Welcome to the Genre Favorites Blogfest, hosted by the illustrious AJC. Today we're going to fess up to our favorite genre in 3 categories plus a guilty pleasure. Here are mine:
My gut answer is classic Romantic Comedy, like When Harry Met Sally, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Notting Hill. But if we consult my favorite movies ever: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them), and Star Wars IV,V & VI, we can't ignore my thirst for Adventure.
Come on, who are you talking to here? The answer to that would be 80s Alternative, like the Cure, Madness, INXS, The Clash, REM, etc, etc. etc, though I'm liking lots of current alternative bands as well, like Stone Sour, Hollywood Undead and Egypt Central
Fantasy, with The Hobbit, all the Harry Potters, and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe being among my all time favorites. But I'm also a sucker for a Classic Romance, like Pride & Prejudice, Emma, and Gone with the Wind.
Guilty PleasuresI...don't feel guilty about any of my pleasures. At least not in these genres. If we were talking TV, however, I'd be forced to admit my unhealthy relationship with The Bachelor. I try not to watch, really I do, but that Chris Harrison is wiley I tell ya, and he always seems to find some way of pulling me back in.
Now, get ye to the Blogfest List so you can keep hopping.
