Writer's Block: Thumbs down!

What are your least favorite book and movie genres? Are you willing to make exceptions? Do you ever feel left out of social events/discussions owing to atypical taste in movies/books?

This is a difficult question for me to answer, seeing as I'm willing to give just about any genre a shot. I probably shy away from horror the most, but a good plot will still draw my attention. I can't do a straightforward gore fest, though. Especially when it comes to books. My imagination tends to make everything that much worse, and I have been known to have nightmares.
Occasionally I'll feel left out over my book taste. My best friend is much more versed than I when it comes to books, and occasionally she will reference a book I've never read and I'll be too ashamed to admit my lack of knowledge. It's completely stupid, I know. However, during my childhood, I spent most of my time reading Harry Potter and sci-fi/fantasy, so any book by a Russian author tends to go right over my head. (Except for Anna Karenina, but I like to pretend that that novel also perished in front of a train). At this point in my life, I am trying to read a lot of "classics" (Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Shakespeare, African American authors such as Toni Morrison, etc), which a lot of my friends find boring. I don't know. This was quite a rambling post.
