Movies: Are you a romanticholic? Love the classics? Try these movies out from my personal favourites list!
I hope you all are enjoying reading my blogs. This time, I want to focus on movies, my life-long passion!
Movies run in my blood and I can do a movie marathon every day if I am allowed. And I am a die-hard fan of the romance and Hollywood classics. After a tiring day at work, you just want to relax, watch a feel good movie and you instantaneously feel better. That’s the true power of movies.
Here I am sharing 10 of my all-time favourite romance movies and hope you will enjoy them as much as I do:
- Kiss the girls: Here is a movie I watched as a teenager that scared me to death of kidnappers. Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman are awesome and Cary Elwes is ruthless. I recommend this movie to people who like some thriller/suspense in their movies.
- Just like heaven: A sweet little movie from the charismatic Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. About funny spirit and falling in love despite everything. Go and watch this one.
- Girl Interrupted: A psychological drama film where Angeline Jolie won her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, with Winona Ryder in the lead and Brittany Murphy in a supporting role. A lot of verbal drama and great performances. It’s a must watch.
- Desperado: Where the gun fights dwell and the lead is Antonio Banderas, you will not be disappointed. Salma Hayek’s entry into Hollywood with this movie adds additional points to this contemporary Western movie.
- Indiana Jones: The best of action movies from the 80s starring Harrison Ford. All the franchise starring him will be a treat for action buffs. From movie locations set in Venice, to Egypt, South East Asia, the series is seriously not to be missed.
- The proposal: How can you not love a Sandra Bullock’s movie, right? She teams up with Ryan Reynolds in this hilarious romance comedy about terrible bosses and submissive sub-ordinates who will do most anything for their bosses. You will enjoy the move from the start to the finish, I tell you.
- Troy: I can watch Troy any given number of times. An epic period war film based during the Trojan War. If you want to see hunks in their greatest splendor, watch this movie for Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Orlando Bloom all in one screen.
- Sound of music: American musical drama film, a major commercial success starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, about a young Austrian woman studying to become a nun in Salzburg in 1938 who is sent to the villa of a retired naval officer and widower to be governess to his seven children. After bringing love and music into the lives of the family through kindness and patience, she marries the officer and together with the children they find a way to survive the loss of their homeland through courage and faith. In 2001, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
- Roman holiday: This black and white print romance film will leave you asking for more. This movie stars one of the most beautiful and talented actresses of all time Audrey Hepburn as Princess Ann, alongside Gregory Peck as Joe Bradley, an expatriate American reporter for the “American News Service” based in Rome. Not to be missed.
- Little women: The movie focuses on March sisters, during and after the American Civil War. With their father away fighting in the war, the girls struggle with major and minor problems under the guidance of their strong-willed mother. As a means of escaping some of their problems, the sisters revel in performing in romantic plays written by Jo in their attic theater.
That’s it! I will have more coming in the next blog, definitely. Until then, enjoy your time because life only happens once after all J
