> <dt id='cast'>Cast</dt>
>    <dd>Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Patrick, Ginnifer  
> Goodwin,
> Shelby Lynne</dd>

I would say it's an abuse of definition list, but at the same time,  
definition list is not very strictly defined in the HTML 4.01

### References
I have never seen a microformat or set of classes specific for movies.
But somehow it might be closely related to

* http://microformats.org/wiki/reviews-formats
* http://developers.technorati.com/wiki/hReview
* http://www.amk.ca/xml/reviews.html
* http://structuredblogging.org/xmlns/simple-review.xsd

There's also

* Design of Ontology for The Internet Movie Database (IMDb)
* Graph Structure which was designed to import the IMDB database
* A parser for the IMDB database

### Comments
Don't take them as mandatory things but just references materials  
that you can reuse to organize your own profile/microformats.
