So I was watching clips from romance movies om YouTube and I was scrolling through the comments and one comment triggered a thought in my head that made me want to write a blog about romance movies. This person said, “I’m watching romantic scenes from movies because I have no life.” Why do people like looking up romantic scenes from their favorite movies? Today I watched the ending scenes of A Cinderella Story starring Hilary Duff, Bring it On starring Kirsten Dunst, and 10 Things I Hate About You starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. All great movies and all ending in a kiss where the girl gets the guy of her dreams after overcoming some type of obstacles because let’s face it, love is never easy, right? But some might argue that these romantic movies set an unrealistic standard of what love really is. I don’t completely disagree. I think these kind of movies can set you up for high expectatioms and it’s mostly women that view these types of movies. I’ve even seen some YouTube comments after watching the Hilary Duff clip that says they were disappointed when they got to high school because that’s the kind of high school experience they were expecting. Some people might say that this is damaging and can remove a person from reality, but I say what’s wrong with escaping from reality every now and then as long as you know real life doesn’t end like most movies. I like watching romance movies because they send butterflies through my stomach and make my heart flutter and I love that feeling.
