Film is just another media to tell a story. Which is why, for me, the story is the most important part of a film. Doesn’t really matter if it’s animation, live-action, 3D, or whatever – a movie needs a good, solid story.
But… sometimes the story is too standard and so predictable, but in the hands of the right director who is able to execute the story well, the film will actually work.
Anyway, I don’t really have a favourite genre – I’ll watch anything as long as the violence and sex in the movie aren’t too graphic. Oh, and I also avoid horror movies.
