2 Horror

They're fun but not scary lol - codgtamk34

Horror is the best, because it is the only gene that can have everything else in it like comedy, drama, action, and romance. Go for HORROR!


Because horror may be a true story and it gives u some little tiny nightmares
That is why I love horror.

Action movies are the best! - Peppapigsucks

My Favorite Movie Genre ever. - Soulstealer

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

5 Drama

Drama plus a little bit of adventure and action and some sci-fi reminds me of The Walking Dead. It isn't a movie but just pointing it out - tequila

Every truly well told story with high amounts of character development and an intricate plot has to be a drama

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

6 Thriller

The least shallow genre of movie

Morons. This should be NO1.

SPLIT with James mcavoy

Psychological thrillers only. Not all thrillers are as awesome as this sub-genre. I with they would make more movies of this genre.

7 Fantasy

Good book and video game genre, doesn't work so well with movies (with some exceptions like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter) - yungstirjoey666

Fantasy is so amazing.

Can be very good- it's a shame Disney hijacked it.

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

Have you ever even seen a fantasy movie? Films like Harry Potter, Maleficent, Pirates of the Caribbean and Avatar are all fantasy. - KilljoyWithAPen

8 Adventure

9 War

Full Metal Jacket - codgtamk34

Yeah, your stoopid barbarian. - MChkflaguard_Yt

10 Mystery

Fair play mysteries. Rational plot twists that sci-fi lack. No metaphysical bs.,no bombs and explosions, just clever plotting and the possibility to catch the murderer before the detective does. By far the best genre ever.

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!

Scooby Dooby Doo! Where Are You? - PeeledBanana

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 Contenders

11 Western

No other movie genre captures American cultural history like the Western

Westerns give me escapism.
Some have good ethical stories, many have good landscape scenes.
'Dances with Wolves', 'Tombstome', 'Unforgiven', the new 'True Grit', most John Wayne movies.

I Like All Movies

I Like All Movies & T.V. Shows

12 Musical

I love watching a great musical and leaving the theater happy and a great mood. - Sa26

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

How can you hate musicals? Fiddler On The Roof is one of the best movies ever made.

Disney - PeeledBanana

13 Psychological Thriller Psychological Thriller

These are the films that stick in your head long after you watch them

14 Crime

Depends on the movie - codgtamk34

All the good films are crime films

The Dark Knight - PeeledBanana

15 Documentary
16 Anime

I saw "Your name". #FavMovie

Anime is the best thing I ever seen, The Story,Characters,Animation in every anime is the best.

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

Best for Otakus.. =))

17 Suspense
18 Superhero

I like superhero movies, fight me haters! - codgtamk34

Avengers endgame

A few years ago I hated the genre and only watched the essentials which were highly praised by the critics but I latter got so much into and realized they are really fu to watch with some of the best characters. - Sa26

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.

19 Family

Pixar films. - codgtamk34

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.

20 History
21 Erotic

Remove this off this list! Porn is disgusting and must be banned!

This is the best movie ganre ever! I like ''fisting'' porn!

22 Dark Comedy
23 Cop
24 Spoof

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

25 Coming of Age

My favorite movie "Stand By Me (1986)" is in this category, but I still have to vote for Horror. - GaretTheCarrot

26 Romance

Please tell me you're joking.

Romance sucks.

27 Holiday

Is a great way to feel happy and loved

28 Film Noir

One of the coolest genres to ever grace the screen. When it's done well it's smooth, suspenseful, profane, dark, elegant, violent, and sexy. It's not as popular now, and completely deserves to make a comeback.

29 Gangster

Must be on top 5! Grate genre - Nickmetal

30 Science Fantasy
31 Gothic
32 Character-Study
33 Spy
34 Biography
35 Shorts

There just good but not the best. - Dang

36 Spaghetti Western
37 Dark Fantasy
38 Tech Noir
39 Space Opera
40 Cyberpunk
41 Epic
42 Chick Flick
43 Neo-noir

Come on Sincity! Blade Runner! Kiss Kiss Bang Bang! They're classics. Neo Noir is slick, cool and stylish

44 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.

45 Tragedy

Think about it... the Titanic is about the most popular film I know, everybody knows it. The Titanic is tragedy, so how can it be ranked so low?
