    "The Spectacular Now is a movie that I thought was good. I had read the book before and thought that it was alright,. I admit that I liked the movie version better though and it's probably because the cinematography in the movie was surprisingly good too. "

    "Gone with the Wind is a CLASSIC. There's no denying that if a romance movie is what you want, this is a true classic that you should watch. Even the fact that the movie is super old just adds to how great it is!"

    "Twilight was a phenomenon when it came out. Every teenager was obsessed with it and when the movie came out it was even worse. Haha! The story isn't really a deep one but i guess it's romantic enough. The effects were good in the movie too and impressive in some parts also. "
