Nothing better than some awesome Sci-fi and Horror...

I have never really been that interested but I am not saying it is bad. Some sci-fi movies are ok. - birdechosplash

I really think action movies are good but they're going overboard with the amount.

Horror or thriller movies should be on the top of the list all actions are too predictable and they all look same

A really good action movie is Lone Survivor!

#1 should be action

Unlike the rest of the genres... Comedy is suitable for anyone and is lovelable in anyway possible! GO comedy!

Classic comedy is the best! You got the Monty Python films, a Fish Called Wanda, Airplane!, Dr. Strangelove, Chaplin, and so much more! - MontyPython

comedy, horror, adventure, sci-fi THE BEST! - nikola94

I love comedy. I like ones that are really silly. - birdechosplash

This the only genre that makes me feel like I'm actually living through the emotions and horror of the movie with the characters. The intense suspense is always what makes the genre so deeply emotional and crazy, but it takes a true masterpiece or a classic, I guess, so its actually true ( like my all time favourite: Halloween, or even the exorcist, the shining, the Texas chainsaw massacre, the ring, friday the13th, the grudge, aliens, the strangers, etc... )

I'm not saying this genre should be #1, but I still love this genre. My favorite horror movies are ones that are based on Stephen King books like The Shining, Cujo, Christine, IT, Maximum Overdrive, The Stand, Misery, The Mist, or Pet Sematary.

Horror should be number 1. My favorite movie is a horror movie. I know they may be predictable but it is 1 of the only genres that keep you interested the entire time. - birdechosplash

Horror is the best and including the sub genres slasher, cannibal are the best genres

Dramatic films bring so many amazing classics. The Godfather, The Sixth Sense, Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, Citizen Kane, It's a Wonderful Life, all of them are just so outstanding. - MontyPython

So many drama movies are considered the best of all time The Godfather, On the waterfront, Casablanca, one flew over the cuckoos nest, and gone with the wind

this one mixed up with adventure, action and romance can be the perfect combination - MatrixGuy

Nobody wants to watch a movie about a princess and a prince defeating the evil queen and they live happily ever after plus they're misleading to small children and they will think that stuff is real when it isn't

Nobody wants to watch movies about little fairies in little dresses and unicorns flying over a rainbow with a leprechaun under it with a pot of gold.

Wait you said Sifi is boring!? No fantasy is the boring one with just flying unicorns but for the other ones I admit, they're pretty bad genres

Pirates Of The Carribean, Journey To The Center Of The Earth, Indiana Jones, there is so many great movies...

Movies like this are very interesting. Not my favourite, though. - birdechosplash


Much more clever and unique genre than horror -


This deserves a higher position... I really like Mystery... I am happy solving it.. And.. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is my favorite!

Best genre of movie.those who can't understand movies they like action movies.They just like to see stupid,boring slow motion,jason statham movies.
This deserves top on this list than action


The best movie genre... most realistic... this genre deserves a far better place.. some of the best war movies include saving pvt. ryan, black hawk down, 300, apocalypse now etc..

It just spreads the joy over me, all the classics like Oliver Twist, that's nice, The lion king is awesome!


I love anime. The type of animation is cute and cool at the same time.

If you can look past the horrible Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg spoof movies, This genre is very funny.
