Hello friends,

In this thread we discuss about our fav and least fav (or hated) genre in movies.

heres mine

FAV:

Action movies - They are by far best type of movies ever. even though most action movies these days are crap but dark action movies like John wick are like best movies ever. they are engaging from start to finish.

Least fav:

Romantic movies - They are just awful. yeah some movies i forced to watch on TV because everyone was watching it (ie TItanic) but any of them i watch I consider worst kind of movies ever. they are so cheezy and made for people who just want to live in fantasy dream world, or dreemy dreemy girls.

so my friends, whats your fav and hated genre? lets discuss

Favorite genres:

Science-fiction

Black comedy

Film noir

Psychological thriller

Spaghetti western

Least favorite genres:

I don't have a least favorite genre. I have found exceptional films in just about every genre and there is not a single one that I go out of my ways to avoid. The big thing I look for in cinema is the terms of quality and if the film successfully conveys its own ambitious.

I will never say a quality film is bad just because it does not fit my usual genre. I can also see that sometimes a stupid movie like Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure or Idiocracy is successful because these movies are intended to be stupid and succeeded at it.

Fav- Martial Arts

Least Fav - Torture Porn

By that I specifically mean stuff like Eli Roth type movies where its a barrage of horrible vile shit be it gore or sexual and then it ends, where you've just watched unpleasant crap for 90 minutes, that wasn't scary, just unpleasant.

That's how I pretty much felt when I saw that Evil Dead remake that came out some odd years ago - torture porn. I absolutely hated that movie and thought it was just an excuse to pump volumes of gushing blood through the screen.

I remember back then I got a lot of hate among my friends for disliking the movie because everyone else thought it was edgy and cool - but to be honest the campiness of the originals is kinda what made them special and that was completely gone in the remake.

They certainly popularised the genre in the West. Personally I love Gordon Liu and Shaw Brothers.

Jackie Chan is good as well, mainly people he's willing to literally die to entertain you, never seen a lot of his older movies, def worth picking up on the Amazon.

Favorite: Physiological Horror (in other words, horror that doesn't rely on gratuitous violence and gore to "scare" the viewer).

Least favorite would probably be Romance movies.

Historical drama/war movies tend to have large scale battles action movies generally don't though, and stuff like Marvel is a big ol' CGI fest where it might as well be PS4 characters banging each other.

It's pretty rare now though, much easier to sit back with a cup of coco and let the computers do it all.

Yeah CGI isn't the same thing. Kind of sad really that movies have become that.

Also many war movies are historical. Which is also cool.
