Movies about love, that men like
The best romantic movies of love can be reviewed any time, and all because of the fact that they have a piece of each of us. Among the paintings, conditionally related to "love films", there are those that are worth seeing, even if you are from the usual melodramas shied away. There are works by prominent filmmakers from whom moviegoers salivate excessively. There is a witty romantic comedy. Finally, there is a science fiction and fantasy with a strong love line.
The Haunting (1990)
This film - one of the symbols of the nineties. But if it is a long time to review, many of the details are weathered from the memory. Many will recall only the scene with a potter's wheel and the poignant title tune, which last a long time does not want to get out of my head. That is the most melodramatic details.
In fact, "Ghost" - a multi-faceted film. Romantic story here is accompanied by not only a mystic about the afterlife, but the proportion of detective elements. Death of a hero Patrick Swayze (this is not a spoiler, right?) Is not accidental. And help Negro-medium ghost need not only to talk to his wife, but also to protect her from danger.
Finally, the "Ghost" - a great comedy, primarily through the work of Whoopi Goldberg, who did not just give "Oscar" for his role as eccentric spiritistki Oda Mae Brown.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
The list of good movies about love, you can include the entire filmography of the director Michel Gondry. But "Eternal Sunshine" - not just a fantastic melodrama. It is also a movie about the layers of reality, anticipating in many respects, "Home." Most of the action happens in the mind of the hero, played by Jim Carrey unusually severe, it is not like that clown-ape, as we used to see him.
Roman characters Carrey and Kate Winslet is not specified, and she resorted to the services of a special office that erases memories. Man agrees to the same procedure. But at the last moment, when the hero is already entangled wires, he decides he does not want to forget his love, even if unsuccessful. He wants to fight and get her back. On this journey begins on the subconscious mind of the hero, in which the hero diligently trying to hide even a particle of memory. Can you imagine a room for surrealist absurdity and unexpected plot twists found in the world of Gondry endangered memories.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
This Edgar Wright film once again reminded not to think that the film adaptation of the comic book will always be about science fiction and superheroes saving the world. There are also comics musician teenager, landed in fantastic trouble. The girl, with whom he fell in love, there's a whole gang of angry ex-boyfriends. Each of them must win in Scott incredible duel passing of the laws of cinema, video games and rock 'n' roll.
A romantic comedy - not exactly a typical genre for Wright, because he usually takes scathing parody of the genre. Therefore, action, humor and unexpected references to popular culture are paid even more attention than the central love story. No wonder the sword of love in an imaginary world "Scott Pilgrim" gives less points than the sword of self-esteem.
Those who have not watched "Amelie", may think that this is some kind of "vanilla" melodrama. Those who watched knows that Jean-Pierre Jeunet took first witty and philosophical comedy in which love stories - so, for a happy ending. And in general, how to suspect a dark surrealist's wife, who has removed "Alien 4" and "Delicatessen" in platitudes! Of course, he took off, though bright, but Sur.
And took off! The "Amelie" kinomanskogo greater relish than any other picture Wife. "Fourth wall" that separates the characters from the audience, with a roar falls at the very beginning of the film. Inventive work with the camera and the mounting film provides no less dynamic than in another action film. A dialogue and the voiceover would have done honor of Terry Pratchett - so much in their ironic everyday philosophy.
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
Wes Anderson shot a great movie and before to take home the "Oscar" for "Hotel" Grand Budapest "." His "Moonrise Kingdom" raises a very bold theme of love between two teenagers. Of course, platonic. Boy and girl, who were not lucky with parents and friends, run away from the camp and sent scouts to adventure. And educators are going crazy trying to find the children and separate them.
But who is looking for the Anderson movie love story! It looks fantastic for staging scenes for the perfect picture composition and color combinations. For the powerful cast, finally, there appear Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel and Anderson's favorite actor - Bill Murray. Unusually served the plot: it has a storyteller - something like a TV show host, who not only commented on the event, but also to participate in them. For film fans, "Moonrise Kingdom" - a real feast.
500 Days of Summer (2009)
Near in spirit to "Amelie" from everything ever created American cinema. And though this time a love story turned out to be the center of attention, storytelling is radically different from anything you've ever seen in a melodrama.
Like Jeunet, Marc Webb tells the story of the formation and collapse of one of the novel using videovrezok, subtitling and voice-over, said "interesting facts" about heroes. The main story is not in order, then it runs forward, then back to the past, drawing parallels between the different scenes. The screen appears constantly count days, indicating in the past we have now or in the future. Of course, to a romantic movie turned out, we need great actors. The first need a girl's dream, which is ready for dry not only a fictional character, but also every other viewer. And Webb unerringly chose Zooey Deschanel - closest to the actress Audrey Tautou, available to Hollywood.
Gone with the Wind (1939)
Here there seems to be no reproach: it is a classic love story, one of the movies that laid the foundations of the genre. The story of how she fell in love with the guy, and he married someone else, and she twisted romance with the villain, who was nobler than seen at first glance ... But at the same time is a large-scale historical film about the Civil War in the United States and the fall of the old South . While filmed from the perspective of the defeated Southerners who are not bloodthirsty racist. Just people who could not and did not want to change their way of life.
"Gone with the Wind" are among the most important paintings in the history (and the most cash, considering inflation). This is one of the movies that you have to look every cultured person, regardless of whether he likes melodrama.
The Princess Bride (1987)
The old fantasy it is only at first glance it seems another romantic fairy tale about a princess simple guy and totally unrealistic romance. There are mixed more genres. "The Princess Bride" - this adventure "cloak and sword", in the spirit not taken then the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and the comedy parodying fantasy cliches. And, of course, a love story in which the hero overcomes all difficulties for the sake of a beautiful lady.
In our country, "The Princess Bride" know is bad, but the Americans at the time included it in the list of the best films about love and funniest comedies. For them it is a symbol of childhood and eighties, for us films of Mark Zakharov. And the phrase "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die "are printed on t-shirts and quote no less than the joke of" Monty Python ".
This list is clearly not enough cartoon! Sincere, kind, but it is quite topical. Cartoon about a completely innocent love of the robot cleaner to robotesse-Scout. No carnal passion between them can not, for obvious reasons. Only a long look in the camcorder camcorders so gentle touch handles.
The robots in this film more humane and more emotional than men. For Homo sapiens writers "WALL-E" merciless: it degrades, degenerates into a greasy and limp biomass. Robots will be the person to provide, protect and take care of. And even saved from this unenviable state will be exactly two robots, learn to love each other and life.
For a romantic comedy, the more animated, it's suddenly dark and frighteningly realistic prophecy.
Quintessence melodramas, you might say. The film, in which the weeping girl, and that scares men, you say. But in reality - a large-scale disaster film, shot by a master of cinematic epic by James Cameron. The film is incredibly difficult technically. In his revolutionary special effects used shooting and special equipment, including, by the way, the Russian mini-submarine. The painting, which shoot more people than at present sunk "Titanic."
In this list, "Titanic" is not the funniest, not the classic, not the kinomansky not the most fascinating film. He is the most noticeable. Its worth a look, because it was an event, and, of course, out of respect for the titanic work of Cameron. And at the same time - to evaluate what is there enough of this Leonardo DiCaprio to frighten Film Academy for decades to come. Almost the entire crew of "Titanic" won the "Oscar", but he did not - and since then, and can not.
The bonus movie. Dr. Horrible Music Blog (2008)
Once in Joss Whedon did not have money for a big project. Then he took off with friends for pennies this musical comedy about superheroes, divided into three episodes and posted on the Internet. And soon after that Whedon called in to shoot "The Avengers" ... However, this is probably a coincidence.
Dr. Horrible - it's supervillain-beginner, hopelessly in love with a nice girl - a vegetarian and human rights activist. For her sake, he is ready to give up their heinous deeds, but here's the rub: the beauty is trying to successfully repel the narcissist Captain Hammer. "The music blog" in all ways a parody of superhero cliches of the genre, but it is based on a love story, though very sad. Love, girls, simple "nerds" and not they invent Rays universal evil, to enslave the world and all of you will remember!
