I must say, I love movies very much. Actually, I love them enough that at some point I had created a movie addicts union, but that’s all history today. And yet, this passion never went away. I still love them. But never in my life did I like romantic movies. Never. And since today they’re showing quite a few of romantic comedies on telly and there’s no way for me to escape every single one, I thought I’d remind myself and share with you some of the reasons why I hate romcoms.
- They portray some sort of not really fantasy, but still impossible world. And thus they make people think that those stories could happen in real life. And yet, it never happens. Nothing is that perfect. Universe is rarely that brilliant.
- Every story could be a fairytale and every story could be a thriller. It all depends on when you stop telling it. Every love story could go on to become perfect material for a Stephen King book, but if you finish it before shit hits the fan, you have yourself a romcom.
- Also, no person on this planet is truly altruistic, so what kind of unconditional love are we talking about? Seriously we’re only with the people that we are with because we benefit from that in one way or another. Yet, romcoms make it seem like it’s not the case. It’s literally like photoshop. We’re angry about them portraying the way people look in an unnatural way, but we’re all perfectly fine with having this unreal idea of true love in the air?
I sound like a 13-year-old girl, who just had her heart broken, don’t I? But, honestly, having watched a couple of romcoms in the past month, I got really mad about them portraying some fantasy world in them!
