The Movie Genres Recipe [Infographic]

Here are some popular movie genres, visually boiled down to their basic components. I especially love the last element of the Alien Invasion Movie Recipe!

It’s interesting to see how many of my favorite films follow these recipes to a tee; I guess it just goes to show that formulas for success exist for a reason.

Does your favorite movie fall under one of these genres? Does it fit the bill?

  1. haha. Those are cute. I don’t think any of my Top 10 movies follow any of those formulas though. But that’s because I usually like unconventional movies with twists: where the guy and girl don’t get together or the enemy is not the enemy you thought. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I also LOLed at the Alien one. So true, I think you could even simplify Hollywood further with the plot formulas. Learned about it in film studies at Hopkins.

  3. Super adorable depictions. That egg… haha!
