Valentine's Flick Picks - Faye's Choice

What is it about love that makes people 'gaga'? Well, let me answer that by listing my Top 3 Favorite Romantic-Comedy Movies:

Bill Pullman and Sandra Bullock as Jack and Lucy

Lucy works as token collector on a mass transit, comes home to a cat, and leads a very lonely life. That is until she saves a handsome commuter and meets his family. I've watched this movie maybe a hundred times and I never get tired of it. This is one of Sandra Bullock's movies that made her into America's sweetheart.

I love how geeky Jeff Bridges is here!

Now, don't raise your eyebrows just yet. I know this movie received a lot of criticism for being an ego production of Barbra Streisand. She starred, produced, and directed this film. She even co-wrote and sang the theme song 'I Finally Found Someone'. But all that aside, I found the story touching and funny. It deals with a person's insecurities and finding one's self-worth.

Business Nemesis

Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, this film is about book shop owners in New York City. I love the 'feel' of this movie. The soundtrack is great; so is the cinematography. It gives you the feeling of being cozy and familiar. Which is ironic as the story depicts online communication (through e-mails) and falling in love without personally meeting.

What are you waitin' for? Go watch 'em flicks, now! ;)

Valentine's Flick Picks - Martha's Choice

Feb 14 is only three days away. Here's a list of not-so-old movies that couples can enjoy and would make even single people (Like moi!) feel the love.

I wish I got to dance with Michael Vartan on my prom! Lol

Josie, a 25-year-old aspiring journalist, has been assigned to write an article about the modern youth. For her research, she has to go undercover and enroll as a high school student again! Here's the catch: Her real high school days had been hell - Bullied as a geek and called 'Josie Grossy' by everybody! With a makeover and a little help from her cool brother, Rob, she now gets a second chance to enjoy youth, making friends with the popular group and getting her first kiss.


You might want some tissue nearby when you see this
This is about Jerry Maguire, a successful sports agent whose career crumbled when he developed a conscience overnight. He then learns a big lesson about valuing people and life. As much as it is an inspirational story, it's a love story as well. This film gave birth to several famous lines such as Jerry's "You complete me." and Dorothy's equally heartwarming reply, "You had me at hello." If you haven't watched this yet, take my word, it's definitely a must-see!

Jonathan connects the moles on Sara's arm to draw
 the constellation, Cassiopeia. Nice move, man.

If you ask me, every romantic should watch this film! While doing their last-minute Christmas shopping, Jonathan first met Sara as they both grab the same pair of gloves at Bloomingdale's. Each felt a spark right away but since both are in relationships, Sara decided to put the matter into fate's hands. With only their first names known and the rest of their vital info written on a copy of Love in the Time of Cholera and a $1 bill lost in New York, they parted ways. Years later, they seek each other out hoping destiny would make them meet for the second time around.

Happy Heart's Day, y'all! Have a good one! :)
