Valentine’s day is really close, so you must be thinking what to do with your special someone, and sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you think of something really sweet and romantic, the best option always ends up being: Netflix and chill, because it’s casual, you can get comfy, and it’s still just the two of you.
So, if your plan for this valentine’s day is staying home, then we’ve got the perfect movies for you.
Pride and Prejudice (2005)
If you haven’t watched it (or read it); then it’s the perfect opportunity to do it, the classics are classics for a reason.
This 19th century story is about Elizabeth Benneth, a british heir whom, in her quest for a suitable husband, learns the dangers of making snap judgments out of people as she falls in love with the seemingly despot Mr. Darcy. The novel is fast to play with (and mock) the ideas surrounding British Regency, like marrying for money and the attitude toward manners.
One of our favorite quotes is “Perhaps I didn’t always love him as well as I do now, but in cases like these, a good memory is unpardonable”.
Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
This movie is about how the world of Cal Weaver, a middle-aged husband, is turned upside down after he discovers his wife cheating on him and she fills for a divorce, he meets a bachelor at a bar, and starts rediscovering himself.
One of our favorite quotes is “I have loved her even when I hated her… only married couples will understand that one”.
Love and Basketball (2000)
If your boy is not into romantic movies, but is a total nerd for sports (preferably basketball) then this movie is the right choice.
This movie is about Quincy and Monica, two sport junkies who met on the basketball court when they were kids, and dream about becoming professional Basketball players while also developing a love/hate relationship.
The Notebook (2004)
And as we get back to the classics, since it’s the most romantic day of the year, let’s watch one of the most romantic movies ever seen.
The Notebook is about Noah Calhoun, a passionate man who meets Allie Hamilton, an adventurous young woman at a carnival, with whom he falls in love, but get ultimately separated by Allie’s parents who think of Noah as trash, only for fate to bring them back together many years later.
It’s true that this is a kids movie, but it’s extremely funny and talks about self-respect, and even with all the fairy stuff it is a realistic movie where the ugly (but, in his own way, sweet) guy gets the girl, so even if you are were grumpy grandpa you’d still get to enjoy Donkey’s shenanigans and the very charming love story between the titular ogre and Princess Fiona, and their crazy adventure after he agrees to rescue Princess Fiona for villainous Lord Farquaad in order to get his land back (invaded by the refuge-seeking Farquaad’s victims).
Here are some other movies that didn’t make the round this time, but are good choices:
- About a Boy (2002)
- While You Were Sleeping (1995)
- Pretty Woman (1990)
- A Room with a View (1985)
- Seems Like Old Times (1980)
We hope you have a lovely day and enjoy Valentine’s Day with your special someone.Tags: movies netflix romantic staying at home valentine's day
