    I like sci-fi best, especially in the big screen - so cool to be shown distant world or different ideas on big scale - Blade Runner, Stargate, Prometheus, Event Horizon and Pandorum being ones that spring to mind.

    Sci fi combined with comedy is good, so the Pegg/Frost films rate highly with me! I love the film Oliver! So that is a +1 for musicals and I love Clint Eastwood films +1 for westerns!

    My favourite film of all time is Koyaanisqatsi...which doesn't it into any category!

    I'll be the first to say it, obvious as it is; there's a lot of overlap in these catagories. I selected sci fi. To my mind, that includes most comic book adaptations. I side towards sci fi which fits into the fantasy/adventure catagory for the most part. I'm not sure how much I like fantasy/adventure but prefer it with a science fiction element or whether I like science fiction particularly when it has a fantasy and/or adventure element. And Thor Ragnarok is a sci-fi fantasy adventure comedy comic book adaptation.

    I don't watch many films these days. I used to go to the cinema regularly but not anymore. The last time I went was to see was Spectre two years ago. I'm more of a TV series person now. But my all time favourite movie is The Talented Mr Ripley.

    I haven't renewed my Cineworld card in over a year - nearly £200 a year for a movie I'm not likely to see?

    Only service I have is BritBox. If I want to see a movie I'll usually just buy the DVD.

    My All Time Favorite movie is Casablanca. Yeah, I'm an old romantic :redface: but this is just a great movie period.

    My favorite Science Fiction movie is Avatar. Beautiful sets, good acting, good writing but to this day I don't see how Mr. Cameron got away with it. Pretty much totally stole the whole movie. Its "Man Plus" by Fredrick Pohl mashed up with "The Integral Trees" by Larry Niven. Read them and prove me wrong!

    My favorite Comedy is "Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad Life".

    My favorite Graphic Novel/Comic Book movie has to be Deadpool with The Dark Knight a close second.

    My favorite Spoof/parody movie is Kentucky Fried Movie.

    My favorite horror movie is indeed The Devils Rejects.

    Its pretty hard for me to pick a favorite scene from K.F.M. but that one is great! I like the scene in the Ninja movie where he's "sneaking" into that room, knocking over everything he gets near. Also, the newscasters at the end........

    I think I've seen an innocent man, can't remember much of it. I love prison films, have you seen scum, one of Britain's greatest ever movies, don't miss it. You may also get a kick out of brawl in cell block 99

    Haven't seen either but I'll keep a look out for them. An Innocent Man is worth the trouble looking up for the plain simple fact that they let Mr. Selleck actually take revenge on the detectives at the end. Plus.... its just a good prison movie.
