Anyone who'se been at Psypoke for a while will know that I've made this post countless times before, but here it is again. Questions are fairly simple:

Favourite movie genre? Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Crime, Film-Noir, Drama (most of my favourite movies are dramas), also occasionally Action/Thriller (The Matrix, Kill Bill, etc... then again, most of the dumbest movies are action).

Favourite actor? Samuel L. Jackson all the way. Tom Hanks is also wonderful, Kevin Spacey, Sean Penn, Edward Norton, Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey (I mainly appreciate him for his serious movies, like The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and a handful of others), Gary Oldman (the man's a chameleon!), Robert DeNiro, Al Pachino, Jack Nicholson, Tim Robbins, Christopher Walken, William H. Macy, John C. Reilly...

Favourite actress? Kate Winslet (she's just so talented, and yet fairly unknown except for Titanic.. shes' got MUCH better roles...), Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron...

Least favourite actor? Mark Wahlberg (From Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes). The man just doesn't have any talent at all. Then again, he was a rapper ("Marky Mark) and a model before he became an actor, so...

Least favourite actress? Courtney Love, The Olsen Twins. 'nuff said.

Favourite director? Tim Burton, Quentin Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Peter Jackson (not only for LOTR, the movies he made before are also REALLY good), Martin Scorsese (how can you NOT like him? The man's a genius!), Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Spielberg, Richard Linklater, Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott.

Favourite movie? The following is my top 20:

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
3. The Shawshank Redemption
4. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
5. Pulp Fiction
6. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
7. The Pianist
8. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
9. Fight Club
10. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
11. Magnolia
12. Gladiator
13. Apocalypse Now
14. City of God
15. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
16. Forrest Gump
17. Goodfellas
18. The Big Lebowski
19. Memento
20. Boogie Nights

Honourable mentions: Kill Bill Vol 1+2, American Beauty, Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, Mulholland Dr., Waking Life, Reservoir Dogs, Back to the Future, The usual Suspects, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Casablanca, Big Fish, Being John Malkovich, Amelie, The Sting, and many many more...

So.. answer away!

Favorite movie genre?
Comedies are good, so is Sci-Fi. And, just to differenciate (I'm sure that's spelled wrong) Anime as well.

Favorite actor?
Depends. Mike Meyers is good, sometimes (Austin Powers). Most of the Bond actors are good too, though I wasn't all that impressed with Dalton.

Favorite actress?
Again, it really depends on the movie... some people do good in one movie and suck in others.

Least favorite actor?
I can't narrow it down to any one person...

Least favorite actress?
Any of the "cheerleader" types, where all they can say is "OH! Mah GAWD!" the whole movie. Drives me crazy...

Favorite director:
Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino

Favorite movie?
Stargate. Loved the movie, love the TV show, even love the spinoff. Great concept, and they keep it coming; it doesn't get old, and it even makes sense (well, most of the time).
I liked the original Terminator, and Star Wars 4-6 were good too.
As far as comedy; Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blazing Saddles, The Austin Powers movies, and some of Monty Python's 'The Meaning of Life' too.
And, of course, the LOTR movies.
