Pick your movie of the week: Greatest Movie Couple! (Feb 3-9/17)

movie-couplesI thought I’d do the Valentine’s Day thing early this year, mainly because it’s the one holiday that I despise the trappings and therefore don’t like to add to it. During V-Day week I’ll have a totally unrelated theme. 🙂

And this week we’re doing things differently. Below are movies with 8 of the most iconic movie couples and you get to pick 2. Here they are in no particular order:

Gone with the Wind (1939, Scarlett and Rhett)
Titanic (1997, Jack and Rose)
When Harry Met Sally… (1989, Harry and Sally)
Grease (1978, Sandy and Danny)
Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980, Han and Leia)
Dirty Dancing (1987, Baby and Johnny)
Casablanca (1942, Rick and Ilsa)
The Princess Bride (1987, Buttercup and Westley)

(For the record, my favourites aren’t nominated: Jerry and Dorothy (Jerry Maguire, 1996), Jesse and Céline (Before Sunrise, 1995; Before Sunset, 2004, Before Midnight, 2013), Rocky and Adrian (Rocky, 1976).

  1. Well the first one is easy. Buttercup and Wesley since they are the only ones on the list that had true love that would follow them forever. For number 2 I eliminated Titanic because if she really loved him she would have taken turns on the piece of wood. I don’t give a damn about Gone with the wind so I’m going to have to pick Baby and Johnny as they looked like they were having the time of their lives. Plus Johnny was a great Chippendales dancer.
