Top 10 Romantic Movies.

I was surfing the good ol' web a few days ago when I fell on a random email on the top 10 romantic movies of the past decade. I found myself disagreeing to a few of them. That's when I decided to give you guys my top 10 romantic movies of the past decade or so ; now some of you might not agree. Please leave in the comments your top 10. Enjoy.

10. How to Lose a guy in 10 days (2003).
I mean come on, Matthew McConaughey is just simply scrumptious in this movie; he has that wicked smirk we all know and love.

9. Just like Heaven (2005)
I first read the book in french; it's called Et si c'était vrai by Marc Lévy in my last year of high school in french class and I remember how touching the story was. Although the movie didn't do the book justice, it is still a beautiful story about a couple who fall in love despite the fact that the heroine isn't even alive.

8. Brokeback Moutain (2005)
Some people will focus solely on the fact that this movie is about two guys falling in love; but it's deeper than that, much deeper. I remember sitting in the movie theater with my best friend Karine, both of us crying our eyes out. No wonder this movie snatched 3 academy awards.

7. a tie between You've got mail(1998) and Pretty Woman (1990)
Between Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks who despise each other in real life while being completely in love online and Richard Gere falling in love with a Julia Roberts, who portrays a hooker while having the capacity to kill someone with her amazing smile, my heart just cannot decide.

6. 50 first dates (2004)
I do love The wedding Singer with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, their first movie together, but I love how even she loses her memory every single morning in 50 first dates, he still sticks around every morning reminding her he loves her.

5. Casablanca (1942)
Oh how my heart jumps everytime I hear the word Casablanca. It's been more than 60 years since this movie came out and it holds a dear place in my heart. It's a beautiful story of love and virtue when a man must decide between the love of his life or his destiny to save his country.

4. P.S I love you (2007)
I first fell in love with the novel; a woman (Hilary Swank) receives letters from her dead husband to help her cope with her mourning. And it seriously didn't hurt that the lead male was played by Gerard Butler.

3. A walk to remember (2002)
Mandy Moore is amazing as a fragile yet strong girl who is sick and has the most-coveted boy of her high school fall in love with her. The saying "don't judge a book by its cover" comes straight to mind.

2. Titanic (1997)
Jack, Rose, what more can I say? Celine Dion's "My heart will go on" says more than enough.

1. The notebook (2004)
For a long time Titanic held the number 1 spot in my list until this masterpiece came out. A wretched love story between a couple from different social classes; just to show you that love knows no boundaries.

What are your favorite romantic movies?
