I like "action dramas" and some comedy. I'm terrible at remembering names of movies.
Of the names that I can remember, I liked the following:
Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them)
The Godfather Movies
History of Violence
all of the Jason Bourne movies
Gangs of New York
Silence of the Lambs
Star Trek movies
I'm not into sappy "girly" movies and I don't like animated movies (IE: Shrek etc) with actors doing voice overs; I prefer real people in movies that I watch, not just their voices. I also don't like most horror movies or movies that are so overwhelmed with special effects that the actors and storyline are considered secondary events.
Since I like to watch a large variety of stuff, my favorites being horror, sci-fi, historical fiction & drama among other things I'll go on to say that I hate chick flicks, especially wedding comedies.
I have no real favorite genre. I'll see a movie if it looks or sounds interesting. I probably only go to one or two movies a year. I like movies that make you think. I LOVED "The Prestige." "Little Big Man" was one of my favorites. I'd really like to see some of Lee Childs' books made into movies. Except I can't figure out who would be good to play Jack Reacher.
I absolutely detest stuff like "Dumb & Dumber" and "Napoleon Dynamite" , that type of humor leaves me cold. I walked out on a date that took me to see "Dumb & Dumber."
