I like that rose coloured clingy film you use to wrap meat and stuff in.  I hate the film that developes on chocolate pudding, though.  Nasty.

My fave genres are action/sci fi with Hong Kong/martial arts movies close behind. Oh, and I must admit I can get rather soppy over romantic comedies, but we’ll just keep that between us shall we?  smile

Chary…you’re a goof.

I can like just about any genre - as long as the story is good.  I edited the poll to add “Other”, since reading through, it looked like some other options had been left out.

I used to work in a video store - so I watched everything.

I really liked watching old movies that people might have forgotten about.  I escpecially thought the old horror ones were neat - b/c they were generally scary without the bloody gore of newer movies.

I also like fictionalized stories about real events.

I tend to not watch very bizarre or spoof movies.

Comedies all the way, especially the better Woody Allen films.

To me, the greatest romantic comedy of all time:

‘It Happened One Night’ with Clark Gable, an oldy (well, duh, Dan).

I do believe that, when inflation is taken into account, it is the top-grossing movie of all time, or very nearly so.

It is worth renting!

I dislike tear-jerkers because life is full of that already on its own, who needs a movie to remind you?

Maybe you were thinking of another film Mr. Gable starred in?

I looked it up…

Adjusted top grossing films…

They’ve been adjusted for inflation.

Thanks. I Thought Id be able to edit it later If I’d forgotten a genre then I went back and found I couldn’t.
