a feel for my taste in movies

I’m going to post occasional and probably brief movie reviews here. To start off, I thought it might be a good thing to give readers a feel for my taste in films.

I like a lot of movies and at least something in almost any genre there is. The genres I tend to like more are (in no particular order): comedy, film noir, drama, romance, science fiction, musicals, and classics (which I don’t really think of as a genre myself but a lot of movie sites seem to split them out). The genres I like least are slasher films and horror. I’m not into bloody gorey films much and I’m also easily terrified by supernatural horror, so I avoid all that. The other genres (war, western, historical, silents, animated and anime, etc.) fall in the middle. I like a lot of foreign films that I’ve seen, but I don’t really think of that as a genre. Oh, and I’m not adverse to watching children’s movies at all.

I have a couple of mini-collections of films on dvd and vhs: comics based movies and baseball themed movies. The former is because I also have a large comics collections (though I stopped adding to it a few years ago). The latter just came about. Maybe there are just a lot of great baseball movies.
