Looking at the lists of top romance movies and love stories there’s definitely a clear division between the Love Lost and Happy Endings camp – my feeling is that your preference is age related or a reflection of the state of your love life but one things for sure there are
unlikely to be shouldn’t be vampires in any list from anyone over the age of 25!
For the record my Top 5 (with links to videos) are:
So two romantic comedies, two classics and the amazing Brokeback which still astonishes me with its beauty.
I can’t remember the tally in Love Actually but Casablanca, TWWW and Brokeback put me squarely in the lost love category. The rest of my Top 10 (Grease, Truly Madly Deeply, Heartburn, Just Like Heaven and Gone with the Wind ) are more of the same – really great music, some comedy and lots of walking away without the usually, but not always, really gorgeous guy.
Must be my age or my love life, either way Happy Valentines Day !
