VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

A docudrama is a documentary and a drama.

A sitcom is a situation comedy, where the comedy takes place in the same situation every week.

A romcom is a romantic comedy.

And a rockumentary is a documentary about rock, about rockstars.

A chickflick is a portmanteau of 'chick', a slang word for girls and 'flick' a slang word for films.

Bromance is brother or 'bro' romance, so when two friends, two male friends are very, very close it seems like they are a couple.

A biopic is a biography and a picture, a moving picture, a motion picture. So a film about somebody's life.

Outside of Hollywood we have Bollywood, which is Bombay and Hollywood.

We also have Nollywood, which is Nigeria and Hollywood.

Maybe you've seen the film Sharknado, which is a portmanteau of shark and tornado. It's not a classic!

And finally, Pokémon. If you play Pokémon, Pokémon means pocket monsters.
