Couples go all googly-eyed for each other & single people state
‘I don’t care about a totally consumer orientated fake holiday, produced by card manufactures; because life is so much more then giving a card to someone and anyways even if I was going out with someone I would make sure that we never-ever celebrated the holiday, because like I said its fake’
However that night, they will be trying their best not to sing along to Celine Dion’s All by myself
Therefore the best movies to stop this from happening have to
A) Have a happy-ish bittersweet ending. As a movie which ends in world destruction
isn’t going to make you feel any better when it finishes. (Dr Strangelove)
B) Still have a love theme, after all it is Valentines day..
C) But end in no couple getting together or hinting that they will live happily ever-after.
Ruling out movies like Die Hard*, Pretty Woman, Most Disney films & Star Wars
Stand By Me
The greatest bromance film ever as they don’t even mention girls.
They just go on an adventure, prat about like boys do and grow closer as friends not lovers.
See the big V doesn’t have to be all about kisses. x x
So there is this girl who is illiterate, pregnant (again) due to her father, abused by her mum and bullied – this film followers her life.
It is the most depressing sounding but most uplifting film around.
Giving you that warm ‘Thank funk, I’m not her’ kind of feeling.
It is a romance film, but one we all aspire to and wish would happen to us.
A guy meets a girl on a train. He is then stuck in the city of Vienna for the night and asks her if she would like to just hang out with him.
You see the chemistry between them and being single you can easily think – one day that will happen to me.
How many romantic films have sequels involving the originally cast?
Hardly any due to that ‘walking into the sunset’ conundrum.
This however is one and it is just as perfect & suitable for the modern-day singleton.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This film, is for the newly single person who has felt their heart pulled out of their chest by a forklift truck, or felt it slowly decay as their perfect relationship crumbled.
It is a film that can give you a new perspective on life, which is very rare….
In Search of a Midnight Kiss
This movie focus’s on that other single, funk-the-world moment.
The strike of midnight on New Years night.
It works due to the fact, it gives you something to look forward to…..Maybe within 10 months you won’t be the single nit-wit you are now.
– Any Documentary focusing on issues
you may be thinking Funk the world
So why not put that angry to good use, watch a documentary like Bowling for Columbine, The Cove & Food, inc.
Then go out fighting!!!!
* Yes they split up in future sequels, but this is about movies standing alone.
