I like...

So I was thinking earlier about my taste in movies. I do my Random Movie Review Blog and I'm pretty good about knowing which movies I'll like and which I won't, even before I go into a film. But one thing I discovered was that while I like many different kinds of films, if it's something I want to watch more than once, it has to be at least a little cerebral, or very, very fun. For example, my two favorite movies are The Usual Suspects and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. They're stories about people and each one you have to watch multiple times just to get the full meaning behind them. Don't get me wrong, I can watch an action movie like Die Hard or Mr. & Mrs. Smith multiple times too, but they don't require as much thinking. They don't get you as involved. There aren't multiple layers of story. You can watch it a few times and you get it. Then you just watch it if it's really, really fun: something with the right amount of banter and explosions and fights.

It's funny because I look at the movies I own, and the majority of them are either Drama, Action or both. Or Romance. There's a good bit of Romance in there as well, I am a chick after all.

Question of the Day: What kind of movie do you like?
