Had a thought the other day. I've seen plenty of recommend me a movie thread. I wouldn't mind seeing how much of a difference recommendations would be if you aren't a fan of the particular genre a movie came from.

As for me I get bored easily with westerns, however every time Once upon a Time in the West comes on I can't help but watch the whole thing. Jason Robards and Charles Bronson were amazing in it. Considering I've never been a fan of Bronson that says a lot.

I quite enjoy Cannibal The Musical & South Park The Movie. But musicals other than those two can fuck right off.

Hmm... The Searchers and High Noon for westerns. Apocalypse Now for war movies.

Edit:
The first two Hunger Games for YA movies.

I'm pretty sure "Tyler Perry movies" is a genre.

Also, put me down for not liking musicals with the exception of the South Park Movie and maybe that Muppet movie with How-I-Met-Your-Mother-Guy.

My friend and I drove by a decommissioned mental hospital over the weekend. We were reading about the buildings and apparently they were the original filming on-location sets for Shutter Island. But the nearby buildings were being torn down at the same time, and they didn't want to shift the production schedule, so they moved the locations to elsewhere in MA.

PS. Actors are not genres.

Not a movie, but the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In general I cannot stand musicals, but the Buffy musical is so good.

Joss Whedon wrote all the songs and composed them himself, despite never before having tried to create music of any kind. And all the actors actually did their own singing. Some are naturally great singers but others, including lead actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, had to take on weeks of voice training and spend days in the studio to get it right.

And it really fits into the narrative theme of the season. It comes at a point in the show where all the main characters are fucked up and not dealing with their issues. Then a singing demon shows up and forces them all to sing their darkest secrets out loud, then the characters all have to deal with the shit they'd been hiding from each other.

Joss Whedon is mostly terrible, IMO. Toy Story, Cabin in the Woods, Avengers, and Winter Soldier are the only things I like from him. The rest of his stuff is either churned out BS or stuff that appeals to aspy people - Buffy, Firefly, etc. He seems like a loser, too. He rage quits the Internet every few years.

I don’t like gangster/Mafia films... if you need to involve chainsaws in a coke deal you’re doing it wrong. But Goodfellas is absolutely legendary.

Buffy is in my opinion the best show in its broad genre (horror/science fiction/super hero/fantasy). I could leave or take pretty much all the rest of the stuff Whedon did, but Buffy hits every note that it attempts to.

Documentaries are, well, a genre I try to avoid hard, but I'll never forget Soul in the Hole. Maybe it was this perfect setting I had, when I watched it: a small cinema near Zülpicher square, which no longer exists, the smell of summer, the one you get after it rained, while the sun was shining -- and nice company, of course. The seats had that worn out quality, one that makes them much more comfortable in my memory, than they actually were. Anyway, it's hard to let go of things like that, so I guess, I understand the kid the film was all about a bit better now... I never watched it again, though.

Oh yeah, Biopics, I feel the same way about and there was no perfect setting ever, to make me feel better while watching them. Savage Messiah changed all that. Not for long, still, I enjoyed this exception to the rule.
