に競馬場と呼ばれる専用の競技場で開催される。一つ一つの競い合いを「競走 (race)」と呼び、一日の競馬開催でいくつかの競走が行われる。競走の種類は主に、平坦なコースを走る平地競走、障害物の飛越を伴う障害競走、繋駕車と呼ばれる車を曳いて走る繋駕速歩競走の3つからなり、他に繋駕車を曳かない速歩競走やそりを曳くばんえい競走などがある。競走では一般には騎手が馬に騎乗して一定の距離を走り、正規に最も早く決勝線に到達した馬を勝者とする。決勝線への到達は、概ね馬の鼻の先が決勝線を通過したときをもって判定されるが、ばんえい競走に限っては馬が引っ張るソリの最後部が決勝線を通過したときをもって判定される(詳細については競馬の競走を参照)。用いられる競走馬は平地や障害、速歩競走ではサラブレッド、サラブレッド系種、アラブ、アングロアラブ、アラブ系種の軽種馬もしくはクォーターホース、スタンダードブレッド(アメリカントロッター)等の中間種が用いられ、ばんえい競走では重種馬が用いられる。競馬の世界は優勝劣敗が大原則であり強い馬は強い馬同士、弱い馬は弱い馬同士での競走が基本である。だが、競走の出走メンバーのみを変更するには限界がある。そこで考え出された方法として強い馬には重い負担重量を、弱い馬には軽い負担重量となるように負担重量を変更することである程度幅のある競走を組むことができる。負担重量の決定方法としては馬齢戦、別定戦、定量戦、ハンデキャップ競走などもある。

El cine de ciencia ficción es un género cinematográfico que utiliza representaciones especulativas basadas en la ciencia de fenómenos imaginarios como extraterrestres, planetas alienígenas y viajes en el tiempo, a menudo junto con elementos tecnológicos como naves espaciales futuristas, robots y otras tecnologías. El cine de ciencia ficción se ha utilizado en ocasiones para comentarios críticos de aspectos políticos o sociales, y la exploración de cuestiones filosóficas como la definición del ser humano.Este tipo de cine se origina con el cine mudo, cuando el Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902) de Georges Méliès asombró a su audiencia con sus efectos fotográficos. Desde la década de 1930 hasta la de 1950, el género consistía principalmente en películas de serie B de bajo presupuesto. Tras el hito de Stanley Kubrick de 2001: A Space Odyssey de 1968, el cine de ciencia ficción fue tomado más en serio. A finales de la década de 1970, películas de presupuesto alto con efectos especiales se convirtieron en populares entre la audiencia. Películas como Star Wars o Close Encounters of the Third Kind allanaron el camino de éxitos de ventas en las siguientes décadas como E. T.: El extraterrestre (1982).
