314 Days-Romantic Films:Till Valentine's:...CITY OF ANGELS...L.A. highly stylized? It's Movie Magic.

360 Days of Romantic Films: Till Valentine's:  "THE VOW"  was released for Valentine's.  More marketing than Art. Stars hunk, Channing Tatum & rom-drama veteran Rachel McAdams. LOVE STORY AD AMNESIA PATIENT  Formula Film with hardly much depth, but enough 4 sum to reach for hankies. Candy scene works, so does Gift Box. Leo character's a decent fella, but Tatum needs speech lessons, he's monotone at a throaty mutter. Could have been better.  QT: I need to make my wife fall in love with me…

A film for the hope-ing romantic. Entertaining, but not enough stamps.  QT: [drily] "I'm sorry, I didn't know love had an expiration date."

322 Days-Romantic Films:Till Valentine's:  ..."THE PRINCESS BRIDE"... has an almost cult following. 'LOVE STORY Ad FAIRYTALE'  to + violence & not enough romance for some. Quirky! Wonder what a new version would be like given big budget, todays CGI/Film Technology, Tim Burton directs & Johny Depp as Westley. Blasphemy! I imagine  a darker LOTR feel/look. IMHO: not for kids 8-. Qt: "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die."  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093779/

Sad civility is now an aquired taste, but good to know it's out there. QT: "Our love is like the wind.. I can't see it, but I sure can feel it…
