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.

"...the luscious love melons of Linnea Quigley are back on the screen in 'Sexbomb,' except that she's no longer Linnea Quigley. She's billed simply as 'Linnea'... So, you might be wondering, where is Linnea Qui... I mean, Linnea? She's exactly where we would expect, wandering around through the background with her breasts hanging out. She's got maybe, oh, eight words to say in this movie, and most of them are 'Here, I brought you some coffee.'"-Joe Bob on SEXBOMB

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.

Westerns   as far as I am concerned,a bad western is better that some "good" movies
Science Fiction....sometimes the cheesier the better
Fantasy....although there have been several that are at the top of the wretched list
Film Noir....gritty,dark and often claustrophobic but great entertainment
Horror....older films mostly;these modern ones are too graphic for me
Historical Epics....like Gone With the Wind or Glory or The Ten Commandments

13. Adventure films (Lone Ranger, Swashbuckler, Pirate, Zorro)

14. Documentaries

15. Disaster Films (esp. 1970s, but also 1990s and more modern ones)

16. Comedy (The Three Stooges, Abbott & Costello, Hope & Crosby, Don Knotts, Mel Brooks, Marx Brothers, Carry On, Ma & Pa Kettle, 80s screwball, Monty Python, etc.)

I generally like most B-movies too, cult classics and all that.

Horror - 60's - 80s era being my fave. Good or bad. Good Being: Cronenberg and Argento. GREAT being: Hospital Massacre. Bad being Umberto Lenzi (but in the nicest way).
Suspense - The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane type of stuff.
Exploitation - I Spit On Your Grave!!!!! I also consider most 80s knockoff slashers to be exploitation too I guess.
Comedy - This Is Spinal Tap, Clerks
Action - Pretty much any 80s- '90 Arnie stuff, also the Death Wish series
Then there's what I call WTF Movies: Rock 'N Roll Nightmare, Cool As Ice and the like.
The last movie I saw in a theater was A History Of Violence which was ok, and prior to that it was the rerelease of The Exorcist. Needless to say I don't like going out to see new movies.

I think I like classic Horror best; but as stated elsewhere, I don't like Slashers, Torture Porn, or Gore.  A movie can be "gory" but I must then be compelled by quality or a complete lack thereof.

Agreed AHD, but I really enjoy the more obscure slashers. Don't like torture porn either - HATED stuff like Hostel. Gore means nothing to me either  - a good horror movie can have offscreen violence and can still be kickass. Like the AWESOME Axe (aka Lisa Lisa for instance).

I think the BEST horror films-even in the last 30 years-had NO GORE-!
The TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE had no gore at all-neither did ALICE,SWEET ALICE,the remake of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS-or-the first HALLOWEEN.Gore is a gimmick-its been around a while-H.G.Lewis used it as a gimmick and-as a whole-his movies sucked. ( I did like 2000 MANIACS-cuz of the banjo music).

I like just about anything (except romance), but I tend to watch bad martial arts flicks, film noir and 50's sci-fi the most.
