All movies have something to offer, it just depends on what you need at the time. Just like you have cravings for particular foods, your body is telling you that you need iron, for example. Sometimes you feel like watching a comedy because you need to laugh or you watch a drama because you need to cry. Movies allow us to experience emotions outside of ourselves and that can be massively cathartic.
I love film noir, but I watch every single movie I can get my hands on. Action movies really help me unwind after a particularly annoying day at work. Something about watching things blow up and bad guys get what's coming to them makes me smile.
Inspirational movies based on true stories such as Freedom Writers, Remember the Titans, BlindSide. They tend to be sports related. Some documentaries are good - Shut Up and Sing was one I enjoyed. Other than that - comedies or animations like Up. Every now and then a Bourne Supremacy or Mission Impossible movie fits the bill.
Action and comedy, but not mindless crap. I enjoy stupid comedy, but a lot of movies now are just beyond stupid. I like ridiculous movies like Kill Bill and Machete, and Adam Sandler movies always make me laugh, even if they are dumb.
How many remember the made for tv specials like Shogun or Shaka Zulu? I really enjoyed those. I also like movies like The Godfather, Casino, Saving private Ryan, Etc.. Anything with Christopher Walken. Comedies like Caddy Shack. African Queen, In the heat of the night.
I like movies that are well made, you know, with good acting, good directing, good sound, good dialogue, good action....
I'd say I like movies from each genre, but most of the action films are poorly made (too often I can't keep track of who is who, and find a severe lack of good dialogue) while many drama films fail in the action department, crime films may have good dialogue & action but the sound quality is poor (love Johnny Depp but disliked his Al Capone film cuz I couldn't hear it!) Horror films, lets see, what can be said about horror films? Too much blood & gore with poor acting, poor directing, ridiculous dialogue, and hilarious action - oh yeah, and way too much skin for it to seriously be considered a horror film rather than a porno film. Romance films - too close to porno nowadays, and really, where do people come up with the idea to fake an orgasm in the middle of lunch at a diner?? Comedies just aren't funny anymore....
