Hey guys! It seems this list is a huge hit! So here’s the last 5 movies. They’re sweet, they’re sappy, they’ll probably make you cry, and they’re completely amazing. Girls, get your boyfriends to watch these with you this weekend. And guys (should there be any that are reading this), girls like movies like this. You’ll get brownie points for picking one to watch with them.
5. The Prince & Me (2004)
Lead Actors: Julia Stiles, Luke Mably
The Story: Prince Edvard of Denmark can’t seem to stop making the tabloids. Paige Morgan’s dream of being a doctor is just out of reach for the time being. When “Eddie” comes to Wisconsin in search of his next adventure, he finds his biggest one yet in trying to get Paige to like him…
What Makes Them Amazing: Obviously, I have a thing for princes. If I’m not mistaken, this is the 4th movie on royalty on this list. And it’s Julia Stiles’s second entry. But it’s more than that. Eddie’s trying to go from pampered to earning minimum wage. His transformation is great to watch. And I love how Paige knows what she wants from life and goes after it. Neither ends the movie the way they began. That’s what makes a good love story, right?
4. A Walk To Remember (2002)
Lead Actors: Mandy Moore, Shane West
The Story: Landon’s one of the most popular boys in school. Jamie’s the preacher’s daughter. When Landon ends up in trouble with the school and ends up lead in the spring play, he turns to Jamie for help. But the more time Landon spends with Jamie, the more he sees the man he should be.
What Makes Them Amazing: It’s Mandy Moore, for crying out loud! (And her 2nd appearance on the list.) But it’s a story of a person who comes into your life and changes it for the better. We can all think of someone who’s done that. And really, aren’t they just adorable there on the cover together? This is one of my favorite movies.
3. The Notebook (2004)
Lead Actors: Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling
The Story: In a nursing home, there’s a man who reads the same story over and over to a woman named Allie. It’s the story of a young couple named Allie and Noah, who fall in love one summer.
What Makes Them Amazing: The Notebook is a classic. And yes, I know for a fact there are still some people who haven’t seen it. It’s such an amazing story of summer love, enduring love, and remembering. And it makes grown men cry. There aren’t that many movies I know of that can have that effect on men. Plus, don’t they make such a cute couple? I love their story.
2. The Princess Bride (1987)
Lead Actors: Robin Wright, Cary Elwes
The Story: Westley has always been in love with Buttercup and soon, Buttercup loves Westley too. But when he’s killed on a pirate ship, Buttercup swears she will never love again. Adventure ensues when Buttercup is kidnapped to start a war and rescued by a masked man…
What Makes Them Amazing: This is even more of a classic than The Notebook. And also, it’s Cary Elwes! (drool…) He’s so adorable. Anyway, I remember being thrown for a loop the first time I saw this because they fall in love in the beginning, which is different from most romance movies. And really, it has everything you could want in a movie. Sword fights, kidnappings, true love, giants, and humor. It’s nearly every genre rolled into one.
Drum roll please…..
1. Titanic (1997)
Lead Actors: Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio
The Story: Aboard the RMS Titanic’s maiden voyage is a socialite who feels the world is crashing around her and a poor artist with a dream.
What Makes Them Amazing: Do we really need more reasons than it stars Leonardo DiCaprio? Because I feel we’re done right there. But I can come up with more reasons. I mean, Titanic’s story itself is interesting. You don’t even need the love story to capture people’s attention. But there’s also the clash of the different classes that makes us want more. There’s an amazing cast of supporting actors that really bring the story to life. And this movie makes girls cry. Even some guys. Which earns it the top spot on my list.
So that’s it! All 15 movies! If you think I’ve forgotten any or have any feedback for me, don’t be afraid to comment! I’d love to hear what you think.
