Me, I have a zombie and slasher movie thing.  I will go see pretty much any zombie flick that comes out.  No idea how it started.  Well, actually it was seeing Dawn Of The Dead (the original) and Friday the 13th Part 2 (didn't see the first one until afterward) on betamax when I was a kid that got me hooked.

 

Just curious to see what kinds of movies people will go see no matter who is in it or how it looks.

Leonardo DiCaprio films always grab too much of my attention. I'm usually good at ignoring mainstream hype until I see something for myself but there's something about Leo's work that always has me wanting more.

 

I can also add the Fast & Furious series because I grew watching the earlier films with my cousins and we've all tagged into the modded car scene partly because of the success of the series. I'll admit, they're completely unrealistic and the acting is mostly subpar, but I still love the feel of the movies and the general charisma and dominance in the acting.

Disney/Pixar. The one and only Pixar film I don't like is "The Incredibles". My favorite ones are "Cars" and "Ratatouille".

 

And then I guess science fiction movies. There are tons out there but many of them are just b-movie on CG steroids. Nonetheless, I'll always give them a try because sometimes I find a diamond in the rough. For instance, I wasn't sure about "District 9" first. Then I watched it and I think it's one of the best movies of the last decade.

 

I'm into sports movies based on true events too. Coach Carter, The Rookie, Miracle.

 

Almost forgot, I love the Tremors franchise. Burt Gummer is a badass.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

Anything except dramas.  On occasion I will check out a drama...but hopefully it has some violence or profound nudity/profanity.  Grew up going to the movies, and still make an effort to go at least once/twice a week.

I like disaster movies: Twister, Armageddon, Deep Impact, etc.

 

Then, I like movies like: Troy and Gladiator

 

Then, movies like Dances With Wolves, Last of the Mohicans  

 

If Anthony Hopkins is in it, then I'll probably see it. 

 

I like the animal movies like White Fang, Old Yeller, Far From Home

 

Marvel movies of course

 

Use to be, If it had Jim Carrey, Will Smith, Denzel Washington, Anthony Hopkins, I was there.
