My personal tastes in films vary and are not cemented in concrete except for horror flicks I love the blood and gore on the screen only not a psycho just love scary flicks. It makes it hard to find girlfriends, when your favorite choice in movies, is blood and gore. Scary ranks No. 1 in my list, which is horror, action, mystery, suspense, drama, and fantasy. I’m not a big fan of comedies, or romance, films, but I will on occasion watch them. I like an occasional change from horror to documentaries, when the subject, peeks my interest. My first choice in films, would be horror films, I’ve been watching them since I was a child with my Mother. No one else in my family would go with her to watch them except me and I’ve been a fan since. I also enjoy action films like the original gone in 60 seconds, and the original Vanishing Point or Indiana Jones. I guess I choose films by how much of an adrenaline rush, I think I will get from watching the film if it seems boring chances are I won’t even give it a second thought
.What makes a film enjoyable for me, gore, high speed chases, excitement, shoot outs, the unknown, edge of your seat, beyond the normal realm, of life. I’m pretty much an adrenaline junkie and have been most of my life and I choose my films based on this. That’s not to say that I don’t find other areas of film enjoyable, for instance Forrest Gump, O Brother Where Art thou, both very fine films I would watch again. Both films had an emotional impact on the viewers and were unique, with great characters. Both had great story lines and subject matter that keep you awake and interested from beginning to end.
What makes a film un-enjoyable, when their unbelievable, boring, films that tend to drag on forever, and are to complicated to understand. Films that lack suspense, mystery, excitement, action, or drama of any kind and cannot keep you interested....
