Top 10 Best Movie Genres

The Top Ten
1 Horror

I LOVE horror I love how much I get scared and it's just interesting to watch. My favorite horror movie is Evil Dead Rise, if you haven't watched it 100% would recommend.

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 the 13th, The Grudge, Aliens, The Strangers, etc...)

Horror has been on a really creative upswing since 2000, especially the last 10 years. A huge improvement over the 90's which seemed mired in mediocrity, at best. Films like the Conjuring, Get Out, It Follows, Drag Me To Hell and the Babadook have breathed life back into the industry.

2 Sci-fi

I love science fiction, well basically anything! 2001: A Space Odyssey, ET, The Star Wars trilogy, it's all so great! I also love sci-fi cartoons like Rick & Morty, Invader Zim, Futurama, the 2005 Ben 10 series, Darkwing Duck, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Jimmy Neutron, Samurai Jack (look it up it is) and Ready Jet GO.

Science fiction is practically just my thing. A lot of things I like (dr who, Star Wars, avengers and a bunch of other stuff) really takes things from science fiction. Then again I am a pretty big nerd.

Sci-Fi! My 2nd favorite film genre. Some of my favorite sci-fi films are Inception, Interstellar, I Am Legend and many more. I like scifi because they are interesting and my ambition is scientist.

3 Action

I love to see a good action movie. My favorite action films were made in the 80's and 90's. Nowadays they don't make movies like that. They always mix action with fantasy, adventure or sci-fi.
Bring classic Action movies back please!

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

I think almost all movies in this world are action movies. Eventhought they are so many action movies, we will never ever get bored

4 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.

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

My favourite genre is obviously horror movies, but some dramas are great too.

5 Comedy

My absolute favourite genre. I love a good comedy movie whenever. It keeps me entertained, it keeps me laughing, it keeps me smiling. Laughing is just so enjoyable, and sometimes it feels special when it's really funny.

Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Emperor's Ne Groove, Pinocchio 1940 and 2022, Cars, Despicable Me, Minions the list goes on. That's why Comedy's my favorite movie genre, It's funny.

Today's comedy is mostly horrible. The days of SNL stars carrying the industry have been over for nearly two decades. People like Will Smith and Jim Carey have opted for more serious roles. The content now is filthy talk and sex based. I haven't watched a comedy at the movie theatre in over a decade. If somebody has any ideas to save the genre, please do it.

6 Thriller

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

Psychological thriller to be precise. An imaginative and intelligent and deeper form of horror.

Nobody voted it because it's obviously just the same as Murder But crime

7 Fantasy

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

Probably the most underrated and under-appreciated film genre.

8 Adventure

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

This is one of my favorite movie genres. I really recommend watching the Indiana Jones franchise!

9 War

War, history, crime, Biography are movie genres. But these are represented as with different genres.

For example -
Act of Valor - Action/thriller
Black Hawk Down - Drama/ Action
Saving Private Ryan - Drama
Letters from Iwo Jima - Drama

These genre alone can't be a movie's genre.

Yeah, your stoopid barbarian.

10 Psychological Thriller

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

The Contenders
11 Mystery

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!

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.

12 Anime

Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo, Grave of the Fireflies, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, The End of Evangelion, there are many classic anime movies.

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

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

13 Documentary

Very important to watch. I prefer war documentaries and technology documentaries.

14 Crime
15 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.

Although this technically may not be a classic genre, so many movies have taken this up that it is one in itself. And I'm sure many would agree. From Blade to The Dark Night, Spiderman to the Avenger, it should be its own category

This genre should at least be top 10... Avengers anyone?

16 Musical

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.

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

17 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.

Sadly, westerns are really becoming a thing of the past with the rise of technology and such, but theres something just so authentic and down to earth a lot of the old ones are

No other movie genre captures American cultural history like the Western

18 Suspense
19 Coming of Age

Spirited Away is a great example of a coming of age movie. One of my favorite animated movies of all time & this fits perfect with this genre.

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

20 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.

21 Romance

Romance often plays into a good story, romance is not the same as romantic comedies. Movies like Memoirs of a Geisha are really period romances.

Please tell me you're joking.

22 History

Especially foreign history films teach you a lot about different cultures. I would suggest any about pre industrial times in the continent of asia.

23 Erotic

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

24 Dark Comedy
25 Biography
