9 of the Most Romantic Movies ...


Before I get started, I have to say that my idea of a really romantic movie is different from most people's definitions, mainly because I consider romantic comedies to be a little different than flat out romantic movies.

I also have to cop to it and say a lot of classic romances aren't in here, but that's because I'm greedy and I'm using them somewhere else, so never fear!

Hopefully, though, you'll like my opinion of 9 of the most romantic movies I've ever seen.

1. Titanic


Price: $33.33 at amazon.com

I actually avoided seeing this movie when it initially came out, because it saturated everything.

It was only a few years ago that I actually sat down and watched it … and figured out what all the fuss was about.

It's decadent and dramatic and tragic, everything a good love story should be.

Plus I adore Kate Winslet, and man but Leo was so pretty back in the day.2

2. Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

Price: $22.49 at amazon.com

I've loved this movie since I was a little girl.

My parents had it on VHS, and the soundtrack on vinyl.

I watched it whenever I was bored, or wanted to moon about the latest boy I was crushing on, imagining myself as Baby and the crush du jour as Patrick Swayze.

I can still watch it over and over – though it always makes me miss Jennifer Grey's nose.

3. Romeo + Juliet

Romeo + Juliet

Price: $12.49 at amazon.com


I love this movie so much.

I saw it on opening night and fell in love with it.

I love the soundtracks, I love the actors, I love the modern twist.

I love the original as well, and as an English major, I once did a project where I compared the two, just as an excuse to watch them again.

It, too, is appropriately decadent and tragic, and Baz is just a genius.
