Favourite Film Kisses

23 August 2019



Hello Readers & Friends,

I have a super fun post for you today.
I love YA romances, because I love the nostalgia it brings me. Romance isn't like this any more - I don't know if it's because as we get older we get cynical and don't enjoy the excitement any more?
I can remember all the feelings of being a teenager and fancying a boy so clearly, it was such a fun exciting time. Getting ready for a party with your friends and hoping they would speak to you, discussing who fancies who, worrying about a kiss for weeks and weeks... everything about it is so innocent and calculated and cute and special. When they would lend you a jumper you'd feel on top of the world.

I picked up It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne at random, not expecting much. It's amazing. I'm close to finishing but I love it - full review to come. I love how it's completely a cliche YA romance whilst having a main character who is so self-aware that she's a cliche, who hates romance and all the ideals of it and wants something more meaningful than all those stupid teenage flirty things. It's been great. Anyway, in part of the book she analyses all the best film kisses of all time, and this got me thinking. What are mine?

So, here we go. My top favourite film kisses.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before.

I will never not ship LJ Covey and Peter Kavinsky and this whole scene is perfect. "You gonna break my heart, Covey?" SHE'D BETTER NOT!




The Mortal Instruments

I love when film couples become real-life couples because it makes their romance scenes feel more special and real. Needless to say, Jamie CB made the character of Jace for me in The Mortal Instruments and this kiss with Lily was almost ruined by terrible flower CGI's but I still like it a lot. It's so cheesy and tacky and lame but I just like it because of the actors and the fact it's at least a little bit real.




After

I'm such a creep these children are only 21 but I don't care I like this kiss scene and I like his face and I like her face. HOWEVER, I hate the fact he says 'we can't just be friends' when he met her exactly 0.4 seconds ago.




After

Another Lily Collins film I'm obviously obssessed with her. I cried my eyes out watching Love, Rosie but this ending was great, especially after such a long and frustrating build up between this couple.




The Notebook

Obviously this kiss is the best in cinematic history. We all know the one I mean, by the boat and the crying and the "I wrote you every day for 365 days" scene. So I'm not sharing that. Instead I'll share their recreating at the MTV Awards, because it's just as great. Also, they dated in real life too. Also, Lindsey Lohan's reaction.



The First Time

The most underrated teen romace in the history of teen romances. Love Britt's character and everything about how this film goes. It's so authentic to teenage life I love it.



Titanic

Does it get any more classic than this?



Dear John

Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, heavy rain, everything cliche is just great. I loved this couple. Hated the ending, needless to say lol.



Gossip Girl

Okay, I'm cheating. I know this isn't a film but surely this is the moment all Gossip Girl fans were waiting for? And it was great. Serena and Dan know nothing.



What are your favourite movie kisses?

Love,
Cx
