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!
Catch them while you can! These are the films that are leaving Sky Movies this month!
Tuesday 3 May
Elizabethtown – Drama & Romance

“Me? I’m Scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw. I’m scared of what I did, of who I am and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”
I have decided to start a new type of blog post on here, using a film quote that comes close to how I am feeling I am going to vent my thoughts and probably stress (and massive overthinking) in an attempt to get rid of it all to be honest. I am not going to set how often these blogs will be but I guess that just depends what exactly is going on in my life. Although I don’t really have a massive amount of a life at the moment, so much work and no time for much else. That is one of the reasons I love going to the cinema, that is my switch off and relaxing time (well maybe not always relaxing if I pick an awful film). This will be extremely film related though so don’t worry!
Having had a very tough few months and the past week with not a massive amount of sleep, I think it does play with your mind and makes it more difficult to see things rationally. That who paranoid state seems to creep in and you doubt well pretty much anything and everything. I think the above exchange between Portman and Kutcher is a great way to start, what a feeling right?
Today is World Book Day so thought I would combine books to the big screen and list 7 books I read before watching the film. I used to read quite a bit when I had to commute to work on public transport, but when your travel to work is driving yourself in a car it makes it a lot harder to read. But I have managed to read a few books before the film was even thought about or before it was released.
I haven’t put this classic in the list but I did read it before the film as it was a book we read at school. So I guess somethings are very good at school, a classic book and a classic film all in English lessons!
Well with it being Valentine’s day and Fifty Shades of Grey weekend, I thought what better post for today? Picking 7 of my favourite sex scenes from films, some of my choices are probably very obvious others may not be! This is probably a strange list to put together, but I must mention that I mainly like the less is more option in films, I am sure some of my choices will prove that especially when you get to my all time favourite at the end!!!
An old man is reading a story to an old woman, a love story of two young people Noah and Allie. They meet one summer, fall in love and have the best of times. But everything is torn apart when their social standings make a massive difference in them being together.
Ok so I have slightly caved and decided to admit for at least this blog post that I am a romantic at heart . . . by making a list of love movie quotes that I would love a man to say to me! But I had decided not to place them in a 1-10 order, as they are all in the list for the same reason of thinking that it would be just lovely for a man to say them to me. Yes some are very cheesy! But I guess I do have to conform at some point for some Valentine’s Day slushiness!!!
“You complete me” (Jerry Maguire, 1996)
Who wouldn’t want a man to inform them that you complete them . . . not something that they are going to tell you ever day. As corny as this is, I still love it!
This is the start of my count down of the 50 best films of the decade . . .
