To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we put together a list of movies that we love from new to old, romantic to scary to set any mood you’re looking for on your Valentine’s Day!
Erin, Creative Director
Thor: The Dark World
Not your typical love story, but who wouldn’t fall for the hunky Chris Hemsworth as Thor giving up his chance at the throne of Asgard in exchange for a chance at love for beautiful mortal Jane Foster? (*swoon* ) Oops, that may have been a spoiler. The first movie in this trilogy wasn’t as strong and The Dark World but I’m pumped to see the third one coming out next year.
The Harry Potter Franchise
I plan to get on Platform 9 ¾ because I can’t be bothered with stale chocolates and lollipop flower bouquets. I gotta hit my vault at Gringotts, swing by Ollivanders ‘cause I split my wand trying hard to turn pumpkin juice into porter (don’t tell the ministry), track down Cho now that Harry went for the Weasley girl and see what I can do about saving the entire wizarding world.
Mitch, Director of Business Development
Who doesn’t want to serenade their significant other on Valentine’s Day, even though most of us don’t sound great alone. So memorize every song in Pitch Perfect and sing-a-long. They won’t know what hit them. Pitch Perfect gives you everything you need to cuddle up. Say crazy things in a whisper so low they can stare at you with a confused look. Make sure you accompany your acapella singing with some fancy dance moves.
You, the Living
A great film by Swedish director Roy Andersson, there’s no plot as the whole movie is built on these small, absurdist sketches of life. Yes, some of them involve romance, but most of them are just quiet, funny, and at times tragic observations of the human condition. I like to think of it as a bittersweet love letter to humanity, and there’s two more in this trilogy!
Chelsea, Public Relations Manager
A Nightmare on Elm Street
This is the perfect movie to get your significant other to cuddle up next to you and stay up all night because the last thing you’ll want to do after watching Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street is go to sleep. Unless your significant other doesn’t mind you spending the night with Freddy! But don’t just stop at the first nightmare because baby-faced, feathered-hair Johnny Depp doesn’t wake up in time (oops spoiler!) go all night and watch all seven!
