1. Was a great film! Watched it 3 times In a row and was still exiting everytime couldn't draw myself away from it. The chemesty between the 2 characters was unreal, and the acting was on point. Love the whole boy poor Rich girl theme, shows that people in this world fall in love with who they are not what they have. Ossi background went so well with the film itself. Films like these don't normally have a part 2 but would really like one! Would be something to look forward to. Have watched a lot of movies on Netflix lately and this has sure topped them all off.
I am truly in love with this film! Have recommended it too friends and they love it too!
2. The movie I never thought I needed. It's predictable but the development of the story gets really more exciting and you'll never get bored. I loved the humor and the characters especially the chemistry between Isi and Ossi. Not really a fan of poor boy-rich girl kind of movies but this is absolutely an exception. It also teaches a lesson about finding happiness in other things besides money. I love the whole movie. I was already hooked when Isi also vibes with hip hop music. Hope it gets more attention as much as other romantic films on Netflix.

1. This movie is absolutely FANTASTIC! Not only did Jenny Han write an epic book series with such an (in my opinion) relatable main character, but it became one of the best movies I have ever seen! This movie completely shows what my personal experiences of finding love are like. Lara Jean Song Covey writing love letters to all of the boys she has ever loved is a great way to express everything you want to say on paper, and she clearly did want them to be sent! This movie gives you the valuable lessons of not being afraid to live on the edge sometimes, and that love isn't always hopeless. Lara Jean (truly) ended up with Peter Kavinsky at the end of the movie, someone that she thought would NEVER date her. This just shows that love can be found between people you never would expect! This movie overall is absolutely outstanding and is now my favorite movie of all time. Thank you, Jenny Han!
2. I can relate to this movie so much. Watched it for five times, and I'll never get enough of it. From family to friendship and love life, everything is so relatable. How you can't hide anything from your siblings, how you should put family first before anything, how much you actually misses someone you lost, how much you actually fell for someone that you have no rights with, that feelings of having crush, that feeling of being clowned or an outcast everything make senses. Teenagers will probably love this as much as I did. Well not just teens, anyone will tho. I can literally feel all the emotions portrayed by Lana Condor as Lara Jean in this movie and I'm definitely gonna check the books out too. Big thanks to Jenny Han for writing these amazing storyline, can't wait for the next sequels.

1. This movie is amazing all of the actors are my favorite and I do not think that there is a better movie than this one. The ending made me cry from how romantic it is and how dramatic. I can't even believe this I LOVE this series so much ugh I can't even stop crying from how sad but happy it was I can't wait for the last one!!!! Wait but did any of you realized that in the first movie they had John Ambrose as a white male and not a black male that's weird but hey its okay because they made the perfect actor for the spot also did everyone forget about how at the end of part 1 they had one of the boys show up at her house like hey who is hew and what is his story or did we just really not need to know. Idk but im kinda curious and why did they have a new guy direct it because it is definitely is missy all the teenage romance for the girl. It is missing all of the conflict between "Team John' and :Team Peter" these movies are sadly really confusing. Just like we all know that the two best friends always date each others other best friend cause like we all didn't know that cat and trevor were gonna get together.
2. To All The Boys I Loved Before: I Still Love You - Raise your hands if 2 years is too long for us to wait for this sequel. Its a great coming-of-age teen romance. No dull moments for me because usually I keep checking how much time left while watching a movie. I felt like 100+min screentime is not enough like I'm asking for more. The only thing that I noticed is how Peter Kavinsky got a less attention to give way to the new crush-of-the-moment, John Ambrose. But I guess its a good thing because I noticed that the sequel is more focus on Laura Jean's thoughts and emotions. Another adorable character is Stormy, the elderly woman from Belleview retirement home. She got this feisty and cool personality. I wish we could have Stormy in our lives where we could ask not just relationship but also real life advice w/o sounding boring. The good moral lesson that we can get from this cute teen romance flick is NOT COMPARE OURSELVES TO OTHERS. That we're uniquely different. I just found out that the To All The Boys I Loved Before is the most streamed movie in Netflix repeatedly watched per account. Count me in coz I watched both movies twice last weekend. hahahahaha.
See You Yesterday (2019)
After her brother is killed in a miscarriage of justice, aspiring inventor Claudette 'CJ' Walker uses her scientific mind to create two time machines, one for her, and the other for her friend Sebastian. As they use the machines to try and alter the day CJ's brother died, they come to learn the ultimatum of time travel: All Actions Have Consequences. (Source: See You Yesterday | www.imdb.com)

Any man (or woman) that has ever dreamt of time travel, has something, or someone, they desperately want to change. When young and bright students of jamaican descent tell their science teacher about their brilliant invention and the bright futures that lay ahead, all seems great in the world. But The very brief appearance by Michael J. Fox himself puts that very question on the stage - it’s not the mashine, it’s the purpose of it, that matters. Woven into the time travel jenre is also always the debate of determinism, of fate, versus one’s freedom of choice. At the determinist side of affairs there is police brutality towards the black minority, something that floods the streets as much on the screen as it sadly does in real life. In the very background, setting the stage, local news announce yet another senseless violence and death of an innocent black man, shot and killed by the police. Heroine’s father is no one to be seen, and as her older brother is wearing his “dog tags”, we can assume that he as well has died during his army service. Soon after the successful first field test of the time mashine, main heroine’s brother gets mistaken as a local robber and shot, with us left wondering whether he was in the wrong place during the wrong time or exactly where he was supposed to be. Unable to accept yet another loss and desperately trying to fix that our brave girl goes on series of time jumps learning like others before her that in time travel, all has consequences. The open ending might be seen as an easy way out - will she keep trying to find a way to keep everyone alive? Will she spend an eternity watching her best friend and her older brother die? I bring forward a different conclusion - perhaps the girl will try to change the only thing she might be able to, herself. Whether she will try to undo the situations of that day based largely of her own confrontational style of behaviour is unclear. Regrettably, it seems that the hint of the ending intended is there - shutting everyone out, unwilling to loose anyone else, she runs into it alone, wearing her fathers “dog tags” - willing to sacrifice herself instead and hoping that will be enough for everyone else to stay safe. Like father, like daughter. Who here agrees? Who thinks it’s too “donnie darko”? All in all, a movie to watch.
A comedy about four best girlfriends in the last two weeks of their senior year of high school. Its about dealing with the first real losses in life leaving your best friends, your first encounter with death, and the loss of time. It is about that odd mixture of grief and nostalgia experienced by young people as they try to understand these losses. It is also about getting stoned with your friends in your car while listening to hip-hop. Hale will play Lily, a popular high school senior bound for NYU in the fall who knows she is good-looking and flaunts it accordingly. Very assertive and a control freak, Lily struggles to delegate even the smallest prom-related responsibilities. The glue of the group, she values her best friends over everything else even more than her beloved bong. (Source: Dude | www.imdb.com)

1. Because the thing in the moive will lead you in tears and make you feel like you....what is happening and you feel how they feel and how it end we satisfy you just watch it you won’t regret
2. This was a cool movie to watch tbh. All about high school best friends and couples
3. I will not say it is totally a good or a bad movie. Reason, it shows the closeness of friends, that is, always been with each other at all times and the bad side is the use of drugs, that is, always getting high at all times.

1. A refreshing take on teen romance movies. Not the typical guy-has-terrible-partner-so-he-falls-in-love-with-someone-else type of story. It's a really insightful trip into the life of someone struggling with their identity, in denial of being gay because of bad stories or experiences.There's a lot that any straight or LGBTQ person can take away from this film. It's a story that has a lot of inspiring themes and truths and in it. It has pleasing visuals, and some gems in the script. The characters are lovable and the acting is really decent most of the time. It's not a completely mindless Rom-Com, but it's not too deep either. A really pleasant watch that leaves you feeling satisfied afterward.
2. This is one of those movies that needed to happen, along with all the other LGBT movies out there and it fits right in there perfectly, this movie along with others are always great, they help people come out to their parents, friends and more importantly they become happy with who they are, this movie was beautiful to watch, Ben Stiller as a producer did an amazing job and director Craig Johnson also did a brilliant job with bringing this movie the power it needed, so if you need a movie to watch, give this one a go.
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

1. I cannot get over how amazing this movie is. It beautifully displays a very true form of the teenage experience-- I'm a teenager myself, and I have never related to a fictional character more. It's not necessarily that I think I have a lot of personality traits in common with any of the characters, but the acting was excellent and so, so raw that I couldn't help but feel connected to them and the story line. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to feel moved by a coming-of-age story that is always entertaining, not afraid to delve into the deeper and darker corners of adolescence, but that is somehow also a feel-good movie.
2. I was not in the mood to watch a teen highschool comedy tonight but I told myself to expand my horizons and I'm quite glad I did. This movie is one of the most emotionally relatable movies I've watched and is now a personal favorite.Being a recently graduated highschool student, I easily gravitated towards the themes in this film. I myself remember how when it came to life and what I thought of myself, it was very hard to be positive. Those feelings where it's hard to like yourself because it seems no one else does. Where it feels you'll never be the popular or privileged or get your crush and have to accept that. And desperately hating the world and people for not being able to look past the meaningless glamours of life that you dont have and simply value you and your character. Etc. Even though I'm male, I very easily understood a lot of the themes in this film, it was nicely portrayed. I definitely recommend.And for everybody else who's felt this way in the reviews, where yall been?? Lets be friends lol!
The Perfect Date (2019)
To save up for college, Brooks Rattigan creates an app where anyone can pay him to play the perfect stand-in boyfriend for any occasion.

1. The perfect date...in the words of cecelia ahern the moment you learn how to embrace all your flaws is when you truly become perfect. This is pretty much what the movie reflects a guy wanting to be rich Popular and wanting everything to be grand and huge but in the process he started to loose himself try to pretend to be ppl he forgot who Brooks truly was. What’s truly amusing is that it is so relatable. This one girl who helps him keep up his smile throughout is this person we all want and have but don’t value em. The perfect date is the perfect movie for someone wanting to enjoy ,Laugh and go all awwwww for a while .Have a great time watching it. Ps: my most fav line in this movie is “if i have to pretend to be something else to get in there then that’s probably not where I belong
2. I feel Noah centineo is my new crush these days. I liked this movie Primarily for two reasons first obviously because of Noah and second because of that unique app through which one can hire fake boyfriend, dance partner , game partner and many more Story is quite relevant in today's senario. these days teen is so confused and everyone wants to be rich Popular. This story is also about a guy who wants to be rich, Popular, he desires getting the best college, date a popular girl in short he wants everything huge in life. For this he started lying to others, and in this process he started to loose himself. But that one girl love of his life made him realise what he really was. It's pointless to fake Everytime to get the best instead happiness lies in being original and sometimes it's good to settle down for good enough things.
Roxanne Roxanne (2017)
In the late 80s/ early 1990s, the most feared battle MC in Queens, New York, was a fierce teenage girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders. At the age of 14, Lolita "Roxanne Shanté" Gooden was well on her way to becoming a hip-hop legend as she hustled to provide for her family while defending herself from the dangers of the streets of the Queensbridge Projects in NYC.

1. I thought this movie was phenomenal, Nia Long did an amazing job and the young lady who played Roxanne was fantastic. This was very eye opening and inspirational about life in general: knowing yourself & knowing your worth. Most importantly, going after your dreams and not letting anyone come in between that. Unfortunately, the same issues regarding the lack of men are still very prominent now.
2. One of the best captures of growing up in NY on Long Island I have ever seen!!!! Everything was right on point, as well as very educational on the life of Roxanne. Awesome must see!
Willowdean ('Dumplin'), the plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, signs up for her mom's Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town. (Source: Dumplin | www.imdb.com)

1. Loved the characters, screenplay is very good. I am a Jennifer Anniston fan ever since friends but I liked the daughter ‘s role too. Although it’s a movie and unrealistic when Will is chosen by the most handsome school boy over the beauty pageant winner, and also they should have shown dumplin ‘s effort to exercise and get thin or something like that , to convey a message that healthy food and exercise are the most important things for growing teens along with self esteem. All in all a good movie to watch.
2. Overall, this is a fun movie that had an unexpected storyline! (Or should I say storylines). The differences between her and her mom and then making her mom proud was relatable for me as the wild second child. There’s nothing quite like surprising your parent and making them beyond proud (I teared up more than expected). I also love Dolly Parton and her music. it spoke just the way Dolly does - sassy but spiritual. The previews for the movie are completely different (in my opinion). It’s not the perfect movie but it’s a fun, feel good movie with a bit more depth and Dolly Parton soul than expected. :)
