  • Romantic movies that boyfriend will like also?

    We have trouble agreeing on movies. For the most part, when i was to watch a movie, i want a comfort movie to make me feel all warm and fuzzy. He wants one that isn't frustrating and has an interesting story without the "stupid decision characters". He gets very frustrated with the romances where someone cheats on someone, or a character makes a dumb decision, and fixes it through the entire movie. He doesn't like the sad ones where the significant other dies at the end either, mostly because it makes him feel like crying, and he wants to get happy from watching movies with me, lol. Any good deep romances out there that might be good? Or even action movies with a sideplot of romance? Thanks

  • I'm a guy, so take the advise accordingly.

    I'd say the only genuinely interesting romance films are not western. They are forumulaic, predictable and thus boring.

    Spring, summer, autumn, winter and spring. - Korean film about the life of a monk living on a floating temple in a lake. Very moving, very thought provoking and leaves you thinking about it long after the credits have rolled.

    3 Iron - Another korean film, about a man who lives in other peoples houses while they are away (without their knowledge), he meets a woman and their journies join. There is very little spoken dialogue and all is told with meaningful cinematography. I love this film.

    Ditto - Another korean (I know, I know) romance, with a slightly paranormal twist. As usual for eastern cinema, it is understated, and different from what you expect.

    Irreversible - French. Perhaps it's better you don't watch this, it isn't a love story per se, but is a study of human character, relationships being involved. Parts of this film are truly horrific, and no film I know will affect you like this one. A very uncomfortable but very rewarding film.

    Lost in translation - American... Many people hate this film, many love it. It is a slow romance, not obvious, and feels like the real (if surreal) world, you aren't bludgeoned to death with sickly romance. Even if you're boyfriend is bored he can still watch Scarlett Johansons delicious body and enjoy himself.

    Foot loose - American. how to make a rubbish standard love story entertaining? Have a Patrick Swayze dancing to fight conservative christians and throw in a game of chicken with tractors (really quite a stupid film, but I was laughing all the way though).


    That's enough for now.

      That's Kevin Bacon in Footloose, not Patrick Swayze.

      My boyfriend liked Memoirs of a Geisha. Really good movie.
      Well some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate, and for them I can not disagree. But I never learned nothing from playing it safe; I say fate should not tempt me. I take my chances.

        • The Illusionist.
          Deja Vu

          Both movies have action and a romantic story wrapped together. The first is more romantic, the second more action, but both are good.

            i'd Agree Illusionist is awsome movie.

            i don't mind Romantic Comedys such as Just Friends

            • Thanks everyone, keep the suggestions coming. I've seen the illusionist, i LOVED it, and so did my bf. I'll look into those foreign movies.

                • Oh and if anyone knows of any good action movies (or violent, however you think of action) that have hot sex scenes or something, i'll watch those too. I just need something to get me in the mood (movies have that effect alot of the time) and not make it a movie that he hates.

                  • Die Hard is an awesome series. It's got a lot of car chases, explosions, and saving the world ... and John McClane is doing it all to get his wife back. It's not so sweet that it's sickening; he spends a lot of time being sarcastic and cavalier about it.
                    I don't think that there are any sex scenes, though. Just some very-anticipated hugs.

                      • How could you have skipped "The Princess Bride"? "What a Girl Wants" is a pretty good one. The only romances I can get through are comedies.

                        • I never thought I would admit this (plus I never thought I would sit through it for 3 hours) but I will watch Titanic ever time it's on.

                          Excuse me, after admiting that I must go punch myself in the face!

                                Is he ok with guy/girl porn? Is it a matter of him being unhappy about the porn in general, or that it was lesbian porn?

                                I think some men look at lesbian porn as an assault on their masculinity (no men needed) and/or a potential loss of the tightness of their marriage. The...

                                I’m not a huge pornography fan, but was checking out some G on G stuff and my husband totally became aware of it. No snooping, but I was surprised at...
