Top Five | Mumpower chooses favorite romantic movies

Watching movies has always been a way to see different worlds and time periods. These are the movies I like to watch randomly because they always make me happy, even though they can be wildly unrealistic.

5. “The Princess Bride”

I always remember watching this in third grade with Mrs. Deselms when I turn this movie on. It’s hilarious and always puts me in a good mood. There are also so many amazing quotes. It is a really good spin on fairy tales that people of all ages can watch.

Iconic Quote: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Streaming on Disney+.

4. “The Age of Adaline”

I watched this with my mom the first time I ever saw it and it was amazing. There are definitely some parts that seem sad. This is a great movie about a woman named Adaline who suddenly stops aging and what happens when her secret is almost revealed.

Special Award: Best Narration. Streaming on Hulu.

3. “Stardust”

While this is a newer find for me, I absolutely love it. It has an amazing cast including Charlie Cox, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfieffer, Mark Strong and Henry Cavill. This movie also puts a twist on fairy tales with witches, magical kingdoms, and flying ships.

Special Award: Best Cast List. Streaming on Netflix.

2. “Dirty Dancing”

This movie is definitely in my top three movies of all time. I can not express how much I enjoy watching it. Even just listening to the sound track lifts my mood. In this classic movie, Baby has to spend her summer at a resort and ends up being the dance instructor’s new partner. 

Best Quote: “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.” Streaming on Hulu Premium.

1. “10 Things I Hate About You”

It’s a great romcom that I absolutely love to watch. This is my favorite movie to rewatch because I remember watching it with one of my cousins. It has amazing actors like Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and many iconic scenes. The movie is roughly based on Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” but is set at a high school in the ‘90s.

Best Scene: Heath Ledger singing to Julia Stiles at soccer practice. Streaming on Disney+.

Honorable Mentions:

“The Fault in Our Stars,” “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” “Crazy Rich Asians,” “50 First Dates,” “27 Dresses.”
