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

(from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_genre)

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. cool

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 smiley
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

Re: Your Favorite Movie Genres? by whiz(m): 6:28am On Jul 05, 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 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  angry
