Do you like movies filled with action? Perhaps you like romance movies, or romantic comedies. Or do you prefer others like: Vampire movies Epic movies Horror movies Comedy Drama Suspense Fantasy Or even sad movies? It just depends on what kind of mood I am in, I like all sorts of types of movies. But my favorites have been drama, suspense, and epic movies, and fantasy. Now, what are a few of your favorites? Could you recommend a few to me? I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings, as well as the Shawshank Redemtion. I am looking forward to renting 'Premonition' as soon as I can, has anyone seen this movie?

I like all sorts of movies, but I'd say my top favorite type of movie is comdies. I love to laugh and sometimes you just need to go away for a couple hours to watch something and just laugh and not think. But I also really like mystery, drama, horror, & suspense. I really want to see Premonition too, but probably won't see it until it gets on one of our movie channels. This weekend we've been watching quite a few movies and all were good. We watched How to Eat Fried Worms, which was cute, today. Yesterday we watched Benchwarmers, which was REALLY good we thought & The Devil Wears Prada, which was good too.

premonition is a very good movie (says my sis-in-law) the movies i like r: action (kung fu is my fav) "the one" with jet li comedy (robin william & bill cosby stand ups r hillarious) eventho i hate scary movies (im a chicken) saw 1 was good. i think it was better then the second romantic comedy (in her shoes) with cameren diaz (non stop tears,laughter,& smiles) i cant wait 4 the simpsons to come out!

Thank you so much for the response. You should watch the movies I have recommended as well. They are great movies. I love scary movies, if they aren't too gory, but I just loved SAW 1, and I agree, the second and third weren't as good.

Well, I think I like comedy and suspense best among those movie styles. I like to share comedy with my best friends and laugh till tears come down. It is good entertainment. And suspense are usually so cool and the plot is pretty attracting. The plot style of suspense always appealing to me.

In my opinion a movie should be interesting,rich and stylish.I watch all kind of good movies.I like slap stick comedies,great historicals s,thrillers and action movies. But for me the murder mysteries always have an edge over the the others.

I would probably say 90% of my film collection is some sort of horror, or psychological horror (like the saw films). Other than that the rest is probably mainly comedy and then I have a few of the animated films like toy story etc. I love horror, its great. However I have not yet seen a film I have been scared of. Nothing seems to scare me. But I can understand why people find these films scary. On occasion I have jumped maybe, but never actually felt scared, or can't watch something. :)

There are so many different types of movie I like...comedies, suspense movies, thrillers, musicals, true life films etc. I'd say favourite of all though are romantic movies, especially of the tragic kind. They tend to be the movies I cherish most of all.

i like to watch comedy movies but my favourite is action with those never racking and spine chilling action scenes. Action movies always excites me,as though those action scenes are enacted by myself.

I prefer comedies. I love Jim Carey, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, Goldie Hawn, etc. Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn is one of my favorites, and almost anything with Jim Carey or Adam Sandler. I love to be able to laugh.

It depends, but mostly I like romantic comedies/comedy. Movies like Something New, Brown Sugar, The Devil Wears Prada. Movies like that are my favorites. I do like action movies but it depends. I don't like scary/horror movies...not because they scare me but because I think they are stupid. I also like thriller type movies, like that Gothika that Halle Berry did, that was a good one. Made me think and figure out who did what.

for me i would preferably choose the action movie like the movie played by jet li, its very interesting, and you know you will be able to learn a lot from actions just like defending yourselpf from any threats of deaths and etc. We know a fact in todays life we are surrounded with different threats of life. one of the good example of movie that we are going to prefer is that the action movies

i like comedy, love stories, drama. even more when one movie incorporates all of these types into one. i am sucker for these tpes of movies. as normal life is really like this. i really like non-overacting movies as it seems more real. i sometimes look up to these movies to reflect on my life.

i prefer suspense/thriller movies. it gives me more excitement and they make me think on what's gonna happen next. suspense movies are the type when you have to finish them unlike romantic movies wherein most of them, you know what's gonna be the ending.

i have seen premonition. i won't say it's a must watch film. but it's a good one to watch. it has an interesting story and so many twists and turns. you'll love it perhaps. just like you, i watch movies depending on my mood. but most of the time, i like sci fi films, action and thrillers. i also go for comedies and romantic ones. and shawshank redemption is really one of my favorite films! touching story. i can watch it many times without feeling bored. i also like lord of the rings, starwars, harry potter and many more. i am a movie addict. anne
