[Editor’s Note: This is a continuation of a previous column of the same name. This column will contain spoilers for the following films: “Sierra Burgess is a Loser,” “The Kissing Booth,” “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” “When We First Met” and “Bird Box.”]
If you are a fan of chick flicks, you will like a lot of the Netflix original films.
One of my favorites is “Sierra Burgess is a Loser,” which isn’t a typical romantic movie.
The film is about a girl who gets a text from a wrong number, which happens to be the hottest guy in school.
He thinks he is talking to a popular cheerleader, but doesn’t realize he is being catfished by Sierra, a band nerd.
Eventually, he finds out who he’s really been talking to and ends up liking her even though she isn’t the stereotypical thin, blonde cheerleader.
Shannon Purser and Noah Centineo are amazing actors and seem like they would actually be in love in real life.
My second favorite is “The Kissing Booth” which is a cliché movie but is still super cute.
The main character ends up liking her best friend’s older brother who has been a family friend for years. 
They have their typical fights and arguments but, of course, they still end up being in love even though he has to leave her for college.
Netflix recently announced an upcoming sequel and I can only imagine that it will be as good as the first, but we will see.
Another one of my favorites is “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” which also stars Noah Centineo. I think he’s just so dreamy to me that I am going to love every movie he’s in.
In this movie, Lana Condor, the main actress, writes letters to all the boys she has ever loved. She doesn’t intend to deliver them because they are like her diary. However, her sister finds them and gives them to all the boys, one of them being Centineo’s character, Peter.
We all know how it ends; they fall in love. Happily ever after.
Another funny, yet romantic movie is “When We First Met,” which is about a man going back in time to figure out how to get the girl of his dreams to fall in love with him. 
He doesn’t figure out until the end that she isn’t even who he loves; it’s her friend who was there the whole time while he had his eyes set on the other girl.
On a totally different genre, “Bird Box” was an insanely weird movie.
I heard a lot of people recommend it to me, and Sandra Bullock was starring in it, so I figured, why not? 
Big mistake.
I am not a fan of scary, suspenseful movies. Even “Rugrats” used to scare me, as a kid.
This movie was nothing like I thought it would be. I’m not sure what I thought “Bird Box” meant, but I was wrong.
It was definitely one of the eeriest things I’ve ever seen.
