Why I Hate Romantic Movies

by - April 07, 2019

It's been so long since I last came here πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯
Anyways, before I start ranting, I should clear the cobwebs 😏😏😏😏.
It's really dusty and dirty because no one has been here for such a long time and it's all my fault.

I haven't blogged for over two months and guess why?
I'm pretty sure you have no idea why but I'd tell you anyways…
I've been given excuses πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ

Oh I need a laptop
Oh I need inspiration
Oh it's been too long
Oh Oh Oh Oh and more Ohsssss

I should know better but it seems like the more I know the less I implement πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“.
I always tell people that consistency is the key to a blogger's success and here I am😣😣😣😣😣😣😣.

Do you think am still a blogger πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”?
Anyways I own a blog so I'm a blogger even though I don't blog frequentlyπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

I finally got around to getting a new laptop. I told myself that the reason why I had stopped writing was that I had lost all my creative works alongside my old laptop, so I guess writing suddenly seemed like such heavy work.
I guess I could say I tricked myself into thinking my creative genie was trapped in the lamp of sorrow.

So, I've decided to ramble about everything and anything I want to until I'm ready for “more serious” writing.

In this blog post, I will be rambling about romantic movies.
I am sick and tired of watching romantic movies.
There is absolutely nothing exciting or toe-curling about those anymore.
They've become a sad clichΓ©.
I could, in fact, I can determine the ending of the story from the beginning.

I am sick of that!

I'm not talking about romantic books that have been adopted into movies like “To All the Boys I’ve Loved” or “Me Before You”.

I am talking about this clichΓ© romantic movies loitered on Netflix.

I've been on Netflix for two days now and I am thoroughly nauseated at how similar all these flicks are.
“Princess Switch”, “Christmas Prince” “Isn’t It Romantic” etc…..

All these are talking about the same thingπŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

They just switch it up a bit, it’s like changing the color of a weave but it's still the same damn weaveπŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’.
If you keep on changing the colors, it's no longer exciting, it just becomes a wannabe rainbow.
You might think you're switching styles by cutting the weave short or curling it but sooner you're gonna run out of options to switch or you might use the wrong options and that's how these half baked romantic flicks are made.
Stories you can't chew properly because they're stale, cold and might even have some mold.
Not healthy!

I can't possibly be the only one tired of these horrible things 😫😫😫😫😫😫.

In case you couldn't pick through my ramblings, I'm going to neatly list out the reasons why I hate romantic movies

  1. They're all the same
Look at every single romantic movie from the inception of time, the conflict is always the same.
Why can't these scriptwriters think about new conflicts?
It's either the boy cannot be with the girl or the girl can't be with the boy, this is just the conflict in almost every movie produced these days.
It's stale!
I'd love for scriptwriters to actually think and come up with something refreshing?

P.S if you know of any refreshing romantic movie, please comment with the title, so I can have a breath of fresh air.

  • 2. They're all the same 😰😰😰
There's been like a trend in Hollywood lately where the girl has to find herself, love herself and maybe then find love and everything will be okay.
It was cool at first until it became a trend, now I’m just disgustedπŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–.
How would you feel if someone kept shoving the same food down your throat whenever you are hungry.
It's the same way I feel about these movies.
I'm sick of them!
Because there is no spice in them.
Remember variety is the spice of life?

I'm sure you get the memo by now, but in case you didn't, let me say it again. I hate romantic movies because they're all the same.

It's annoying how people say Nollywood movies are always the same, well, newsflash so is Hollywood.

I'd stop my ramblings here
If you have seen any refreshing movie and would like to recommend to me, please do so in the comment section.

Thank you 😘😘😘

The merrier, the better ❤❤❤❤
