There are certain actors who I like so much that I will watch anything they're in, though there's only a handful of them.

Genre wise, I'm open to anything if it interests me. I don't watch many romcoms, unless there's someone in them that I really like, though there have been a few I've enjoyed. Mainly I watch sic-fi, fantasy and comic book films. I like horror a lot- though, as seems to be the common opinion, I'm not into the torture porn stuff. It's a shame that the Saw films slid down that slope because I thought the first one was really clever.

I like musicals, I've seen a few Westerns. Not really a martial arts fan. I do enjoy a good action film now and then too.

Really, it depends what kind of mood I'm in, I guess.

I also steer well clear of those torture flicks but don't mind a bit of horror, especially good werewolf and vampire flicks ( e.g. 30 Days of Night as opposed to Twilight ) and Asian horror.
My favourite genre though is sci-fi whether old, new, blockbuster or B-grade I'll watch it and probably love it. If I go to the the cinema it's usually to see the latest sci- fi.
Apart from that I'll watch a wide range of films except maybe musicals and Disney Animation.
I have a soft spot for Japanese cinema with that and sci-fi making up the bulk of my dvd collection.

If it's a film I'll watch it. I get a lot of stick for that

Porn is a genre we can all enjoy. But then, there are many sub-genres of the genre.

I enjoy all genres, but not equally. Comedy, I find, is often considered a 'lesser' genre. I am not sure why. It cannot be because there are many poor examples of the genre, because that can be said to be true of any genre. Genres are there for different moods. I am not always in the mood for existential Russian drama, but sometimes Tarkovsky is the only director I want to watch. At the same time, if I have friends over on a Friday night for beer and pizza, I do not think that Mirror is the best option. Euro Trip may well be.

There is something to be said for arranging one's film collection by genre. If one did, however, one wonders where genre-crossing films might be placed.

I'll watch pretty much any genre of film really if I hear good things about it. Can't stand musicals though and I find even the well reviewed modern horror films I watch to be seriously annoying and generally crap. Let The Right One In and The Orphanage are the only two recent exceptions I can think of right now. Never been that big into westerns or martial arts films either actually.

Anything goes but I have to be in the mood for animation or musicals and they have to have received good reviews. Anything else needs only decent reviews to get me interested.

Cinema visits are usually for tent-pole sci-fi/superhero/action films that lose too much on Blu-ray.

At home, I watch more indie dramas than anything else and catch up on hidden horror gems that I may have missed although torture porn can do one as far as I'm concerned, you can't beat a good ghost/supernatural story. I'm a sceptic/atheist/non-believer in anything supernatural but I love stories about it.
Except the Bible.

Are you kidding? Say what you like about the veracity of the claims the book makes, the bible is a cracking story. Disasters, plagues, sea creatures, burning bushes (steady), a king born from humble beginnings, the whole Rashomon thing it has going on in the second half, and then it gets a bit preachy, but ends with a WTF final chapter that knocks it out the park, going a wee bit mental.

If that's all too much for you, you could read Christopher Moore's "Lamb", which is the gospel as told by Jesus' childhood friend. Fun read.

I often think that the bit between the ages of 12 and 32 in Jesus' life would make a fascinating book/film/TV series/ The bible sort of glosses over that whole, rather significant, part of his life. Y'know, most of it...

Read Lamb. It's very enlightening.

Well. Not really. But it's funny.

The Genre I love is the schlocky horror films with one or more of the following zombies/monsters/aliens/mutant sea creatures

The Genre I dislike is Superhero movies, but worse than a Superhero movie, is an origin Superhero movie.

I tend to watch anything, though I do give quite a few modern comedies and rom coms a miss, they just don't do anything for me. Other than that, it's anything from silent movies to martial arts. I suppose I am more inclined to watch a horror movie more than anything else.

To be fair, I'll watch anything.

The genres I tend to prefer are Horror (the ones with the really horrible gore, although that could be a genre unto itself), Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi and just generally weird films that happen to take my interest.

The one genre I avoid like the plague is western, however. I know loads of people love it, and I can see the merits in it, but the only good westerns I've seen have either been by Sergio Leone, or been in the last 10 years (like True Grit.)

But, if it looks interesting, I'll watch it.

I avoid musicals, foreign films and noir type stuff with a voiceover constantly through it

thrillers and Dramas are more appealing as i get older. Enjoyed 'Bully' the other day- that was a bit left field for my usual taste. maybe I want to think more nowadays??

wow this post is like therapy

Genrelly speaking only action and horror. I rarely venture outside of this bubble.

Don't have much time for out and out comedies
