Perhaps unlike any other romance film we’ve seen. Spike Jonze’s original and mesmerizing her hits the UK on Valentines Day having been released in the Us several weeks ago.

Joaquin Phoenix is Theodore, a lonely writer who starts falling in love with Samantha. However, Samantha happens to be the name of his recently purchased Operating System (OS1) Voiced by Scarlett Johansson, Samantha helps Theodore come to terms with his life, but how will they deal with the issue of falling in love with an artificially intelligent being?

An actual Rom-Com for you to enjoy with a loved-one.

Starring Zac Efron as one of three best friends who find themselves at that confusing moment in every relationship when you have to decide “So…where is this going?

Perhaps the easiest choice for a Valentines Day date-night, Zac Efron is usually a good choice for the ladies, while a strong comedy backbone makes it accessible to all.

lego movieSomething Different? The Lego Movie

 Perhaps not the typical date-movie for Vaentines day, however for anyone who grew up with or around Lego, this movie is sure to crack a smile.

A fantastically animated and well written movie, there’s plenty here for it to be enjoyed by people of all ages and could be an interesting change compared to the standard romance!

There is a little romance though, don’t worry.
