    Well, it's about that time of year again... after all the flowers and candy and dinner and maybe a walk, what's a good gushy lovey dovey film that I can peer to every couple of minutes while I am heavily making out on Saturday night? [​IMG] :b

    I'm sure someone else on this forum has a girlfriend, right? [​IMG]

    By the time we’re done with the champagne, caviar, a fine meal, and chocolates, it’s time to check out the lingerie, not to watch a movie.

    howabout once were warriors?

    never having seen it, that's exactly what a buddy of mine rented on a first date once, a long time ago.

    Actually, it would probably be time to hop on the Stairmaster after all that food! [​IMG]

    I'm sure my GF would love it -- too bad we already have tickets for two films Saturday night: K. Kurusawa's Bright Future and the new Andre Techine movie. I'll doubtless make some smoked salmon sandwiches to eat between features. Look, it was the only shows for both films -- no choice...

    If our relationship survives this kind of Valentines Day, I know I've got a film goddess on my hands [​IMG]

    Anyway, if it wasn't for the cruel scheduling of my local film festivals, I'd be following Lew's advice...

    P.S. Funniest V. Day film experience -- from a year when I was single: going to see Nick Broomfield's Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam. The audience, a very mixed crowd, was totally loving watching the ultimate in anti-romance.

    Since I will bitterly be on my own this Valentines, I plan on watching horror movies where sex loving teens are dispatched in gruesome and horrible ways. Basically it's the entire Friday the 13th series for me.

    From Here To Eternity -just watched it last night-still as wonderful as ever...plenty for guys to appreciate in there too as it takes place in the days leading up to Pearl Harbour

    Happy Accidents-
    just got a price drop from MGM (about $10 now). great movie

    Ghost & Mrs Muir- a classic for a good reason

    All That Heaven Allows - Doug Sirk technicolor weeper skirting kitsch (and probably crossing that line for many- still a fun movie though)

    shame we still don't have
    Love With The Proper Stranger
    Foul Play
    and others on disc

    A nice fella asks a serious question and gets a bunch of joke answers by oh-so-clever and original people. Once Were Warriors?? Domestic violence, rape and suicide are SO romantic! (Good movie though). Uh, you're not clever guys.

    My husband and I are going out to see Swordsman II (at a Brigitte Lin retrospective at the Gene Siskel Film Center) but if we were home, we'd probably be watching Moulin Rouge and/or our laserdisc of One From The Heart (not the newly-released DVD, which has a horribly chopped-up version of the film). Another important favorite is Punch-Drunk Love.

    Speaking of Brigitte Lin, The Bride With White Hair (which we just saw last night) is a helluva romance (with, yes, lots of chopping of limbs and spurting blood, but still...), and the "modern-day" Dream Lover is very good too.

    We both love the dark or odd love stories of Blade Runner, Brazil, and Bliss (not on DVD, unfortunately). We adore the bit more conventional love stories of Amélie, Roxanne, Splash, Say Anything, The Princess Bride, and Romancing The Stone.

    If they ever release a special edition of Titanic, we'd buy and maybe watch that (we don't own the current DVD).

    High on any list should be Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet.

    A few more that come to mind (in no particular order):

    Sweet Dreams
    The Stunt Man
    Starman
    Wuthering Heights
    Witness
    The Way We Were
    Tootsie
    Return To Me
    Mad Dog and Glory
    The African Queen
    Gone With The Wind
    Flirting
    Casablanca
    Circle of Friends
    The Crow
    Always
    About Last Night
    As Good As It Gets
    The Big Easy
    Beautiful Girls
    Four Weddings And A Funeral
    Honeymoon In Vegas
    An Officer And A Gentleman
    What Dreams May Come
    Family Man
    Notting Hill

    Wow, it's nice to see someone else is pining for those two on DVD!

    DVD - We were thinking about CASABLANCA, but then there is I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING, also in our library.
