Sooner or later, that special indoor weekend arrives. Nothing sounds better than the couch, some snacks, and some movie watching. It's a 90s weekend.

What's your favorite movie?

That is a very difficult question to answer, at least it is for me. I have favorite movies for different moods. Asking someone this question would certainly be a good way to start a conversation about movies, but you'll never get a real answer.

What's your favorite type of movie?

My answer to that question,

"My favorite type of movie is a 'good' movie."

After I'm done being a smart-ass, I have another list almost too long to write. The shorter list for many people is the list of 'types of movies you DON'T like'.
