James Bond and Tracy


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.

Casino Royale (2006)
James Bond and Vesper Lynd



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'?

I suppose you could argue that this doesn't belong with the rest on this list. However: she did love Bill, and he loved her back, in his own twisted way.

Constantine (2005)
Constantine and Angela


What he did:
Go to hell


Challenge Gabriel


Make a deal with Lucifer


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.

Possession (1981)
Mark and Anna


What he did:
Go crazy


What she did:
Go even crazier


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.

Cassandra and Hoops


What he did:
Get creative, and overcome his fears to save Cassandra's house


Actually, Hoops did a lot to help Cassandra. When he first meets her, he helps her escape from some mad bikers. He should have learned immediately she'd be a lot of trouble.

Charlie and Léna


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.

Lloyd and Diane


What she did:
Give Lloyd a pen


What he did:
This


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.

Mercedès and Edmond


and Fernand


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.

Marion and Damiel


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.

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.

Titanic, Jack and Rose. He knowingly allowed Rose to lie upon the floating door whilst he froze to death in the sea and sunk to the bottom of the ocean... Then he waited for her once died as he prophesied, as a little old lady in her bed, and they were reunited upon the ill-fated liner. Also The Fountain. Tom, throughout the ages, tries to awaken his dead soulmate Izzi by the Tree of Life.
