As Valentine’s Day is edging around the corner, some are going to spend time with their significant other or if you are like me, you’re going to spend time watching romantic movies and asking yourself why couldn’t you be like them.
When you ask someone to tell you a romantic movie, they will most likely say La La Land, The Notebook or Titanic. These movies are classics, and everyone enjoys replaying them over and over again or if they want to have a good cry, but the more famous Gen Z romantic movies are a bit different than what you think.
