Must see films

Something extra special

Something extra special

We ♥ a love story with a twist, so here’s our pick of the top three love stories, or be that, stories about love at the cinema right now. Besides, we’re a little bored of the happy ever after style films, it’s about time there were more ‘real life’ endings to films.

Date Night
This rom-com starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, as Phil and Claire
Foster, begins with the couple cheekily stealing a table reservation of a no-show couple at a hot Manhattan restaurant. What they didn’t know however was that the couple who’s table they took are being hunted by a pair if corrupt cops. Cue a case of mistaken identity which results in the Fosters fighting for their lives. With plenty of laughs and a comedy genius coupling of Carell and Fey, this film really is a great watch.

Dear John
John (played by the gorgeous Channing Tatum) whilst on leave from the Army, meets Savannah (equally gorgeous Amanda Seyfried), a college student. They fall head over heels for each other (obviously) but can their love survive the distance that the Army is putting between them? We think this one could be a real tear jerker, so better pack the tissues ladies for this film!

I Am Love
Tilda Swinton plays the mother and wife to a wealthy Milanese family however a chance meeting sets to disturb Emma’s regimented world and brings with it passion and a journey of sexual awakening. (Italian with English subtitles). Tilda Swinton is amazing in this film, we love her!

Modern Romance…

Valentines Day is just around the corner, but in a world where e-mails, texts and twitters have taken over from actual human interaction, we ask “where has the romance gone?”

It seems gone are the days when men would swoon their love interest with poetry and love letters, unfortunately we haven’t received a love letter since our teens and not heard any poetry since we studied it at school. And it seems that the commercial aspect of the day has taken over from its meaning. Come late January, you can’t move in any shop for  stuffed cuddly toys holding hearts and other Valentine’s Day paraphernalia. Even the petrol garages have jumped on the band wagon of selling anything that could be seen as a token of affection.

However, we believe that romance does exist but that it’s merely taken on a different form, a modern form whereby a Facebook poke has become the equivalent of that flirtatious look and an ‘x’ at the end of a text means so much more than just an x. So maybe we should take a break from our hectic schedules and busy lifestyles and bring some old fashioned romance back into our lives, the sort that involves mushy words and face-to-face interaction.

Single? Valentines Day isn’t just for couples, show your loved ones that you care and treat them instead! And if you are in a relationship, make this Valentines Day about spending time with each other.
