Love is different for everyone, and exists in so many different ways. Similarly, romantic movies come in all types. From more light-hearted romantic comedies, to serious, heartbreaking dramas, from tame to titillating, we’ve got you covered. If you want to be (or at least appear to be) a little more cultured and watch a foreign film, we’ve got that too. There’s even romantic animation if that’s what you’re into.
Maybe you and your boo aren’t into sappy romance movies at all, and hate anything associated with the genre.

You can still have a romantic night with your partner or by yourself watching any other genre of movie that tickles your fancy.
