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 have just woken up to the sad news that Garry Marshall has passed away so decided as a tribute I would pick my 7 favourite of the films he directed for this blog post. RIP Garry Marshall a man who really changed the Romantic Comedy genre!
Beaches (1988) Review
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!!!
Massive thank you to my friends over at Sony Pictures for the lovely big box of goodies which arrived on my doorstep yesterday morning. So at least I can say that I got something for the dreaded single’s awareness day also known as Valentine’s Day! As you can see from the photo above it certainly had plenty of good things and was linked in with Friends with Benefits!
This film looks like it will be rather heartbreaking but then so romantic at the same time. It looks like the perfect Valentine’s Day film and that’s its scheduled release date for 2012. I do have quite a soft spot for Channing Tatum! But this does look like it could turn out to be a very nice heartwarming film.
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!
Well let’s just say that I pretty much hate Valentine’s Day! So decided to do an anti-Valentine’s day list of films, because lets face it real life isn’t all flowers and chocolates! People get hurt and hearts are broken, so I don’t understand why we should have one day that is supposed to be when we declare our love for someone?!?! If we truly loved them wouldn’t we just randomly buy them gifts and tell them of our love whenever we felt like it?
Anyway check out the following 10 films which have made my list . . . not for the people wanting to see love in a nice way with the happily ever after ending!!!
What are your favorites?
Intertwining couples and singles in Los Angeles break-up and make-up based on the pressures and expectations of Valentine’s Day. Kinda like Love Actually but instead of Christmas and London . . . Valentine’s Day and LA.
Two posters have been released for next years release of Valentine’s Day, I have to admit that I am very much looking forward to this movie because some of my favorite actors/actresses are in this, mainly Julia Roberts :-). But I am also happy to see Taylor Swift in this too, as I am such a big fan of her music.
