Yep, and public hair in particular is a big no no. Do what you like, but don't you dare show any pubes! As long as filmmakers adhere to that, they pretty much have free reign to make what they want.

I have; in fact, when The Godfather first came out in the 70s, I was young and saw it with my friends like the rest of the series. I have also seen Goodfellas, The Usual Suspects etc and liked none of them. Obviously, the them "glorifying" a bad character had to taken in the right sense. If films come too close in making heroes or martyrs out of these people, the producers might have problems with the censors. In the Godfather series, a lot of the gangsters get what they deserve as you say but they still make an impression on the viewers - which, as in the case of your gangstas - might be the wrong one.

Romantic comedies, biopics ('cept Carpenter's Elvis) and historical epics all bore me stupid.

I can't think of a genre that I don't like, or that doesn't have some towering classic to its name. Even with romantic comedies, there are films that I love: Woody Allen's back catalogue, for example. There are some who'd probably argue that a movie like Manhattan is not a rom com in the same way that Pretty Woman is, but I suggest this demonstrates the flexibility and versatility of the genre...

As has been said, every genre has good and bad, but it's been fun to read opinions.
For me, it's certain subgenres, eg "gorno/torture porn" or whatever is the popular name (though I did think Saw waspretty good). And "stoner comedy". Cheech and Chong, please ******* off.

Sadly, it's a term that is now thrown around by lazy critics, or anyone even remotely offended or grossed out by gory footage; despite the fact it may well be central to a very smart or well made film. But as you say, you enjoy the Saw films, and many would class them as TP, and be correct - seeing the selling point is a series of gruesome and inventive torture devices, the twisty turny plot written around such gory set-pieces. They're entertaining enough fluff though, as you say.

Personally, I blame that hack Eli Roth, and his god-awful Hostel. A term birthed to a movie that in no way deserves it - unless ultra bad prosthetics and frat style comedy are actually supposed to shock us.

Not even 'Hell's Ground'? Pakistan's first ever splatter movie, surely worth a look!

Well, as it's a Pakistani film, then it's not Bollywood.

I actually have that film too - but haven't watched it yet, so couldn't comment on quality.

99.9% of modern comedies, and I passionately despise romcoms/chick flicks

Musicals leave me cold.

Comic book adaptations.

I also don't particularly like Animation Movies of the Shrek kind. I quite like old fashioned classic cartoons and fairy tales like Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Snow White etc, but modern animation does nothing to me. That's not to say I hate them, but I would not spend money on buying DVDs.

Beacuse they're all exectly the same and extrodinary dull and depressing. The only one i have ever liked is "Murder in the first" probably because it was the first one i sat down and saw all the way through, but then watching all the others they're all the same and very depressing.

I love Court room dramas through
