in reply to Trying to compare a string...

That's not how || works. The general pattern is

condition || condition || condition

So, you have to repeat the whole condition each time:

if ($genres[0] eq 'Science Fiction' || $genres[0] eq 'Sci-Fi' || or $g +enres[0] eq 'Fantasy') {

If you think it is a bit verbose, switch to some other way of checking the values:

# Either if ($genres[0] =~ /^ (?: Science\ Fiction | Sci-Fi | Fantasy ) $/x) { # or if (grep $genres[0] eq $_, 'Science Fiction', 'Sci-Fi', 'Fantasy') {
