Find out how to make your late-night date meaningful
Movie dates are great not only because you can have a relaxing night together but because they help test your compatibility as well. Find out what 25 glorious films you should definitely see with your significant other!
1. When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Romcoms seem to be a too obvious choice for a romantic evening but this one is truly iconic. Just see how a relationship between two different people goes through many stages before they finally realise they were made for each other.
2. 50 First Dates (2004)
Too cheesy? No, I don’t think so. Though I’ve never been a huge fan of Drew Barrymore or Adam Sandler, their performances here are just great. The story itself is light and full of good humour, after all.
3. Casablanca (1942)
For those who’d like to have a really special evening, this is surely a must-see picture. Sophisticated black-and-white filming, the touching story, and all other stuff we love classical Hollywood for.
4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Another film that tries to define the nature of love yet the way Michel Gondry tells the story will take your breath away – that’s how one of my friends described her feelings about it.
5. La La Land (2016)
Because it is merely awesome; no wonder they grabbed so many awards. What I personally like about La La Land most of all is that there’s no traditional happy end, which makes the story romantic yet realistic.
6. Annie Hall (1992)
I absolutely love Woody Allen’s masterpieces so here is one of them. No, this is not only my subjective opinion!
7. Jurassic Park (1993)
Dinosaurs are awesome, don’t you think so? Maybe, this is not the most romantic movie of all times but you will definitely have fun.
8. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
It would be a true crime to not include any of Tim Burton’s films in this list so here we are.
9. Hitch (2005)
Not that the story was too enlightening but your pick up skills can get better if you see it.
10. Secretary (2002)
Indeed, there were films raising the topics of BDSM and forbidden love way before Fifty Shades of Grey. And, strictly speaking, this one is way better. By the way, there is Mr Grey too.
11. Ghost (1990)
Can we ever get bored with love stories? This one is both sad and incredibly touching.
12. Friends with Benefits (2011)
Where is the line between friendship and love? Seems like this movie partially gives the answer.
13. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
The recipe of a perfect movie can be simple: a little bit of sex, a little of action, and a few family issues. And yeah, this is what Brangelina started with.
14. Interview with the Vampire (1994)
If there is a story about vampires anyone should see, you’ve got it. Just a beautiful story with many subtexts and bright characters. I guess it’s going to be my favourite Tom Cruz’s role ever.
15. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
What is “normal”? Based on the homonymous book, this perfectly written drama tackles rather big issues. The dramatic conflict is pretty interesting and the acting is great (Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper – who else do you need?).
16. The Notebook (2004)
Not sure if this movie is in my top but I guess everyone should see it just to be aware of such a significant story. Or if you are a fan of Ryan Gosling, of course. The photography is stunning, by the way.
17. Her (2013)
AI has always been a hot topic. In particular, humanity is obsessed with the question of relationships between artificial and real beings.
18. You’ve Got Mail (1998)
New York as it is indeed the city where dreams can come true. And it is what exactly happened in this story. Besides, you will see what online dating was like in the 1990s.
19. 9 1/2 weeks (1986)
A movie featuring young Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger, lots of passion, and Joe Cockers’ music. Flawless.
20. Chocolat (2000)
Although it is rather a film for girls, it is still very good. You know, to watch it is like to taste many different sorts of chocolate, bitter, sweet, spicy, or even salt.
21. Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961)
This film is worth watching at least because of Audrey Hepburn who played her most famous role here. The plot may not be that outstanding nowadays but it is nevertheless one of the notable pictures of the 1960s.
22. Amelie (2001)
If you love France and especially its capital, this film gives a perfect opportunity to get some Paris air. The story is not just about two weirdoes searching for love but about the prose of life as well.
23. Titanic (1997)
I hugely doubt there are people who’ve never seen Titanic (unless you were born in the 2010s) so this masterpiece barely needs an introduction. But does it become less amazing with time?
24. The Naked Gun (1988-1994)
One of the best comic franchises of all times featuring brilliant Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley in her best years. No need to write long reviews, just sit down on your sofa and watch all three movies.
25. Child’s Play (1988)
Yes, I mean exactly what I say. The 1988 slasher movie actually kicked all the whole franchise that is also worth your attention. There are scary moments, there are funny moments, and Chucky is just my love!
