Top Ten Valentines Day Movies
1. The Princess Bride: Who doesn’t love this movie? It reminds us all of being five when we actually thought this sort of stuff could actually happen
2. Amelie: Adorable and oh so French; plus, comes with subtitles for the bilingually challenged.
3. The Graduate: A classic. It’s the age-old conundrum of falling in love with the daughter while dating the mom. Don’t we all wish we could float on inflatable mattresses and listen to Simon and Garfunkle all summer long.
4. Brokeback Mountain: For that gorgeous scenery, and those two gorgeous male stars.
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: Highly original and romantic without being predictable.
6. Garden State: Sweet without losing sight of reality
7. The Wedding Singer: Cute, funny, and not too cheesy; it comes with the added bonus of Adam Sandler and eighties attire to laugh at.
8. My Big Fat Greek Wedding: As a reminder of the fun family that sometimes comes with a relationship
9. Lost in Translation: Just because they don’t wind up together in the end doesn’t mean it’s not a great movie.
10. Bridget Jones’s Diary: Before finding Mr. Right, Bridget shows us just how funny being single can be (and the book is even better).
Top Ten Anti-Valentine’s Day Movies
1. My Bloody Valentine: An eighties slasher flick that, unfortunately does not end happily ever.
2. The Bride of Frankenstein: As a reminder of why not to settle.
3. Snakes on a Plane: Just because it has nothing to do with loving feelings what so ever.
4. Fight Club
5. The Breakup: Unromantic and bad.
6. Silence of the Lambs
7. Edward Scissorhands: Poor, poor unloved Edward.
8. The War of the Roses: A joys of divorce (and Danny Devito too).
9. Closer: They may be beautiful, but all the characters end up miserable in the end.
10. Romeo and Juliet: Often this one’s placed in the former category but I think that this is quite the mistake. Let’s remember that everyone dies in the end. The lesson: Love Kills.
