Valentines Day Movie Reviews

By: Katie Bailey
Valentine’s Day
❤❤❤ 3/5 hearts
  In a series of interconnected stories, various Los Angeles residents (Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper) go their way through the highs and lows of love during a single day. As the holiday unfolds, they experience first dates, longtime commitments, youthful crushes and connections to old flames.
  I give this movie 3 out of 5 hearts. It was an okay movie, good to watch one time. The acting was okay, using a lot of stars in their young ages such as Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift. There are a lot of story lines which can make it somewhat difficult to follow. Overall it is a cute movie to watch, just not my first pick.
The Notebook
❤❤❤❤❤ 5/5 hearts
  In 1940s South Carolina, Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) are madly in love. The only problem is, Allie’s parents don't approve. When Noah goes off to serve in World War II, it marks the end of their affair. While he’s gone, Allie becomes involved with another man (James Marsden), but when Noah returns it soon becomes clear that their romance is anything but over.
  I gave this movie 5 out of 5 hearts. This movie is one of my absolute favorites. Nicholas Sparks knows how to fill a heart mixed emotions. Some may say this movie is a ‘chick flick’ because tears can be easily shed.
The Princess Bride
❤❤❤❤ 4/5 hearts
  A man tells his grandson a story about a girl named Buttercup. She grew up with a farm boy named Wesley and they fell in love. He leaves the country to get jobs so he can marry Buttercup one day. Meanwhile, the king takes her as his bride and Buttercup awaits her savior when kidnapped by 3 robbers.
  I gave this movie 4 out of 5 hearts. It’s a movie full of fighting and love. The movie came out in 1987, so the effects are not anything special that will catch your eye, but the storyline is guaranteed to keep you here. This movie would be most likable for the gentleman on this list. It is full of adventure, giants, torture, and true love.
Gnomeo and Juliet
❤❤❤❤ 4/5 hearts
  In this cute animated film, Miss Capulet and Mr. Montague feud over whose garden is the better. Garden gnomes that decorate each neighbor's flower beds continue the rivalry when the humans aren't looking, and gnomes from the Red Gardens don't get along with those of the Blue Gardens. Then Gnomeo, a Blue, and Juliet, a Red, fall in love, leaving many obstacles to overcome.
  This movie is so adorable! I gave this movie 4 out of 5 hearts. This film is for a younger audience but can easily be enjoyed by Shakespeare lovers.
Titanic
❤❤❤❤❤ 5/5 hearts
  The Titanic prepares to launch on its voyage from England. Among the thousands of people on this voyage, two people are brought together, Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet), upper-class American, and lower class Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio). Nothing on earth is going to come between their love -- not even something as unimaginable as the sinking of Titanic.
  I gave Titanic 5 out of 5 hearts. I absolutely love this movie, it has such a great love story and I would recommend it to anyone!
