Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I see this as an excuse for a romantic movie marathon. (Although, really, who needs an excuse?) A couple of years ago I had asked readers on my blog to recommend their favorite movies. Here are the top ten favorites in alphabetical order:
An Affair to Remember (1957) — starring Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant
Beauty and the Beast (1991) — a Disney animated masterpiece
Casablanca (1942) — a classic starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
French Kiss (1995) — an uptight woman romps through Paris with a jewel thief
Persuasion (1995) — a second chance at love story by Jane Austen
Sleepless in Seattle (1993) — a movie inspired by An Affair to Remember
Slumdog Millionaire (2008) — a critically acclaimed tear-jerker
The Last of the Mohicans (1992) — a dramatic adventure starring Daniel Day-Lewis
The Princess Bride (1987) — a wonderfully strange fairy tale
When Harry Met Sally (1989) — a witting and insightful look about relationships
I prefer romantic comedies over the tragic love stories. French Kiss is my favorite and When Harry Met Sally is a close second. I could watch those movies again and again.
