Movie Suggestions to Watch on Valentine’s Day
As Valentine’s Day approaches, students at American High School recommended their favorite romantic films.
Confessions of a Shopaholic, a romantic comedy released in 2009, was amongst the suggestions.
“Even though the movie is pretty girly, it’s super fun to watch with friends or your significant other,” sophomore Denise Kuo said. “It has a really sweet and realistic love story.”
While Kuo is a fan of a slightly outdated movie, junior Malvika Brahmbhatt is in love with a classic love story, Titanic, released in 1997.
“I love Titanic, even if it is a bit cliché, because it’s a love story so sweet, sincere, and positive that it succeeds in breaking down the defenses created by a narrow-minded society,” Brahmbhatt said. “I would definitely recommend it to people of all genders, ages, and backgrounds.”
Another movie recommendation, Safe Haven, is a mystery romantic film that was released last year on Valentine’s Day.
“I really like the mysterious plot in Safe Haven,” sophomore Manik Wason said.
Wason also enjoyed another film released in February of last year, called Warm Bodies.
“The movie was really interesting because it had zombies. It also showed how his heart was changing when he was with the girl and how the way he took care of the girl affected his heart and feelings that eventually made him back into a human,” Wason said.
Movie theaters in the U.S are also planning on releasing new films on Valentine’s Day. Endless Love, starring Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde, is a drama-filled romance movie with a similar plotline to Romeo and Juliet.
