Romance Movies



Romance Movies

This will be a list of my top ten Romance movies i have watched over the years. This list wont be in any order or ranked, it will be randomised.

The Notebook

  In the 1940's in South Carolina, a mill worker Noah and a rich girl Allie are desperately in love, but her parents don't approve of them being together. Noah goes off to serve in world war II and it seems to be the end of their love. Allie becomes involved with another man and it set to be married to him and when Noah returns to the small town years later after their summer romance together, Allie can see clear and their romance is anything but over.


This movie has to be one of my favourite Romance movies of all time and it will be named as a classic for years to come. It was adapted from the novel and what an adaption it was! The movie is emotional in every aspect as its funny, sad, relate-able and passionate to the max.

If you're a passionate person and love romantic movies then this film is perfect for you as it pictures how true love should be and how it was back in the 1940's. 

A Walk To Remember

The story resolves around the love and loss of two characters Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan. The two very different characters find themselves unexpectedly thrown together after a practical joke by Landon and is forced to partake in the school play and is helped by the beautiful but invisible girl Jamie.

This is one of those sad romantic movies but sometimes they're the ones that are the best. Also have you ever herd "opposites attract?" Well this movie proves it all and shows us anyone can fall in love at any time, even if its the most unexpected time of your life. 

The story of how the two met was original and i think its one of the first movies I've seen have this type of story line. If you have seen 'The Fault In Our Stars' its kind of the same plot. 


Titanic

Footage of the departure of the fateful voyage of Titanic, tells the story of the events of the tragic night of the fictional characters Rose who is the upper class survivor and Jack who is the lower class survivor of the Titanic. As an old lady, Rose tells the story how she fell in love with Jack and the horrible disaster that torn them both apart from each others arms. 

If you haven't herd or seen Titanic then you must be a hermit or some kind of modern caveman because this is one of the most iconic movies of all time, which broke box office records and it still one of the biggest box office movies of all time.

Written and directed by the legendary James Cameron, he got the iconic movie 11 Oscar wins under its belt, including best picture and best director, which he deserves with crazy respect. I'm surprised none of the actors got any piece of the pie as they played the characters very well and made the story satisfying to watch.


The Vow


When page wakes up from a coma following a car accident, she has no memory last years she has spent with her husband Leo, The last things she remembers is living with her rich parents and has to choose the life between the life she knows or getting to know her husband all over again.

I'm sure this is an unoriginal story plot because there's other plenty of other movies out there that have the same summary but this one stood out to me the most as i loved the characters/actors for the movie and they made it worth watching in my opinion.

This is the type of movie where you think "imagine if that happened to me." Can you actually imagine though? It would be so frustrating losing your wife/husband to something so tragic and watching them slip away by each day of your life. Lucky for the two it was a happy ending, it was a cliff hanger but one where it made the viewers choose on how the two ended together. 

10 Things I Hate About You 

In the the updated version of the Shakespeare's play 'The Taming Of The Shrew' the new kid in high school Cameron James is head over heals for the popular girl Bianca Stratford, but Bianca's father won't allow her to date anyone until her rebellious sister starts dating. Another boy from school also wants Bianca so he gets Patrick Verona to attempt to win over her rebellious sister to take to the school dance so he has a chance with Bianca. Who will end up with who?

10 Things I Hate About You is one of the 90's classics that everyone loves and i mean everyone! If i asks anyone about the romantic list, there is no doubt that this movie will be in there somewhere, i will put a bet on it!

This movie is a teen romance movie so all the high school teens who's going to prom or what ever, would love this movie and maybe able to relate to it in some way or another. 


The Last Song


Set in small beach town called Tybee Island, Georgia. Where Steve, a divorced father gets the chance to spend the summer with his teenage daughter Ronnie and his younger son Jonah. Rather would rather be in New York back with her friends because she believes her father abandoned her three years ago. Ronnie falls in love with a local boy from the beach town and she reconnects with her father through the love of music.

The only decent Miley Cyrus movie i have ever come across and its a very good one as well because shes not crazy and she seems normal as ever. She played her character very well and the story is sort of similar to A Walk To Remember and its a very emotional movie to watch. 
Ever since watching this movie i'v always wanted to live on the beach as it seems so peaceful with the sound of the waves crashing and seeing the sun shine on the edge of the rippling ocean water. 

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth actually became a real couple together after filming The Last Song and it became serious but the relationship ran its cause and the two ended the relationship, maybe because Liam thought she was crazy? Also the theme song Miley sings for the movie is one of y favourite ballads and you should all listen to it now.

The Girl Next Door


A straight-arrow high school senior falls in love with the perfect "girl next door", only problem is that she's a former porn star. He realises that if he wants the women that he loves, even if she used to be a porn start, he better be willing to risk it all and experience a journey that he could't of prepared himself for.

When i first watched this movie it was around the time of my high school prom and the movie is also set around a high school prom and it got me so obsessed watching this movie because we know how teens get with the opposite sex and all the hormones kicking in, so imagine taking a porn star girl to your high school prom! That would be the best, well for a male it might be any way!

After watching this movie a dozen of times as a horny teenage boy, i developed the biggest crush of the lead female actress who played the porn star Elisha Cuthbert., and im pretty sure she would make some straight females crush on her hard as well.

The Great Gatsby


An adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald novel 'The Great Gatsby, set in Long Island 1929. A Midwesterner Nick Carryway is lured into the lavish life of his mysterious neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Carryway will soon see through the cracks of Mr Gatsby rich existence, where obsession, madness and tragedy await for them both.

Another timeless classic for both the novel and the adapted movie, The Great Gatsby. No other actor could of played the 1920's themed movie any better than Leo DiCaprio as he is very suitable for these types of roles as we have seen him in numerous of old themes movies such as Titanic, J. Edgar, Shutter Island, The Aviator, Gangs Of New York & many more!

The movie won 2 Oscars for Costume Design and Production Design and it was well deserved as the costumes were spot on and very eye catching to watch.

About Time


At the age of, Tim discovers he can time travel in time and change the what ever happens in his life, including his love life. He decides to make his life better by getting a new girlfriend, but she turns out not to be as easy as he thought, as he learns the process of time travel and what it might change for the future timeline. 

One of the most original modern time movies i have seen which has the concept of time travel involved, accept from 'The Time Travelers Wife' which is also a good movie. About Time was different to me because it as humorous and dorky in some ways and the underdog gets the girl of his dreams by using his time traveling powers. I also liked if he went back in time to change something, he would also change something drastically in his present life such as the gender of his new born baby. Oh and by the way i like Rachel McAdam's movies OK! 


Zack & Miri Make A Porno

Life long platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve there financial problems by making an armature adult film together. As the camera's start filming, the two of them begin to feel different and develop feelings for each other, but it's not as simple as they thought it would be. 

Zack & Miri Make A Porno is probably the funniest romance movies on the list, as you can tell by the title. Its the situations they get themselves in to and the process of trying to make a adult film and its just funny thinking about it, let alone watching the movie. Also whats funnier than seeing Seth Rogan make a porno? And what's better than seeing the gorgeous actress Elizabeth Banks half naked? Nothing! 

If you up for a Rom-Com then this is the one to watch as we see the funny moments turn in to unexpected love from the two main characters of the movie. 

Conclusion

Everyone loves a romantic movie, even if they don't know it is a romantic movie from the start, such as Zack & Miri Make A Porno. I think majority of male would like that movie and wouldn't have a clue it was a romantic film. Another example would be 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'. that's another great romance movie and all i'm saying is that some of the best movies are romantic because they capture the deepest emotion from inside of us all, not just love but every kind of emotion there is. 

Romance movies are the ones that people can relate to the most as everyone will go through the emotions we see on the movie screen in reality. They're can be some up's & down's but remember that everyone's life is one big romantic movie in some way or another.
