Movies, books, and God knows what else.
LOVE music films...CONTROL, THE BLUES BROTHERS, MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL, ONCE...love 'em!
Control <3I love films about anti-heroes. American Beauty, Igby Goes Down, A Clockwork Orange etc.
The movies Katie-Bar-The-Door and I wind up watching over and over again are The Thin Man, The Maltese Falcon, The Thing From Another World and Rio Bravo -- easy-going pace, men in danger but not so much danger they can't wisecrack nonstop and a smart, interesting, no nonsense woman. In fact, I'd say Katie likes those movies even more than I do, if such a thing is possible.
I do like films that deal with film making, those are great. Otherwise my favourites genres are probably Crime, Dark Comedy, Samurai and pretty much anything from the Hollywood New Wave.
I used to enjoy romantic comedies but with the crap actors doing comedies these days I prefer dramas, biopics or thrillers.
Films involving dysfunctional families and makeshift families: Magnolia, The Ice Storm, Boogie Nights, Six Degrees of Separation, The Squid and the Whale, Micmacs, etc.
Musicals. Faves include Chicago and Moulin Rouge!
Time Travel. Ever since I first saw Back To The Future as a kid I've loved time travel. Can't get enough of it. Even the bad movies are worth watching.
I really enjoy psychological thriller type movies - films that have to do with the mind. Some of my favorites include Fight Club, Memento, The Matrix, and most recently - Inception. Great question!
