And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!

This is kind of like asking me to pick a single star in the sky, but if I had to choose one it would be...
 Fantasy.

    1. I command you to see it now! I love it - hubby makes fun of me for that, but it's a young Val Kilmer. Nothing to hate about that!

  7. Damn right 80's music! I'm thinking I need to play some Poison and REO and David Lee Roth and Night Ranger and Styx and Twisted Sister and Bon Jovi...basically the entire Rock of Ages (the musical) soundtrack, but using the originals.

  10. Willow is great! I love all your choices. I'd only add the 70's to your classic rock category:)

    1. Oh, I considered 70's part of the Classic Rock title. But yes, it's great!

  16. OMGosh, Willow! One of my favorite fantasy movies ever.

    And high five on the romance. I'm a junkie, too.

    1. I know, it's pretty dang good! Hubby hates it though, so it's something I have to watch in private. :(

      High five!

  17. It's hard to choose just one genre. I have a soft spot for fantasy movies. My mom took me to see a ton of them when I was little.

    Can't get enough of paranormal romance and urban fantasy books :).

    1. I remember Willow from when I was a kid and many other fantasy movies, like Labyrinth that I still love. Good times!

  18. Willow rocks! And you have brilliant taste. :) My guilty pleasure fantasy is Krull. I adore that film.

    Replies
    1. LOL, thanks! Yes, Willow does rock! Loved Krull, too!

      Delete
  19. Willow! I have seen it, or part of it, 30 times. lol Crazy rather unknown movie, don't you think?

    Not into the romance stuff, but it surely proliferates so I know there is a great market for it.

    Finally, love me some rock! I like it from the 50's to present, but prefer the 70's to early 90's. Dig the 80's hair bands. lol

    1. It's one of those unknown movies that everyone I know my age has seen, but if I mention it to anyone under that age, they tend to look at me like I'm crazy. LOL.

      My friend just named her baby Alora after the baby, too. Gotta love that. :D

      Yes, any kind of rock works for me. I've gone to a couple concerts lately of 70's and 80's bands that I had a blast at.

  20. The 80s and 90s had some good rock. Of course I was growing up during that time, so a lot of it is tied to fun memories.

    1. Yeah, me too. I associate so many songs with little moments in my life. Every time I hear them, I'm like, "Oh wow, I just remembered that time when I..." Good stuff.

  21. Great rock in the 80s and 90s!
    I haven't seen that movie...I will have to rent it.
    I am a Val Kilmer fan... :D

    1. Ooh, it's a good one. He's a fun character to watch in that one. And yay for the rock! :D

  22. I agree with you on the 80s music. Last year I went out dancing with some friends, it was 80s night and we had a BLAST. Good times. And WILLOW! Makes me want to see that movie after all these years. (:

    1. Nights like that are always fun. I'm actually thinking of dressing 80's style for Halloween. :D

    1. LOL, yes, a great line! I still, to this day when I'm carrying my little ones around, like to say "I've got the babeeeeeeey!"
