Movie Binge Watching for Valentines Day
by Anna Lucas
Valentines day is the official day to be romantic and cheesy with your partner. Instead of braving the horrendous traffic and dealing with the long lines in the malls, consider spending this Day of Love in your home in Ponticelli, Daang Hari. What could be a better way to spend Valentines than snuggled up with your special someone, surrounded by lush and serene surroundings in an Italian-inspired neighborhood.
For that special romantic evening, here is a suggested list of Movies for your Binge watching in your home in Ponticelli, Alabang.
Breakfast at Tiffanys. Be enchanted with the iconic Holly Golightly with her perfectly coiffed hair,beautiful black dress and long cigarette. Breakfast at Tiffanys follows the story of Holly (played byAudrey Hepburn), a social climber who just wanted to find a wealthy husband. Of course, her planswere hindered when she met the broke writer next door.
Casablanca. When we heard Humphrey Bogart’s character say the famous line “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine,” we already knew that this love story would not end well. Yet, this movie about Rick and Ilsa’s ill-fated romance set in the World War II era, is listed as one of the greatest films in history and worth watching again.
Roman Holiday. This film is Audrey Hepburn’s debut in the big screen. She plays the lovely Princess Ann, a European Crown Princess on a state visit to Rome. Princess Ann became increasingly frustrated with her scheduled and rigid life and escaped the embassy to enjoy Rome. She then roamed around the city with a reporter she met.
The Guilty Pleasures
Pretty Woman. A rich handsome guy and a beautiful sex worker with morals – this is a modern Cinderella story that made Julia Roberts an American Sweetheart.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. A hilarious movie about a girl doing everything to lose her guy, and the guy doing everything to keep her.
The Wedding Singer. The story of this movie is really quite simple: a wedding singer and a waitress meet and fall in love. But we were all entertained at how Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore unfolded this story. Oh and that song at the end – we just can’t stop singing it.
Titanic. A love story set aboard the RMS Titanic – known as the deadliest peacetime maritime disaster – is definitely a movie that needs a box of tissue.
The Notebook. A Nicholas Sparks movie is synonymous to movies that bring out the waterworks. This one is about a great love story that is at the risk of being forgotten due to Dementia.
Somewhere in Time. There are probably more movies out there that will bring the waterworks, but this 1980 film is memorable for its song. Despite its low rating in Rotten Tomatoes, it has several followers that meet each year to watch the movie – definitely something to pique your interest.
Magic Mike. Channing Tatum gyrating at the screen, nuff said.
Fifty Shades of Grey. After this movie, you would probably head on over to the hardware and buy some cable ties.
Mr. & Mrs. Smith. This story is about two gorgeous individuals with big guns and lots of sexual tension.
There are multitude movies that you can watch during Valentines. So relax and pour that wine (or pop the beer) and enjoy your binge watching in your Crown Asia Home.
