What is your favorite movie genre?


Do you know my poetry?
Come on everybody has to have a favorite genre, one specific genre that you really love. My favorite genre has to be Sci-Fi, its the most underated genre, they rarely get nominated for 'Best Picture'.

Mine's the Indiana Jones type adventure movies.
Make it happen!

My top 5 would probably be...

Noir, Mystery, Hitchcockian Thrillers, Shakespeare, Western

(Maybe not in that order though)
"I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!" - Howard Beale

"Today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids."

It was beauty killed the beast.
Noir is a style not a genre. It's like cinéma verité.

Kong will stop being picky now.

Kong can't pick a favorite genre.

No Kong, while I believe you are correct in a purist sense, I will note that Noir can definitely be a genre. To avoid any controversy (and because I’m very tired), however, I'll specify that my favorite genre is Detective Noir.

Noir and Westerns
"Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream it takes over as the number one hormone. It bosses the enzymes, directs the pineal gland, plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to Film is more Film." - Frank Capra

I am having a nervous breakdance
Though I don't really think I have a favourite genre, a lot of my favourite films tend to belong to the war genre.

I think a lot of the existential questions that especially men are concerned with are being dealt with in war movies. The war genre is well suited for issues like manhood and masculinity as well as how to deal with stuff like fear (and not showing fear), friendship, duty, guilt, your relationship with authorities and feelings and emotions in general.

War movies are often about what is expected of you as a man, things that you don't have to fight a war in a literal sense to be interested in.

Yikes, am I having problems??
The novelist does not long to see the lion eat grass. He realizes that one and the same God created the wolf and the lamb, then smiled, "seeing that his work was good".


They had temporarily escaped the factories, the warehouses, the slaughterhouses, the car washes - they'd be back in captivity the next day but
now they were out - they were wild with freedom. They weren't thinking about the slavery of poverty. Or the slavery of welfare and food stamps. The rest of us would be all right until the poor learned how to make atom bombs in their basements.

I'll Just give you a list 5=lowest, 1=highest

5.Romantic Comedy





Not just drama, films like One Flew over the Cookoo's Nest, Dances w/ Wolves or Braveheart. Those kind fo drama movies.
Remember, remember, the 5th of November
I'm afraid I must bid you adieu.
He woke up one night with a terrible fright
And found he was eating his shoe.

Horror, Kung Fu(not really a genre but you get the idea), Noir, Suspense, and Comedy.


Only for the weak
Crime drama and noir, both are often related but not always.
Early morning moments, a glimpse of joy. But soon it's over and I return to dust. As I try to be, everything everyone. I shrivel up and, waste away.
