I'm Interested

I consider myself to be somewhat of a movie buff. I am a big horror movie junky, but I watch a ton of movies from most genres. I'd like to know what everyone's top 3 movies from the following genres are. Here are mine:

Horror: Jaws, The Shining, Halloween

Comedy: Animal House, Ghostbusters, There's Something About Mary

Action: Die Hard, Kill Bill, The Warriors

Triller/ Suspense: The Game, The Usual Suspects, Fight Club

Foreign: Life Is Beautiful, Battle Royale, Pan's Labrynth

Teen: Breakfast Club, The Outsiders, Better Off Dead (really a comedy, but..)

Drama: The Music Within, Goodfellas, Crash

War: Platoon, Black Hawk Down, Full Metal Jacket

So...what are yours? Any other genres you want to include?


  1. OMG!! I'm so glad you have Battle Royale on your list. I LOVE that movie!

    Teen: Empire Records, Pretty In Pink, Get Over It

    Classics: The Seven-Year-Itch, The Philadelphia Story, Some Like It Hot

    Musicals: Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Singin' In The Rain, Guys and Dolls

    Comedy: Role Models, Anchorman, The Hangover

    I dunno, it's hard for me to pick a top 3, haha!

  2. awesome assignment, haha. here we go:

    Horror: Saw, Saw 4, Saw 2

    Comedy: Anchorman, Step Brothers, Old School

    Action: Wanted, 300, Transformers

    *Here is where my categories get a little hazy

    Thriller/Suspense: Fight Club (favorite of all time), Man on Fire, The Dark Knight

    Drama: Crash, Sleepers, Blow

  3. Lila- Battle Royale is definitely one of my favorite movies ever. I LOVE Chiaki Kuriyama!! I actually have an autograph from her when she played GoGo in Kill Bill.

    Mr. O. - A funny thing about the Saw series. I took my wife to see Saw on our first date (because I'm romantic like that). and they have pretty much put out a new one every year around our anniversary :) Saw 2 was definitely my favorite.

  4. GAH! SO tricky for a seriously non-movie-buff person like me... But here goes:

    Horror: Haven't really watched many 'horror' movies (at least, that I can remember... I think I probably blocked them out!) But I have seen Jaws. That can count for three, right?

    Comedy: ANCHORMAN, A Fish Called Wanda, The Hangover

    Action: Terminator 2, Transformers (does this count?), Indiana Jones (any of the first three)

    Thriller/ Suspense: The Dark Knight, Fight Club, The Bourne movies (I count three in one!)

    Foreign: Amélie, The Spanish Apartment (L'Auberge Espagnol), Tais Toi

    I'm not so much into teen, drama or war movies, so I'm replacing them with:

    Animated: Spirited Away, The Emperor's New Groove (Disney), The Nightmare Before Christmas... I could go on and on...

    Arthouse/Independent-y Type Films Little Miss Sunshine (favourite movie ever!), Garden State, American Beauty

    And I have no idea where it should go, but I LOVE Snatch! (Both the movie and the real thing... HA!)

    Cool idea, Caped Tirader!

  5. Horror: Dead Silence; Darkness; 1408
    Comedy: American Psycho 2; Hamlet 2000 (seriously, have you ever watched Ethan Hawke act? hysterical); 50 First Dates
    Action: The Resident Evils
    Thriller/Suspense: Red Eye, Flight Plan; Disturbia
    Foreign: Pan's Labyrinth; The Orphanage; Rashomon
    Teen: Breakfast Club; Weird Science; St. Elmo's Fire
    Drama: Atonement; The Illusionist; The Prestige
    Musicals: Hair; Hairspray; Crybaby (that totally counts!)
    Sci-fi/Dystopian: Minority Report; Children of Men; 12 Monkeys
    Also, I love Gosford Park which sits in some weird british-y subgenre of dry comedy.

  6. Teacup Girl- nice list...the nightmare before Christmas is a great one!

    Ash- I LOVE the orphanage...have it saved on my instant netflix queue

  7. What about the "after School special" genre?

  8. Good question Dr. Zibbs. I would say my top three are definitely:
    The Wave (this one is fantastic)
    Pssst! Hammerman's After You (also fantastic)
    Schoolboy Father (Rob Lowe and Dana Plato)

  9. My top 3 movies of all time are:
    Death at a Funeral
    Love Actually
    Hope Floats
