What they did: Get married
Yeah, seriously. Even James Bond wasn't immune to marriage. Of course, some folks refuse to acknowledge this movie for various trivialities. But, as a fan of Diana Rigg, that in itself is a reason to like the movie.
What he did: Used the word 'Love' in a sentence... and actually meant it.
Tragic really... doesn't he know what happens when any 007 starts growing attachments? Didn't he watch 'Her Majesty's Secret Service'?
What they did: Send their child away from destruction
Superman and Lois Lane
What he did: Altered the course of human history
The AI created by Superman's father specifically told him that he could not change the course of human history. But he did it anyway, to save Lois Lane.
and give Lucifer the finger
At face perhaps, this doesn't seem like much of a love story. But, if you start tallying all the stuff Constantine did to save the living Dodson twin, you realize he sacrificed more than most men do for the hand of a lady.
I couldn't explain this movie to myself, let alone to someone else. But, it was clear to me by the actions of the two main characters, that they did love each other at some points during the film... or was it merely obsession? Sometimes, the two can overlap.
What she did: Pull Charlie out of his nihilistic shell
What he did: Go back into his nihilistic shell
(I mean nihilism in terms of definition number 4a: an extreme form of skepticism: the denial of all real existence or the possibility of an objective basis for truth.)
This is definitely not the feel good movie of the summer. And I'm starting to think by my choices that I don't watch many romantic movies.
This 80's high school romance story really doesn't play out the way a lot of them did. I didn't see this one until I was grown up, and I like it more than some of the other 80's young adult movies I have seen.
What Fernand did: Frame Edmond, steal his fiancee, ruin his life
The Fernand of this movie version is a pretty bad dude. He took everything he could from his best friend Edmond, and he didn't even cherish the things he stole.
What Edmond did: Re-direct Fernand's money, steal his wife, ruin his life
Seems kind of fitting, considering the terrible things Edmond had to endure. But, his love for Mercedes, plus a healthy dose of vengeance kept him focused.
What He Did: Forsake Immortality for Love
In terms of the most romantic things ever done, this has to rank near the top. It's not every day an angel would want a mortal life, just for a girl.
Joseph Grey's rating:
This is a list describing some of the things that characters have done in movies for, or because of love. This is not just romantic love, but also love for family, or friends. I will be adding more to the list.
