One of the most popular genres in all of the American movies is Love movies. In fact, the term “love movie” is often used as a collective term to describe any romantic comedy or romantic drama of the movie genre. These types of movies are generally very memorable and deliver big entertainment value.
The love movies delivered big profits for the studios that churned them out, but at the same time created a huge problem for the American movie industry. The blockbuster smash “Election” was one of the biggest flops of the entire decade, but it became the poster film for the whole concept of over-commercialization. Movie franchises became untenable because of the huge expenses associated with creating movies, and the “money making” opportunities for the studio corporate were diminished as a result. This resulted in a whole new era of smaller independent films that were more personal in nature.
The advent and proliferation of cable television brought a new love movie genre of its own. Many of the old horror movies that were popular on TV during the 1950s had been re-done in high definition in order to be available in high definition. High definition is an upgrade of the standard DVD format, and offers an almost true color image. High def has opened up the possibility of bringing old favorites to new generations. It’s a great way to enjoy those old movies again in a whole new way. Although many people still associate viewing a movie in the “box” with popcorn and soda, with the advances in technology, you can enjoy a modern love movie in the comfort of your home.
There are many types of movies available in this day and age that fall into the love movie genre. Some of the favorites include “psycho” (based on the true story of psychiatrist and psychologist Dr. Philip Zimbardo), “A Few Good Men” ( starring Steve Martin and directed by Martin Scorsese), “The Game” (also starring Steve Martin and directed by none other than Clint Eastwood), and ” Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (E.L. James). If you’re looking for something more contemporary, then there is another type of love movie to choose from as well, in the form of the “comedies.” These are movies such as “The Hangover” and “The Blind Side.” These two movies (and others like them) have become some of the highest grossing movies of all time, proving that comedies can be just as enjoyable and even more educational than serious dramas.
Other movies in the love movie genre are meant to be a great romantic comedy, such as ” Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” Meet the Parents.” Both of these movies star Robert DeNiro and Meg Ryan, and are popular with families as well as those looking for a lighthearted romantic comedy. The romance in these movies often centers around a common theme, such as a boy who falls in love with a girl he meets in college, or a young woman who falls head over heels in love with a much older man.
There are many different genres of love movies to choose from. Once you begin to narrow down the types of movies that you enjoy, it will be easier to find the one that is perfect for you and your loved one. Remember to stay away from romantic comedies if you are a man, and choose something different if you are a woman. You will be glad that you took the time to discover all of the different choices.
