Valentine’s Day is generally a day of flowers, chocolates, cakes, gifts, candlelight dinners, and romantic cruises. Don’t want to spend your money on regular gift ideas like movie theatres, cruises, dinner etc. This Valentine’s Day, do something different; stay at home with your partner and enjoy watching some romantic movies together.
These are some of my personal favorites and the best romantic movies of all time. Just enjoy your day with some great movies ever and remember this day as your best Valentine’s Day experience.
Set in Africa during the early days of World War II, Casablanca is one of the best romantic movies of all time as well as winner of 3oscars. Sometimes it all just comes together- the story, the dialog, the cast, the direction – and you find something that stands the perfect test of time. The story is focused on a man named Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), a former freedom fighter who runs a famous nightclub in Casablanca. He comes into possession of two valuable letters of transit that will provide a safe passage to Lisbon. He later discovered that his only love Isla (Ingrid Bergman) and her husband Victor (Paul Henreid) are looking for free passage to America. She wants Victor to escape, so she asks for Rick’s help and they plan to run off with the letters of transit. Rick and Isla shared a great screen pairing, but it’s the direction that make this movie.
Titanic has been my favorite movie since I was in school. Winner of 11 Oscars and around 40 nominations, this movie will take you to a whole new world. The romance and connection shared by Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) is heart touching and moving. The story of Jack and Rose is something unforgettable because once you see it, their story is forever engraved into your heart. The real attraction, of course, is the sinking of the ‘unsinkable ship’, created by some of the impressive special effects.
What would be more romantic than watching Titanic with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day!
THE NOTEBOOK (2004)
This is one of my personal favorites and a perfect story of a timeless and heart-moving romance. The story is centered on poor Noah (Ryan Gosling) and rich young Allie (Rachel McAdams), who meet in a carnival and fall for each other. But they are separated by Allie’s parents because of their social differences. After waiting for too many years, Allie finally gets engaged to Lon (James Marsdon).
This movie truly moves you and it really speaks about love in a way that most of the romantic movies miss.
A WALK TO REMEMBER (2002)
This movie was released when I was fourteen and liked it even then. This is the best romantic movie ever and you won’t believe I’ve watched this movie over 10 times. The movie tells the story of two teens, Landon (Shane West) and Jamie (Mandy Moore), who are brought together after Landon gets into some trouble and as a punishment has to join the drama club. There he is helped by the boring and geeky Jamie, the reverend’s daughter who then inspires Landon for a drastic change and soon starts to develop strong feelings for each other. But when Landon discovers the terrible secret of Jamie, it is then they realize the true meaning of love and fate. Really a great movie but the ending is very emotional.
