Hable con ella -- but for reasons that would horrify typical romcom fans.

How many of the listed films are "romcoms"?

Shortbus It showed that love could exist in non-traditional ways, even among damaged people, and still be powerful and life-giving at the core.

Lost in Translation is one of my favorite films of all-time.

True but I'm not quite sure Almodovar would go over well with the Jennifer Anuston/Lopez crowd.

For the record, If Beale Street Could Talk would be my vote. It almost immediately became one of my favorite films of all time.

Weird choice of romance films for the poll. I didn't like this movie, but I would expext "The Notebook" to be named on the list; maybe also, "The Fault in the Stars".

The poll is the top 10 based on RT scores. The OP has a link to the top 100, which the last one is at 92%. The Notebook is at 53%, so it's not even close.

Re: Facebook Poll: What's the Best Romance Film of the 21st Century?

Romance as a genre doesn't greatly appeal to me. I've seen 26/100 of that Rotten Tomatoes list, and most of what I have seen are movies like Hamlet where the romance isn't the main focus. And then Mrs Danger is strongly opposed to watching romance movies. I recently had to talk her into watching Lost in Translation with me, because the cover description made it look like a romance.

We don't watch a lot of romance movies in our house.

Since I've only seen two movies of that poll, I would have to go with Lost in Translation.

My pick is KIMI NO NA WA (released in the U.S. as YOUR NAME), which was the highest grossing film in Japan in 2016 and the second highest grossing Japanese film in Japan ever (topped only by SPIRITED AWAY). It's a high school romance with a dream/time-travel/body-switching theme.

I'm gonna cheat as the movie isn't entirely about the couple but Carl & Ellie's relationship in Up is hands down the most beautiful relationship of the 21st Century.

As long as we're cheating, I'm going to vote for the Black Mirror season 3 episode "San Junipero." Beautiful and sad and heartbreaking and uplifting.
