For me, my favourite genre is horror, without a doubt. I've always been a huge fan of horror work, both in terms of films and books. I find them the most exciting, thought provoking and thrilling kind of films. Paranormal and possession type horrors are my favourite. There are some great modern horrors out there but to me, nothing beats the classics and the old made for TV horrors from the 70s and 80s that no one has really heard of in modern times

As Stephen King famously said - "We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones"

I also love fantasy, thrillers, action, comedy and musical films but nothing comes close to horror for me :teehee:

Thrillers are quite good.

I like films with good storylines. Examples are like the Game, Scent of a Woman, and Primal Fear

I think Sci-if, but in all honesty everything but Romance, because I don't like romance.

I like action the most but not just pure action. Needs other qualities like a decent story (e.g. Logan and dark knight) or quality humour (deadpool and kick ass. Those 4 I named are in my top 5 (other being shawshank) but the only other action films close to it are dark knight rises and Star Trek into darkness, others I find up to enjoyable.

Reason for this probably is because I rate films on enjoyability (**** the oscars) and action films with another quality always do extremely well at that.

Both brilliant films. The Game is like a mystery throughout with all sorts of twists. I won't ruin it further. It's the Michael Douglas film by the way from 1997

Scent of a Woman, Al Pacino won an Oscar for that film. They're quite long films though. Over 2 hours. 😂😂😂

Ah wait The Game is something to do with a birthday party isn't it? I've seen it, but not for a few years so I'll need to re- watch it but from what I remember it was great

I thought The Game was just okay

My fav genres are crime/thriller/mystery, dramas, sci-fi and genre/franchise films like superhero/star wars etc. Don't have much time for comedies, romcoms and only select fantasy stuff. Not big on LOTR/Warcraft style swords and monsters/elves type thing

I was going to vote Sci-fi, but then I noticed that 'animated' was listed as a genre, so it had to be that... more of a medium though, TBH! :p:

I quite like Sci-fi, but I'll honestly watch anything, provided it's good.

Rom-com all the way! I can settle for just comedy, action comedies are also good. I love animatied but rom-com wins
