Love in the Time of Cinema

Oh, Junkies! Love is in the air, or so I am told. Zrose25 and I decided that we would give you a two part Valentine’s Day gift. Part one, a list of our favorite romances from our personal collection selected within a five minute time limit. There were a lot we argued over (like my “freakish” love of Nic Cage) and a lot that we love but don’t own so don’t expect the same old romance movie list. Stay tuned for Part two, tomorrow.

Nothing spells romance quite …

50 First Dates – like beating Rob Schneider with a baseball bat.

Across the Universe – like a post Eddie Izzard circus skinny dip.

Amelie – like a zorro mask and a metro station photo booth.

Clueless – like hooking up with your former step-brother.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog – like your own key to a shiny new Australia.
