Tomorrow is Valentines Day. Most of you (not me) will be spending either the whole day or part of the day with your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife etc.). Although many of you (me) don’t actually have a significant other. A very popular thing to do on valentines day is to watch a movie, so I have compiled two lists, one for people who are with someone and one for people on their own. I have also included some tips on how to pick a movie to watch in case you don’t want to watch the ones I suggest.
I’ll start with movies for couples, basically these will all be “chick flicks” because admit it, she’s picking the movie.
There are many classic movies to choose from, all good, but I’m going to suggest some that are more modern. A very obvious one would be Valentines Day it follows the lives of a bunch of couples living through one Valentines Day. It has a similar story to Love Actually because all the couple interact with each other in some way. You could watch Love Actually if you don’t mind a Christmas themed movie.
You could also watch Leap Year. It is about a woman who wants her boyfriend to propose to her but he won’t. When she finds out that he’s going to Ireland she learns about a tradition where a woman can propose to the man on a leap year. She then travels all the way to Ireland to propose getting into all kinds of problems along the way.
Now it’s time for movies for people on their own. The main rule is to try to avoid anything I mentioned in the above section. You’ll just get depressed because you’re on your own. Remember: Whatever you do, DO NOT GO TO A MOVIE THEATRE!!! That is rule number one of being single on Valentines Day. No matter what movie you go and see I guarantee there will be at least four or five couples in the last few rows making the whole thing awkward. Don’t think that because its called something like Face Eaters From Another Planet Eating People For 2 Hours in 3D, There won’t be any couples, because there will be. STAY HOME! Go to your computer and open up uTorrent, or go to your local movie store and rent something.
The next thing you need to know is what kind of movie to rent or download. Anything with the words “Kill”, “Zombie”, “Apocalypse”, “Evil”, “Race”, or any words similar to those, usually is a good choice. Although if it has the word “Love” in it, then all the killing, zombies, and apocalypses can’t make it better.
If you have a day to spare you could watch a trilogy, or series of movies such as the Lord of The Rings trilogy, the Resident Evil Trilogy, the Die Hard series, or perhaps Star Wars (the original trilogy, unless you really want to watch the new ones).
Now you know what to look for, whether you are single or together, your valentines day should be full of movie watching bliss.
