Genre Favorites Blogfest
One blogfest, four favorites! Hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh :)
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!
Hope I don't bore anyone, but as you'll see there's a theme to the genres I enjoy :) I didn't realize it explains my passion for what I write. So here it goes:
MOVIE: Definitely Fantasy, especially High Fantasy.
There's something special about being able to get lost in a different world, especially one that seems real and makes me want to jump into the television set.
MUSIC: Alternative Pop and Rock
I enjoy lots of 80's and 90's. The Cranberries bring me back to my high school years. I love Depeche Mode, Jon Bon Jovi and Pet Shop Boys, Scorpions, Alphaville. I have a long list of music favorites, but I can't say there's one that's on top of the list.
My ultimate favorite is when Fantasy books include romance and adventure. A world where anything is possible and the littlest people end up as great heroes. They sacrifice, teach, risk and overcome all odds no one else could. Think along the lines of The Lord of the Rings :)
GUILTY PLEASURE: Watching movies you've already seen just because they're on TV. (Even if I own the DVD.) If I'm flipping through the channels and I see Dirty Dancing, Twilight, TLOTR, Back to the Future, Fifth Element, Matrix, Stigmata, Indiana Jones - I cannot switch to a different channel.
Do any of my favorites spark a flame in your heart? Hop along to the other Blogfest participants to find their guilty pleasures. The list can be found here.
