My cold has been lingering for a really long time, but it’s finally getting better. For about a week I could barely sleep because I was coughing 24/7, but now it’s nearly gone. During this period I may or may not have been binge-watching some tv-shows and movies.
The other day my brother and I watched the movie Self/less (I recommend it, by the way), and it got me into a Ryan Reynolds craze for a bit. We ended up re-watching Blade: Trinity (it’s still as bad as it was when it first came out btw, but Ryan is still hilarious in it), just for Ryan. And last night I watched The Proposal, which is a romantic comedy.
I love romantic comedies. Not all of them, some are pretty awful, but some just hit that “aaaww” spot. Well, and Ryan Reynolds being in it helps. This one hits that spot for me. It’s funny and sweet at the same time, with not too many cringe-worthy parts. Though it gets close to the “successful career woman who will only be happy once she finds a man that fixes her life”-trope. Still… Dunno, it doesn’t bother me too much in this particular one. She’s still a successful career woman at the end of the movie, and her growth as a character isn’t just because she finds a man.
Anyway, I’ve been watching that, as well as a tv-show with a “will they-won’t they” type theme, that had some pretty sweet parts. I can’t help it. I like tv-shows where I can “ship” couples. And cute, fluffy movies. (I like others too… but that post isn’t about those!)
Also, this is pretty me when watching things like The Proposal.
Does anyone else like romantic movies? What about tv-shows where you can ship couples?
