Im making a poll but but i don't fully understand the nuances of genres so bear with it

IMO, when executed well, tragedies are the best.

While I'd like to say I have a pretty wide range of movie tastes, I'm a sucker for Comic Book and Scifi flicks.

I don't even know how you can have only one favourite genre of film. They all have so much to offer. Like, how even.

I don't even know how to classify all the genres. Like, what is Pi? I guess it's a thriller, but... I guess I just don't really think of films in genres. Like what would Taxi Driver be? Action? Thriller? Drama? I don't even know

Drama would be my favourite though.

Thanks for offering the opposite of my point, so that readers will know what I definitely don't mean.

idk the movie Pi. Taxi Driver would be Drama which I stupidly forgot.

Yea they all have a lot to offer but ime (in my experience) some have more to offer than others at least for me.
#20
I don't know if I have a legit "favorite movie," but if there was a list, I know that The Big Lebowski would be a contender for #1


So I probably like comedies first. Yea, I definitely do. Science fiction second.

Really? After binge watching foreign romance movies the other day I'm pretty sure just about every genre has plenty to offer

I've never seen it but just knowing what it is was enough to make me lol.

I finally looked up a scene from it :

lol


OT: I usually prefer what is normally thrown into the 'drama' category. Off of that list I would have to go with a well-executed tragedy as well. It's worth knowing that I know very little about film/theater and I can't even recall a truly great film that I've seen.

nah that's trash. the question "how does humanity react to contact?" can be reformulated and answered in so many different ways.

I was just giving a comedic example of the portrayal of aliens.

I like aliens in films because it allows us to see how ****ed up our own society is, but makes it more believable because it's under some guise of "It's okay, it's actually them and not us"

And then you realize that whatever plagues that alien species actually happens here, right now, on Earth

At least that's how it is supposed to be viewed on Star Trek, for example.

The issue of human contact is an entirely different conversation tho

Alien isn't really a genre though, sic-fi doesn't necessarily mean aliens. Movies with Aliens can be comedies or dramas or thrillers or w.e.
