The movie Baz Luhrmann was born to make, his reinterpretation of the star-crossed lovers is outlandish and fabulously spectacular. Young love, rebellion, beautiful stars and verse preambled violence make this classic anew.

Brought together by strange circumstances but finding happiness that can even overcome the misery of poverty. One of the most potent love stories I have seen.

Slow West (2015)


Sometimes love is one-side, stupid and you find your heart in the wrong place but it's the spirit of love that makes it so beautiful. To love one who does not love you unconditionally, to the denial and detriment of one's self.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 232 Average listal rating (148 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.5


Rebellious youth starved for adventure and each-other.
This celluloid dream captures the essence of young and summer love, so fleeting and yet so consequential. If you never experienced, you can always imagine and live vicariously through this movie.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 56 Average listal rating (35 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8
My Love (2007)



A poetic realism intertwined with class difference and religious attitudes. My Love probes human desire, unrequited love and the assumptions we make about another when we are enamored with the beautiful idea of them.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 1129 Average listal rating (680 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 7.8
Breathless (1960)

'All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun.'
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 124 Average listal rating (65 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.6


Love, cinema and music. What more could you want you greedy so and so.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 21 Average listal rating (13 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.3

Based solely on greed and lust.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 3191 Average listal rating (2091 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.2




Love that exists despite curses and outward appearance. Howl's Moving Castle evokes a childlike desire for romance, danger and adventure in it's audience. Heavy stuff baby. When Sofie says "It's wonderful Hal," I could just die.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 77 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 6.9
Gabbeh (1996)


Full of poetry and color, she searches for her wolf man on the wind. A love story so unique. The passion for another so strong but hunted from a distance kept at bay by the gun of a father who does not want to lose his daughter.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 730 Average listal rating (403 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.5
Buffalo '66 (1998)

Who knew you could just kidnap your way into a loving relationship? Oh, the things you learn from film.
PulpRoman's rating:



Self-denying attraction, adventure, aliens, young love...Cara Delevingne. Yep, you got me babe.

People who added this item 4983 Average listal rating (3541 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7


The adult version of the above,oh Besson you hopeless romantic. Leeloo is adorable and mega fierce while hard man Korben Dallas shows his more sensitive side when it comes to this girl who is more than meets the eye.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 77 Average listal rating (41 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
Omar (2013)


Love in a war zone. Further complicated by lies and cultural traditions (regarding courting and marriage) that make their union more difficult than scaling a wall dividing Israel and Palestine.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 871 Average listal rating (496 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8
3-Iron (2004)

PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 745 Average listal rating (485 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.4


Awkward, funny and hot. The casting for the leads is perfectly suited.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 59 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7
Breezy (1974)


A case of opposite personalities attracting, with an older male and younger female. One being a hippy and the other a stiff businessman. We see how society frowns upon their union and how they might succumb to the pressures to break it off. I also love the beautiful and free spirited Breezy, great character.

How can you love someone you keep forgetting?

Benny & Joon (1993)


The pair couldn't be any cuter but the barriers to their love make it a compelling romance. A mixture of witticism and lurking mental health problems craft this eccentric love story.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 1455 Average listal rating (915 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.3

It's always nice seeing the weird guy finding that one who is understanding and might be just as quirky as him. Getting out of your own way and disregarding other people's opinions resonates in this love tale.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 275 Average listal rating (153 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1


Love in deep-shit, can it survive? Love that is destroying them both. Do they love the drugs more then each-other?...Young Al is also one of my favourite things.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 228 Average listal rating (143 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.2
Fences (2016)


Love that has been through so so many trails. August says it best...
Don't you think I ever wanted other things? Don't you think I had dreams and hopes? What about my life? What about me. Don't you think it ever crossed my mind to want to know other men? That I wanted to lay up somewhere and forget about my responsibilities? That I wanted someone to make me laugh so I could feel good? You not the only one who's got wants and needs. But I held on to you, Troy. I took all my feelings, my wants and needs, my dreams...and I buried them inside you. I planted myself inside you and waited to bloom. And it didn't take me no eighteen years to find out the soil was hard and rocky and it wasn't never gonna bloom.

When San feeds Ashitaka oh my gosh!
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 1666 Average listal rating (1114 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.8


A romance at summer camp between the self sufficient orphan and the brilliant girl in a dysfunctional family. The ones who want to separate them? Those nasty adults with their emotionally blunted experiences of growing up. Carved in the idiosyncratic world of Wes Anderson, Moonrise Kingdom attempts to preserve first love's youthful naivety against the opposition of grown up society and their conventions just as Scout Master Ward still dresses in his full uniform.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 935 Average listal rating (567 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.1


Love in the modern world. Can we keep pace with each-other, ourselves? Splashed with neon lights, sixties music, great dialogue and acting that displays the angst of living, loving and not being able to communicate with another. All against the brackish current of time, work, coincidence, the past, aspirations,being human and the realities that contradict your dreams or ideals...

PulpRoman's rating:

Loving someone you cannot touch and having them even for a moment means they will die. Into the Forest of Fireflies' Light intertwines aging and immorality, fragility and endurance, and love between beings not even within the same realm of reality.
PulpRoman's rating:
People who added this item 202 Average listal rating (117 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9

Ninja lovers from opposite clans, a Romeo and Juliet type of tale but they can and are sworn to kill each-other.

Equals (2016)


Love in a society that outlaws emotion through suppressive medication.

A wife so supportive but willing to call her husband out on his bullshit!

A few cigars, beers and a little cross-dressing to remove all inhibitions.

Teenage Splendour

Romances I liked when I was younger. I'm sure there are a lot more cheesy romances from this time that I can't remember, especially on Disney.
