Does your favorite movie-watching genre match what you read?
My favorite reading genre is romantic suspense, but I’ve noticed I can’t find a movie that fits this description. One that carries as much romance as suspense. There are plenty of great suspense movies out there, but I find that the romance aspect doesn’t carry its weight. Why is that? Is there even a romantic suspense movie genre? Is it too slow to make a good movie?
I love romantic comedy movies. We caught the last half hour of Hitch on TV this morning. It’s one of those movies I’ll always stop my channel flipping to watch. Same with The Proposal, When Harry Met Sally, and The Holiday. Romantic comedies stress the romance as much as the comedy. Thankfully, my husband enjoys this genre as much as I do. We’re always on the lookout for great romantic comedies. But strangely, I rarely read this genre in fiction. I’ve read a few, but it simply doesn’t click for me.
