Love comes in many forms, and while you’re gorging on chocolate, flowers, and a glass of wine on Valentine’s day, we would like to share with you some movies you can enjoy on this pleasant day. Romantic movies can make you laugh out loud time and time again, and sometimes they make you cry your eyes out. Eventually, you get all warm and fuzzy when the boy finally gets his girl. So without any further ado, let’s take a look at the list.
The Notebook (2004)
In a list of truly remarkable romantic movies, The Notebook definitely ranks towards the top. The movie was based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, and Nick Cassavetes did a hell of a job directing it. Sometimes it’s hard to translate the book into a movie, but this is not one of those cases as the movie becomes its own entity instead. The movie is filled with brilliantly written quotes and sentimental moments.
The Notebook is handled masterfully, and you will feel like you can relate to the characters throughout the whole movie. This is not one of your typical “boy meets girl” movies that are sometimes just too predictable. You don’t see a lot of clichés in it because the script is spotless. Cassavetes put together a great cast, including Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Joan Allen, and James Garner. The movie will sweep you off your feet and that’s why it is number one on our list.
The Theory of Everything (2014)
The Theory of Everything is a great romantic movie about one of the greatest scientists of our generation, Stephen Hawking. Ironically enough, the movie has very little science in it but instead tells an inspirational story about Hawking‘s struggle with his illness. The plot follows the uphill struggle that the world-renowned genius went through when dealing with his illness while trying to maintain his relationship with his wife, Jane.
Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones portrayed their characters brilliantly, and their chemistry in the movie was breathtaking. The film carries its pedigree with style and class, and the duo of Eddie (Stephen) and Felicity (Jane) develop a sonorous dynamic that reflects a naturalistic relationship. Simply put, it’s a match made in heaven. The Theory of Everything is an incredible movie with stand-out acting and skilled direction.
500 Days of Summer (2009)
500 Days of Summer is an astonishing piece of work from Mark Webb, a first-time feature movie director. The movie’s screenplay is beautifully crafted and we get to see two sensational performances by Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel as the two starring originals. The movie is a charmingly engaging and moving tale of love with both leading characters bringing a certain sensitivity and quirkiness to their roles.
Marc Webb, the director, masterfully captured the feeling of naïve, innocent love. Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Tom Hansen carried out the movie with the help of his acting abilities and physical comedy. He shares his pain and frustrations with the audience and let them feel his disappointment. 500 Days of Summer is a film that scores high in all the boxes, and is definitely worth checking out.
