Why Fifty Shades is anything but romantic!

Everyone at the moment is apparently in love with Christian Grey again. You know that billionaire who thrives off abusing women with pain in “sex” punishments to make himself feel better.

In Fifty Shades Darker he even calls himself a sadist. He’s controlling, manipulative and suffocating. Telling you that you can’t do something and wanting you just for his own. The latter of that would or could be nice I guess but not in the way it is portrayed through his character. Does this therefore risk our ideas of love and relationships to change?

My Top 100 Romantic Films

This is something I have been looking to put together for a while now I am truly an absolute sucker for romantic films, I really cannot resist a good romantic drama and the good romantic comedy. We all know love in real life is nothing like in our favourite films but that is surely a reason why I like them so much, they are different. Obviously give us an unrealistic expectation about finding love and well keeping it with someone.

I am picking the 100 films to be in this list that are my favourites to watch, I thought that would be the best and easiest way to rank them. I guess it will also help me to see if I prefer the hard hitting tragic love stories or those that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside with the cute happy ending romantic films.
