This is my month! Not just in terms of it being all about romance for Thursday Movie Picks but it’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! This year, after the hell 2020 was, I’ve decided to sort of celebrate throughout the month. Just have fun with it. I have a vacation coming up and I just hope to fully book my days with stuff I love. But I digress, we’re here for romance tropes and fake relationships! For those who do not yet know I love a fake relationship trope to hell and back. It’s fun, it’s weird and it just brings me joy. The trope itself is more common in books I feel like so picking three movies was harder but not impossible. No theme within a theme (unless you count underrated movies a theme) because there’s not a lot of fake relationship movies out there and that’s a shame.
“I’m joking, I’m joking, we will live happily ever after.”
Does this sound familiar? Well, it should, because it’s pretty much every other rom-com out there with these break-ups in the third act. That is getting a little old. Plus, the reason for the break-ups is almost always something completely insane. And mostly, they disregard general human laws, like communication is never happening in these situations. It’s always like something is overheard, then drama and break-up follow, and months later they finally talk and realise it was a huge mistake. Anyway, that’s what this list is about – very bad and disastrous break-ups in romantic comedies.
Oh by the way, SPOILERS.
As many of you probably noticed, and what hopefully brought you here, was my latest post on my old blog-address. Yes, the title was a total clickbait moment but I don’t get many of those, so I hope you forgive me that one. In other words, welcome to my new home, my own little special corner of the Internet brought to you through sweat, tears and hours worth of “how to” articles: it’s been a blast! So even if there are some bugs I still need to fix, I hope you feel as welcomed here as you did over at mettelray.wordpress.com. So welcome, and enjoy!
Since today is Valentine’s Day, and most of you would likely want to spend it with a loved one Netflix and Chilling, I wanted to help out. You see, I bet there are couples out there, who for some reason think that Fifty Shades Grey could be a good choice for the evening but trust me, it is far from good. But if you truly want to watch something, and you want to watch something bad, here are 10 bad romantic movies that are a so much better than any of the Fifty Shades movies!
