9 Unconventional Valentine's Day Movies
Not everyone loves romantic comedies... do something a little different this February 14th and surprise your date with a movie that's unexpected. Whether you like to stay in on Valentine's Day and snuggle up on the couch with a good movie or go out to theaters, here are my top 9 favorite unconventional picks for a good romance flick.
1. Warm Bodies
A mix between a romantic comedy and a zombie flick, Warm Bodies is the unexpected love story between a zombie and a human girl. This is a good movie to watch if you're looking for something light-hearted and fun.
2. Love Actually
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's an unconventional Valentine's Day movie because its set in December and has a Christmas vibe, but it can be enjoyed all year round! Also unconventional because not every story has a happy ending...
3. Before Sunrise
A real look at the start of a relationship. This is the story of 2 people who meet on a train and know that they will probably never see each other again, even though they have an amazing connection. The entire series Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight is worth binge watching!

4. 10 Things I Hate About You
A modern twist on Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew", this movie is about a younger sister who wants yo date but can't until her older standoffish sister does. Great for some laughs and it has a great soundtrack!
5. Silver Linings Playbook
Not your typical love story, this movie is about 2 people with sorted pasts who come together under unexpected circumstances. This move keeps you guessing and laughing.

A love story like no other... technology is such a huge part of all of our lives, is it crazy to think someone could fall in love with an operating system with artificial intelligence? See this movie before you decide!
