Top 10 Worst Movie Genres

The Top Ten

1 Romance

These movies make me want to barf in my mouth. All they do is do sappy things to gain each others affection even though they already love the other.

Boring, predictable, and just unrealistic. It's all " Everyone knows there gonna be in love after their breakup" it's mess that even He-man hates! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Love and forgiveness is for the weak minded I like horror films especially slasher movies with a lot of blood and flesh torn apart

They met, fell in love, broke up, got back together.

All romance movies described by ten words.

2 Musical

Musicals are pointless and they waste time. Why can't a character just talk without bursting into a ridiculous song and dance number? Avoid these like cancer and AIDS. Then the world will be a much better place. - ArpstaAmy333

Why do people just put some talking and a bunch of songs put together and call them movies? - venomouskillingmachine

I love musicals but I'll admit...they're not for everyone.

The only good musicals are Greece Andy Hairspray

3 Porn

Do I really need to say much?

This all depends on your personal views and beliefs. My belief is that sexual relations outside of marriage is sinful and that said, porn is showing the audience that act. Now, I have never seen porn (outside of a disgusting video called 2 girls 1 cup), but I'' sure there are porn movies that have compelling stories, great acting, good screenplay, etc. I wouldn't know, but this is just my reason for disliking porn. It's not the quality, it's the act it is showing.

How on earth is this not number 1?

Porn is irrelevant and stupid

4 Sports

Why the hell is the sports genre not at #1? Yes, every movie genre has its highlights, but at least most of the genres mentioned on this list have variety. Almost every sports movie is exactly the same formula rehashed over and over and over again, especially football movies. Absolute worst movie genre I have ever heard of in my life. - ScampVsSimba

Yeah the plot is lame and predictable. You know the underdog game is gonna win at the end so why bother watching? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

It's so boring! I hate watching sport, I hate playing sport and I know I'm a hateful person but come on. This is the worst genre. - Catlover2004

Also no I don't like this shjtty genre. - AlphaQ

5 Comedy

I love a good comedy but the problem is, there aren't any. What is classed as "humour" today is awful.

Some movies that are supposed to be funny, actually aren't

Comedy is alright. There's some funny moves but what people consider humor now are farts and overly sexual content. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Good genre. Much better than War. - AlphaQ

6 Action

Action? Advneture? Horror? Comedy? Having all these on the list obviously means that you hate all movies, because those are some of the most popular movie genres ever.

Why would you hate this awesome genre? It's super thrilling no not cheesy at all, the stints are also really cool and yes this is the best genre. - AlphaQ

Why is this so high on the list? - 906389

The punch body sound=a thudding phonebook

7 Adult
8 Horror

Musical, I would have to agree on. But really? Don't we all need to see something to scare us out of our minds once and a while?! I live for horror movies. I just finished watching N
Nightmare On Elm Street (part 3), Dream Warriors

About 5 minutes ago!

I honestly think some horror movies have really good morals. Where it tells you to not do bad things or bad things will happen to you.

Romance and porn I would agree are the worst genres ever but I love horror movies

Horror sucks you dumbholes! - Neinwott

9 Drama

I really don't see any good reason to seek out depictions of sensational moments for entertainment when you could experience them yourself first-hand

They think they are realistic, when they tend not to be.

Idiotic Trash. - AlphaQ

Godfather? Shawshank Redemption? Citizen Kane? Gone With the Wind? Casablaca? How is this above Rape and Revenge? - 445956

10 Superhero

When Hollywood having a lack of ideas they makes superheroes movies. Especially in those last 2 years (Spiderman 4, Green Lantern, Batman 4, The Avengers, Iron Man 2... ) SO Overrated!

The Genre is not that bad! Watch The Dark Knight, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Logan, Spider-man 2, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Iron Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

These days it seems that Superhero movies are the only thing the movie studios are willing to make, because they're money makers. All they do is have the actors put on Halloween costumes and wait for the fanboys to line up like the sheep they are, and then rake in the cash.

Normal, evil attacks, cause grief, hero fixed these evils, end

The Contenders

11 Film Noir

Best Genre Ever, not for Kiddies.

They use the "dark side" of humanity.

12 Western

I wish to see more western movies in recent years. WE NEED MORE OF THESE MOVIES!

The same film over & over again, all filmed in Monument Valley. Tedious.

13 Family

What passes for "Family" today would have pushed June Cleaver past the grave and straight to the crematorium! I can hardly watch one without covering my kids ears and eyes.

14 War

Whoever added this to the list has obviously never seen Saving Private Ryan. That film is a masterpiece.

How is this so low? - AlphaQ

15 Rape and Revenge

They usually romanticize them. Rape is a terrible thing, stop making excuses, Film Directors!

How do they make it romantic? Last house on the left was pretty disturbing but good.

16 Romantic Comedies

Romantic comedies are not really comedies. They are fantasy dates. They are meant to be cute, not funny. They are more childish and escapist than anything from the so called fantasy genre.

Total and utter garbage

Immature genre. - AlphaQ


17 Teen Drama
18 Crime

*Enhances image so that it could act as a close-up of what is too small on the image to even have an idea of*

Boring and WAYYY too Complicated. - AlphaQ

19 Sci-Fi

I like sci-fi because it's the art of the possible. Not the impossible. It could give us new ideas to open up a better future.

Star Wars enough said! Take this off

Favorite syfy movie van hosing

20 Children's

Not all the stuff in the world is made for kids (example is watership down).

Children's movies are really boring, not to mention that I hate them.

Some of them are awesome, though...
