    No horror movies here. Nope. Nope. Nope!!
    I do love most other movies, war movies, movies set in the past (however past that might be), futuristic movies, romance, comedy.
    One thing I don't enjoy is rude movies. Movies that have lots of swearing for no reason apart from "being cool" and excessive nudity for the same reason. There are a group of actors that do movies like that, they are really funny, but they swear too much and it just makes me feel uncomfortable.

    That's a book adaptation. :agree

    I just watched that this past weekend and really enjoyed it.

    I don't do horror or anything with really disturbing images. I still have that well image from 'The Ring' that gives me nightmares on occasion. We saw a house with a well in the backyard and as soon as I saw the well it was a big No! It's not the story line, it's the imagery that sticks with me.

    As for war movies, I enjoyed Windtalkers for a similar reason @MrsPeel. My grandfather was with the Navajos, so it felt like a connection to him.

    I will not watch anything that ends really sad. I even check for spoilers first if I think it's a possibility. I don't watch holocaust movies either (most war movies) because they are too much. I cannot bear it. IT was awful and a horrific time in history. I do not like reliving it through movies. I also have never and will never watch gory movies. they are nasty and I hate them!

    I'm another one that can't watch most horror or war movies, although I did see Schindler's List and American Sniper but couldn't watch Saving Private Ryan.

    I also love to watch sci fi and action movies and some comedies. I don't really care for the cringe worthy comedies though with the really gross, stupid, almost slapstick humor.

    and I think that Jane Austen with zombies will definitely make me cringe LOL

    oh I am so glad you explained this, I have been trying to find the words to explain some of my dislikes on comedies... I love romantic comedies nd things that make you laugh of a happy laugh... I really dislike the hunor that gets of on taking the mickey of others or , like you said, gross or taki stuff ....

    I prefer old musical comedies, they make me happy. Then I also love all the Molly Ringwald 80s movies. For the most part I don't watch a movie more than once. But, I have some that I'll drop anything to watch. Any Elvis movie whatsoever, Mommy Dearest, Sybil, Sweet Home Alabama, Dirty Dancing, Mulan, & Michael Jackson-This is it.
    I think you all already knew I'm eclectic.

    I had never watched Dirty Dancing, watched it last year because we were going to the musical and then couldn't because I was unwell, so I settled for second best LOL
    I need to watch Mulan!!!
    Loved Sweet Home Alabama
    Now I have a bigger list after reading you girls here of movies to watch!!!

    I love Disney and Pixar movies. I also love a good sad, historical drama like Titanic or Gone with the Wind. Historical movies normally will get my attention. I like romantic comedies but there haven't been too many of those that I like lately.

    I avoid all horror type movies. Yuck. I don't like gory or scary. And I don't like Zombies.

    I am insanely excited about Finding Dory coming out this month!!! I <3 Dory!!!

    I really like Marvel and DC movies ... I just love to suspend my belief just for a little bit and they really do the trick. But if I ever feel like a good cry I just start watching The Colour Purple ... I seriously can't get past the opening scenes before I bawl like a big baby and have to turn it off!
