Though sometimes it seems a bit hard to categorize certain films into genres, there are many out there which easily fit into the confines of a certain formula. Buddy cop comedies, sports movies, romantic comedies and other subgenre flicks often times are formulaic, and it's pretty easy to figure out what's going to happen. The New York International Latino Film Festival points out this fact with some recipes for familiar blockbuster movies along with the smart, but somewhat pretentious tagline: "Some movies are easy to make. Films are a different story." But being a bit trite doesn't make it untrue. Check ’em out below!
Here's an animated recipe for the perfect alien invasion movie from NYILFF (via MTV):
And here's more infographics with the recipes for some other familiar films as well from Jest:
You can also make your own action movie recipe on the NYILFF website here if you'd like. Amusing?
Pretty accurate, lol.

Maybe I haven't seen enough Westerns, but not one I've seen was like that. The other ones pretty much spot on. Especially the buddy cop comedy and the slasher.

The western one seems off... can't remember seeing one fitting that formula.
