From [personal profile] ringsandcoffee: What is your favorite tv and/or movie genre?

Comedy. Smart comedy, usually. I mean, I like MXC and that's pretty crass and vulgar in terms of the language, but damn are they good at wordplay and puns in the process. Same thing for ERB, when you get down to it.

I still watch a couple of MSTs a week, esp lately when we discovered there are new Rifftrax on Amazon Prime.

I like the Road to... movies and... you know what? I think what I really like is snappy wordplay and dialog. Which is very rare in this day and age. A lot of the older movies have dazzling dialog. Better writers and they don't have to go for the cheap shot of a character saying "Dayammmmmn!" as the "funny" reaction.

And that's not just comedies, a lot of noir had it too, and -

So there you go: Snappy dialog and wordplay is my favorite genre!
