Happy Friday amazing souls! The weekend is just around the corner again reminding us just how quickly time passes by. Or is it just me? I wonder...

The day started with drizzles and winds too so just like any other not-so-good-weather-days, we spent most of today lazing around. Having listened to Robin Sharma's audiobook yesterday, I decided to refresh my mind about romance, love, or just feel-good films.

“Everything I learned I learned from the movies.”― Audrey Hepburn

Movie marathon you say? Uhmmm, not quite. Just one - Ratatouille. And after watching it, I went on browsing all the movies saved in our laptop's storage, and oh boy, they do occupy the largest portion of the hard disks, not to mention those that were saved on the portable drives. From action films to adventure movies to romance to comedy to Bollywood ones to yes, Kdramas.

Are you perhaps the same as me and the farm boy?

Anyways, speaking about movies, I thought about sharing some of our old-time favorite romantic films that have had stayed in our files after watching them many times over. And I can vividly imagine myself still watching them from time to time with the farm boy when we are a lot older, wrapped in a blanket or perhaps slumped on a comfortable couch, nibbling on some chocolate bars or farm boy's favorite potato chips... Hmmm... my mind is going wild, but all good.

“Certain things leave you in your life and certain things stay with you. And that's why we're all interested in movies- those ones that make you feel, you still think about. Because it gave you such an emotional response, it's actually part of your emotional make-up, in a way.” - Tim Burton

The films are not arranged in any order. They're all our ultimate favorites, nothing less. But we do have more than these. I won't be spoiling the details on most of them in consideration to others who may want to watch them too :)

Notting Hill

This is amusing, ahh quite hilarious if you ask me. The thing that really had me about this film is how seemingly ignorant William (Hugh Grant) met Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) at his bookstore and the way they fall in love. Aside from this being starred by two of my favorite actors, the plot and storyline are also, shall I say, brilliant!

And yes, there was the romance between other couples in here too.

The Vow

This is said to have been inspired by a true-to-life event. Rachel Adams (Paige) and Channing Tatum (Leo) have great chemistry in this film. It brought me to several emotional levels - ecstasy, sadness, feel good, pity, amazing!

The love between Paige and Leo was tested by a memory loss after an accident.

  • Can the heart even remember the love when the mind has forgotten the person one was initially in love with? - FarmGirl

Serendipity

I'd say this is one Christmas romance classic. Sarah (Kate Beckinsale), an English girl who believes in fate or destiny referring to it as 'Serendipity' or 'fortunate accident' met Jonathan (John Cusack) while buying a pair of gloves in Bloomingdale.

The story is fascinating in many ways and humorous too. I love the chemistry between these two lovely actors. And the film somehow makes me believe that fate or destiny happens.

  • Love can find its way no matter the odds, time, and distance. - FarmGirl

Pride and Prejudice

"Sometimes, the last person on earth you want to be with is the one person you can't be without" - the film tagline

Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen), a dashing yet snob English nobleman fell in love with Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), who is of a lower-class family. Darcy, being a proud gentleman as he was, has had a hard time admitting his love to the young woman.

There are several love stories within it and some family struggles too.

  • True love conquers pride and yes, all! - FarmGirl

A Walk to Remember

Screenshot

A love story that has many meanings to me, apart from the fact that it was the first film I've watched with the farm boy when we started dating. This movie always makes me cry even after watching it many times in the past.

Screenshot

The story is about the romance developed between two young people who are completely different, with nothing in common. Landon (Shane West) a rebel student fell in love with the reverend's daughter, Jamie (Mandy Moore) who was battling cancer.

  • Love can be learned too, I guess. And when it happens, even death won't let it go away - FarmGirl

Ever After

Screenshot

A Cinderella fairytale of some distant past in a distant land. I love how the story unfolded. I feel it just keeps getting better each time I watch it.

If you love the original cinderella story, this is a must-watch for you too. It has a different twist. And amongst all the other Cinderella variants I have watched, this is my favorite. It's quirky, funny, romantic, emotional, magical, captivating! Ahhh! It's just beautiful! And yes, Leonardo Da Vinci is in here too :)

  • Love is forgiving and transcends all, even a 'mighty' kingdom. - FarmGirl

The Notebook

Screenshot

"Read me this story and I'll find you." - Allie

I'm sure most of us have watched this film. Or maybe not?

Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams), a rich young woman, and Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling), a local worker met when Allie was on a summer vacation in Seabrook and they passionately fell in love with each other but were met with many obstacles.

Screenshot

What caught my heart about this film was how it was done and portrayed where the couple had gone against all the odds and found themselves together as suggested by the scene where an old man reading a romance story to an old woman who has dementia and had lost her memory.

  • Does the heart remember what the mind couldn't? - FarmGirl

    ❤Love transcends all, even time❤

There are many others that the farm boy and I consider our all-time favorites. There's the Titanic, My Sassy Girl (Korean), Brokeback Mountain, Maid in Manhattan, Pretty Woman, Sleepless Nights in Seattle, Bridget Jones Diary, The Bodyguard, and many more!
