    I think the difference for me is that the movies I listed save for The Killer have actual stories that are incredible. John Wick and Taken are just violent movies for the pure sake of violence.

    I'm looking at The Pink Panther, which I've enjoyed many times. It's on one of those channels which offers a synopsis prior to the film. Was interesting to hear that Peter Sellers was a last-minute casting and that he essentially switched roles with Peter Ustinov, who would take his part in Topkapi.

    Has anyone seen Topkapi? It's supposed to be pretty good. Both films were shot in '64.

    John Wick- Not bad
    Taken- Maybe the worst movie ever made.
    In my opinion, of course.

    My favorite “genre” is anything the Coen’s do, while it’s not really a genre, it’s definitely a style.

    And other than the regular genres, I really like “mockunentary’s” such as the Christopher Guest series.

    Brilliant movies.

    I like movies that immerse you into the culture, dining and shopping experiences, and recreational opportunities of the big city.

    Falling Down is its own genre.

    I think we all at one time or another felt that way after a bad day at the office.

    Just ask UF grad Milton.

    One of my favorite Lee Marvin movies is where he is stranded on an island with a Japanese pilot. I saw it once on TMC and haven’t been able to find the title

    I found a 30 minute video by the director of Hell in the Pacific that might be worth the watch if you liked that movie......Pretty interesting story, seems both Lee Marvin and the Japanese actor fought in WW11. When they made the movie in 1968 Marvin didn't speak Japanese and the Jap actor didn't speak a word of English but they quickly put aside their differences and became drinking buddies and best friends. Pretty interesting stuff about the difficulties of making that movie.

    BTW, the other actor is Toshiro Mifune, one of my all-time favorites and a regular in Akira Kurosawa films.

    I don't have a singular favorite genre but I can rarely resist a cerebral dark (but not pitch black) comedy, especially something that pokes fun at conventional film tropes. Loved Edgar Wright's Cornetto trilogy, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End.
