Your Personal Guide to What Show or Movie You Need to Start Binging ASAP

To All The Boys I've Loved Before - A Netflix Film Based Off the Book by Jenny Han

If you're stuck in movie or TV show limbo, this is the guide for you. (Feel free to skip to the end for a complete list.)

First up:


If you're into high school romcoms, please go watch To All The Boys I've Loved Before. It features a girl who writes love letters to every boy she has ever loved, with no intention of ever sending those letters... but alas, the letters end up in the hands of all five boys she had been crushing on. This movie also features the one and only Noah Centineo—a total heartthrob. I mean, look at him!

Noah Centineo as Peter Kavinsky is dreamy AF.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Another must-see Netflix romcom is The Kissing Booth. It's about a girl who has a crush on her best friend's brother—breaking one of the strict rules set between the two best friends. The romance is real on and off screen—which makes the movie even better. To be fair, it's super cheesy, but who doesn't love a little cheese here and there?

Breaking the rules never hurt anybody...

The Kissing Booth

Next up, The Spectacular Now. It's about two people who you wouldn't think would ever end up as friends, let alone fall in love. Ah, the best kind of romance. This movie is from 2013 and features two of my favorite actors: Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley. Talk about a dream couple.

The best kind of love always surprises you.

The Spectacular Now

Do you ever wish you could travel back in time and get a second chance to sweep the love of your life off their feet? That's what happens in When We First Met, a Netflix original featuring Adam Devine and Alexandra Daddario. A definite must-see.

What would you give to travel back?

When We First Met

Just Friends is one of my all time favorite romcoms & you can watch it on Netflix! It involves Ryan Reynolds, a fat-suit, and a glow up of the century. Every minute of this movie is hilarious and will definitely make you rethink your high school decisions.

Getting out of the friend-zone can be... hard.

Just Friends

Moving onto the next genre...

Rom Without the Com

Now I can get into some of the classics. P.S. I Love You. If you haven't seen this movie already, now is your chance. All I will tell you is this: bring a tissue box with you because, like The Notebook, this movie will have your heart on an emotional rollercoaster.

Love a little, cry a sh*t ton.

P.S I Love You

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is another classic that you must see on Netflix. Have you ever wanted to forget everything about the person who broke your heart? Jim Carrey does just that in this beautiful film.

Sometimes you just have to forgive & forget.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Ryan Gosling did it with The Notebook, but he did it again with Blue Valentine. Love is messy. Love is hard. Love is painful. Go watch this film.

Sometimes being in love can feel kinda blue.

Blue Valentine

Before we go on to the next category, PLEASE check out Before We Go, a love story about Chris Evans. How could you pass this up? This movie will make you wish you missed your train out of NYC, too.

Can a stranger be the man of your dreams?

Before We Go

Now I want to get into some Classics that are on Netflix right now. At least, the...

Strange Movies Which I Don't Know What Category to Put Under

Adult World: Emma Roberts & Evan Peters star in this raunchy film about a girl who is destined to be a famous poet. She thinks that the only way she is going to make it to the top is by stalking a famous writer in hopes of finding a mentor...

Do you ever think you are destined to do great things?

  • The Fosters—Again featuring current Hollywood heartthrob Noah Centineo, this show is about Stef and Lena who are in a relationship and together raising Stef's biological son, a set of twins they are fostering, and another brother and sister that they also decide to foster during the show.

The Family You Wish You Could Be a Part of

The Fosters

  • Weeds—dark comedy
  • Freaks and Geeks—teen comedy, a James Franco & Seth Rogen classic
  • Charmed—My all-time favorite show about three sisters who find out in their 20s that they are witches—not only that, but the most powerful good witches there are who must fight demons in between trying to have a real life (set in the 90s/00s).
