I take your point but it may be worth mentioning that this list has always had as its topic hardboiled and noir literature. The current description is: "For the discussion of hardboiled and noir writing."

Now I certainly enjoy and participate in some film discussions and I can hardly object to music as I have been a party to many a jazz discussion on such artists as Mingus and Miles Davis. Still, there are times when we are very far afield.
