1. About Time
If you’re ready to be attacked by the feels, then you can watch this movie. Tim, has the ability to Time Travel, but he hasn’t perfected it yet. He decides to use Time Travel to meet Mary. What happens when he succeeds and meets her? Watch About Time on Netflix, hoping you enjoy this Sci-fi Rom-Com Masterpiece.
Also, this film teased me with a lesbian Margot Robbie for about 0.4 secs and then cruelly ripped her away from me.
2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Creating a fake relationship contract and then falling in love with each other, yeah, I just gave you the synopsis for the movie. Kavinsky has the vibe of a young Mark Ruffalo and Lara is a terrible driver, cannot believe that the male and female leads have been reduced to Sixteen candles and Fight Club.
A cute and wholesome ROM COM, but my advice is to fellow women out there is that if a guy likes Fight Club, run the other direction.
3. The Kissing Booth
Elle Even, the most unpopular girl in school plans to put up a kissing booth in order to kiss her crush. Later finding out that her crush is her best friend’s brother!!

12. To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
A Netflix new age rom-com, which happens to have Noah as the male lead? Nothing new here. So Lara and Peter are official in this sequel, but a guy who has receives one of her love letters enters the picture here.
