We welcome back our friend Kelly Alyse from The Film Obsession for some of her insight into why girls should give their boyfriend’s DVD collection a shot.

We all know it’s a typical trait of women to be immediately attracted to the “It’s Complicated”, “27 Dresses” type films, and to be fair I’m no stranger. “Twilight” is my guilty pleasure, and when I say guilty I don’t mean it at all because I adore the series.

Taking this out, I have explored the different shorts and come up with a top five which you must watch in order to gain the real satisfaction of the artwork these films use. (more…)
