Writer: Florey DM
Movies for this year's Valentine's.
Flowers and chocolates may not be cool enough for your Valentine's this year if she/he is a movie buff. Remedy that with the perfect gift of movie outings all month long! Well, this is not something that can be pulled off every day, so here we give you a list of movies that you can catch throughout the month for your romantic movie dates.
"Sanam Teri Kasam"
One of the movies you can watch on Valentine's Day (14 February for the uninitiated) itself. What's more perfect to welcome the most romantic day on earth with what is possibly the most romantic movie on offer at the moment? This musical tale of love, longing and loss follows Inder, a boy who wants to love no one, and Saru, a girl whom no one wants to love. They are meant to be with each other but they just do not know it yet.
Release date: 5 February
Don't be mistaken, you might find yourself guffawing more than going "aww" but believe us, this a romantic movie through and through – of course, with a touch of Stephen Chow's trademark nonsense comedy. Nothing says romance like the whimsical tale of a mermaid-meets-man love story. When a mermaid named Shin is tasked to stop a man called Hin from reclaiming their part of the sea, the two soon find themselves falling for each other.
Release date: 8 February
Now how is this a romantic movie? You might ask. Well, Mr. Deadpool himself calls it a love story... so... Okay, so the synopsis says Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool, a former Special Forces operative who undergoes a rogue experiment that gave him accelerated healing powers and a mentally unstable mind, is hunting down the man who did this to him. But, see, he is doing all this so he can one day return to the love of his life and live happily ever after with each other. So yes, love story, for those who also love some humour and hm, plenty of vulgarity and violence.
Release date: 11 February
"Pride And Prejudice And Zombies"
If your gore-loving Valentine's date can't get enough of, well, violence, here's another movie for you gore-tastic couple. This is based on a Jane Austen novel so the romance element is there. Throw in some zombies and there's the gory element! Set in an alternate 19th century English countryside, the zombie plague is quickly spreading and Elizabeth Bennet, who is well trained by her father in the martial arts, joins forces with Mr. Darcy to stop the zombie invasion and discover their love for one another before the world comes to an end.
Release date: 11 February
"How to Be Single"
Who says singletons can't have fun on Valentine's? Albeit this movie's release date not exactly being on the big day itself, this is still a fun Valentine's treat whether to the partnered up or not. Learn a thing a two about love with Alice, Robin, Lucy, Meg, Tom and David, who all have one thing in common - they are all single people with lonely hearts seeking for the right match. What they need now is to learn how to be single in a world filled with the ever-evolving definitions of love.
