It’s never too early to get ready for Valentine’s Day, especially when there’s lots of movies perfect for some “Netflix and Chill” with your date or significant other.
Here are some of the most romantic and knees-weakening movies that you can stream during the month of love.
1.) 500 Days of Summer
If you haven’t seen this film, then you’re way behind the times. This quirky, off-beat movie perfectly captures what love is — unpredictable, messy and can completely break us down only to make us new again. Are you single on V-Day? Then put this film on and hug a tub of ice cream.
2.) Begin Again
Ahhh, music and love! Who’s to say they aren’t one and the same? If you’re a slave of both, Begin Again might just be a perfect film to watch with your S.O. on Valentine’s. Kiera Knightley plays a heartbroken songwriter who learns to “begin again” through music with the help of a beaten-down and disgraced music producer (Mark Ruffalo) looking to re-connect with his estranged daughter.
3.) Blue Is The Warmest Color
If you’re tired of the same old heterosexual romantic films you see on cable every February 14, why not stream Blue Is The Warmest Color? This 2013 coming-of-age French film tells of a young girl’s self-discovery of passions, art and love beyond her boundaries. Although tainted with controversies of abuse from its director, this Cannes-winning film is worth watching.
4.) 50 First Dates
We have yet to meet anyone who has seen this film and didn’t think it was great. 50 First Dates is a perfect… Well, first date movie to watch because it’s light, funny but nevertheless touching. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymoore’s chemistry on-screen shows as they play an unlikely couple that are fighting for love against the odds of a medical condition.
Probably the only movie that made us want to share a passionate night with a ghost, this film starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze gave us some of the most memorable scenes in film history. If you’re planning to “Netflix and Chill” on Valentine’s Day, put this movie on and maybe grab your pot-making tools as a pre-game ritual.
