Conversation with my Peeps

So yesterday I asked everyone for suggestions in the romantic movie category and Wow! I got some great suggestions. I decided to copy my comments section here today:

RF Long suggested Enchanted It’s on my Netflix list but not available yet. I can’t wait to see it. I think I’ll try bumping it up a few spaces.

Ayla says 10 things i hate about you, Just like heaven, the prince and me, when harry met sally, you've got mail... i could go on

I liked The Prince and me and of course Harry Met Sally is a classic. I’ll have to put the other two on my list.

Nonny suggests The Lake House with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves.BEST paranormal romance movie I have seen, EVER.

Which I can’t argue at all. I almost wish I hadn’t already seen it, because it would be a treat all over again. Definitely the best movie ever.

Jennah says I'm not much help either. My fav would be The Notebook. A Walk in the Clouds with Keanu Reeves is really good too. I can't think of any new ones.

Saw the Notebook and it was really good. I’ve also seen a Walk in the Clouds and I’m thinking I need to see it again - in fact I put it back on my Netflix list last night! – anything with Keanu in it is sighworthy all by itself. I drool for that man.

Kris says I have to concur with A Walk in the Clouds. Also, what about Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves? That's an oldy but a goody.

Somewhere in Time in another one of those classics. Good stuff!

Msmenozzi offers a long list:

Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down! (Antonio Banderas and some rope? OK!)

Ooh – putting this on my list

Under the Tuscan Sun (chick flick with beautiful scenery - yes, I mean Raoul Bova.)

Seen it – loved it.

A Life Less Ordinary (Ewan MacGregor? Yes, please!)

Ooh, love Ewan!

Return to Me (A sweet and sappy film, yes. I love it, though.)

Seen it, also sweet and sappy but good.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Jim Carrey? Romantic? Yes on both counts.)

Seen it – it’s one of those that left me going, huh?

Say Anything (John Cusak's classic)

A classic.

The Birdcage (hilarious, campy, and a true romance at heart)

Very cute also.

Jump Tomorrow (an obscure little flick about how life can pass us by if we don't fight for our loves)

Never heard of this one, I’ll have to look into it.

Eden Bradley offered another great list
All my favorites are a bit older:Chocolat - Yum
The Princess Bride - Classic
Love, ActuallyOne of the absolute best!
Pride & Prejudicethe new one I hear is fabulous, must get it.
Practical Magic - faboo
Music & Lyrics (saw it recently-very cute!) – also very cute
The Fifth Element (not your standard romance, but I love that movie!) – Hmmm, This one I know DH will consent to watch with me at least.
Waiting to Exhaleputting it on my list

Lillian Fiesty offers

Before Sunrise is one of the best leaves you with that dreamy felling movies.
I think I saw before Sunset, got to see which one comes first.

Jennifer Lewis says

I can only think of classics that give me that ::deep shuddering sigh:: feeling. An Officer and a Gentleman, To Have and Have Not, and All that Heaven Allows are three of my faves :-)

Will belegon says

I'll echo Feisty... Before Sunrise and Before Sunset are awesome movies and as well-written and acted as you will ever find. I'm even on a yahoo group about em.I agree with many here...Some Kind of Wonderful strikes all kinds of chords with me...The American President Shakespeare In Love (Not a normal HEA but tres romantique)Much Ado About Nothing

Loribelle Hunt adds: Sabrina and Persuasion

I loved Sabrina with Harrison Ford!

Toni Sue says:

Just Like Heaven

13 going on 30 is cute, funny and a good love story.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Leigh Royals votes for Oh, I adored Music and Lyrics.

CC offered this list

Sleepless in Seattle

Hope Floats

City of Angels

When Harry Met Sally

Music From Another Room

While You Were Sleeping


Princess Bride



Dr. Zhivago

An Affair to Remember


Thanks so much everybody! Now I have a list to work with. Considering Valentine’s Day is coming up and I’ve got two novellas and a full length romance to finish, I so need that lovin’ feelin’. I’m off to Blockbuster!

So many good ones! I can never think of stuff like that when asked, however, I might add Blade Runner to that list. Yes, I know that's an odd choice but at heart, Blade Runner contains a thread of romance.

Ah yes, the good old days before Sean Young was a crazy drunk.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

LOL, Kristen. I haven't seen Bladerunner in years. Maybe I'll put the new director's cut on my Netflix list.
