Valentine’s Day has arrived and whether you are spending it with your partner or besties, there is always an excuse to watch the best romance films with them! Whether it be in the cinema or at home, the following films never fail to set that loving mood every year.
Nothing beats the dance at the end of this film. Sure, to get you and those you are spending the most romantic day of the year up and dancing with, as Johnny and Baby’s romance plays out on screen.
The first of two Ryan Gosling films on this list, this classic will forever earn its place as one of the romantic films of all time. Whilst there is a sadness to it, the scene in the rain will make anyone’s heart stop and fall in love with it.
La La Land:
If the music doesn’t make you fall under this spells charms, the romance between Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’s characters will. Tragic but incredible, the sun will shine bright, even in the cold of February with this love story.
10 Things I Hate About You:
Two words – Heath Ledger! Singing his heart out in the role that earned him his legendary status in Hollywood, this film has gone down in history for its portrayal of teen romance. It will make you smile for days after watching it. Fact!
Bridget Jones’s Diary:
Bridget Jones is a pure hero of mine. Battling the attention of two men, whilst finding a new job and getting to grips with her crazy family makes for some entertaining viewing that still makes it a great Valentine’s film nearly 20 years on. Plus, as my mum would point out it has Colin Firth in it.
Loving, heartbreaking, and refreshing are just three reasons why you need to watch this film this Valentine’s Day. Even Cupid doesn’t get matches like this so right, as the characters and their lives play out to make cinematic gold.
It takes two to make a thing go right and Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock know what that is in this comedy about an employee and his boss. The chemistry is electric, and the laughs are loud, as Betty White steals the show.
Fifty Shades Freed:
Out in cinemas just time for the big day, the final part to Ana and Christian’s story will make you feel downright sexy! Capturing the book well, the last film in the series will make you laugh and smile throughout as they experience life as newlyweds.
The Big Sick:
Based on a real love story, this film has caused many hearts to fall in love with it, so much so it has earned itself many awards and nominations including an Oscar’s nod. Not given half the promotion or recognition it deserved upon its release, the film is now a rom-com cult hit.
Call Me by Your Name:
If you haven’t been to the cinema to see this love story on the big screen yet, do so! Not only will it have you falling under its charm from the Italian landscape, but the heart-breaking love story between the two male characters in the film will.
Have a lovely Valentine’s Day everyone and I hope you enjoy one or more of the films on the list with whoever you are spending it with!
