Your favorite movie genres

What are your favorite movie genres? Sports? Horror? Action? Buddy Cops? Drama? Documentaries. Sci-Fi? Romantic Comedy? Super Heroes? Westerns?

My Top Five, in order:

1. ANIMATED FAMILY FILMS. “Frozen,” “Finding Nemo” and “Lion King” are just three examples of how family-friendly animated films are on par with the very best live-action classics. I love the color, creativity, humor and stories. They’re the best kind of movie magic.

2. SUPERHERO. This is a recent trend. I wasn’t very fond of this genre before, but Marvel’s “shared universe” concept was a game changer. I’m going to be sad when the current Marvel phase comes to an end.

3. FAITH-BASED. This genre is kind of hit or miss, but lately the quality has been exceptional. Films like “I Can Only Imagine” and “Woodlawn” are excellent. They’re inspiring, well acted and very well done.

4. SCI-FI: I love the new Star Trek movies.

5. ACTION COMEDIES: I find that I enjoy buddy-type comedies like “The Heat” (Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy) and “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” (Samuel Jackson and Ryan Reynolds).

That's a tough one. I like movies that take from different genres.

Never heard of it, so I YouTubed it and...wow! What the heck did I just watch?!?  Cheesy

I see what you mean. Elements of comedy, horror, sci-fi and action-adventure... Cool!

I enjoy summer camp slashers such as Sleepaway Camp and the Burning, heist films such as Heat and the Score, indie/cult films like Rushmore and Mallrats, Italian "giallo" films like Deep Red or Sleepless, zombie films like Dawn of the Dead, hacking themed films such as Hackers or Sneakers, buddy cop and action movies like Lethal Weapon and Die Hard, kid centered films from the 90s like Home Alone and 3 Ninjas, highbrow art films like La Dulce Vita and the 400 Blows, and comedies like Tin Men, Caddyshack, Animal House. I also tend to dig Tarantino films, as well as the genres he pulls inspiration from such as kung fu, revenge and blaxploitation films. In terms of blaxploitation, anything with Pam Grier is good, such as Coffy or Foxy Brown.

It's part of an awesome horror trilogy known as the Evil Dead. I highly recommend them, especially the final installment, Army of Darkness.

zombie films like Dawn of the Dead

I love that movie!

Did you watch the remake as well? The original was way, way better.

That film was so imaginative. It made me think what I would do if I lived in a large shopping mall with the threat of zombies on the outside.

Yep, I did see the remake. It was alright as far as remakes go but the original is the bees knees as far as I am concerned. The 1979 films has a charm that the remake just didn't capture.

A number of years ago, the wife and I went to Austin for a George Romero film event and watched Night of the Living Dead in a pasture on a farm with a couple hundred fans. It was geeky but fun.

I can't simply do genres because my interests are varied. For me it's all about the writing and the acting.

Army of Darkness
12 Angry Men
To Kill A Mockingbird
Phantasm
The Life of Brian
The Kingsmen
Bullitt
High Plains Drifter
The Warriors
Machete
Dog Day Afternoon
Dr. Quartermass and the pit (Hammer version)

I'm all over the place.
