    I rarely watch movies, but when I do they're for one of two reasons:

    really dumb and entertaining movies because I'm drinking and want some noise going on

    or

    psychological horror or political movies that make me think, or documentaries

    I'm not a fan of romantic comedies, vampire movies or anything made for audiences under 18 years of age generally- they bore me and kind of make me want to curl up and die or something *shudder*

    I don't really like movies, but my INFP friend loves going. I don't really see an F/T connection in tastes in movies though.

    INFP: Hates horror, loves action movies (see Transporter, Casino Royale, saw The Dark Knight three times), fear of comedies in which someone gets embarassed
    INTJ: Likes action, even really dumb action (see Revenge of the Sith)
    ISTP: Hates horror, nitpicks everything, likes movies that make some modicum of sense, but easily fooled by movies that pretend they make sense

    Together the INFP and I have a liking of action-adventure movies and kid movies (we see basically every kids fantasy-adventure book adaptation). The INFP sometimes drags me to action movies (Quantum of Solace) and I drag her to comedies (Tropic Thunder). Occasionally we see romantic comedies, "indie" movies, old movies.

    I happen to be a T. I'd have to say that I like movies that have a good story. If the story is terrible, or it's some artsy fartsy movie that doesn't have a plot to speak of, I'll generally be pretty bored.

    The only genre I can say I don't care for is horror. And many of the dumb comedies are just kind of repulsive to me -- although several yrs ago I dated a guy who had a tendency to rent some of these cheesy, silly movies, and I have to say I learned to appreciate some of them.
    Change 'cheesy silly movies' to 'a handful of romantic comedies' and that's pretty much what it's like for me. I tend to find movies either overwhelming (and not in a good way) or boring/stupid.

    I'm not really into action, detective style movies, or romance movies. I have never watched any of the saw movies for instance because they don't appeal to me.

    I like historical films, fantasy films, some horror (if it's really good), some comedies but I prefer stand up comedy for my chuckles.

    I'm open to all kinds of movies, and I can appreciate certain aspects of just about any movie, even if , overall, its shitty.

    My favorites, though, tend to be "arthouse", "cult" films and "midnight movies".

    Examples would be The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Wall, Holy Mountain, 8-1/2, La Dolce Vita, Annie Hall, Henry and June, A Clockwork Orange, Willy Wonka, Naked Lunch, The Yellow Submarine, Fantastic Planet, Jacob's Ladder, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive.

    I also love documentaries--especially about art and artists.

    EDIT: So what do I get out of these movies?

    Well, the documentaries are kind of obvious---I love to learn.

    And as far as the "arthouse" flicks---particularly films like Annie Hall, 8-1/2, and Henry and June----it sort of feeds my need to understand people/explore human relationships.

    And the "cult movies" are, to a large degree, fantasy/escapism for me, but clearly I enjoy escaping into weird worlds/movies that aren't formulaic or predictable.

    That's mostly because I already have a very vivid imagination, and I need something really strange/challenging to help me "escape."

    Actually, I think all this has to do with being NFP, not just F.

    Here is one of my old posts for the one that ddid not see it.
    I have repaired english as muchas I could.



    The ones that went through my "How unspontaneous is too unspontaneous" know that I am pretty good in killing fun and this thread is a continuation of that thread.

    In my head there is a process that mixes thinking, analysing, planning and it is there all the time. I can ignore is for a short periods of time but generally it is always there and this is what makes me who I am.

    But the thing is that this makes me too critical and analytical for everyday life. One good example of this is that I am can't enjoy pop culture.
    My biggest problems are probably movies and I have stoped watching them in general.

    About once a year I go to the movies with someone. But if I am going to watch something that already familiar to me.
    But here things start to complicate.


    Since we got there by car I can already know about how long movie lasts since I know condicions how and where car is parked.
    Since I am interested in this I already know about what it is about and who is playing who. Also I know how it is going to end since almost all moves have happy endings or some things will stay a little bit unsolved so that they can make another one.


    So when I actually sit in my chair I have in a way already seen a movie I want to watch. Also it is not hard for me to reconstruct the details some 10 minutes ahead.
    Also because of my abstract world in which I am every day (in my head) I em extremly hard to impress.

    It has happen to me that I am so bored that instead of watching in the screen I am studing a impact of scenes on people around me.


    Also in this part of the story there is also one more. Which is that there is planty of logical holes.


    Someone uses some special skill and it turns out that this move was a right move. But then in some other situation that person doesn't do the same thing just for the sake of a story even if it is logical thing to do.
    I know it's fiction but I notice this kinds of things always. I will not go into a specifics, but I have found plenty of holes. I am not talking about situations when it is obvious but when there is logical inconsistency that is not that much obvious.


    Since I am highly strategic person I had a huge problem movies like with "Lord of the rings" . For strategic point of view this is nonsense.

    Mordor had the uper hand, offensive position and it managed to lose everything. So if Sauron is really such a bad ass I think he should have made better moves. He should have had gathered and group of Naz'guls and send them forward to raid villages do reduce human numbers before battle even starts.
    Also it makes no sense at all not to leave someone in that chamber at mount Doom. Since that is so important area which must guarded at all costs.
    Once you have that you can start laying siges to mayor cities and towns which are low on resources.
    This is wnat I think about this in short.


    What I am trying to say is that every movie that comes has some serious problems with logic and the only way I can enjoy at least to some degree is that I don't watch it to enjoy but to search for holes.

    I refuse to watch horror/shock/thriller movies. I never enjoy it. I saw Saw1, it was unpleasant but not too bad, but I was profoundly disturbed by saw2...I don't understand how so many people enjoy watching the franchise. neat idea, way too heavy-handed on the execution. I don't like frat-boy comedy, unless it's done very well (and why is there so much of it?) or otherwise cheesy movies. The cheese bothers me instead of amusing me. For mainly that reason, I hate old western movies, and most old movies in general.

    I enjoy most action/drama type movies. rom com's and comedy if done well (even the occasional 'love story' thing for a sappy mood). I like stuff that is focused on the weirdness of the main character's mind, or stuff that introduces me to a new perspective on something....not sure what category that'd fall under.

    I'm not sure there's a F/T correlation, or even any type correlation. perhaps very broad generalizations.

    I love fantasy movies alot. Oh and sci fi movies. I have generally try to avoid movies like amageddon,the day after tommorrow, twister (I did kinda like twister when I saw it at a friends place though), mainly because the plot flaws can be gaping and it takes the enjoyment out of it for me, I do like kids animation though, and have a soft spot for cult movies when I get hold of them. Anything with a solid plot. Dislike horror, and When My flatmate watched Saw in the other room, I was still traumatised from the screams.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
