Criterion is selling Tee Shirts and asking that very question - for giggles I’ll put that question to the forum, what Tee(s) would buy - or rather, what’s your favorite genre (I’ve allowed up to 3 votes)
I don’t watch that many movies, but I chose Musical, Screwball and Pre-Code. I think most of the movies I like would fit into one of those, with things like the Python movies, the Christopher Guest movies and Network maybe fitting into “Screwball”. There wasn’t a choice for just “Comedy”.
I get the sense this is different from a lot of the people here, who seem to generally be fans of Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror. A good example of this was when I didn’t know who Jeffrey Combs was when Doctor Mordrid premiered and everyone else seemed to be familiar with him.
I looked at my Letterboxd stats, and it says my top 3 most-watched genres are Drama (which covers a lot of ground), Comedy, and Romance.
Western isn’t in my LB top 10, but that’s more about the fact that the western had a relatively narrow window of popularity, with the 50s and 60s being their peak period. Theirs just not enough of them to compete with the top genres
