My personal favourite is the wedding singer. Adam Sandler's best film
'Weekend' the Andrew Haigh film. Soooooooo romantic.
But I've got to give a shout out to the high school musical trilogy because no one loves anyone more than Troy <3s Gabriella!
Brutal, realistic look at love. Still one of my favourite movies, having Bonnie 'Prince' Billy on the OST doesn't hurt either.
Roman Holiday a close second.
I don't know why it gets such a slating. It's amazing and might just have pipped Beverley Hills Chihuahua 2 to the post of my 'favourite film'.
nice shout, too
I actually don't want to watch it right now, because I think I'm in too pessimistic a romantic position to be able to appreciate the melancholic beauty of it
it's a beautiful love story despite all the violence and false imprisonment.
it's kind of a guilty pleasure
aka 'Show Me Love'
One of the best films of the 90s.
didn't show up at first.
on a similar note, and though I've not really seen it enough times to totally embrace it (I get the feeling that it demands re-watches); I think Punch Drunk Love deserves a mention
ALL THE LEAVES ARE BROWN
and the sky is grey
AND THE SKY IS GREY
...but I do love Punch Drunk Love
but one of the aspects that emerges as one of my favourite things about it is how it follows a sort of more cynical view of the whole 'love conquers all' trope; Barry's feelings for Lena inspire him not so much to overcome his rage issues so much as just to give him the confidence to inflict that rage on actual people instead of just inanimate objects.
I think it's a bit more complex than your average romantic film..sometimes it doesn't quite reach what it feels like it's trying to but I almost like it more for that.
and Moonrise Kingdom
on the Wes Anderson front; though these aren't really entirely films I'd consider 'romantic'
Its a romance of our very souls
