Honestly, I just can’t. I added another couple to my “fight all impossibilities” list (it’s long FYI). Red Riding Hood is definitely a recommend for anyone who likes romance - I’ve always been a sucker for them so this may be a movie I buy on Itunes..etc. For anyone who knows me, this means a lot.
Throughout the movie I couldn’t help thinking of all the other shows/movies/books that I’ve fallen in love with just because the couple has to overcome massive obstacles to be with one another. For me it started with Buffy & Angel (see their sexiness below).
Their love still brings me to tears because as any fan would know she’s the slayer and he’s a vampire <—- DOOMED FROM THE BEGINNING. (But I wont go there).
Then came middle school where I had to read Romeo & Juliet (LOVE). Star-crossed lovers who can’t be with one other because of a family feud - WHAT?! Super drama, I ate that puppy right up. Unfortunately they both died at the end.
Two years ago I added Edward and Bella on my list (book version not the movies) - and we finally get a somewhat happy ending!! They end up being together as vampires in the end. The only thing I did not like was that they had a kid.
Peter & Valerie are now my favorite. Not only had they been crushing on one another since they were tots, but he goes out of his way to be with her. *SPOILER ALERT* At the very end of the movie he gets bit by the werewolf and therefore becomes one, therefore dooming any normal relationship he can have with her. There is a happy ending though: homie learns how to control himself and comes back to be with her. ULTIMATE SWOON.
I’m just a girl in love with tragic relationships that end well.
