What do you watch the most - low, middle, or highbrow movies

It would be interesting to know our viewing habits. All three levels have something going for them, but all three can also be a complete waste of time. What do you watch the most, what fulfills your expectations the most. What are your expectations going in?

lowbrow - trash, cult, exploitation - a celebrated kind of filmmaking sustained by "ironic viewing"
middlebrow - your typical, well-meaning Academy Award winner
highbrow - deep, slow, ponderous, arthouse, often foreign, even more often Bergmanesque
