Weird movies, obviously.  TongueOut

Humorously bad movies in any genre. THE ROOM proves that even romantic dramas can be entertaining if done badly enough.

Horror: Gothic, supernatural or psychological. Not into slashers, gore or torture porn.

Hitchcockian thrillers.

Film noir.

Hard science fiction.

1) Sci-Fi (my favourites are the movies of the 50s & 60s but I love a great Sci-Fi story and love many films from all eras - to me, this genre has more underrated films than any other)

2) Horror (my favourites here are the 1930s Universal Monsters, the 1940s Lewton films, Monster Movies of all eras,  1960s psychological thrillers, 1920s German Expressionist films, 1970s/1980s mind power/supernatural horror, 1980s slasher)

3) Film Noir (so many great films of the 1930s through the 1950s fall under this)

4) Mystery films (Sherlock Holmes, Mr. Moto, Charlie Chan, Bulldog Drummond, Philo Vance, Hitchcock thrillers, etc.)

5) 1980s/1990s Action Hero films (Stallone, Ah-nold, Van Damme, Lundgren, etc.)

6) Martial Arts Films (Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Fake Bruces, Tony Jaa, etc.)

7) Blaxploitation (Sweet Sweetback, Blacula, Shaft, Foxy Brown, Coffy, etc.)

8) Superhero movies

9) Weird movies (especially those with mind tripping what is reality scenes?)

10) Animated movies (including anime)

11) Sports movies

12) Fantasy films

Re-posting because I thought my first one was too vague... and didn't think to edit it until after I deleted it.  Twirling

Tokusatsu: Shows like Ultraman or Superhuman Barom 1 are fantastic and full of rubber monsters! Tokusatsu is mostly seen in TV shows, but there are movies that are technically of that genre.

Sci-Fi: I'm more of a monster person, and I particularly like the really bad ones from the 50s and earlier.

Horror: Even though horror usually has no effect on me, I still enjoy watching it. Usually paranormal horror is my favorite, as I'm not too big on slashers or movies filled with gore for the sake of gore (like Saw or Deathproof, bleck).

Comedy: I always enjoy a good laugh every once in a while. And sometimes I like to get those laughs from something that isn't... B-Rated. My personal favorites are Blazing Saddles, Zoolander 1 and 2, as well as Princess Bride.

"You may have to rethink your strategies, gentlemen."

"Hahahahaheheheh.... Baretaka!!!"

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
