Alright, so I know most of you probably hate Valentine’s Day as it’s a symbol of A) Corporate bullshit to make you spend money and/or B) Your crushing loneliness, but we’re at least going to talk about fictional romance for a minute here on the day of.
Yes, I’m a guy and I like action movies where buildings, cars, people and animals all blow up, but come on, most of us have a soft spot for a romantic movie or two.
No, it might not be The Notebook or Titanic, but there are many good films out there that just so happen to focus on a romance. I have a few of my favorites, Once, pictured above, being one of them, and more recently I thought 500 Days of Summer was excellent. And I’m not ashamed to admit that Love Actually is one of my favorite movies period, and I watch it at least once a year around Christmas time. There are about 47 different romances to choose from in that one movie.
So what’s yours? Or are you just going to pretend to be a cold-hearted bastard?
