The most popular movie genres are:
Action - generally involves a moral interplay between "good" and "bad" played out through violence or physical force
Adventure - involving danger, risk, and/or chance, often with a high degree of fantasy.
Comedy - intended to provoke laughter
Drama - mainly focuses on character development
Fantasy - speculative fiction outside reality (i.e. myth, legend)
Horror - intended to provoke fear in audience
Mystery - the progression from the unknown to the known by discovering and solving a series of clues
Romance - dwelling on the elements of romantic love
Thrillers - intended to provoke excitement and/or nervous tension into audience

It was actually difficult for me to choose only 5.
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by diddy4(m): 4:12pm On Jun 24, 2006|
it depends on my mood and the occasion. if im with a date, im going for the romance unless she has something else in mind.
i watch action-comedy and comedy alot. helps me relax and loose stress.
the other ones i see them when i feel like an M16 agent.
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Seun(m): 4:46pm On Jun 24, 2006|
I like romantic comedies. And I like adventure fantasies with a lot of action!

|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Kadeejah(f): 3:12am On Jul 02, 2006|
horror and comedy like scary movie 1-4 nd all that ish
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Seun(m): 10:59am On Jul 02, 2006|
I absolutely hate horror movies, because they trivialize murder and turn it into entertainment. I hate movies with bad endings too: there are enough bad endings in real life, so when I'm watching a movie I want a good ending damnit! If I wanted to see violence or bad endings I would be watching the middle-east drama CNN, not a movie!
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by molluma(f): 3:28pm On Jul 02, 2006|
i feel u seun. i hate bad endings enuf of that is happening in reality, why spoil fantasy. i love comedies but prefar thrillers.
i dont mind horrors but i think action movies are over rated.
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by desiree(f): 8:04pm On Jul 02, 2006|
I like the fusion romance and comedy, i watch a bit of thriller though but it doesn't do it for me like my rom/com does
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by ify2love2(f): 9:47am On Jul 03, 2006|
We should not just say because a movie has bad ending and dislike it or that it contend violence and discredit it. Pretend as if you did not just watch the bad ending and keep up the moral there. Action pack e.g. Unclad WEAPON
Lord of the ring i have watched it, but unable to complete it maybe i will try to real watch it,even if it is not my stuff.
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by aykay(m): 12:44am On Jul 04, 2006|
anything that involves guns, fast cars, explosions, undercover agents, real baddies, hot babes, fight scenes. my favs are bourne supremecy , bad boys 2 and four brothers.cant get enough of them
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by whiz(m): 6:28am On Jul 05, 2006|
Action-Comedy for me remains my favourite
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Grizzly(m): 3:00am On Jul 06, 2006|
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Seun(m): 1:53am On Jul 11, 2006|
Why horror? If you want horror, why not just watch CNN or murder documentaries?
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Grizzly(m): 2:08am On Jul 11, 2006|

|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Busta(f): 4:30pm On Jul 11, 2006|
Horror Movies Baby
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Seun(m): 12:08pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Comedy is without a doubt the most popular movie genre. Wow, so people really do love to laugh!
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by bluenubian(f): 12:12pm On Jul 17, 2006|
its all about having a good time, plus with comedys i dont mind watching them over and over again cause it stays funny, other genres i watch it once and thats it.
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by Seun(m): 12:21pm On Jul 17, 2006|
I know what you mean. I keep watching episodes of friends over and over again!
|Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by ThiefOfHearts(f): 10:55pm On Dec 05, 2006|
I like Thrillers, psychothrillers especially the foreign ones. Asia is known for GREAT psychothrillers. They're like horror without the unnecessary gore.
Comedies are cool but I wouldnt go to the theatre for them unless someone else is paying
I mostly like foreign action movies like City of God. The american ones are just cliched rubbish time and time again
I hate Romance Movies. yuck. so irritating and too damn dramatic with the cutsy rubbish
