Hello my dear cinephiles,

Hope you are feeling good. Previous year was a tough one, still we should search for bright sides and keep living despite all troubles and barriers, which we face every day.

You might saw the changes that my website went through recently. I decided to rebuilt it a bit, so this place will be more responsive and user-friendly (both suitable for laptops and smartphones screens). No worries, all content is on, and a new one appeared as well.

However, in this new article, which somehow dedicated to the upcoming St. Valentine’s Day, I would like to concentrate on love, because… only love will save us, yes? So, here comes a new list of great romantic movies for you to enjoy. But! This time I decided to add links where you can watch them, so it will be super-easy for you to plan your free time watching really cool content (especially while many cinemas remain closed for now). Comment if you like the idea.

As always, I am sharing the movies, which I watched myself many times and are worth your time. For those who don’t know me, I am in love with cinematography and I am advising movies basically from my heart. So, here everyone will find something interesting: either you are single, friends, married, being a couple, friends with benefits, hookups… or just want to see love on the screen. Feel free to add more movies in your comments.

Have a great movie time and enjoy the St. Valentine’s Day!

15. Gone with the Wind (1939)

For strong-willed

Epic Civil War drama focuses on the life of petulant Southern belle Scarlett O’Hara. Starting with her idyllic life on a sprawling plantation, the film traces her survival through the tragic history of the South during the Civil War and Reconstruction, and her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes and Rhett Butler.

You know, it’s really upsetting me that recently that movie was banned. Actors and directors put so much talent and time to create a masterpiece, and in 21st century this movie has been deleted from some movie streamers. Why? It’s historically accurate, I mean the War, such things happened and you can’t just erase it. We should remember and learn from it. This is the incredible movie as well as the book. My advice number one to watch.

16. Lost in Translation (2003)

For singles in a big city

Two strangers (Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray) form an unlikely bond after meeting in a hotel bar in Tokyo. Basically, it’s a moving (and at times, laugh-out-loud funny) film about finding a connection with someone when you’re least expecting it. I literally adore the movie. Recently watched it again. If you are feeling alone in a big city, or you just have a melancholic mood, Lost in Translation is a perfect choice for you.

66. In the Mood for Love (2000)

For those who search for a beautiful sexual tension

Set in 1960s Hong Kong, this beautifully-shot film tells the story of two neighbors (played by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung) whose spouses are having an affair. As they confront this betrayal, the two begin to spend more time together and eventually develop feelings for each other.

67. Dirty Dancing (1987)

What can I say? For “dirty” dancers with passion and love

When Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman (Jennifer Gray) spends the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, she falls in love with the camp’s bad boy dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). It’s a classic among classic stories, which you’ll watch again and again.

68. Fifty Shades of Grey 1-3

For the sex addicted

I know these movies might not be here. However, I thought that a bit of “crazy” passion and sex addiction is needed for this romantic list (no criticism, we all have different needs). Especially, taking under consideration that all 3 movies were streamed in the cinemas right on the St. Valentine’s Day. Let’s be fair, I didn’t include here the 365 Days, no way for this movie to be mentioned in my lists.

For those who didn’t watch yet, the plot is about a college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper. Christian finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Hear begins the story of them being together. However, Ana learns that Christian’s true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.

Where to watch: YouTube, Google Play, Netflix (might be not available for all countries)

69. Wall-e (2008)

For those who still have faith in humanity, love, friendship and that everything will be fine

The overall ninth feature film produced by the company, Wall-e follows a solitary robot on a future, uninhabitable, deserted Earth, left to clean up garbage. However, he is visited by a probe sent by the starship Axiom, a robot called EVE, with whom he falls in love and pursues across the galaxy.

What’s really interesting, this movie criticizes consumerism, corporatocracy, nostalgia, waste management, human environmental impact and concerns, obesity, and global catastrophic risk. It shows what can happen with our planet if we won’t take care of it. Wall-e won the 2008 Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film, the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Long Form Dramatic Presentation, the final Nebula Award for Best Script, the Saturn Award for Best Animated Film and the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature with five nominations. Additionally, the film topped Time’s list of the “Best Movies of the Decade”. And it’s true. It may even be the best what we have seen so far.

70. Titanic (1997)

For those whose hearts will go on

Last but not least, definitely not least. I think we all saw this movie, but we still want to stream it again and again. The plot is about seventeen-year-old Rose (Kate Winslet), who hails from an aristocratic family and is set to be married. When she boards the Titanic, she meets Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), an artist, and falls in love with him. However, if we could wish for a happy end, we know what happens during the catastrophic voyage of the luxury liner Titanic. Still, hearts will go on forever, yes?

Where to watch: Amazon, Netflix (might be not available for all countries), Hulu
