Have you watched World War Z? I saw this a few days ago. Not really a zombie movie watcher myself, but I like PA films. This has lots of superb action and the zombies are convincing, not just drooley. Not quite the ticket for Valentine's night, but it is Friday the 13th today, so perhaps a disaster movie is in order.

Can't say I'm a big romance fan but if you haven't seen it, I strongly recommend Moulin Rouge.

That makes two KUF members who have eschewed romance! One day of the year?    [Image: smiley-love065.gif] 

Moulin Rouge does look like a good film. It is now on my list.

No, I won't watch anything with zombies in it either! No wonder I go to the cinema so rarely (the last time I went was to see 'Lincoln') and keep watching the same movies again and again on tv! Thanks though Daphne - hope you'll find something suitable to see.

World War Z is a much better movie than the book (I'd say the same about The English patient and Life of Pi - I couldn't get on with either novel),

But if you want some zombie romance (zomance?), I'd definitely recommend Warm Bodies (but in this case the book is even better than the film)

I seem to have missed this one, and it does look interesting. - Thanks.
One of my favourite films ever. If you fancy this, make sure you watch the full version (almost 4 hours) and be warned it's uncomfortably violent in parts. I watched it again on Blu-Ray recently. I knew what was coming but it still made me cry.

Another non-romance person here. The only soppy film I've watched - but ages ago - is Sleepless in Seattle. But Moulin Rouge is good.

We watched Half a Sixpence last weekend - it's a brilliant old film with some stonking songs in it. I'm not a musicals fan, but this was great.

Something a bit different...

I'm in the middle of Amour - a French film featuring an elderly couple who love each other dearly despite the wife's worsening health. It's beautiful, sad and moving.
