Many people are prone to declaring that the best movies (or music for that matter) are those that came from their childhood or teenage years. That to me is just a personal opinion based more on their subjective feelings about the film or music and not on an objective assessment or observation.
Because, if one will really have to look at all these cultural mementos in a very openminded and objective perspective, then one will realize that there are great films that may be appreciated from every decade.
Or maybe, I’m just a film buff, and that’s why I regularly watch movies—old and new. That’s why I am not stuck in the cultural mementos of the past, because I never stopped from digging new films and new music.
My life is, for the most part, linear—not merely cyclical nor retrospective. I glimpse back to the past once in a while (of course), but I always move on and look forward to what’s yet to come.
Anyway, here are a dirty dozen of my recommended Romance films released in the 2000s.
Cast Away (2000)
Vanilla Sky (2001)
Danny Deckchair (2003)
13 Going on 30 (2004)
50 First Dates (2004)
Before Sunset (2004)
The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)
Employee of the Month (2006)
Music & Lyrics (2007)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
(500) Days of Summer (2009)
The Last Leaf
These are just 13 of the countess Romance films released in the 2000s that are worth your couple of hours’ attention. There are still so many more in the various genres!
