2. What We Do In The Shadows - This hilarious New Zealand movie about vampires share-flatting couldn’t be less Valentine’s related. You’ll laugh til you cry.
3. Guardians Of The Galaxy - One of the best films of 2014, the inkling of romance is amusingly dealt with in the line, “I am not some starry-eyed waif here to succumb to your... your pelvic sorcery!”
At the cinema
2. ‘Big Hero 6’ - Best family film out in a long time, ‘Big Hero 6’ has plenty for the adults to enjoy, and is a story all about the powers of friendship. Not to mention, it’s delightfully funny, and well worth seeing on a big screen.
3. The Interview - Crass humour and a ridiculous premise, ‘The Interview’ will surely cure you of any romantic thoughts.
4. Wild - If you’re in the mood for some introspective inspiration, Reese Witherspoon’s one-woman show will provide plenty of food for thought.
2. The Hundred Foot Journey - Helen Mirren stars in this film about finding love in unexpected places.
3. The Little Death - A funny, relatable story about sex, marriage and experimentation.
4. Magic in the Moonlight - Colin Firth falls for the woman he’s set out to discredit. But will she have him?
5. About Time - A sweet story about the choices we make, and what we’d do for more time with the ones we love.
6. Her - This film explores the possibilities of love beyond what we know now, and whether our creations will one day outgrow us.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey - We can’t have a Valentine's article without mentioning the behemoth that is ‘Fifty Shades’... however, I expect the film to be about as good as the book: Rubbish. This is a film that glorifies domestic abuse by disguising it as erotica (and not even good erotica at that). I wouldn’t even pay to see it just to heckle. There are better things to be doing with our time. Wash the dog. Clean your shower. Anything else.
