Top 10 Worst Movie Genres

The Top Ten Worst Movie Genres

1 Romance

Actually, even if it's not as interesting as it could be, romance adds a twist to the tale. It could be a basic happily ever after which isn't so good, it could be the girl chooses the wrong guy or vice versa, and the other guy swoops in, or an argument could tear the whole thing apart until everything is fixed. Isn't the romance what makes things interesting? Isn't it what people root for? If movies didn't have romance, there wouldn't be as much humor, as much thrill, as much drama, as much fear. Romance is apart of everything, even in the slightest way. No matter what, it will always be important.

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.

Not because it involves sex/love but rather because it's boring and predictable - DarkBoi-X

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

2 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?

What the hell is this doing out of the top 1?!

3 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

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

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

If its not Disney and it has singing it sucks

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

Once you've seen 3 of them, you've seen them all...

5 Comedy

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

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

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

Same story, different cover is what most comedies nowadays come out as

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

This is my all time favourite genre. Please remove it

I am the creator of this list and I put horror action and adventure on last because those are my favourites.

7 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

Their jokes aren't funny.

Immature genre. - AlphaQ

8 Superhero

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.

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!

Superhero is just an overrated genre but some classic movies like Superman and The Dark Knight is really astonishing and fantastic. But nowadays, some of them are just cringey to "save the day" but I'm not really a fan of comic books though. And plus, a so-called Teen Titans GO! Movie will be now in theatres so stay away.

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.

9 Teen Drama
10 Film Noir

Best Genre Ever, not for Kiddies.

They use the "dark side" of humanity.

The Contenders

11 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.

Good Lord, how is this even considered a good thing?!

12 Snuff Film

Why would I want to watch a movie where someone actually is murdered? IS THIS EVEN LEAGAL!?

IN a snuff film they actually kill the actors on screen!
Worst type of movie ever
But there has never been a snuff film released in theatres and we should be really lucky about that

Seriously, how is this not #1?

How is this not #1?

13 Horror

Cheap jumpscares, never any good horror build up and anything scary is wasted on simple premises. Worst genre, as it never has a good story or theme.

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

14 Children's

I really don't like children's movies. They're just so plastic and boring!

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

There is no such thing as a kids movie. Animation is for Everyone, And it is awesome - GreenDayFan21

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

15 Video Game Movies

I could hardly get through donkey kong and the crystal coconut.

How did I have to add this! Video Game Movies SUCK!

These SUCK. The only one that was semi-decent was fudging WRECK-IT-RALPH. - Michaela4444

16 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

17 Adult
18 Cannibal
19 Christian

Christian movies are boring.

20 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.

21 Western

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

Cowboys suck

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

22 Chick Flick
23 Fairy Tale
24 Natural Disaster

These movies a pointless, natural disasters in real life are very rare and only last a few minutes, so why make a hour long movie about them? Because of this they devote the entire movie on the characters and the disaster only shows up in the last 5 minutes of the movie, who would ever find that entertaining? Just keep natural disasters on T.V. , it's the right length of time and it's the main focus, natural disaster movies are just boring build up movies with short climaxes

Sharknado, 'enough said. - starryrcad

25 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

26 Summer Camp Movies

Stop it, just stop with the summer camp bullcrap. It's either a kid who does something wrong in school or the parents want to get him to do something. There is always a sentinel or drill sergeant yelling at the protagonist like he's the only male to have a menstrual period, and a nerdy kid, one of them are put in a movie!

What if you combined this with a horror movie?

27 Religious
28 Anime
29 Parody

This is easily the worst genre

30 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

31 Melodrama
32 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

33 Adventure

It's very usual for adventure movies to repeat themselves and the ending is always so predictable.

34 Concert
35 Slasher

These things are nasty and repulsive! I can't stand them.

Some slasher films are ok - ElSherlock

36 Fantasy

Here's the thing, these movies always go 1 of 2 ways, they're either REALLY good or they REALLY suck, and in recent years every fantasy movie that's not lord of the rings or the hobbit has sucked really hard

How ironic that one of the best genres of film is at the bottom of the list for worst genres.

All fantasy movies suck, no matter which decade. Also "Lord of the Rings". It is middle age, very uncool, and not beautiful to watch. - Strobo

Original gantasy movies - not so much. Movies based on fantasy books - GREAT! - 445956

37 Documentary

These are so boring. - Limeyy

38 Spoof

You have not heard of Mel brooks then
