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

I HATE romance movies. They make me sick. - 906389

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

If its not Disney and it has singing it sucks

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

How the heck do all the characters know the words and dance to a song that other peoplejust made up on the spot?

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?

A genre that serves only for sex purposes.Not that sex is bad/sinful or stuff like that, but simply is one-dimensional, just not art.

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.

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

Every Comedy Movie Nowadays

2 hours of swearing, having sex, and cringy sex jokes

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 is this so high on the list? - 906389

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

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

Too much Ketchup

9 Film Noir

Best Genre Ever, not for Kiddies.

They use the "dark side" of humanity.

10 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.

The Contenders

11 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!

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.

To much superhero movies

To much

12 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.

13 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.

14 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.

15 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


16 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

17 War

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

18 Children's

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

Some of them are awesome, though...

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