Everyone dreads self-introductions in class, especially in a language class. Your go-to is probably to discuss your hobbies. 

But simply saying “I like listening to music, watching movies, etc.” will not suffice when you are at an intermediate level. But how can you describe the last thing you watched?

Here’s how you say movie genres in Chinese (with sample sentences)!

Some quick grammar rules: If you add 片 (Piàn) after the genres below, it becomes “[genre] movie.” For example, 恐怖+片 is “horror movie.” You write movie titles in 《》(the greater and less than symbols on your keyboard) and the measure word is 部 (Bù).
