Am I in the minority?

The Star Wars post got me thinking, about movies. Dh and I like many of the same movies. But many movies I've seen with him, I wouldn't have watched if it wasn't for him. (make sense?)..and I think it's the same for him with me. 

I like a wide variety of movies..comedy(obviously..lol)..but I also LOVED Star Wars, Star Trek, and suspenseful movies..not bloody/horror..suspense, like Sixth Sense and The Others.

Then there are the movies where things blow up..many of them (not all) I reallllly like!!

Die Hard, Terminator movies, Rambo, Indiana Jones (I actually have the box set)...I know there are more because when dh flips by them I'm like "NO GO BACK!!" LOL

Not many women like movies where things blow up.

What kind of movies do you like? 

Are you and dh completely different or just a little bit?

Do you like movies where they blow up stuff?

We watch some of the same things, but we also have different tastes completely. 

We both love 80s movies- The Princess Bride, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Spaceballs, and of course the 80s action flicks like Die Hard...

I love musicals- he hates them. 

I love Harry Potter- he tolerates them.

I love The Lord of the Rings Triology and The Hobbit- he likes them, but not as much as I do... 

The Expendables and The Expendables 2... the 2nd one is my fave and I can't wait for the 3rd one to come out in August. He actually recorded the 2nd one on the DVR for me recently. :-) 

I love comedies and action... I will not watch suspense or horror as I'm a chicken. He watches tons of movies though.

We like a lot of the same things and some different things.

I'm a big fan of action movies.

I loved those movies, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club! 

My older son took a sociology class in high school and he watched The Breakfast Club, I thought that was kind of cool. 

I also, LOVE Erin Brockovitch.

I love a wide variety of movies. I like superhero, action, fantasy, sci-fi, romance and I'll really watch just about anything. We both like a lot of the same movies.

I'm not big on action films.  I did like terminator (2) and indiana jones and the temple of doom only.  I like super natural horror movies the best.

I have to be in the mood to watch a comedy or action. I like thrillers, some dramas. Hate romance, but the funny thing is I LOVE the twilight saga. Horror is my favorite.
