Valentine's Day can either be the most swoon-worthy event in the calendar year for loved-up couples, or a Hallmark-card disaster for the broken hearted.

Whether you'll be heading on a candelit-dinner date with roses or cuddling up with your pet on the couch, we can all use a little romantic-comedy movie magic.

We've created a list of our film favourites for the loveliest day of the year…enjoy ladies.

1. Set It Up

Harper and Charlie, played by Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell, are plagued by cruel and hugely demanding bosses, until they decide to join forces and essentially trick them into falling in love with each other.

The biggest project of their young careers ensues, as their bosses will only fall for each other around their tight schedules, but will Harper and Charlie make a connection too?

Lucy Liu steals scenes as Kristen, Harper's insanely scary sports reporter boss. This movie is one of our favourite rom-coms ever, it somehow banishes clichés while remaining lovable at the same time.

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before

The massively popular film is based on Jenny Han's trilogy, The Summer I Turned Pretty, and the Netflix movie caused quite the stir since its release.

Starring the adorable Lana Condor and Noah Centineo as teenagers who pretend to date in order to solve one young girl's letter-related disaster, you'll fall in love with this feature.

Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the five love letters written privately to every boy she’s ever loved are mysteriously mailed out, despite the fact that they were hidden in her bedroom…

3. La La Land

Who could forget this stunning movie from Academy Award-nominee Damien Chazelle.

La La Land tells the breathtakingly beautiful story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggle to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts.

The unique musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams; Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are unbelievable in their acting prowess and chemistry in this tale of love in LA.

4. Valentine's Day (of course)

Yet another American rom-com from veteran film-maker Gary Marshall; Valentine's Day shows a series of interconnected stories of L.A. residents (celebrities) who go through the highs and lows of love on Valentine's Day.

From first dates, long-time marriages, old flames and new crushes, the stories will melt your heart like Ben & Jerrys on the couch.

The all-star cast consists of Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Kathy Bates, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, Anne Hathaway, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, and even Taylor Swift in her acting debut.

5. The Notebook

The Nicholas Sparks classic that has everyone reaching for the tissues, and which launched Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams from obscurity to stardom.

The pair also fell in love in real life while filming, so it's even more special.

Based in 1940s South Carolina, mill worker Noah falls for rich girl Allie but her parents force them apart. Noah leaves to serve in the second World War, and Allie finds love elsewhere. When Noah returns to their small town, their romance is far from over.

6. Crazy, Stupid, Love

Ryan Gosling just can't escape this round-up list, can he?

The hilarious and heart-warming film follows Cal, played by Steve Carell, as he undergoes a divorce from his wife Emily, played by Julianne Moore. Cal is still desperately in love with Emily, and his life is unravelling until he discovers Emily's infidelity.

Single at the age of 40, he finds Jacob (The charming Ryan Gosling), a handsome and youthful seducer who teaches Cal how to flirt with women again. Jacob is a bachelor of sorts, until his consistent co-star Emma Stone comes into the forefront. The pair really do sizzle on-screen together, but maybe it's just Ryan Gosling and anyone?

7. The Fault In Our Stars

Based on the critically-acclaimed YA book by John Green, the film follows Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley), a young teenager diagnosed with cancer.

The 16-year-old meets and falls in love with Gus Waters, played by Ansel Elgort, after meeting him in a cancer support group.

Gus uses his invitation to meet Hazel's favourite author, Peter Van Houten, and brings her to Amsterdam to meet the recluse. Their love story becomes entangles by health problems, with often tragic circumstances. This one's a certified tear-jerker.

8. About Time

With an Irish star, what's not to love?

Domhnall Gleeson stars as Tim, who discovers the family secret at 21-years-old; the men in their family can time-travel.

Tim resolves to change his life by getting himself a girlfriend, Mary. Rachel McAdams plays his love interest, who falls in love with him after time-travel ensues. 

As life goes on, Tim figures out that his special ability can't save himself or those he loves from ordinary and mundane human problems.

9. P.S I Love You

The movie that led to Gerard Butler apologising for the butchering of an Irish accent; Hillary Swank plays his co-star and widow, who finds a series of messages that serve to guide her new life.

Starting on her thirtieth birthday, Holly Kennedy receives the first in a series of letters written by her late husband, designed to ease her grief and encourage her to move forward after his tragic death.

Parts of it are filmed in Ireland, with stunning scenery and endless romance from Cecelia Ahern's novel.

10. The Holiday

Normally watched at Christmas, The Holiday also serves as a perfect flick to watch on the most romantic day of the year.

It's got Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet swapping houses, it's got Los Angeles and English countryside scenery, sunshine and snow, Jack Black and Jude Law; basically everything.

Depressed and suffering from unrequited love, Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky-in-love Californian Amanda for a break. Of course, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads and sparks fly. Utterly romantic…

11. Love, Rosie

We can't curate a list of love-themed films without including Love, Rosie.

Best pals Rosie and Alex have known each other decades, but are suddenly separated when Alex moves to America to pursue a dream.

Can their friendship survive the distance, as well as each of their own personal turbulent love stories? Tune in to see Sam Claflin and Lily Collins light up the screen.

12. Maid in Manhattan

Jennifer Lopez at her best.

The classic New York City-based flick follows a mother-of-one, Marisa Ventura, who lives in the boroughs and works as a maid in a top Manhattan hotel.

A twist of fate leads to her identity being mistaken for that of a wealthy socialite, and she meets Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), the heir to a political dynasty.

He has no idea who she really is, but the pair fall deeply in love. When her identity is revealed, their worlds couldn't be further apart. Will their love withstand?

We're in LOVE with this list, maybe we'll skip that date and just binge-watch all 11 of these in a row?

All we need is chocolate, candles and a fluffy pet to keep us warm for the perfect movie night.

Happy Valentine's Day gals, don't forget to treat yourselves.

  1. The Knight Before Christmas

Vanessa Hudgens has become the queen of cheesy Christmas movies. This adorable rom-com follows the story of a science teacher who falls for a 14th Century knight, who is somehow teleported to modern-day Ohio. Extremely far-fetched but we just can’t get enough of it.

  1. Christmas Wedding Planner

We first heard about the ‘Excuse Me I Love You’ documentary on December 9th, when Ariana reposted a post on Instagram from Netflix, simply entitled ‘excuse me, I love you’.

Fans immediately jumped on the post, speculating what it meant, many guessing a new tour was being scheduled or that it was the Sweetener tour coming to the streaming platform.

Ariana teased fans with more posts throughout the day of action shots of the Sweetener tour before finally confirming suspicions later on that day with another post excitedly describing the Sweetener film documentary. She told fans it was coming to Netflix on December 21st, ‘a year after closing, the sweetener world tour is coming home to u’.

She shared how releasing the film was like sending a 'love letter to u all, in celebration of all that we’ve shared over the past few years. i know this project only captures some of one tour (out of all the other hundreds of shows and moments we have shared over the past six or seven years… jesus lol) but i just wanted to thank u all for showing me more in this lifetime already than i ever dreamed of.’ [sic]

In the emotional post the singer thanked fans for allowing her dreams to come true, saying that ‘making music and doing all of this has been all i’ve known or fully given myself to consistently for a very long time now. although my heart is looking forward to a change of pace, i wanted to express again just how eternally thankful i am.’ [sic]

The film seems to be a marker in Grande’s life, allowing her to take stock and a moment to thank those who have been with her on the journey to the top. The film documents a triumphant point in Grande’s career, with the Sweetener tour amassing 1.3 million attendees and 97 shows, running for 9 months,

‘i’ve learned, seen and felt so much. it’s been such an honor to share so much of this life with u. “excuse me, i love you” dec 21.’ [sic]

The documentary dropped on Netflix this morning and promises to be a spectacle of massive proportions as well as giving insight into the struggles the singer faced behind the scenes when the fans went home and the lights turned out. Showing every aspect of the tour from rehearsals to exclusive backstage footage, we follow Ariana on every step of the tour, the highs and the lows.

We can’t wait to grab the popcorn and settle in to being it this evening!

It’s been ten days since The Duchess aired on Netflix and it’s been a sensation, to say the least…

For those living under a rock, The Duchess is a glittering new comedy series directed by Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan, who also happens to play the lead. Loosely based on Ryan’s real life, this story of a single mum who will do whatever it takes to have another baby is hilarious, emotional and simply stunning to behold. The costumes and set stand out a million miles, leaving viewers lost in the dreamy world that exists within the main character’s wardrobe.

The Wardrobe

It is time to pay homage to the true star of this insane new comedy: Katherine Ryan’s stylist. Even if laughing for 120 minutes straight does not appeal to you, The Duchess is worth watching solely to indulge in the perfection of Ryan’s boujee outfits.

From arguing with her daughter in the schoolyard dressed as a literal princess…

To exhibiting a new headband emboldened with gemstones in every scene… 

…the gorgeous garb in this show will have you pretty much hooked from 5 seconds in. You will find yourself rewinding to catch jokes you missed out on because you were too busy drooling over the salmon-pink boiler suit Katherine wears while working as a potter. You will envision yourself in years to come, wearing sequins on the school run and showing up at your ex’s wedding looking like a Disney princess…

and don't forget this absolute gem of a jumper that appears in the very first scene – also worn on the school run…

One thing’s for sure; we have never seen anything like the sheer number of stunning ensembles worn by Ryan – a wardrobe that even Blair Waldorf herself would envy. This, however, makes total sense, because it turns out the show’s stylist Jennifer Michalski-Bra also worked on Gossip GirlThe Duchess portrays a whole new set of gowns, jumpsuits and brightly coloured mesh blouses to obsess over. Lord knows we need it these days since the opportunities to dress up have become few and far between. 

The Decor

Honestly, this show is a literal treasure trove for those who enjoy the finer things in life. If like us, walking into a refurbished Georgian home gives you goosebumps or a palette of dusty pinks and soft greys makes you dizzy, it's time to watch and re-watch The Duchess. Not that we have any idea how a potter in her early 30s can afford this lush north-London townhouse, but we will not argue with perfection. It is a palace for the modern woman.

Katherine's pottery studio is located in what appears to be a conservatory-like extension on the back of the house. With large glass framing the room, the afternoon sun beams down on to her stylish white workspaces. Her kitchen is that of a typical vintage remodelling with an Island of marble and her cosy sitting room hosts mustard yellows and even more soft pinks.

All in all, this show has surpassed all expectations fashion-wise and we cannot wait for a second season. You can watch The Duchess on Netflix now.

Now that the Summer is drawing to a close and the evenings are getting slightly shorter, it’s time to bring on the movie-nights! Netflix UK & Ireland revealed which movies are being added to the streaming service next month, and it’s quite a list.

Horror fans will be pleased to know that a number of scary flicks are being added in anticipation of the upcoming spooky season. 2018’s Halloween, along with Freddy vs Jason, Slaughterhouse Rulez and The Babysitter: Killer Queen are among some of the films people can enjoy come September.

If you’re looking for more of a family-friendly, movie-night vibe, then make sure to check out all three of the Johnny English films. If you want to feel nostalgic, then sit back and enjoy Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, or opt for the newer adaptation featuring Johnny Depp, which will also be available — just make sure to have plenty of sweets and chocolate at hand first!

Some of the new releases include Enola Holmes, starring Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin. Millie plays the rebellious younger sister to Sherlock Holmes, who disguises herself as a boy in an attempt to find her mother after she goes missing.

The Devil All The Time is another new film being added to Netflix next month, featuring another star-studded cast, including Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson.

Deadpool and Zoolander are the way to go if you’re looking for a good action-comedy. However if you’re craving an emotional drama, then make sure to check out First Man starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy, which tells the story about how Neil Armstrong and his team made the first moon landing.

Netflix has assured us that this isn’t their full list, and as always there will be plenty more films and series to be added to the streaming service next month.

Netflix just dropped the trailer for their new series, The Duchess, and we’re absolutely obsessed. This hilarious new show will be coming to the streaming service on September 11.

Canadian comedian, Katherine Ryan, will Executive Produce, write and star in her debut scripted series. The Duchess explores the unique world view of a fashionably disruptive all-round bad person whose redeeming quality is that she’ll sacrifice everything to be a good parent.

While The Duchess is classified as a comedy, Katherine's character does a fantastic job at illustrating the challenging reality of life as a single mother. 

Nearly a decade ago, Katherine got pregnant by Irish boy-band pop star, Shep Knight, played by Dublin native Rory Keenan. ‘The last guy to get up off the stool’. He would soon become her greatest enemy, but they now keep a lid on their mutual disdain for one another for the sake of their exquisite daughter, Olive.

Olive is the love of Katherine’s life. Now in a position to grow her family, Katherine debates whether it makes more sense to have a baby with her very devoted new boyfriend, go it alone, or double-down on her first mistake and have another child with her nemesis, Shep.

Katherine’s strength of character and singular perspective challenges everyone around her and the audience in a fantastically entertaining way — it is unapologetic and confrontational — and she manages to be sympathetic and vulnerable in her own trademark way.

The trailer for Hilary Swank’s harrowing new series, Away, just dropped and we’re in absolute awe. The emotional drama series is due to be released on Netflix on September 4.

From Executive Producer Jason Katims, the visionary who brought us Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, comes a thrilling new story which celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.

As American astronaut Emma Green, played by two-time academy-award-winner Hilary Swank,  prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband and teenage daughter when they need her the most. As the crew's journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. 

Hilary plays the leading lady of the show, Emma Green, who is an American astronaut, former Navy pilot and the commander of the first mission to Mars. Her husband, Matt Logan, played by Josh Charles, is a NASA engineer, facing the already enormous challenges of dealing with the mission from home, while trying to raise their 15-year-old daughter on his own.

The rest of the mission-crew consist of Misha Popov, Russian cosmonaut and engineer, Dr. Kwesi Weisberg – Abban, world-renowned botanist who carries with him the hope of growing life on Mars, Ram Arya, an Air Force fighter pilot from India, Lu Wang, a chemist and astronaut representing China and Melissa Ramirez, a former astronaut who is Emma’s Liaison To Earth.

We all need a happiness booster more than ever right now and Netflix has answered our prayers with the new series Sweet Magnolias.

Fans of Gilmore Girls are bound to love this charming, feel-good series. Sweet Magnolias follows three South Carolina women, best friends since childhood, as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the charming small town of Serenity.

Sweet Magnolias stars Joanna Garcia Swisher as Maddie, Heather Headley as Helen and Brooke Elliot as Dana Sue.

Jamie Lynn Spears stars as Noreen, American Pie’s Chris Klein stars as Bill Townsend and Grey’s Anatomy actor Justin Bruening as Cal Maddox.

The Netflix show is based on the books by American writer Sherryl Woods.

I binge-watched all ten episodes of the series in one day and it was everything I needed during these dull and overwhelming days. It is such an easy show to watch and you get completely wrapped up in the small town charm, the everyday drama and the complex relationships. It helps you switch off from the world we're living in right now and I think we could all benefit from doing that at the moment.

Sweet Magnolias is the ultimate source of comfort we need during the lockdown. All ten episodes are available on Netflix now.

Netflix has yet to renew the show for a second season, but given the overwhelmingly positive response, there’s no doubt that Sweet Magnolias will be back for a second instalment.

It seems like everyone watched the second season of You over the Christmas break. I binge-watched all ten episodes in the space of two days and still can’t get over that cliffhanger.

The second season of the Netflix drama was as gripping as ever. It was undoubtedly better than the first season, mainly due to the number of twists.

Joe begins a new chapter of his life in LA but the serial killer doesn’t stay there for long.

At the end of season two, Joe and his new beau Love have moved to a gorgeous home in Mexico. Love is expecting their first child, and she’s just as evil as Joe, so you’d think he’d settle down and be happy.

He’s finally met his match, but alas he’s got another victim in mind.

At the end of episode ten, Joe is seen spying on his neighbour, but viewers don’t think she’s another love interest.

As the season comes to a close, Joe says, “There you were with your books and your sunshine, so close but worlds away. I will figure out a way. A way to get to you. See you soon, neighbour.”

The woman is notably older than Joe and considering the number of flashbacks to his childhood in season two, viewers think the woman is actually Joe’s mum.

Many viewers believe he wants to get revenge after his mum sent him away when he was a child. Others think she started a new family in Mexico.

Who knows what will happen in season three of You. Season two was full of twists and turns so all I’ll say is expect the unexpected.
