    Well, I can't say that I have one favorite genre.

    Particular faves are screwball comedies, film noir, hard science fiction, historical dramas, and anything with Emmanuelle Beart.

    I enjoy all genres except musicals. I'm particularly fond of teen comedies, which is actually a sub-genre, but definitely my favorite.

    I like films from all genres, but my favorite would probably be horror. And by horror I mean horror in the traditional sense, not most of the crap today that passes as horror.

    Science Fiction and Fantasy are the best. Anime Rules! Comedy is good. Ones that cover many genres at once are great too. [​IMG]
    I just got in from a wonderful fan run 2000+ person science fiction convention named Arisia in Boston. It is always lots of fun. Going to help run the anime room at another wonderful convention in Boston named Boskone in Feb.
    Be sure to check out the World Science Fiction Convention coming to Boston in 2004 (where the prestigious Hugo awards happen each year) if this type of thing interests you.
    Boston is a great area for science fiction/fantasy fans with many others who share the interest plus loads of very famous science fiction and fantasy writers, artists and even actors and other well known people in these genres frequenting the many related conventions and clubs in the area since many live in the area also. Many old time fans even have funny stories about such luminaries in the field as Isaac Asimov. Feel free to PM me or leave a message in this thread if you would like more information about these conventions. [​IMG]

    I would say "good movies", but if pressed would pick horror and musicals.

    I like 'em all except horror, with a few exceptions. Of particular interest to me are war pictures, epics, westerns, noir, and witty comedies directed by Woody and Wilder.

    No favorite at all. Just a question of done well, or not done so well.
