The latest subject of Make Me Watch It is In the Mood for Love (2000), directed by Wong Kar-Wai. The updated and maintained list of options for “Make Me Watch It” can be found here. You can name up to ten movies you’d like me to cover here. The series can also be found on Stitcher, on iTunes, or in a direct RSS feed.
Did you watch About Time? Because if you want a romcom with scifi themes, that’s the one.
That got mentioned on a random podcast and I watched it with my wife. It was excellent, but while it had a romance, I am not sure that was the movie’s focus. Still, my wife hates RomComs, but enjoyed that movie.
There are a number of such films– some of which we’ve reviewed here (though I don’t think anyone’s done that particular one). Maybe next Valentines Day we could count down top SF/Fantasy Romances.
I love this idea! RomComs for Bureaucrats!
I enjoyed About Time, and for some reason the wife and I also both enjoyed Simply Irresistible, thought it only have the most tenuous claim to a fantasy movie. In Time could also rate a review in that group. We watched Just Like Heaven, too, that could go in the group, though I don’t think she was as happy with it since she just yelled at me because I made her sit through it about a decade ago.
