So, my friend James had a great idea for Valentine’s Week to do a post on your favorite movie couples and he graciously let me steal the idea! So, today I’m going to just quickly highlight some of my top favorite movie couples.
Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger. I can’t do this list without the tragic love story of Steve and Peggy. I still get upset that they were separated forever and I hate the idea of a future movie putting Steve with someone else. Just. No. I wish they had a happily ever after.
Tony Stark and Pepper Potts from the various movies including Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. No list can go without the billionaire playboy and his girl. I’m not sure how to explain why I like this couple so much. They’ve just had several movies for their relationship to reasonable grow. I really like both of these character–Pepper is pretty much my favorite Marvel woman ever and Tony is my second favorite Avenger…. so, I just really like these two. I’m dying to see what happens to them in Iron Man 3.
Peter Parker and Gwen Stacey from The Amazing Spider-Man. I love this couple so much; they are way better then the ridicoulous unblanced rather unhealthy relationship in the former Spider-Man trilogy of Peter and MJ. At least in this movie, they become a couple sooner then later and Peter actually is honest with Gwen instead of keeping his Spider-Man secret from her like he did for two movies in the last trilogy. And they’re so cute together.
Han Solo and Princess Leia from the Original Star Wars Trilogy. HOW DO I DO THIS POST WITHOUT HAN AND LEIA?! They’re nearly the ultimate movie couple. The growth of their relationship and love throughout the three movies make for a well developed romance and ‘ultimate couple’ where you reach the end of the last movie and you know they will be together forever. They have some great banter and one of the most memorable love line in film histroy: “I love you” “I know”
Sam Witwicky and Mikaele Banes from Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. They’re a super cute couple and I wish their relationship could have continued in the third movie. It was fun watching Sam trying to win her affection throughout the first movie. The second movie’s ending left me thinking, “Okay, quick, before something else happens that might separate you two adorables for life, get to a church and get married! Quick! AHHH!” But it was for not. Anyway, they’re are still one of my favorite film couples.
Rocky Balboa and Adrian Pennino from The Rocky Series. Rocky and Adrian’s beautiful romance and then marriage really stood out to me. Rocky left a high standard bar for me in a lot of areas of what a man should be like, but speaking specifically with romance, he really left an impression that I will want to see if a man comes for me. Rocky, for as rough and tough as he looks and sounds and fights, really has a soft heart. As he was pretty unsuccessfully trying to court shy Adrian in the first film, he was very kind, very gentle, very loving. He pursued her even when she seemed to not like him. He never gave up on her. He loved her in a real way. Considering I have not seen love like this very much in real life, this part of his character really touched me because this wasn’t fake ‘fallen in love at first sight’ type of love. It was a real example of realistic love. So Rocky and Adrian’s romance one of my very favorite romances ever and set an example to me for what real love looks like. Gosh, I need to move on or I’m going to tear up.
Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. I have a lot of nostalgia attached to this movie and it’s pretty much my most favorite Disney movie ever. I love everything about this romance, and I love Belle and I love how the Beast changes and the ending makes me cry every time AND I NEVER CRY FOR MOVIES and they’re just one of my favorites.
And last but not least, I adore Mickey and Minnie. Because how can you not.
So, Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, I hope you have a good day with your family and loved ones! And if you have time, check out James’ list of favorite movie couples if you have time! 🙂
