For some reason my favorite romance movie is Notting Hill that I had just watch once more for the hundred times or so.

So am I the only male here that have one romance movie that he just love or not?

I'd rather claw out my eyes than watch a romance movie. Sorry.

@BillRM,
I've never seen Notting Hill, but the market always has, mostly Chinese, tourists taking their photos by the sign.

For a market it's really ******* expensive.

@BillRM,
1st off are we differentiating between Rom-Com and Romance.

I like ''About Time'' written and directed by Richard Curtis, the King of the British Rom-Coms.
He wrote Notting Hill and wrote and directed Love Actually.

Great movie, great cast and great soundtrack.

@BillRM,
Yeah, I love romance movies. Right off the top of my head I remember, It Could Happen to You with Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda, I think.

Also love Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan romances, Sleepless in Seattle, the one about the bookstore, and Joe Versus the Volcano, a riot.

Somehow, if all were right in the world, Tom Hanks would be married to Meg Ryan.

In a lot of the romance movies of the 50s, the movie would climax with the man proposing by presenting a diamond engagement ring to the woman. Now women think diamond engagement rings are traditional. That diamond engagement ring was nothing but product placement by De Beers company advertising diamonds.

@coluber2001,
What gets me is a lot of romance movies start off by the woman and man really disliking each other and trading negative strokes. They really are at odds with each each other and dislike each other intensely. Then somehow they fall in love--the old opposites attract theme. They get married, of course. What the movie doesn't show is that once the euphoria wears off they spend the rest of their lives bickering and quarreling and disagreeing with each other, trading negative strokes.

The Lobster felt like an antiromance.

Heh. It wasn't a typical romance, but the guy blinded himself to be with the girl.

Well, actually, it leaves it up to the viewer to decide what he does. He goes into the restroom with a knife. I think he blinded himself for her.

The Fountain is a wonderful movie.

A man (Hugh Jackman) travels through time on a quest for immortality and to save the woman (Rachel Weisz) he loves. As a 16th-century conquistador, Tomas searches for the legendary Fountain of Youth. As a present-day scientist, he desperately struggles to cure the cancer that is killing his wife. Finally, as a 26th-century astronaut in deep space, Tom begins to grasp the mysteries of life, love and death.

One of my favourite movies, visually stunning with an amazing soundtrack.
