Lunchtime Poll: Surprise Favorite Movie Genre

Summer always brings some great movies and a lot of them are big blow up your face type action movies. I am not always an action girl but there is a particular type of action film people are surprised I love. I love Tokusatsu films, specifically the subgenres of Kaiju and giant robots.
