    Well, I think most of you know my answer to this. But what is your favourite type of movie genre, and why?

    No specific genre for me. I don't watch movies much these days (I much prefer TV series) but when I do I can watch any genre from horror to comedy to thrillers to science fiction and so on.

    I rarely like comedy films, but one good one I've seen a couple of time is Mike Judge's Office Space. The first Dumb and Dumber film was pretty good too.

    The Big Lebowski : because its just so freaking good.

    We're the Millers : Because of the one line from Jennifer Aniston after finding out the Mexican policeman is gay.

    Any and mostly all of the , yeah, old B&W Abbott and Costello movies, Laurel and Hardy, Marx Bro.'s and Buster Keaton (who I consider the best comedian of all time)

    The first 4 Scary Movies because I like cornball.

    Kentucky Fried Movie because I've watched it since I saw it at a Drive In and I can still laugh at the "ninja" bit.

    I like the Kentucky fried movie for the enter the dragon spoof, it's worth it for that alone.

    Adore laurel and hardy, adore blazing saddles, which is probably my favourite movie ever, I've never got the appeal of the big lebowski, it's ok, just not great

    I also like............................ some romantic movies too believe it or not. I haven't lost the "ideal" of Love, just the capacity for it.

    I highly recommend "Water for Elephants", if you or anyone else reading this haven't seen it. Set in the Great Depression Circus life. I know, I know but its a love story par excellance.

    I like the odd love story to. I like an affair to remember and now voyager; and I cry endlessly at its a wonderful life and anything with animals dying, especially old yeller and marley and me. All great movies.

    I know that lots of lebowski fans love it because they appreciate the characters and culture of It, and it's endless Meme quotient , it's just not my thing, but i can appreciate why it is loved

    Highly , highly recommended. An all around good movie both for the storyline and its historical accuracy. Both sad and exhilarating at the same time. A very under appreciated film.
    If you like just "a good movie" you can't do much better. I have never heard anyone say they didn't like it. Truth.

    I'm sure you'll like it ...... to one extent or another. Seriously, it works on every level there is. Good acting, good script, ASTOUNDING cinematography and if you don't have a tear of bittersweet happiness/sadness at the end...... you have no soul.
