What is the most romantic film ever?
|by Anonymous||reply 184||01/07/2013|
"Brokeback Mountain". Because the movie seemed so realistic and possible. I wish that Jack and Ennis had ended up together at the end, but it could never have worked. It was one of the first "gay" films to capture "real" people. It was also the first romantic film that I, as a gay man, could relate to.

Maurice from 1987. Reason: Maurice and Scudder made the hottest gay couple ever. A beautiful movie based on a fantastic novel. I cherish this film.

The tragedy in BBM overtakes the romance.
For sheer, unironic romance in the movies, it's best to go all the way back to the '30s - HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT or LOVE AFFAIR.

This is one of the most psychologically provoking questions asked out here in POP culture DL land.
Is romance tragic. Pretty with a happy ending. Gay only. Glossy and mannered. A series of mishaps. Grand or seedy. Restrained or passion driven. Unrequited or betrayal. Juvenile or 50 years on. Tough and hard won. Unexpected. All about loss and death.
The answer to the questions will reveal more than more than I care to.

Many of my favorites have already been mentioned, so -- like those who mentioned Superman II -- I'm going to select one from a genre not usually thought of with romance: The Fly (1986).
It's the only horror movie I've ever seen that not only scared the crap outta me but also had me crying at the end -- it's the romance between Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis that really pulls you into the story (even John Getz as the jealous third wheel is sympathetic). It's a romantic tragedy masquerading as horror.

Agree with weekend, the parting scene at the end was incredibly romantic.
R157, what is that clip from?

A Very Long Engagement. Genuine chemistry, lots of struggle, and an ambiguous ending.

R162 - Actually, that was kind of a love story. A man risking all for his best friend/the love of his life. I can totally see it. As a matter of fact, one of the most touching love scenes ever was the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Spock's death scene is one of the most tear-jerking expressions of love ever put to celluloid. Live long & prosper.

There is something so wonderfully OTT about History Is Made At Night. I love the way it shifts gears from love story to murder mystery to disaster epic back to love story.

I forgot to add the chemistry between Charles Boyer and Jean Arthur helped a lot. He was so suave and exotic, and she was so cornfed all-American. You wouldn't put them together, but they pull it off in fine style with great performances.

The Bitter Tea of General Yen, with Nils Asther and Barbara Stanwyck. My favorite of all her (and Frank Capra's) movies, and their most romantic.

Ooohh Strictly Ballroom. I love that movie. I guess I have to change my vote. Paul Mercurio's giant ass has the romance category all sewn up.
