I know Valentine's Day happened a couple months ago , but for some reason it's been a long time since I wanted to write a post about this. I also know I've only wrote one article in a year but I've been busy with school and stuff but I also really want to post here more often. For X or Y reason, that wasn't possible but now let's just focus on what this is about; so without further ado, hope you enjoy this new post.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
Ahhh, romance movies! Kisses in the rain. Love promises. Passionate Gestures. This list covers some of the best romantic movie scenes; of course they can be corny but hey, love is also awesome and I'm sure some of them may have brought you (and me) to tears.
Juliet (Keira Knightley) has always thought that her husband's best friend Mark (Andrew Lincoln) hates her because he always acts awkward around her. She's proven wrong when he shows up at the front door carrying a boombox with Christmas songs and cue cards that express his true feelings for her; this is when she realizes how mistaken she was about Mark and she answers with a quick kiss. It's awesome because it's the sweetest depiction of one-sided love that we know of.
'10 Things I Hate About You'
90's nostalgia lies ahead! We should probably consider this scene as the cutest one from a teen movie ever. Based on Shakespeare's 'The Taming of the Shrew', the moment that made our hearts melt was when Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) serenades Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) with "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" while she's playing soccer and a marching band suddenly appears to accompany Verona's voice.
'500 Days of Summer'
When our protagonist Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) finally gets the chance to know Summer (Zooey Deschanel) better, he celebrates it with an AMAZING dance that even random people knew the choreography to. That relationship might have fooled him (and her) but this dance set to Hall & Oates' "You Make My Dreams" could very well be a representation of what we feel when we fall in love with the "chosen one".
'Lost In Translation'
It's not a romantic movie per se, but the unlikely friendship that Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) form while they face their own problems in Tokyo feels genuine and sweet. That moment when Bob whispers into Charlotte's ear, you can really feel the intensity and the strong bond they formed.
'Breakfast at Tiffany's'
This is one of the most romantic movie moments ever. On a rainy night while in a cab, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) and Paul Varjak (George Peppard) are arguing about love; later, she lets her cat out of the cab and Paul confesses his true feelings for her only to get out of the car to look for the cat while Holly has two choices: get to the airport and disappear from Paul's life or cancel the flight and let him enter her life; whilst she decides, she gets out and also looks for the cat. Finally, they find it and forgive each other while they passionately kiss in the rain. This is extremely cheesy, but under the circumstances it happened is what truly makes it a romantic classic.
