I sat down to watch Heat (starring Al Pacino, DeNiro, etc) recently and found myself constantly pausing it to do other things. I don't know if I just wasn't in the mood to watch that film but it made me realize that I don't like action films as much as I thought. My favorite genres are drama, comedy, horror, thriller, and all the like. I was shocked at my revelation of not taking to action because that is what America (I don't know about other countries) love. Action films are the most successful and it is what America loves and craves and not to mention they are the highest grossing genre of film. Am I the only one who prefers drama/indie over action films? I prefer to feel something deep within me and connect when I watch a film, and I find myself doing that with drama more so. I'm not hating on action films, I do love a lot of action films, I just prefer the genre of drama. And being a screenwriter, I haven't written an action film and don't plan on it. So, what are your guys' opinions? High grossing Action or Indie Drama? Also, don't get me wrong, I like The Hunger Games, Batman, and Spiderman movies just as the next person...I'm just thinking out loud here.
