I realized today that nearly all of the movies in my media software can be grouped into one of a very few buckets. (This gives me cause to wonder whether I may not be as amazingly interesting as I had previously thought.) Here are a few:

Zombie Movies – Because I like movies about the undead.

  • 28 Days Later
  • 28 Weeks Later
  • Army of Darkness
  • Dawn of the Dead
  • Dead Snow
  • The Gates Of Hell
  • Jennifer’s Body
  • King of the Zombies
  • Night of the Living Dead
  • Planet Terror
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Zombieland

Noir – My definition of film noir is a little on the loose side.

  • Blade Runner
  • Blood Simple
  • Chinatown
  • City Confidential
  • Detour
  • The Killing
  • L.A. Confidential
  • The Long Goodbye
  • Miller’s Crossing
  • Pi
  • Red Rock West
  • The Third Man
  • To Live and Die in L.A.

Pet Directors – These are movies made (more or less) by some of my favorite directors.

  • 12 Monkeys
  • 2001 A Space Odyssey
  • A Serious Man
  • Beetlejuice
  • Blood Simple
  • Coraline
  • Death Proof
  • Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

  • Kill Bill Vol. 2
  • Lolita
  • Machete
  • Miller’s Crossing
  • Once Upon a Time in Mexico
  • Paths of Glory
  • Pee-wee’s Big Adventure
  • Planet Terror
  • Shining
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • The Big Lebowski
  • The Killing
  • Vincent

Kung Fu – And similar. Some of these aren’t really kung fu movies, but are listed here because they involve a lot of graceful ass kicking.

  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
  • Hero
  • House of Flying Daggers
  • Kagemusha
  • Kung Fu Hustle
  • The Matrix
  • The Matrix Reloaded
  • The Matrix Revolutions
  • My Young Auntie
  • The One-Armed Swordsman
  • Red Cliff
  • Red Cliff II

I had other categories, but I’m tied of this blog post now and it’s hard to imagine that anyone else would not be.
