My Favorite Romantic Movies

Monday, February 11, 2013

Valentines Day is just around the corner and I'm so in the mood to write my favorite romantic movies of all time! :-) I love watching movies and I never pass up romantic movies even if I fall in line in theaters just to watch it. 

Check out my list in no particular order! :-)


One More Chance is a 2007 Filipino romance film starring Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz.The film was directed by the award-winning director Cathy Garcia-Molina and released under Star Cinema. It currently holds the 6th place in highest-grossing 
Filipino film of all time.


A couple reunite years after the night they first met, fell in love, and separated, convinced that one day they'd end up together.

Starring John Cusack, Kate Beckinsale


The story of two North Carolina teens, Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan, who are thrown together after Landon gets into trouble and is made to do community service. Starring Mandy Moore & Shane West.


Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely and interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England. Starring Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney


A man tells the story of a young couple who struggle through the times as rich daughter and a poor mill worker some 50 or 60 years ago. Two people from different walks of life who meet at a carnival in the 1940s and spend the next bulk of years fighting for love or hiding from it. The story of this couple is relayed back from an elderly man to an old lady in a nursing home via a notebook. As the young couple Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are magnetic while screen legends James Garner and Gena Rowlands areheartbreaking as the older couple. Just try not to cry while watching this flick based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. It's a tearjerker for sure, but there's an underlying sentimentality that rings true. What really does us in is the juxtaposition of Noah and Allie's story of young love set against the modern reality of Allie's deteriorating health. This film has all the elements of a great romance. The angst, crazy young love, lost love, found love and true love in old age. It's a film that truly reinvigorates ones belief that love is worth living for and dying for. Starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.


A young widow discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life. Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life - a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. So when Gerry's life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry. So it's a good thing he planned ahead. Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only through her grief, but in rediscovering herself. The first message arrives on Holly's 30th birthday in the form of a cake, and to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who proceeds to tell her to get out and "celebrate herself". In the weeks and months that follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure and each signing off in the same way; P.S. I Love You. Holly's mother and best friends begin to worry that Gerry's letters are keeping Holly tied to the past. This is definitely a chick flick that will not only make you cry, but make you laugh, plus the women will fall in love with Gerard Butler. Gerard was excellent in his part and Hilary did a fine job as well. At first I didn't think Hilary could pull off the romantic comedy role, but in the end you get use to her doing it. Hilary actually makes you feel her pain and how devastated she was when her husband died. I guarantee you that you will tear up during several scenes. A five tissue movie! This movie will live on as a romantic classic.
