I dont know all those movies... But here are my favorites romance movies...
Titanic= a classic... so amazing and powerful... I think its the second greatest love story after twilight... :) Leo is amazing!!! Soo sad at the end!!!! OMG!!!
a walk to remember= magic!!! She changes him... He becomes a better man for her... He makes the rest of her life perfect!!!
, the notebook= soo cute!!! A love so passionate that nothing can tear them apart...
Ps I love you= so sad, but so beautiful!!! He loved her so much that he planned everything for her to be okay after he dies... :)
The princess bride= Westley is just so charming and smart!!!haha, love him!!!

But there are others amazing love story, I just dont remember them all at the moment... great job!!! what are your faves?? and do you think the ones I named are great???

Out of Africa, Titanic, Gone with the Wind, Dirty Dancing, the Notebook
wuthering heights, I knoww I know how can that be romantic when they're such horrible people, well I love it because it's love in its rawest form, it's a violent love because catherine and heathcliff have such intense and fierce emotions, it's not a lovey dovey love, it's a consuming love and I just love it lol :) The Notebook!!!!! awwww so cute :) PS I love you......even though I cry for two hours when I watch it, titanic of course who doesn't love that, annnnnnd romeo and juliet :)

Dear Tara, I logged on and saw that you had just posted your list, so I thought that I would add mine.

Thank you for this question incidentally, since it was your answer in the "what were the best vampire books discussion" which not only inspired me to order two books from Amazon today but also inspired me to draft this question.

This is a tough one because there are lots of wonderful movies. But which ones do you feel romantically move you.
The 1933 love story "King Kong" was ruined because the hero, the who loved Tina Fey the very most (the gorilla) was machine gunned, and the poor girl was left with just a human.
And then the wonderful "Pride and Prejudice" was left off the list of America's best movies because the judges refuse to accept England as part of the United States.
"And a walk to remember" wasn't even considered just because I was the only one to have seen it. Old Yeller was left off just because Yeller was a dog. Which Professor Buttons is still mad about

So my list is: 1. Dirty Dancing
2. Pride And Prejudice (Colin Firth)
3. Casablanca
4. A Walk To Remember
5.Its a wonderful life

Honorable mention
An Affair to remember
Love Story
Old Yeller, And Where the red ferns grow. (for Buttons)

Now I get to see what you choose. It will be interesting to see what a moderd woman chooses.
Your friend,
Doc B
Dear Tara,
You are such a wealth of knowledge. Had I known (that in "Titanic" she went back to him in the end. I would have placed it much higher. I never knew that. Just knowing that makes the movie much more enjoyable for me.

As you might remember in our debate on unconditional love I choose him as an example of someone exibiting unconditional love, for seeing that his girl was safety on the wooden board protected from the freezing water, while he pretended that he would prefer to be in the ocean, until he just froze to death and sank away.

I choose Dirty Dancing, because it was so real and alive. Pride and Prejudice of course was wonderful and after studing Stephanie for a year I know that Darcy and Elizabeth are Edward and Bella. I know that it wasn't fair of me to choose a movie that wasn't eligable. But I read an interesting quote in a book today, and the heroine just happened to say "Who said life is fair !"
Love both your choices!

I knew Rose died at the end I think it was a brilliant way to end it, the necklace were it belonged in the sea with Jack because that's where her heart belonged.

I do like Gone with the Wind but I have to be in the mood for it, both my mum and my nan love it.

Pride and Prejudice doc, with Colin Firth is the best one, he portrayed Mr Darcy so well as that stern awkward man, but totally softening up *swoon*

I didn't know that at the end of Titanic, they were together. Have you noticed that it doesnt seem Titanic is ever shown on HBO etc. At least I have never seen it.

Colin Firth is a wonderful actor. Hollywood is crawling with Britts and Ausies (Thank God) They are realy gifted. Sookies brother on true blood has a perfecy Louisians accent. But when he is interviewed he sounds like he just arrived from Sydney.

There was an English movie called Sense and Sensability. And the brother law had a minor role in it ,and now plays House MD in the states. Once again he has no accent. But when poor Keven Cosner tried to play Robyn Hood his accent was terrible..

Yes pnp with Firth was wonderful. I so wish the English put out more films they are just great. So much of what the US puts out is for the under 13 age group. Or 30 year olds who think like tweens.

Twilight has a huge tween following but as Stephie says , she wrote it for 30 year olds. She said it doesn't matter how old you are. High School is remembered so well that everyone can relate to it.

Hello everyone I'm not very crazy about movies with sad endings and TITANIC I saw only once,,,the scene were Rose pushed him into the water was haunting me so after that I only saw one movie with a sad ending and that movie was THE PAINTED VEIL it was a beautiful love story ,in the begining Walter loves Kitty and she was should I say bored with him but when her love awake her heart it was to late ,,,not too late for his love ( he didn't know if the child is his but he forgave her loved and protected her) The song in the end was in french ,,I cried and I have watched movie a second time but i stoped it before the scene where he died it was such a sad scene
