When reviewing a list of favorite movies of mine recently I discovered an interesting trend in titles and genres. I noticed, that among the three-hundred plus films, the selections that would fall into the love and romance category are mostly from a decade (or more) ago, and the ones that would be segregated into the cringe-worthy “Rom-Com” category ( I hate that term), they all seem to have been borne of the 90’s, wavering with hesitation at the start of the 2000’s, and disappearing without much of a death rattle into nothingness. Sure, there are exceptions, most of them plucked from the obscure, “indie” defined, accidentally stumbled on via Netflix variety, but for the most part their inclusion in my list of choices has declined to near extinction. What has become of the cinematic love story? Did we leave our love of love back in the 90’s?
