10 perfect movies to watch for Valentine’s Day


Now, we know many of you will be flocking to the cinema to see Fifty Shades of Grey this Valentine’s Day – however, we have movies for those who aren’t into that kind of thing too. 

These movies are classics; both modern and old and are good enough to watch alone and not feel lonely. 

You don't have to have a Valentine to appreciate the day of love y'know! After all, as long as hot water bottles exists, who REALLY needs a fella? 

Romeo + Juliet
Baz Luhrmann's take on Romeo + Juliet will go down in history as one of the greats. Making it modern and with a serious soundtrack, you'll find yourself wondering why Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio didn't end up together in real life…

10 Thing I Hate About You
Any excuse to see Heath Ledger's performance as Patrick is fine by us! This movie is based (loosely of course!) on The Taming Of The Shrew and all of the characters are so well thought out. Not to mention the epic love story between Kat and Patrick. 

Such a romantic classic – if you haven't seen this yet then you NEED to get on it. Made in 1942 and starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart, the movie is responsible for classic quotes such as "We'll always have Paris" and "Here's lookin' at you, kid". Oh the heartbreak!

The Notebook
Oh come on, how could we leave it out?! Allie and Noah's love story started in a book by Nicholas Sparks before being immortalised on screen by Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. Since then the movie has become a staple romantic film and we reckon it could be a classic in years to come. 

Pretty Woman
Richard Gere and Julia Roberts were the face of early Nineties romance after this movie's release in 1990. That fire escape scene though…

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen's classic novel was taken to screens countless times; in a mini series with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and again in a 2005 movie with Matthew McFayden and Keira Knightley in the title roles. Mr. Darcy will always be the ultimate heartthrob and Elizabeth Bennett the heroine. 

Jack and Rose, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet respectively, are the star-crossed lovers of the "unsinkable" ship. All we'll say on this one is: she could have moved over. 

An Affair to Remember
Often old movies don't appeal to our generation, however with An Affair to Remember, prepare to feel as if Cary Grant is personally breaking your heart…

The Fault In Our Stars
A movie adapted from the book by John Green of the same name; Hazel and Augustus Waters' love story in the face of unthinkable heartbreak will reduce you to tears pretty quickly. 

When Harry Met Sally
Does it get any more classical than the modern love between Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal? No, it doesn't! The best line? "I'll have what she's having."
