As Valentine’s Day approaches, the only right way to celebrate is by cuddling up on the couch and binging movies with your significant other… or a pillow always works too. Sometimes deciding which movies to watch is a struggle, so don’t worry, here is the perfect guide for you. Whether single or taken, these movies will add a little bit of fictional love to your Valentine’s Day. 

“Valentine’s Day” 

“Valentine’s Day” is casted with fan favorite celebrities such as Bradley Cooper, Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Lautner, Emma Roberts, Jamie Fox and more. The rom-com is a series of interconnecting stories to an emotional rollercoaster of love during a single day…Valentine’s Day, of course. As the adventures of the day unravel, they’ll experience first dates that turn into long term commitment and reignite past flames. Within this drama, the audience will be on a ride with the highs and lows of every emotion and romance. 

“Beauty and The Beast”

You can never go wrong with a classic Disney movie, especially when it comes to the masterpiece of “Beauty and The Beast.” Within this cinema Princess Belle finds the true beauty within the beast, expressing that beauty goes so much deeper than what’s on the surface. Not only is “Beauty and the Beast,” a hopeless romantic tale with a powerful message, but it consists of enthusiastic scenes that’ll make anyone want to get out of their seat and dance to the lighthearted tunes. 

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” 

Based on the trilogy novels written by Jenny Han, the “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” movie series has something for everyone. The series circles around Lara Jean’s love letters that somehow got released to her crushes. Her letters were meant to be for her eyes only, yet once they’re mailed out she must face the twists and turns of this love adventure. Get cozy and binge the three movies — or books if you prefer — because you definitely don’t want to miss this teenage romance.


Blended” is an American rom-com, where fate leads a divorced mom, Lauren, and widowed dad, Jim, on a love adventure during a trip to Africa.  Romance movies are not everyone’s cup of tea, but don’t worry, “Blended,” is not just a cheesy romance, there are lots of moments of comedy and coming of age scenes. “Blended” is fun and loving, perfect to watch together with family for some laughter. 

“My bloody Valentine”

If you ever get caught in the alternate universe of “My Bloody Valentine,” watch out if you celebrate the festivities of Valentine’s Day because you may just end up discovering the truth of an old folk tale. The legends are true, the 14th of February is coincidentally more death than love. 

I can’t forget the honorable mentions: “The Fault In Our Star’” and “Five Feet Apart,” are both beautifully painful, drama romances while Titanic” and “The Notebook” are also two classic romance movies. 

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and remember not only to sprinkle confetti of love to others, but to also take time to love and care for yourself as well, this season.
