Okay, this one’s for the romanticists. Action may lose out on stimulation, a comedy may seem more like a tragedy, and you may even recognize the serial killer half way through a thriller but you’ll never feel anything other than being on the moon if it’s a romantic flick. There’s a reason why someone like James Cameron spent millions of dollars in making Titanic that ended up gathering billions from around the world and made him titan of a director. And that reason is the feeling of love that never sinks down to the bottom even after being in so many tempests, while going through so many voyages. Love always triumphs! It’s the characters in the romantic flicks through which the audience relives its moments of love and romance, while holding the hand of the one they love. These are the moments that hold their senses long after when they first happened. And that’s precisely why romantic movies continue to fare well at the box office and are talked about for years to come. So here’s a collection of some good romantic movies for you to watch with your partner. Go live the magic!
Good Romantic Movies
The highest box office collector of its time, Titanic, when released had the whole world reaching for the tissues in the end, when Rose had let off Jack. More than a decade has passed and people still can’t get over how romantic the film was. It is the top pick when it comes to the favorites among romantic movies.
When Harry Met Sally
When Harry Met Sally is considered a benchmark when it comes to the romantic comedy genre. The question of whether a man and a woman can be friends without sex ruining the friendship has been comically raised by many movies but none comes close to this one when it comes to portrayal of it.
Released way back in 1942, it had the critics and audience mesmerized by the story of man torn between love and virtue while trying to help the woman he loves and her husband escape from the Vichy controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca. Even after 6 decades, it’s amongst the most loved romantic movies.
Don’t discard it just because it’s an animated flick. It follows the antics of a robot named Wall E that falls in love with another robot named EVE from another planet and follows her to outer space just out of love. The level of quiet romanticism this movie achieved makes much of the overrated stuff out there look like junk.
Sleepless In Seattle
Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Sleepless in Seattle tells the story of a man who lost his wife to cancer, and how is he persuaded by his son to go on a radio show and share how much he misses his wife. The climax scene of Tom and Meg meeting up on the Empire State Building is considered a classic.
Based on a novel of the same name written by Nicholas Sparks, the notebook follows the story of an old woman admitted in hospital suffering from dementia while her husband reads to her daily, the story of their life. Although it didn’t fare well at the box office but those who’ve seen it, swear by it as unadulterated romantic flick.
