Valentines Day Contest!

hey! wanna win a $50 gift certificate to nokomis? it's easy! in honour of v-day, which is quickly approaching, just post (in the comments section) a clip of your favorite romantic scene from a movie. yup, that's all! you have all week to think of your favorite clip, and to post it. we'll be accepting entries until midnight on friday, evaluating all day saturday and posting the winner on sunday.

it doesn't have to be a traditional romantic scene, just something that knocks your socks off, makes you giggle, leaves butterflies in your stomach, or something of that nature. amelie is my favorite movie, and this is my favorite clip:



which might seem silly, it's the last scene, but they're so happy together! giggly and cute, and quirky together. it was a scene that always gave me hope, that even though my friends called me 'too-picky', i was just really holding out for my own nino. i love happy endings.

post away! and if you don't have a blogger account, make sure you leave your name or something so we can identify you! good luck, oh, and only one entry per person, s'il vous plait. xox.

I'm torn between clips from Pretty in Pink, Dirty Dancing, and Sex and the City too, but I think I'll commit to this one.

This clip is about all kinds of love, and the sacrifices people are willing to make for it. Tragic and beautiful...

Wait, what was the question?

Love, and Death. The Highest, and Lowest expressions of self.. This movie changed me.

I loved this one when I saw it. All the bickering and then the one moment of quiet. Ah, lasting love.

I might be breaking the rules because this clip is from The O.C., which is not a movie. But I get shivers every time I watch this scene of Ryan and Marissa on New Years Eve. I can't even count the times I wish something like this would happen to me!

Maybe it's because I grew up watching this movie, but I love it more and more every time I watch it.

I'm sad I couldn't find the clip of them laying on the ice and looking at the stars but this video sums up the movie well. I highly recommend you watch it!

@ sik.addixtion
