I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!
No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!
I came across the incredible Posterity at some point on Twitter before Christmas, as someone had retweeted them for the very cool film calendar they were releasing. I then got it as a Christmas present (after sending the link on) and after that bought some of the posters. I have eventually got round to putting them up on my wall and thought it was well worthy of it’s own blog post and to encourage my fellow film fans to check out the website for the fantastic minimalistic images and some with quotes.
I have therefore picked some of my favourite quotes from my favourite films. I am sure you won’t be surprised with my choices!
Stumbled across Mettel Ray Movie Blog and spotted a fantastic blogathon and thought I would get involved. Fantastic idea of coming up with your movie alphabet making it consist of movies, directors, actors and actresses who’s lives revolve around movies.
The way I decided to approach picking my alphabet was to put down the first 5 movie related things that came to mind for the certain letter! Well most of the time 5 . . . That was actually harder than I thought!
I have been feeling rather on the lovely dovey side for no reason whatsoever, so thought I would pick my top 10 movie love songs. Or songs about love.
10. My Heart Will Go On – Celine Dion (Titanic)
I think while this song gets a lot of criticism and people saying this dislike it. I am sure when it first came out everyone loved it a lot. It totally fits together with the movie and the ending. “Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you” I mean that line is just so lovely its unreal. I love it!
9. It Must’ve Been Love– Roxette (Pretty Woman)
Probably quite a strange choice with this being top 10 love songs, when this is about a love ending. “It must’ve been love . . . but its over now . . . “. I am sure loads of people have related to this song, but in terms of the movie it wasnt over for Jules and Richard. It was just a small stepping stone until they got together for real in the end. Which is how most people would love to happen to them in there lives.
8. Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers (Ghost)
How could this not be in the top 10?!?!? The very famous pottery scene and when everyone was totally in love with Patrick Swayze after Dirty Dancing. Lovely . . . “I’ve hungered for your touch, alone . . . lonely times . . . and time goes by so slowly . . . ” I think its just perfect for this movie it fit together so well. “Are you still mine . . . I need your love . . .” it really is a deep love song. Longing for the person and wanting them more than anything. Which is just awwwwww.
7. When You Say Nothing At All– Ronan Keating (Notting Hill)
“You say it best . . . when you say nothing it all . . .” It would probably look like a very strange love song, “what I hear when you dont say a thing” its relating to all the emotions a person shows towards someone that they are in love with and care about a lot. So to show you love someone you dont have to say anything and in Hugh Grants case in the film that probably would have been the best idea haha. He always seemed to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
6. Time of My Life– Jennifer Warnes & Bill Medley (Dirty Dancing)
“Now I’ve had the time of my life, never felt like this before, I swear its the truth and I owe it all to you . . .” I think that opening line to this song, describes how baby feels towards Johnny throughout the whole film. He taught her so much in such a short period of the time and they fell for each other so much. So I think this song perfectly fits the movie, and especially the ending. Showing everyone that they had the time of their lives. “This could be love . . .”
As I have nothing better to do. I thought I would post some movie quotes which are romantic, about love or just lovely.
“Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.” (Good Will Hunting)
