    hello Yvonne
    I have seen Ladyhawke several times. I have always liked Rutger Hauser in movies and this is a good one.
    one of my favorite romantic movies stars Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard. Kevin's character is hired to protect Whitney's character from a threat who is trying to kill her. during the movie they fall in love, but Kevin breaks it off because he is compromised with his feelings and needs to be objective to guard her. Whitney is insulted and begins to berate and belittle him. eventually they come together to solve the mystery and the culprit is a shocking discovery! in the end Kevin takes a bullet meant for her but manages to kill the shooter. After all is said and done Kevin survives and the two part ways in a bittersweet ending. Great music throughout and the final song I Will Always Love You by Whitney is a tearjerker. I love this movie and watch it all the time.

    I remember seeing that movie, too, and I really liked it also, except I hate sad endings. You watch all the way through, hoping they will finall get things patched up or working right, and then at the end, someone dies, or they split up,
    I just like happy endings !

    Another one of the movies that I really, really liked is called "Just Like Heaven". It starts out with a horrible car crash, and then tells about a man who rents out the apartment where the lady (in the car crash) lived formerly.
    What seems to be her ghostly spirit keeps showing up and she thinks that she is still alive and wants him to get out of her apartment.
    Naturally, they eventually fall in love, and (thankfully), this movie has a happy ending.

    So, does that translate into "The Notebook" or The Bridges of Madison County."?

    The Bridges of Madison County was good. The Notebook was okay, but I wouldn't rate it with my favorites.

    The Notebook: At the end, it was so sad. But it couldn't have happened any other way. Any other ending would have worked.

    The Notebook WAS #1 for us, then, last night, we watched (rented) The Longest Ride w/Scott Eastwood and Alan Alda. What a movie! Both of us had tears coming down our faces. I'm a 66 yr. old male who can get tears running at emotional movies and my wife loves it! Clint Eastwood's son was absolutely terrific in this! And, Alan Alda, great performance as well.

    That sounds like something I need to see. I didn't know about Scott Eastwood existing, much less acting, until fairly recently. But I know Alan Alda has never disappointed me. Regardless of what role he's playing, he is always wonderful. I've been a huge fan of his since I watched him on Mash. If I see his name in a cast, regardless of the type of movie it is, I'll give it a shot. Sometimes, he's the only thing in the entire movie that didn't disappoint me, but more than not he picks great roles.

    I don't usually go for romance movies however, tonight I watched a pay-per-view movie called, "The Age of Adaline". It starred Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn. The unusual plot was what interested me. No sex scenes to speak of, just good solid acting. It was a refreshing change from my usual diet of blood and gore movies.

    I've never heard of it! But I'm going to have to check it out. I love a good romance, and the less sex scenes, the better.

    We really liked both "The Notebook" and "The Longest Ride" also, Cody. I read the Longest Ride book too, and really looked forward to seeing the movie. Like you, I thought Scott Eastwood was Terrific in the movie too. Both movies were tearjerkers.

    There's another one I haven't heard of! I know the Notebook very well. I don't believe I have ever heard of The Longest Ride. But if Scott Eastwood is in it, its gotta go on my playlist. I'm anxious to see how much of his fathers talent he inherited.

    My favorite romance movie is Aladdin. Aladdin is an animation of poor boy falling for rich girl. Aladdin is one of my favorite romance movie because it has songs of love as well as the triumph of good over treacherous evil and greed. Although Aladdin is just an animation movie I like the gist of the plot of Aladdin. I always like a musical anyway. Aladdin lets you go to another world of dreams too. Imagine finding a magic lamp to rub and your wishes fulfilled. It's so magical like romance is when romance is happening in your life. It's Aladdin for me for a magical romance filled movie.

    I've seen all the movies mentioned here except The Longest Ride. I liked them all but can't think of any I'd call favorites. Actually I don't see many movies anymore.

    When there are children around, its hard to pick a favorite out of the 3 or 4 movies they want to watch over and over and over again. Eventually, my favorite will likely be the one I haven't watched 50 times over the past month. Like The Little Mermaid... I am completely burned out on the movie and get nauseous when I hear a Jamaican accent from anywhere.
