foreach terms of taxonomy = empty result…

    i’m trying to show all the elements from a taxonomy, for example, i have different movies, each classified into a taxonomy as : “comedy”, “drama” etc.
    if i’m viewing a page that is part of the “comedy” taxonomy, i would like to have all the others movies from the same taxonomy, so in this example, all the movies linked to “comedy”.

    I’m trying to use get_the_term_list to catch the name of the current taxonomy of the page, and then use it with get_terms and a foreach method, to show the result inside a “li” element, but i only got an empty result, (while the get_the_term_list shows me the right taxonomy if i ‘echo’ it, and if i try with the main taxonomy as a parameter of get_terms, i got the 2 type of taxonomy : comedy and drama inside the “li”s, BUT : i only want what is “inside” the comedy or drama taxonomy, not only the title “comedy” or “drama”)

    here’s the code :

    $my_tax = get_the_term_list( $post->ID, 'type');
    //echo $my_tax;?> output works fine
    $terms = get_terms('$my_tax');
    foreach ($terms as $term) {
    echo "
    "; //it's an empty output

    I don’t know how to fix my problem, it is the same thing, i assume, as doing a “related articles” at the bottom of a page, does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks a lot.
