      As a Film Critic I love all sorts of genres, but if I had to choose 1 it would be Horror, because they are unique and sometimes have good moral stories.

    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.

    It's got to be a good thought provoking thriller for me, failing that a bit of mindless action or laugh out loud comedy.

    Forrest Gump, the new Karate Kid,  Couples Retreat (booom), Star Trek, Inception &  Avatar come to mind. wink

    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.

    For me, nothing is going to top Inception for a while yet (what kind of a movie was it?) but prior to that it was Mama Mia, so I guess I like many different types of movies.

    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....

    Well, my 2 cents, anyway.  big_smile

    My favorite genre is action. I love good action movies, especially the ones from the 80's and 90's before CGI started playing a huge role in making movies. Die Hard is my all time favorite action film. I also love a great SCI/FI flick as well. Christopher Nolan is my favorite director and has been a master of that genre in my opinion. I do like a good drama, especially court room dramas like a Few Good Men or Devil's Advocate.

    I recently watched "About a Boy" with Hugh Grant. I like older movies.
    I liked The "Edge of Seventeen," recently out, but like most of today's films, the edginess, which seems to be a modern film making requirement, can make one uncomfortable.

      Comedy, Sci-Fi, and mystery.

      When any of these mix, I end up finding my favorite movies. They alone as one genre are great, but mixed (especially scifi and mystery), you end up with some of the most thought provoking and interesting movies.

      I love a good comedy. I just finished watching Scary movie 2. I also like non violent science fiction movies. I am ok with a good romance film.

      My least favorite is slasher horror flicks. I cant stand the halloween or Jason movies. The only one I liked was freddy vs Jason. I liked the Freddy role, because he could be anything, and each film was always more strange than the last. Freddy vs Jason was actually kind of funny. I saw it in the theater with a packed audience, and there were more people laughing then being scared.

      I also saw Halloween Resurrection, and i hated every minute of it. people were actually yelling at the screen going. "Oh how fricking stupid!" I walked out wanting my money back.
