The Contenders: Page 2

21 Cop
22 Film Noir
23 Family

Why would this be considered the best movie genre? Because it is for all ages. Anyone can love it. Examples would be E. T, The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, Mary Poppins, Shrek, and, the king of the Family genre, Pixar. This is a great genre.

24 Erotic
25 Character-Study
26 Superhero

This genre is awesome defined. You take ordinary people or aliens and grant them powers. People have to choose between good and evil. Good superheroes show what it takes to be heroic. Even if you have no powers like Hawkeye, you can still make a difference to the planet. It shows that good can triumph over evil since good gives hope, while bad gives doom. So this genre should be in the top 10.

40 Sports

Ok, so technically it's not an official movie genre. But still, millions of sports fans all over the world would love to see more of these. A cross between action and modern life, they show the stories, struggles, and shining moments of all great sports pros. Sports movies open up a wide variety of categories: tennis, baseball, basketball, football, hockey (MIRACLE), boxing/wrestling (ROCKY, REAL STEEL, THE CHAMP, ETC. ), and all others. So next time you have a choice between sports and cheesy, boring musicals, choose sports: not just for you, but for all humanity.
