I don't watch many romantic films, but Dr. Zhivago and A Beautiful Mind have always moved me.

I love "Sleepless in Seattle" and it gets to me no matter how many times I see it.  Another Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan film that I like is "You've Got Mail".  I love the end of the movie when they meet in the park along with the dog.  I'd never through of "Sound of Music" as a romantic movie, but that is quite a love story when I think about it.

I do agree with The Sound of Music though.


I really liked Notting Hill especially the last scene in the book shop and then at the press conference at the end.

 

Love Actually is another one.

Yet have you ever noticed in the last couple of decades how they try to impress the general population (aka sheep) by telling us how much money was spent on making a movie...and that is supposed to impress me or indicate to me that it is great movie.

 

As I mentioned in another post, mindless crap for the mindless masses.

"....Now that IS a movie. Whatever hapened to the movie industry?....".

 

   Went for cheap special effects instead of great dialog, plot, sets, music. I'm a fan of the big-budget films from the 60's-70's that are far too expensive to even contemplate making today (Ben Hur, King of Kings, Spartacus, Lawrence of Arabia, etc.).

   We mostly watch English film now anyway --- American films, except for indies, are (to generalize) too violent, too much cursing, not enough character development.
