My rant about romantic relationships in cinema

My rant about romantic relationships in cinema 

Romance is not my favorite genre for a couple of reasons. First of all I am tired of characters claiming that they love each other and not establish why they love each other, other than superficial reasons. This is what I hear in these films, 

I love you 

me too 

I can’t love you 

me too 

I’m in pain 

my too 

I can write better dialogue then that. Why can’t actors and actresses show they love each other without saying it and be subtle for example in Men in Black I like the bromance between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones because they have good chemistry. Also I'm tired of these films making it seem like love is mystic, love at first site I think whoever say that meant lust at first site. How can you fall in love with someone just by looking at them, does that sound like something an 8 year old would say? 

 I like the romantic in this films, Romeo must die, Captain American the first avengerShrek and Batman mask of the Phantasm. The reasons I like the relationship in this movies is because the couples have a lot in common, or they're different, there subtle about there interest in each other and they don’t let appearances and first impressions bother them. I would like to see more of that in this genre or films that have romantic elements. 

I wish people would stop thinking that an unattractive person can't be with an attractive one, no wonder the divorce rate is high. We want someone to love us despite our appearance. There’s more to getting to know someone other then asking what your favorite things are, what you like to do for funny and what you want to do with your life. You can also learn about someone by seeing how they carry themselves and handle situations. It's easy to talk the talk but walk the walk that something else. Just like we learn about the main character in a movie or TV show, you learn about the person by how he or she talk, act, treated others and handle situations. 

Another reason why this is not my favorite genre is because I can write stories for this genre, being romantic shouldn’t be that hard the challenge is being creative. Romance means making someone feel special I have done this with people I know by giving them cards, candy, a rose and a stuff animal on holidays, birthdays, and to make there day. Also I try to put a smile on their faces. That what love is I choose to do these thing, I don’t regret it even thaw they provoke me to wrath and be ungrateful. 

P.S I also would like to see men stand up to women, I mean this is a problem I have notice in relationships in movies and in real life. By standing up for yourself I mean stop letting them seduce you.  

Here are some examples of what I am taking about
