10 Movies That Would’ve Been Better With A Different Genre

Summary SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY SCROLL TO CONTINUE WITH CONTENT A movie’s genre dictates how audiences approach it, based on the conventions and traditions of similar works. Since people can decide which movies to watch based on little more than the genre, studios will create movies in specific genres to meet this demand. The common characteristics of each genre are essential to the way in which people view movies.

9 Bright Should Have Been A Children’s Movie Actual Genre: Urban Fantasy Bright attempted to subvert the tropes of the fantasy genre by showing humans and magical beings living side by side in a crime-riddled American city. The movie uses fantasy staples such as orcs and elves as stand-ins for different demographics in a social commentary about race, but the movie doesn’t develop the world enough for any of it to hit home.

7 Avatar Should Have Been A Historical Drama Actual Genre: Sci-fi James Cameron spent 38 years on Avatar, and he was rewarded with record-breaking box office receipts. Despite its financial success and visual appeal, the plot of Avatar was fairly predictable. Avatar’s story of imperialism could have been ripped straight from the pages of a history book about the British Empire or the depletion of the Amazon rainforest, to name just two examples. headtopics.com

5 The Killing Of A Sacred Deer Should Have Been A Comedy Actual Genre: Psychological Horror After the absurdist comedy The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos and Colin Farrell teamed up again for The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. The psychological horror retained the unsentimental style of The Lobster, but it disposed of the satirical humor.

3 Persuasion Should Have Been A Romantic Comedy Actual Genre: Period Drama Persuasion’s attempts to splice Regency Era style with some 21st-century language were incredibly jarring. The movie looked the part, but it butchered some of Austen’s most beautiful quotes. This doesn’t mean that the movie should have stuck closer to the book. In fact, Persuasion didn’t go far enough. Netflix could have crafted a wonderful romantic comedy if it had brought the story into the modern world. headtopics.com
