Look ma, a poll! :)
Anyway, I don't think any one genre holds sway in my DVD collection - I've got a little bit of everything.

I have a little bit of everything, but my collection is by far dominated by Hong Kong action movies. For about $4-6 each, you can stock up on acceptable quality imports from DDDHouse (Universe Laser). If you want to spend a few more dollars, the Mega Star versions go for about $12-$20, and the quality is a bit better. If you buy "Media Asia" movies from Amazon or Suncoast, they are most likely Universe Laser productions with the Media Asia label stuck on, and marked up $15-$25. Sometimes you'll find a Mega Star under the Media Asia label.

About 80 of my DVD's are Hong Kong movies. I replace the Universe/Mega Star versions when there is a quality rerelease from a North American Distributor that treats them with respect. This means uncut, anamorphic widescreen, original Cantonese or Mandarin language track, original music and sound effects. Colombia/Tristar does a pretty good job of this; I avoid the butchered Dimension (Disney) releases like the plague unless there is no other choice (Fist of Legend).

Note to Disney: If you rename the movie, cut scenes, replace the soundtrack (westernizing the music), offer only a dub, and don't even bother getting the original actors to dub themselves, you are not catering to the niche market that buys these movies.

Ok, I'll admit it outright! I am a self confessed SF-techno-gadget-geek!! A large percentage is Science Fiction.
And yes, many of them are just horrid! :D

It's kind of difficult to catagorise my collection because I consider at least 90% of the titles to be action. While Se7en, Clear and Present Danger and The Sopranos have little in common they're all action to me.

Largest is the general Drama category (which doesn't include Cult dramas and Hitchcock), then Comedy not far behind, and Sci-Fi which isn't far behind that. Horror and Sci-Fi combined (and there is a lot that mixes) would be a total winner if they were the same category.
