Action? Drama? Romance? Comedy? Which movie genre do you think is the best of all time? My personal favourite movie genre of all time is action; sure there have been alot of ones that have failed but if you get an action film right then it will even out to a great flick overall. A great action film in my mind has to do with: fun, excitement, suspense, character development, and that's pretty much all you need to have to make a great action flick, flow that formula and you get a great one(add in new and creative ideas to the development and it would be even better).
