What kind of movies do you like to watch?

I'm a film artist and this Thursday night I'll be doing a talk at "Nerd Nite Orlando" called "Horror Porn Romcoms: The Absurdity of Film Genres" and I would love to do a quick little survey about what kind of movies people enjoy the most and what about a film excites you enough to get you to actually go to the theater or if you are even excited at all.... Get creative, share your love for movies, and maybe even post a genre that you've created- as we all know there are many different ways to categorize the films we love.

Thank you in advance to all those who leave comments, they are very much appreciated and I may even reference some of them in my talk this Thursday night.

    May 9 2013: That is indeed an interesting question...well the way I see it is that media should mostly promote values and spread culture. I am not saying there shouldn't be any divestisment programmes or shows, but there are so many interesting programmes that are never given on television. Also,gossip or news about this and that star are way too overcasted. And to be more specific,I'll give you an example: whenever I turn on the TV I see shows like" are you smarter than a blonde" or titles like this but I never see anything about youngsters that have done something,or who created something. This is how I see things. And moreover,there is a general complaint about kids/teenagers being more and more interesting in cultural activities. And I believe that these shows on TV help this process.
