Romantic Movies Galore!

Yes, I know Valentine's was on Monday, but I'm taking the 'muso' high road, and taking the "only a Hallmark holiday anyway/ we should celebrate the people we love everyday/I'm single and grumpy" excuse.
But, I do love my Romantic movies. So without furhter ado: some of my most favourite romantic movies/moments ever.

The Notebook
"So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day."

"If you're a bird, I'm a bird."

"If you kill him, you'll have to kill me too."

"I'd rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you.

New York, New York
"Will you marry me? Will you marry me? I love you. Will you marry me? I don't want anybody else to be with you. I don't want anybody else. I want to be with you, do you understand? I don't want anybody else to be with you except me. I love you. I love you. Look at me. I love you."

"Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*. The storybooks are *bullshit*. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and *get* in my bed!"

The Way We Were
"When you love someone, from Roosevelt to me, you go deaf, dumb and blind."

"You think you're easy? Compared to what, the Hundred Years' War?

Bridges of Madison County
"I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before."

"I don't want to need you, 'cause I can't have you."

Forrest Gump
"I'm not a smart man... but I know what love is."

You're my girl!"

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
"Some things last."

-You're so young.
-Only on the outside.

"You're... You're God's answer to Job. You would have ended all argument between them. He'd have said "I do a lot of terrible things. But I can also make one of these." And Job would have said, "OK, you win."

I've only seen Pocahontas and Forrest Gump! I need to sort my romantic movie life out. My boyfriend is a total bah humbugger with valentines day and I couldn't care less. Give me something proper like a birthday or anniversary any day! Which of the films would you recommend I see first?

@JadeyLou - Hi! Well, if you've seen Pocahontas you're pretty much sorted haha! No, all of these films I put are amaing.
I say: Notebook first, because that is the single most romantic film EVER, and if you don't cry, I'll eat my hat!
Then, I'd probably go for The Bridges of Madison County - it's more for the 'mums' but it's so sweet :')
And if you're looking for hilarity and great film-making - Manhattan. One of my favourite movies of all time. <3

Enjoy xx
