    My BIG question is can you now have a movie available in multiple Genres ?

    meaning can I have a genre for a movie of say Action and a genre I setup for my son ????

    This way when you goto the genre list and choose Action or Chucks Favorites Die Hard 4 will come up in both.

    I have really wanted this 1 feature more then anything else,

    thanks

    You can only choose one genre.

    Genres weren't meant to be used in the way you want to use them. "Chuck's Favorites" isn't a genre. Why not use a playlist and drop all your son's favs in there?

    I think you are looking for a playlist feature vs genre. A genre is a genre, but a playlist can support your features. Hopefully Apple gives this to use soon.

    Well, could be useful for me.

    For example, browsing comedies won't display any animations. Tagging movies as "comedy" and "animation" would be very useful.
