Sweet movies to watch on Valentines Day

Hailey Steidle, Staff writer

During this Valentine’s Day season, love stories are filling most peoples’ screens. The obsession with watching these types of films during the end of January and most of February is typical for a lot of people. Watching others fall in love, out of love, and witness heartbreak and growth can be addicting. The movies that some may watch can range from classics all the way to new Netflix Originals. Love stories have existed for centuries, so finding one you want to watch may be difficult because of the sheer number of
options available. If you want to enjoy a movie this holiday season, these options may be an excellent place to start looking. There are plenty of options for those who may love classic romance movies. Movies like “The Notebook” are about a poor young man who falls in love with a rich young girl. When the two are separated he writes to her for 365 days straight, but the girl’s mother intercepts the letters. Another amazing classic to watch on Valentine’s Day is “10 Things I Hate About You,” a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew,” set in a 90s high school. The new kid in school, Cameron, falls in love with the school’s sweetheart Bianca. However, when he finds out
that Bianca’s dad will only let her date once her older sister Kat starts dating, he plans to set Kat up with the school’s bad boy. This last movie was so popular that it created an almost cult-like following. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” follows the life of a young New York socialite who becomes interested in a young man that has recently moved into her
building. However, as she tries to move forward with the relationship, her past seems to get in the way. For anyone looking for movies that may be a bit more accessible for viewing, Netflix is a great place to look. The selection of romance movies among the Netflix Originals has a wide range of titles. Movies like “Someone Great” follow the life of a musical journalist turning to her best friends after her long-term boyfriend dumps her just before they move to a new city for her dream job. To movies like “Love Simon,”
a coming-of-age tale about a teenage boy who finds support in the form of an anonymous boy online whom he ends up falling in love with, having never met him. Suppose you like a little bit of comedy in the romance movies you watch. In that case, watch “Set It Up,” about two personal assistants who attempt to set up their workaholic bosses to get
more free time but end up falling in love themselves. There are many good movies to watch and enjoy around this season of love.
