Drama

(Though I find a lot of imdb's categorizations overlap, and most films can easily fit in several categories. )

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

I've got a wide variety of interests which makes it impossible for me to choose just one genre.

The best I can do is narrow it down to 10 (in no order of course)

Sci-Fi
Horror
Western
Samurai
Historical - Epic/Drama
Adventure
Crime/Gangster/Heist
Fantasy
War
Thriller

My favorites are tied between Science Fiction and Fantasy. (I also love Japanese Animation and a limited amount of American animation too.) Posted Image
