What genre of movie do you most commonly watch?

All right, movie buffs! This question is for you. Say it’s movie night. You’ve got your popcorn, a cozy blanket, comfy slippers and your TV remote in hand. What are you watching? A comedy? A horror movie? An action movie? A rom-com? A Western? A documentary?

You might watch a lot of movies, but which genre do you find yourself watching most often? You can select up to two answers in this poll, so scroll on down and cast your vote. Thanks, and enjoy the show!


  1. I don’t mind campground movies if other campers can’t hear or see them. In summer it’s usually not dark enough until 9:00pm. There are few things as irritating as hearing someone’s movie blasting through a campground.

    • It’s a test to see if you need new glasses, Tony. The category is “Rom-Coms”. I could give you an interpretation of your spelling, but I would certainly get some R-rated replies. 😀 –Diane

  2. Black and White. I have a TV in my shop and have changed the color to black and white for everything. Old old color TV did not bother me. The new color in the led / lcd TVs hurts my eyes and brain. About 5 years ago we went to the movie theater for the first time in 20 some years and that color really bothered me. I think that “the new color” and scents in everything is what is making so many people crazy these days. (half serious / half joking)

  3. Having worked on Project Apollo on both the ascent and decent phases until late 1969, I always tend toward space/science fiction with action movies my second choice. Stay safe, Stay well.

  4. Been a fan of sci-fi movies since I was a kid. Growing up with films like Star Wars, Star Trek, Tron, Last Starfighter, Silent Running, Close Encounters, The Black Hole left me with a sense of wonder, a strong belief in the scientific method and an optimism about humanities future. (One that has been tempered, but not dulled, by dealing with sooooo many stodgy, stuffed shirt conservatives over the decades…)

  5. Comedies are missing their edge with the political correctness crap and western seem to be fading away. And some sci-fi’s are ok. Country has enough drama don’t need to watch anymore and TV is just to da*n depressing and reality has gone over the edge and that includes, pawn stars, American pickers and the list goes on. And dancing with the stars, how about dancing with the working class. Stars can afford dance lessons. And haven’t visited a theatre in years I wait for Redbox or stream if the price is reasonable.

  6. I decided years ago, not to patronize an industry that makes its employees super wealthy, only to use that wealth and celebrity to tell me how terrible America is and that white male heterosexual conservatives must be ‘canceled’ (even though most actors fall in to that very group).

    • If TV is “the devil’s box”, the internet must be his playground. The internet has much more hurt, hate, and discontent than tv ever had / or has.

  7. I typically watch movies that are in black and white, but I rarely watch them at all. Two or three hours is longer than most movies can hold my attention. I record movies that interest me and fast-forward through stuff that annoys me (can’t stand watching stupid characters, characters so evil they lack any redeeming aspects, or ridiculous plot twists). Sometimes the fast-forwarding gives way to the delete button and I breathe a sigh of relief that I am free of that particular movie and vow to never waste time on it again. There are a few movies that I enjoy and watch when I stumble upon them — Legally Blonde, Reds 1 or 2, The Expendables 1, 2, or 3, My Cousin Vinny, and The Big Chill.

  8. Haven’t watched any of the new movies, they are too vulgar/violent and I have no desire to see that. I use to watch WW-2 Naval action movies, but after serving 26 years in the Navy, seeing new ships with non-period equipment in the background, it just spoiled it for me. So documentaries on YouTube is about it for me and the wife.

  9. DW and I don’t care to listen to the foul language used in most movies so most of our movie watching is old westerns where there was censors to keep it clean. I know society thinks all that bad language is acceptable but we don’t. Our vocabularies are developed enough that we don’t need to use or hear it.

    • Yes, thank you! Older movies without the foul language much better. I don’t understand why the current generations think they need to use such language. I’m not a prude, but wow folks get over it, use your brain 🧠.

    • I’m with you on this. The older movies are way better than what is produced today. I don’t need to hear cussing, they can find other colorful metaphors to make the same statement. We have watched one of our favorite series the Thin Man comedy/mystery movies with William Powell and Myrna Loy several times and somehow they conveyed the idea that someone was murdered without showing all of the ugly effects. The older movie producers had to be creative to convey a concept due to restrictions thus making the movie in my opinion better. Today’s show and say all movies takes the creativity out of movie making.
