This study has a by-example approach to classify movies in two dimensions.



We can observe several facts about story lines from this graph.

It is obvious that most (or all) of science Fiction movies are future oriented.

I have added a threshold line of Surrealism (a genre of art) where reality and fantasy cross. We can find Psycho Thrillers along this line, from present to past.

Most of Fantasy are past oriented.

The drama is naturally very close to reality, along with comedy, which are around past events.

It is very special thing to note, that for a comedy to be popular, it has to relate to present.

Action movies are also close to present, with an exception of movies like Sherlock Holmes. Some action movies can be found above the fantasy line, which also have a flavor of SciFi or fantasy.
