Plugin recommendation for Page types

I'm doing a site where there will be alot of content. Album and movie reviews within different genres as well as a blog. I want to have the reviews as pages, but I need to be able to separate the pages based on category (or content type) in listings.

I am looking for a way to categorize pages so that I can list different categories in widgets and listings pages on the site. I found a plugin to add categories to pages but it didn't really do anything.

I tried the custom post types from wpmudev but it was only for posts.

Does anyone have any advice? I'd really like to stick with wordpress for this site, but I don't know if it's possible...

Thanks.
