They're not genres. Or if they are genres, they're much more modular genres than all the other genres in the competition. I mean, one of the examples on the genre definition page for horror is Poltergeist, probably the most famously ghosty ghost story in the history of movies. Action/adventure has Casino Royale, thriller (incorrectly) has Mission: Impossible, both of which are more spy movies than anything else if we're buying into 'Spy' as its entire own genre. I'm just saying, it is unfair to give those as required genres when all the other genres are much, much broader in what you're allowed to do.
