The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same. Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation. Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all. Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!
What’s your favorite movie genre?
This is a question I don’t really have an answer for since my favorite movies are across multiple genres. I love a good story, and good stories are not genre bound.
It would probably be easier to give some of my favorite movies and see what genres they encompass. For many years I considered Constantine my favorite movie.
It’s still up there, but I have so many favorites that I can’t just considering one movie the One (…just realized this is hilarious because of Keanu Reeves). I of course love Advent Children as a side effect of loving/being obsessed with Final Fantasy VII,
and many other animated movies have my heart. Pixar’s Ratatouille I can claim as a favorite: my favorite Pixar movie,
I still think I lean slightly towards Frozen because sisterly power and female representation, but they both made me cry.
Then there are the Marvel movies (which is also Disney let’s not forget lol). I love all of the Phase One films, though oddly Thor is probably my least favorite. It’s not a bad movie, but I prefer Thor: The Dark World, and of course I love Avengers for various reasons.
Though, like Big Hero 6 and Frozen, I don’t know if I could decide between it and Guardians of the Galaxy.
So looking at this list, I’d say I like dramas with sci-fi and/or fantasy elements.
What’s your favorite movie genre? Is it more of a mixed bag like mine or you can definite pinpoint one specifically?
I look forward to your answers in the comments!
