*ACK!*... er, sorry, hairball…
I'm not one for mush... and I'm a Titanic virgin (THANK GOD!)
But for a blessedly wonderful love story I suggest Wings Of Desire. One of my all time favorite movies (right behind Sophie's Choice -- another generally love-oriented movie, but there's less death involved in Wings ). It SHOULD be at your local Blockbuster (mine had it) but you may have to do a bit of searching. Well worth the time and effort to look, though.
Accessories: Eat pasta and drink wine while viewing, and light candles…. LOTS and LOTS of candles….
Preparations: Enjoyment is contingent upon both of you being alert and conversational.
The Red Violin
Dreamy, aching, smoothly sexy, and just downright amazing. Very long, but utterly entrancing. Romance without the nausea -- yeah!
Accessories: The Soundtrack to the movie, to play afterwards while …other… activities are explored.
Preparations: Close the blinds BEFORE the movie… I’d recommend this when both are less talkative and more sentimental. Oh, and LOTS and LOTS of candles…(positioned out of the way of movement)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Audrey Hepburn… do I really NEED to say anything else? When a more playful ambiance is desired… and laughter does WONDERS for any relationship: mature or advancing.
Accessories: bountiful pastries to much on, a blanket to sprawl on, and maybe a cat if it’s handy.
Preparations: giggly moods are good… plus an Audrey obsession/admiration (same difference, really) Beware of girls who will run to the closet for her nearest black dress and attempt the perfect pout all night. I.. wouldn’t .. know .. one.. of .. those.
Lola Rente (Run, Lola, Run)
German, but the subtitles don’t matter. It’s action based and short, but without the love, Lola wouldn’t run *sigh*. Contemporary, fast, interesting, and cute. If you want something different and have a thing for techno and/or fish sauce red, rent this.
Accessories: Popcorn, and a fluent, fascinating guest.
Preparations: for the schizophrenics or easily suggestible, have hair dye ready… I saw this and instantly HAD to get two cherry streaks…*shakes head* I’m so impressionable.
lol.. just kidding… thinking about my relationship again, sorry…
… k. Those are my little suggestions. Have fun! Happy Valentines Day!
