My least favorite genre is also action, but I LOVE Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, and Seven Samurai. Although, a good case could be made saying that all of those are more drama than action. So if I were to choose my favorite pure action movie, it's between Leon and T2. Both of those are 9/10's in my book.

I hate Westerns, easily my least favourite genre and as I wouldn't really count Blazing Saddles among them (that goes in comedy) I'll have to go with my number two pick.

Genre: War
Favourite film: Three Kings and Full Metal Jacket

I've never been too enthused with Westerns, but I did think Unforgiven was a great film.

Exactly!

But, if animated musicals count, I'd go with Beauty and the Beast (1991). But I HATE most musicals, otherwise.

If Pulp Fiction is anything, it's not an action movie in my opinion. No action scenes or anything in it.

Least favorite genre: Horror

Favorite movie of the genre: A Nightmare on Elm Street

Yeah, I'd sooner classify Pulp Fiction as sci-fi horror than action.

My least favorite genre in general is probably horror, of which my favorite is The Exorcist. But there are a lot of horror films I really dig, my least favorite genre is really the slasher sub-genre, of which my favorite film is Halloween.

Favorite Film of the Genre: As Good As It Gets

Incredible film. Perfect Performances. I mean, I usually avoid most romantic comedies at any cost, but this one drew me in. Maybe it was Jack, maybe it was Greg, and maybe it was Helen, but something drew me to it, and I've loved it ever since. One of the only [read: many. lol] movies that can get me misty-eyed.

Hey, that's just what I was gonna say. I have this strong adversion to the genre, yet PDL was something unique enough that I admired it regardless.

Them bloody Period Dramas! Actually, Documentary's probably bore the backside off me even more...

However, I have a soft spot for The Blair Witch Project. Not fully Documentary, but it's shot that way.
