I have a lot of fun in Horror and science fiction. Horror wins as I spend more time cherry picking films across the sub genres.

I am a big fan of horror but voted for adventure as I like fairy tale, pirate and movies like The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.

Same here.

So to end the tie my gut said it's so simple - there were probably more, better, scifi movies I had enjoyed than horror. But, alot of those scifi movies were actually sci-fi/horror and that was the element that I enjoyed. Now, a clever man would also notice Action as a big element that I enjoyed in these movies as well so, clearly, an intelligent man might say action to be the main genre choice. But only a great fool would say Action when it was really a sci-fi or horror movie. So, clearly, I can't say Action, Sci-fi or horror and that leaves Romantic Comedy. Uh, yeah, so Sci-fi...

Since I like a lot of different genres I voted drama; it can contain elements of all the other genres. smile.gif
