A Count-down Of The Top 5 Romantic Moments On Blu-Ray

A romanic scene is designed to make the heart yearn, the pulse race and the tears form. Whether it’s Bogart being the loveable rogue in Casablanca or Nicole Kidman singing her lungs out in Moulin Rouge here are the moments to make you swoon.

Top Five Romantic Scenes


Scene: ‘Here’s Looking At You Kid’

One of cinema’s all time classics comes to Blu-ray.
The unique chemistry between Humphrey
and Ingrid Bergman is the
stuff of Hollywood legend, and the careful restoration of the infamous goodbye
scene pays off as every stunning frame is accompanied by a painfully beautiful
score. Selfless romance at it’s very best.

Big Fish

Scene: The Circus Scene

“They say that when you meet the love of your life,
time stops” so begins the narrator in this scene as Ed (Ewan McGregor) first
sets his eyes on Sandra (Alison Lohman). Tim Burton’s depiction of this moment
really leaps off the screen and we see the whole circus freeze as McGregor
picks popcorn out of the air to get closer to Sandra. It’s visually impressive
and hopelessly romantic.

Scene: Jane And Jake Chat On The Garden Swing.

There’s something extremely romantic and honest
about the scene where Jane (Meryl Streep) and Jake (Alec Baldwin) sit on the
swing in her garden and admit where they went wrong in their marriage. Jane’s
beautiful house and garden and the California sky really help set the mood for
this tender scene.

Mamma Mia

Scene: The Winner Takes It All

Set against the gorgeous backdrop of a Greek slice
of paradise, this scene sees Donna (Meryl
) serenading Sam (Piers
) as she reminisces about their past relationship. Streep’s
exceptional vocal performance sounds incredible. This, combined with the pin
sharp image of the sun cascading across the Med is a perfect post-card moment.

Scene: Come What May

The performance, the romance, the high def Blu-ray
picture and uncompressed music unite in this wonderful scene from Baz Luhrmann’s masterpiece. As Nicole Kidman and a heart broken Ewan McGregor perform their sensuous
‘Come What May’ duet together, you can’t help but get goose bumps and sing

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
