Time Out’s 100 Best Romantic Movies

20130423-065016 PM.jpg
Can’t say I fully agree with their list (Up should be much higher for one thing – Up is my number one…). However, Brief Encounter is definitely a good one. And Harold And Maude is a favorite movie of mine but not one that pops into my mind when I think of “romance”. I’ve not seen numbers 3, 4 & 8. Hmm…

Their top ten:

10. Punch-Drunk Love
9. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
8. A Matter Of Life And Death
7. The Apartment
6. Brokeback Mountain
5. Harold And Maude
4. Annie Hall
3. In The Mood For Love
2. Casablanca
1. Brief Encounter

Link to the full list: Time Out London

I do recommend Brief Encounter – I loved it. Lots of great sexual tension! My review: Brief Encounter

    • Oh wow! I think a lot of people would tell you that you need to see Casablanca. 🙂 To be honest, I was SO young when I saw that that I don’t remember it well – should really re-watch! I highly recommend Brief Encounter and The Apartment. Brokeback Mountain is also very good. And Harold And Maude as just a great quirky movie – I love that one. 🙂

      • John Leguizamo is underrated. He’s had some great parts! I cannot wait for The Great Gatsby. They’ve already started torturing with trailers!

    • I love Before Sunrise & Before Sunset! 🙂 I did a list of my top five movies about love for Valentine’s Day & those were on there. Great movies. And they had such good chemistry. And there’s another one coming! 🙂

  1. I saw A Matter Of Life And Death recently and it’s a great film. Before I met my husband, I’d only really seen films like Clueless, Muriel’s Wedding and Grease, and he has shown me so many films I would never have chosen for myself, like A Matter Of Life And Death 🙂

    • I’d never heard of that one so had looked it up when I read this article. It does sound interesting! It’s been added to my extremely long “to watch” list. 🙂 I do love Muriel’s Wedding! Good film. And Clueless was a lot of fun – love Paul Rudd.
