Candles lit, phones off, (or at least down for a bit!) dinner kit at the ready. We may not be wining and dining this year as usual on Valentine’s Day, but the very wintery weather outside is a great excuse to cuddle up to your favourite person with a movie.
Whether you’re a fan of Valentine’s, Galentine’s or a firm anti of organised days…we’ve rounded up the Laser TV team’s favourite films to indulge in when they’re in need of a bit of romance.
Put on something comfortable, grab your Valentine and get settled in for a lockdown lovefest.
Best for a good blub: The Notebook
Adapted from the Nicholas Sparks best seller, easy on the eye young lovers Noah and Allie’s romance is torn apart by class and war. Side note: imagine Ryan Gosling on over 100 inches of Ultra HD Laser TV…
Best for wardrobe envy: Romeo & Juliet
Shakespeare’s classic star crossed lovers get the glittery Baz Luhrmann treatment. Completely over the top and with The Montagues boys rocking Prada and The Capulets striding out in D&G, this really is a feast for the eyes. The 90’s soundtrack is the delicious cherry on top!
Best with a tub a Haagen Dazs and a spoon: Bridget Jones’s Diary
A year in the life of everyone’s favourite singleton. Complete with Hugh Grant, Colin Firth and a turkey curry buffet. What more do you need?
Best for the whole family: The Princess Bride
Had enough of Hugh Grant et al? Go old school with pirates, giants, revenge and a good old fashioned quest. Full of all the ‘80’s film favourites! As you wish.
Best for reliving high school: 10 Things I Hate About You
Julia Stiles and the late great Heath Ledger take on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew in this cult 90’s classic. Teen heaven.
Best for the romcom haters: True Romance
Despite the title, the romance takes a back seat here. Tony Scott and Quentin Tarantino team up with the biggest of casts to tell the tale of murder, a suitcase of cocaine, and what happens if you upset the mob. A cult classic.
