BigaTEN: Favorite ROMANTIC Movies


10.
Wicker Park (2004)

"Love makes you do crazy things, insane things. Things in a million years you'd never see yourself do. But there you are doing them... can't help it."

Plot: A young Chicago advertising executive believes a woman he sees in a café is his long-lost love. His conviction leads to obsession, as he puts his life on hold to trail her.

Sabi ng Bampira: Napanood ko rin ang original french version nito na L'appartement (Andun si Monica Belluci. Ganda niya dito). Sobrang nagalingan ako sa original version kaya lang sobrang nagulat at nalungkot sa ending. Sobrang bigat sa pakiramdam. Kahit na hindi ganun na ka-ok ang treatment sa hollywood version, nagustuhan ko siya kasi happy ang ending. Hopeless romantic lang talaga siguro ako.



9. The Cutting Edge (1992)

"Man and woman together make flower. Douglas, you are stem. Katya, you are petal. Together, we make flower."

Plot: Kate is talented and spoiled. She and her coach have eliminated her most recent figure skating partner with little time to find a replacement. None of the candidates will do, and her coach finds a college hockey player with no figure skating experience as a last possibility. The two are from totally different worlds and argue constantly, but his strong work ethic brings both her father and her coach around. The two enter international competition trying out a new routine that is dangerous for each of them as their respect for each other finally begins to grow.

Sabi ng Bampira: VHS ko pa to unang napanood. Dito ko unang nagustuhan si Moira Kelly (Kaya pinanood ko din yung With Honors) Sobrang daming chessy lines din. Gusto ko yung love-hate relationship nila.

Kate Mosley: I love you.
Doug Dorsey: Just remember who said it first

Kate: What do you do, shower once a week?
Doug: Is that an invitation?




8. Pretty Woman (1990)

"I appreciate this whole seduction thing you've got going on here, but let me give you a tip: I'm a sure thing. "

Plot: A man in a legal but hurtful business needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets... only to fall in love

Sabi ng Bampira: Napanood ko din to sa VHS collection namin. At sino ang hindi makakalimot sa long legs ni Vivian Ward? Para sa akin, isa yun sa pinakasweet na movie character. Gusto ko yung eksena na binalikan at tinarayan niya ang snobbish shop. The best din yung eksena sa Hotel lobby. Napaka gorgeous ni Julia sa Red gown niya. Gusto ko maging room mate si Richard Gere.

Shop assistant: Hello, can I help you?
Vivian: I was in here yesterday, you wouldn't wait on me.
Shop assistant: Oh.
Vivian: You people work on commission, right?
Shop assistant: Yeah.
Vivian: Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.



7. Keulraesik (The Classic) 2003

Plot: It tells the story of Ji-hye, a university student who discovers a secret box filled with old letters while her mother is traveling overseas. As she explores its contents, she comes to learn of her mother's first love affair, a story which closely parallels her own situation at the university.

Sabi ng Bampira: Pinanood ko ang movie na to dahil kay Jo In Sung (Paolo, Memories of Bali) Pero sobrang nagustuhan ko siya. Effective yung flashback sa pagbuo ng story. Ang cute ng lovestory ng parents nila. Trivia: sa Pinas daw shinoot yung war scenes.



6. Dahil Mahal na Mahal Kita (1998)

Sabi ng Bampira: Gusto ko dito ang maldita image ni Claudine. Ang galing niya dito. Bumili pa talaga ako ng kopya nito. Para itong Mula sa Puso-Reunion. Naawa naman ako sa character ni Diet sa ending.

Ryan: Mela alam mo bang ikaw ang pinakamagandang nangyari sa buhay ko …
Mela: Thank you …
Ryan: Wala na siguro akong mamahaling iba gaya ng pagmamahal ko sa iyo … And all my life I will regret the day that I lost you …
Mela: Ryan …
Ryan: Shhh … I will not force you naman eh … maghihintay ako para sa iyo … Baka dumating yung isang araw, pag-gising mo, baka sakaling muli pang tumibok yan para sakin …

-----------------

Miguel: Ok lang kaya kung ligawan kita? … Can you please give me one more chance to love you? … Please?
Mela: Maybe …
Miguel: Mukha ba kong tanga?
Mela: Hindi, mukha kang chewing gum na masarap nguyain …



5. Il Mare (2000)

Plot: Eun-joo moves out of her house "Il Mare", leaving behind a Christmas card for the eventual new owner of the house in 1999. In it she asks him/her to forward any mail of hers to her new address in the city. It is 1997 and Sung-hyun, the first owner of "Il Mare" is moving in and finds in his mailbox the Christmas card from Eun-joo. Thinking it was a joke, Sung-hyun leaves her a letter telling her so and reminds her that its 1997 not 1999. Eventually the two realize that they are separated by two years of time but can somehow communicate through the mailbox and begin to form a friendship through their letters

Sabi ng Bampira: Ganda ng Cinematography nito. D best ang korea seaside. Dahil sobrang love ko yung movie na to, di ko na pinanood ang Hollywood version nito na Lake House.



4. One More Chance (2007)

"Sometimes, it's better that people break up - so they can grow up. It takes grown-ups to make relationships work"

Sabi ng Bampira: Ang galing ng movie at ng cast. D best si JLC. Galing din ni Maja sa breakup lines niya. D best si Vanessa Valdez sa swabe ng kwento. Dami kong natutunan. Gusto ko yung eksena sa stop light nang biglang tumugtog yung "Nanghihinayang". Ganda din ng eksena sa hospital. Ang galing ng sinabi ni Popoy sa kaibigan niya.

"kung nakaya ko, kaya mo rin... naaaalala mo nung akong nandyan.... o e dibat ikaw pa nagsabi sa akin na baka kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin, kasi baka meron bagong darating na mas ok....na mas mamahalin tayo... yung taong di tayo sasaktan at paaasahin....ung nag-iisang tao na magtatama ng mali sa buhay natin... nang lahat ng mali sa buhay mo.... "

Ayoko lang ng Biogesic dialogue. Masyadong pinilit. Ang cute ng barkadahan nila. Dahil dito, me monthsary na rin ang tropang adik namin. Para sa akin, magandang ending na rin sana yung nasa UST grounds sila. Pero malamang, maraming mga hopeless romantic ang maiinis.

Popoy: Eh ano nga kasi ang problema??
Basha: Gusto mo ba talagang malaman? Ako! ako yung problema! Kasi nasasaktan ako kahit di naman ako dapat nasasaktan … Sana kaya ko nang tiisin yung sa akin na nararamdaman ko, kasi ako namili nito diba? Ako yung may gusto … Sana kaya ko nang sabihin sa iyo na masaya ako para sa iyo, para sa inyo … Sana kaya ko … Sana kaya ko, pero hindi eh … Sama sama kong tao kasi ang totoo, umaasa pa rin ako sa piling mo … Sana ako pa rin …Ako na lang … Ako na lang ulit
Popoy: Mahal ko si Trisha …
Basha: Alam ko, alam ko …
Popoy: Basha: Popoy yun ba talaga ang tingin mo? I just made a choice.
Popoy: And you chose to break my heart.


Sa susunod na entry na lang ang aking Top 3. Hmmm......... Pareho kaya tayo ng paborito?
*** salamat sa IMDb para sa plot summary.
