No, Netflix Didn't Romanticize Ted Bundy, They Just Showed How Easily Killers Can Hide In Plain Sight

Ted Bundy was a man capable of presenting himself in a charming, handsome manner. This, unfortunately, tricked women into thinking he was a good guy, and in turn, resulted in such a high number of victims.

No, Netflix Didn't Romanticize Ted Bundy, They Just Showed How Easily Killers Can Hide In Plain Sight

There seems to have been controversy over the new Ted Bundy movie about whether or not the terrifying situations the victims were put in is being romanticized for the sake of entertainment. I completely believe that his character is not being romanticized, but the true Ted Bundy is being showcased in this film.

Ted Bundy was an American serial killer, who unfortunately had the charm to lure in any woman he wanted. He showcased himself as this great man, an attractive guy with great charm that any woman would be lucky to be with. He held an attitude that no woman was able to resist. This is exactly how it was so easy for him to find his next victim. Zac Efron's portrayal in the movie "Ted Bundy Tapes" is no romanticized version.

The only true way to showcase who a person was and how they were capable of doing what they did is to play them as they truly were. There were so many women who fell victim to Ted Bundy, all because of his ability to charm them into falling in love with him, and that is worth showing in this movie.

Also, I completely agree with everyone who has been saying that we should remember his victims in the wake of this movie release. They were their own people with their own future, and Ted Bundy thought he had the right to take that away. There is no way we should make this movie and not allow ourselves to remember them. However, this movie is important to make because of the awareness it will bring. Ted Bundy showcased him in a manner that made women come to him, and because of that, he was able to do what he did in a much larger fashion.

This movie should grab the attention of all women, so they can realize that serial killers are not always who you expect them to be. While you may think they look the part of a scary and terrible person, that is not always the case. Some people are not always who you think they are and that is something we all need to realize in order to help prevent the same things from happening to us.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
