If Your Life Was a Movie, What Genre Would It Be?

woman who likes noir

Do you ever feel like your life is a movie? I sometimes do… both during my life’s best and worst moments. Sometimes thinking of my life as a movie can be a good coping mechanism… there are definitely dark comedic elements that come up from time to time. If someone or something really annoys me, I try to think “Oh yeah, saving this for my indie movie!”

I thought today would be a good day to revisit the subject of movies with the Golden Globe Awards happening. This is one of my favorite awards shows ever, probably only second to the Oscars. I love that the Golden Globes span both movies and television. Plus, I love that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting again. I think they’re hilarious!

While my life can be almost any genre of movie depending on what day it is, although hopefully it’s never a horror movie!  If I had to pick, I’d say that my life is usually like an indie comedy if things are going well. If things aren’t going well, maybe it’s more like one of those very dialog driven dramas. My ideal life / movie would be written and directed by Whit Stillman.

What about you? What sort of movie is your life like? Take If Your Life Was a Movie, What Genre Would It Be? to find out. Let me know what your result is and how accurately it describes your life!

    The Movie Of Your Life Is A Cult Classic (Black Comedy and Film Noir kinda fit me too)

    Indie (not quite the same as in this quiz), Woody Allen, Coen Brothers, or Stanley Kubrick (all if possible).

    Yes, I am a black comedy! Sometimes, I have dark thoughts and I love expressing them on paper! I love watching horror movies and black comedies, especially on October. I feel like there are just so many evil things in life that it’s hard to find the good things! I have a lot of tough days sometimes! 🙁
