I love a good comedy, also. My life is so caught up in the responsibilities and all the mundane things that I really need a good laugh, when I get a rare moment to watch a movie. I saw Liar Liar on tv with Jim Carrey, and though some of it was crass, I was laughing so hard. It is still funny every time I see it. I think that's a good test of a comedy, is if you still laugh when you see it again. Mrs. Doubtfire, What About Bob, Parenthood, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Housesitter are among my favorites. I also really like Never Been Kissed.
According to an online report by the American Heart Association, laughter may have an influence on artery and heart disease. As further noted by Cinematherapy.com, an online website dedicated to promoting growth and healing through cinema, laughter not only promotes a healthy heart, it also strengthens the immune system and decreases stress hormones.
While I prefer documentaries above all, I do like to intersperse them with comedies for some perspective. I don't often watch dramas on television, but my favorite TV shows are Monk and the DeadZone, both independant shows on the USA network. I really like Monk because I too have OCD, althoug medication does help quite a bit so I don't have it nearly to the extent he does, thank goodness. My favorite TV series of all time though is 'Who's line is it Anyway' simply because even when I watch a rerun of it I cannot help but laugh, and laughter is a very precious thing to me. And my 'guiilty pleasure' is Survivor, although I only started watching it when the had the season with Rupert in it, and I really love that guy! But now I am hooked on the show, lol! Can't stand other reality shows, though, particularly 'fear factor', simply because the eating part of the contests always grosses me out...if I want to see someone trying not to gag, and sometimes not always being successful, I would have continued doing what I did in the Army in civilian life and opted out of that one, thank you very much. Here is a breakdown of what are my personal favorite sitcoms of all time:
Who's line is it anyway?
I like a lot of others too, like Everybody Loves Raymond, Mork and Mindy, All in the Family, and Happy Days, but those are my personal favorites.
We also love that show, Who's Line is it Anyway! It is so hilarious and we laugh so hard it feels like we're going to bust a gut! lol It is usually very clean, though the humor is geared more for adults in my opinion, and I would recommend it to just about anyone.
I voted for Action and Adventure because I am a huge fan of Vin Disel and I love all of the stunts and special effects.
I picked comedy, I do enjoy a good laugh. I am also a big fan of mysteries, thrillers and sci-fi. I have also been know to enjoy a horror flic every now and then.
My Style is Anime and animation. Most people think Anime is childish but in truth it varies from in intellect from Child to adult, the biggest market being for young adults. It also covers all the above topics such as comedy, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, or even Action and Adventure.
I chose Scifi and Fantasy - wish I could have chosen at least three but I believe I chose correctly.
The original Star Wars trilogy is my ultimate favourite and I recently saw the trailer for Episode III Revenge of the Sith and got really excited. Anakin Skywalker really is my favourite character in the entire Star Wars Series with Han Solo coming in a close second.
Other than that give me part two of any trilogy The Road warrior, terminator II, Aliens - I loved the Alien Series as well and was one of the few in my group that actually enjoyed Alien V Predator.
My ultimate favourite movie is Silence of the lambs though and it's really wierd that Pretty Woman comes next followed by Shawshank Redemption HAH - ok I'm just wierd
I'd have to say that I'm an oddball, I would fit more into the action/sci-fi category that I just made up. haha. I like action and sci-fi equally, and always find myself flipping between channels. My favorites include Star Wars (all of them), Lord of the Rings, and Die Hard.
