TOP TEN TUESDAY: Best Movies to Watch With Your Valentine

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s topic is a Love Freebie.


My love language is Movies.

When I love someone, I want to watch movies with them all day long.

What better way to celebrate love than to watch one of these ten romantic films?

Pop some popcorn (with – I hope – extra vegan butter) and prep for some warm and fuzzy feelings.

The Rise of Skywalker (2020)


Genre: Sci-fi

Starring: Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Carrie Fisher

No matter what evil threatens the galaxy, love prevails…right?




Blue Valentine (2010)

Blue Valentine

Genre: Drama

Starring: Michelle Williams, Ryan Gosling

A cute movie about a family…with an NC-17 rating?

Ignore that foreshadowing about the missing dog and enjoy the ride.


The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

Autopsy of Jane Doe

Genre: Horror

Starring: Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch, Olwen Catherine Kelly

Emile Hirsch’s date night is foiled by a last minute autopsy.

He and his dad (played by Brian Cox) get to work.

There’s about an hour of prolonged nudity, if you don’t mind staring at a corpse.


Hush (2016)


Genre: Horror

Starring: Kate Siegel, John Gallagher Jr.

A Deaf woman connects with a masked stranger when he tries breaking into her house.

He seems very eager to meet her friends.


Ex Machina (2014)

Ex Machina

Genre: Sci-fi

Starring: Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Sonoya Mizuno

Can robots fall in love?

Are androids even capable of feeling?

Either way, you wouldn’t be wasting your time DANCING with her.


Marriage Story (2019)

Marriage Story

Genre: Drama

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern

Another heartwarming Adam Driver movie about love conquering all.

Look, everyone! It’s Laura Dern!


Bee Movie (2007)

Bee Movie

Genre: Comedy

Starring: Jerry Seinfeld, Renée Zellweger, Patrick Warburton, Matthew Broderick

Sometimes, love takes us by surprise…

…and sues us for stealing resources.


Midsommar (2019)


Genre: Horror

Starring: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, William Jackson Harper

The perfect movie for when you need to get away from it all.

This movie is so fire, I can’t bear it.


Creep (2014)


Genre: Horror

Starring: Mark Duplass, Patrick Brice

Give creeps a chance.

They have such fertile imaginations.


Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

Sweeney Todd

Genre: Musical

Starring: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Alan Rickman, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jayne Wisener

Recommended for people with the following fetishes:

  • sailor boys singing about abduction
  • a Victorian goth aesthetic
  • Alan Rickman
  • pie
  • cannibalism

Hope you’re hungry.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy your movie night.

Make some good snacks.

…whoops, I just reread my last film recommendation.

Maybe go easy on the snacks.

  1. Actually, I thought ‘Blue Valentine’ was kind of the ANTI-Valentine’s movie. What a total downer. But since your picks seem more sarcastic than serious, it pretty much a perfect film for your list. I really like ‘Creep,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ ‘Hush,’ and ‘Sweeney Todd.’ The sexual tension between dumb camera dude and Peachfuzz the werewolf, in particular, was truly beautiful. 😛
