4 Very Special Romantic Movies That Will Make You Believe In Love

Updated on February 18, 2013

I only watch romantic movies if I'm really in the mood for it. It's probably one of my least favorite genres because it's hard to find good romantic movies that deal with the topic of love sincerely and honestly. What we have out there mostly are romantic comedies that aren't meant to do that anyway. But these are my favorite romantic movies that I think were able to reach a certain level of honesty in their story and representation. Some, would probably even make you really believe in love. Enjoy!

4. A Walk To Remember

This is probably by far the most romantic high school/teen movie out there. It is a story about a popular guy in school that falls in love with a nerdy girl. Sure, there's some cliche's in the plots, but the two main characters and how the story was developed scene by scene will make you forgive all the cliche's. This movie is an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' book of the same name. I'm not really a fan of Nicholas Sparks, but this movie is too sweet to ignore. I don't think you need to be in high school to appreciate this movie, it appeals to older people as well. There's some family and moral values in the story too, which is good.

Score: 3/5

Warning: This movie could make you cry, so prepare Kleenex before watching it!

This is another movie in the list that was adapted from a book by Nicholas Sparks. Like I said, I'm not really a fan of Nicholas Sparks, but there's no way this movie isn't included in the list. I've never read the book, but lot of people who have, claimed that the movie is far superior than the book (which is rare!). The two leads, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, were phenomenal in this movie. The chemistry between them is almost unbelievable. I've seen McAdams in other romantic movies like The Vow and Time Traveler's Wife, but her performance was never nearly as good as what you see in The Notebook. I don't think there's anything out there that could make this movie any better, it's just perfect the way it is! If you've given up on love, this movie might restore your faith in love.

Score: 4/5

Warning: This movie could make you cry, so prepare Kleenex before watching this movie!

2. 500 Days Of Summer

This is my favorite romantic comedy movie of all-time. I can watch it again and again and again without getting tired of it. When you mention "romantic comedy", there's this typical kind of movie that comes to mind. But this movie sets itself apart from other romantic comedy movies out there. It really is NOT your usual typical romantic comedy. The way the story was told is refreshing, funny, creative. The story itself was as honest as can be. The characters were relatable. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays the lead character, was very suitable for the role. The dialogues and the scenes were realistic. When you watch it, you'll feel as if you are experiencing what is happening in the movie yourself in the eyes of Tom. I've honestly never seen a romantic movie that hits too close to home like this one.

Score: 5/5

Warning: Don't expect a conventional ending or you'll be disappointed.

1. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

This is the most original Hollywood movie I've ever seen my entire life. And with most romantic movies focusing on plots and gorgeous leading characters, this movie focuses on the littlest details and things that naturally happen in relationships. The pet name you call your significant other, the intimate conversations you have with them, the tender reactions they have when you do something, the way you handle stuff that you keep as a remembrance of your significant other, like a mug or a card. Those little details.

It's rare for me to still be thinking about a movie after days of watching it, but with this movie, not only that I still kept thinking about it, just thinking of certain dialogues or scenes from the movie made me teary eyed. Some dialogues were just too haunting to forget. The narration by Joel was just as haunting. This movie isn't just my favorite "romantic" movie of all-time, it also happens to be my "most" favorite movie ever. I'm really glad I watched it, I almost didn't! Totally recommended!

Score: 5/5 (it deserves more than just a 5 actually!)

Warning: Don't expect a typical/conventional romantic movie, or you'll be totally disappointed.

      I love Rachel McAdams, I think she's a very talented actress, and I feel the same way about her smile! I've seen Time Traveler's Wife, but I gotta say the book is so much better than the movie, maybe you should read the book too, it's a really good book! :)

      To tell you the truth, the only one I have seen is 'The Notebook'. I just finished watching 'The Time Traveler's Wife', another one with Rachel McAdams. There is something about her smile, so genuine. Excellent movie!!! One you might want to add to that list.
