    I only like Horror movies and movies with a lot of explosions and body parts flying all over the place.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    Haha! You may have to corner each voter individually to get the answer.

    Musicals aren't in my top favorite genres, though there's a few good ones like Into the Woods -- a slightly morbid, realistic twist on well-known fairy tales.

    Lessee. Comedy, horror, crime (by this I hope you mean like...heist films, or detective films ), war, sci-fi.

    Well, if it's morbid, then ok. like the original versions the Brothers Grimm tales.

    This kind of question always strikes me as inane. Who worth talking to really cares about the trappings, in fiction? What does it matter?

    What matters is if the film (if we're talking about film, as we are here) has something of merit to say, and if it does a good job saying it. If it chooses to use space ships to express itself, then all right. If it uses horses and revolvers or long, burning gazes, then fine. They're all just tools. The purpose is expression.

    It's harder to find a good idea, well expressed, than it is to find a diverting bit of image wank.

    Great points my good sir! Art is art.

    Though I imagine that the purpose of the thread was simply to determine what genres people tend to gravitate towards. And given a series of movies from different genres that I find equally enjoyable, there are some I might choose over others. Or if I went to the theater and new nothing about any of the movies except what was on the poster, I might choose x over y. (But yes, it is all a very superficial sort of evaluation)
