Valentine's Day Movie Ideas

Safe Haven - (February 14, 2013 release date) - When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love in this deeply moving romantic thriller.

Beautiful Creates - (February 14, 2013 release date) - A hauntingly intense, supernatural love story set in the South, the film follows two star-crossed teenage lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena (Alice Englert), who uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town.

Look of Love - A widow falls for a guy who bears a striking resemblance to her late husband.

Amour - Georges and Anne are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple's bond of love is severely tested.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. - A middle-aged husband's life changes dramatically when his wife asks him for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a newfound friend, Jacob, learning to pick up girls at bars.

Sanctum - James Cameron produced this movie and it isn't exactly your normal Valentine's Day fare (there's not even an interplanetary love story here). However, this film about a group of explorers that get lost in a cave system would make a great date movie for adventurous types (especially the guys that don't want to shell out the big bucks to take their thrill-seeking Valentine's Day dates to amusement parks).

The Roommate - A great Valentine's Day movies for dateless guys or a girl wanting to escape her crazy, dateless roommate whose Valentine's Day plans include crying alone while her dates Ben and Jerry try to console her. Last year's sexiest woman alive Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester will help make this movie about an obsessive and possessive roommate one of the sexiest of the year, but it looks a little bit thrilling and chilling as well.

Just Go with It - Adam Sandler stars as a guy who pretends to be married in order to pick up chicks. His ploy works out perfectly until he meets the girl of his dreams (Brooklyn Decker) and takes his ruse way too far, convincing his office assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his soon-to-be ex-wife. Nicole Kidman also co-stars, so there's plenty of eye candy for the guys. However, they might want to be careful taking dates to this one; with a guy like Adam Sandler getting all these hot chicks, it looks like it's aiming to appeal to male fans more than female.

Gnomeo and Juliet - Here's one of the best Valentine's Day movies of February for moms and dads that can't get babysitters. It's a cute-looking animated flick featuring garden gnomes playing out a version of Romeo and Juliet (hopefully minus the ending). Sure it sounds silly, but at least it's kid-friendly and Valentine's Day-themed.

The Eagle - This is one of the upcoming Valentine's Day movies that's got action for guys and eye candy for ladies as Channing Tatum portrays a Roman soldier on a quest to find out what happened to his father's missing Ninth Legion (it also looks like there's a bit of a bromance-turned-bad going on here in the trailer).
