Every once in a while a romantic movie will come along that will just tug at everyone's heart strings due to having a great story and actors with excellent chemistry. We decided to compile a list of 16 movies that have all of these ingredients therefore everyone should see them! Take note of the ones you haven't watched for your next movie night.
1. Beyond The Lights (2014)
The people behind Love & Basketball are back with Beyond The Lights, a love story between a very successful, yet emotionally struggling singer Noni (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and a handsome man named Kaz (Nate Parker). Since Love & Basketball was so amazing we are definitely looking forward to this new romance!
2. The Artist (2011)
This romantic story is silent but powerful. Watch two performers, George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) and Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) try to navigate their careers during a time when movies were slowly moving out of the silent movie era.
3. West Side Story (1961)
This movie tells a great forbidden love story with excellent music and dancing. Although the story is mostly between Maria (Natalie Wood) and Tony (Richard Beymer), Anita (Rita Moreno) steals the show in her scenes.
4. Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
This creative movie tells a story of a young Jamal's (Dev Patel) life through flashbacks as he answers questions on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." A big part of his past is falling in love with Latika (Freido Pinto).

Prepare yourself emotionally to at least tear up. The story between Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) is heart breaking since they meet in a support group for cancer patients. Together they become each other's support and true love.
6. Sleepless In Seattle (1993)
Columbia Tristar Film
We couldn't leave our girl Meg Ryan from this list! In this film she plays Annie, a woman who falls for a widower (Tom Hanks) when he tells his sad story on the radio. This story is pretty crazy, but some of the greatest movie plots are based on crazy...
7. Grease (1978)
If you haven't seen Grease yet then what are you doing?! This musical stars Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and Danny (John Travolta), two high school kids who had a summer romance and get into a weird predicament when they end up going to the same school together. It's fun, it's dirty, and so darn catchy!
8. Casablanca (1943)
This classic will show the beauty of old Hollywood and the reason why Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart will forever be remembered. Their characters cross paths in Africa during World War II and are forced to reflect on their failed relationship.
9. Her (2013)
What would the future of relationships look like if Siri became a thousand times smarter? This movie answers that question with Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) falling in love with a operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson.
10. Titanic (1997)
Fox Baja Studios
This '90s blockbuster showcases Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet playing two characters who are from two completely different classes, but fall in love on the infamous Titanic ship.

This classic features a Southern woman named Scarlett (Vivien Leigh) who comes across a blockade runner (Clark Gabel) and have a passionate relationship during the Civil War.

13. Lars And The Real Girl (2007)
Metro Goldywn Mayer
Yeah, you might have fallen for Ryan Gosling while watching The Notebook, but it's time to branch out to his other work! In this indie film he plays Lars, a man who orders a doll and has a delusion that she is real and they are dating. The whole town ends up playing along pretending that she's real in order to help Lars.
14. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
You just can't go wrong with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper! This duo plays two very dysfunctional characters who cross paths after experiencing tragic endings to their past relationships. You will laugh and be drawn in by their riveting acting and script.
15. Forrest Gump (1994)
Tom Hanks has quite a few great movies in his resume and this one is certainly one of them. Forrest Gump shows a great portion of one man's life from grade school, college, fighting in a war, and so much more. One person that reappears in his life multiple times is Jenny (Robin Wright).
16. The Princess Bride (1987)
Act III Communications
If you're in the mood for a fairytale then tune into this last pick! The movie has a grandfather (Peter Falk) reading a story to his grandson (Fred Savage) that features a princess (Robin Wright), giants, and so much more.

After 8 seasons, Dexter has finally come to a close. The series has definitely had its ups and downs, and Sunday’s series finale was polarizing at best (did he head up north to start a hipster grunge band or what?)
The series has had a long run, and regardless of what people may think of the series going out the way it did, Dexter still stands as a great show which gave us many moments that made us clutch our pearls. Here are 10 of the most shocking moments from the series (spoilers ahead!).
The Ice Truck Killer is… who?! Dexter’s first season is totally one of the series’ best, perhaps because it stayed the most true to the novel the show is based on, Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter. We were hooked from the first episode, after watching the meticulousness of Dexter’s first kill, but the rest of the season had one of the craziest serial killers of the series – the Ice Truck Killer – who mysteriously knew everything about Dexter. As the season drew to a close, we found out that the Ice Truck Killer was no other than Dexter’s biological brother(!) and their showdown that clarified Dexter’s traumatic past was both heartbreaking and terrifying.
Lila Tourney is a legit psycho We all knew that Lila was shady as hell from the first time we saw her, but the full extent of Lila’s craziness didn’t come into play until the season went on. Basically, Lila + fire = OMGWTF. It was one thing to burn down her own artwork just because she was attention-deprived, but burning her place down with Dexter and Rita’s kids inside? Killing Sergeant Doakes by burning down the cabin? Lila was so unique in her craziness that Dexter made a special trip to Paris just to finish her off.
Sergeant Doakes has the worst luck in the world Speaking of the ever-lovable Doakes, it was bad enough that he was the only one who knew there was something off about Dexter (even Dexter found it surprising that no one else got bad vibes from him). Nobody believed him, and things just got worse after Dexter framed him for being the Bay Harbor Butcher. Doakes finally caught up to him, but the always-prepared Dexter locked him up in a cage (literally). The most heart-breaking part about Doakes’ death was that he had managed to get out of his cage – twice. The first time, he was captured and taken back by drug dealers, and the second time he was too late, escaping just in time for the cabin to blow up. It really seemed like Doakes had a chance, but this arc was the first to show that good people don’t get good endings in Dexter.
Dexter, family man The moment that Dexter found out that Rita was pregnant, he was probably just as surprised as the rest of the world. It was a shocking revelation, and one that left audiences wondering about what this would mean. How could Dexter be a father? Will his son be a sociopath as well? What was even more shocking was that though little Harrison was never around at the most convenient times (thanks Jamie, you’re the best babysitter in the world), when he was, Dexter surprisingly proved himself to be a very loving father.
Dex, Lumen, plastic sheets, and Deb In one of the tensest scenes of the series, Dexter and Lumen finally kill Jordan Chase, one of the men who had tortured Lumen and numerous other women. At the worst moment ever, Debra walked in and we finally thought that this was the moment that she would find out about Dexter. Luckily for Dex and Lumen, though, they were hidden behind plastic sheets (how poetic) and Deb couldn’t see their faces. Deb knew that they were the killers and instead of arresting them, gave them a warning that the police were coming and left...and then we all finally breathed.
Deb’s down and Lundy’s dead Mr. Trinity Killer sure didn’t do a good job raising his kids. Christine Hill, a journalist from the Miami Tribune, gets involved with Joey Quinn for the sole reason to squeeze classified case information out of him. It was shocking enough to see Deb and Frank Lundy get shot out of nowhere, but finding out that it was Christine who killed them because she was the Trinity Killer’s first daughter was jaw-droppingly surprising.
Rita’s death Hands-down the most shocking moment in the series was Dexter coming home to find Rita, longtime partner and mother of his child, dead in a bathtub filled with her blood. Rita was completely innocent and was murdered by the Trinity Killer in his one last attempt to get back at Dexter. Dexter’s shock is palpable and the entire scene of him finding Rita is one of the most heartbreaking moments in the whole series.
Deb finds out about Dexter It took 6 seasons, but Deb finally found out what her brother really was. After going to the church which Travis Marshall used as his crazy-religious-stuff headquarters, Deb saw Dexter kill Travis, Bay Harbor Butcher style, right in front of her eyes. The 7th season showed Deb grappling with the fact that her brother was a serial killer, and Dexter’s admissions were both refreshing and terrifying to hear. Looking back now, Deb finding out about Dexter was really the beginning of the end for her, making the moment she found out all the more poignant.
Deb kills LaGuerta Maria LaGuerta was no saint, but whatever she was, she wasn’t a cold-blooded murderer. Once again showing up at the most inopportune times for Dexter, Deb walked into Dex’s infamous shipping container to find him with a dead Estrada and a kidnapped LaGuerta. Deb pulled out her gun and frantically waved it between LaGuerta and Dexter, clearly not knowing what to do. LaGuerta eventually awoke from her Dex-induced drug haze and told Deb to shoot her brother, who told her “It’s ok. Do what you gotta do.” Deb finally turns to Dexter and we think that she’ll shoot him, but she chooses to take down LaGuerta instead.
Goodbye, Debra Sunday’s series finale left a lot of questions unanswered and many heads scratching, but you have to admit – out of all the speculations about the finale, no one guessed that Dex would end up becoming a lumberjack. Still, though, it was surprising and heartwrenching to see what happened with Deb. After being shot by Saxon, Deb was taken to the hospital where her recovery seemed to be going well at first. All of a sudden, though, she got complications from surgery and suffered a stroke, which left her on life support and essentially a vegetable. Not wanting her to live her life that way, Dexter shut off Deb's life support and took her out on his boat, dropping her off in the middle of the ocean – his last victim. Deb was the heart and soul of the series, so watching her go was tough to see.

As Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya Rivera has a habit of keeping it real by being brutally honest, and it seems as if she's carried that philsophy over to her solo album. Rivera released her first single, "Sorry," along with a lyric video on Tuesday and recruited her boyfriend, rapper Big Sean, to feature on the track. But what, exactly, is Rivera apologizing for? Well, for not being sorry that she stole someone's boyfriend.
The song is written as a brush-off to her boy's ex-girlfriend, who seems understandably upset that Rivera has unapologetically stolen him away from her. After establishing that she's just so hot that this guy couldn't resist, Rivera gets downright mean in the second verse, where she tells the ex-girlfriend that she's "looking like a hot mess, honey/I think it's time for you to cut it out/trying to keep you from looking funny/I guess until you find somebody/you're a hashtagging pity party." Ouch. And that's before Big Sean rubs some salt in the wound by rapping about how much he loves his new girl. Remind us to never get on Rivera's bad side.
Thanks in part to a pop/R&B hybrid production that suits Rivera's voice perfectly, the song itself is incredibly catchy — which would be great if it weren't so problematic. Because bragging about how you're not sorry that you've stolen someone's boyfriend and layering that non-apology with a liberal amount of insults seems downright catty and — dare we say it — rather anti-feminist. Granted, everyone's felt a little mean and petty once or twice in their lives, and Rivera never claimed to be a bastion of feminism, but at the end of the day, do we really need something else that perpetuates the stereotype of women as constantly fighting with one another?
If you're in a particularly catty mood yourself, you can check out the NSFW lyric video below.

Bridging the world between horror and comedy the new web series Ghost Ghirls finds humor in the ghouslish. The show, executive produced by Jack Black and premiering on Yahoo! September 9th, stars Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci as two hapless paranormal investigators.
Hollywood.com was lucky enough to commune with Lund and Blasucci about how Ghost Ghirls came about, whether they believe in the supernatural, and how they managed to get so many famous faces to haunt the online series.
How did the idea for Ghost Ghirls originate?Lund: Maria and I had been wanting to work with Jeremy Konner on a project for a while. We are all fans of the paranormal genre and thought it would be interesting to see these characters within it.
Blasucci: So the three of us wrote up a little ten page script and went out and shot it. It is so much fun writing for these characters.
How did Jack Black get involved in the project? What was it like working with him?Blasucci: Jeremy had known Jack Black for a while having worked as his assistant and the director of the Tenacious D documentary. Jack has always been really supportive of Jeremy and as soon as we brought it to him, Jack jumped onboard. Working with him was an absolute dream. He is the nicest and most caring guy.
Lund: Working with him was unreal! He has been so supportive. He showed up to set almost everyday while we were filming and called in a bunch of his famous pals to play parts. Really, I've learned so much by working with Jack Black. His enthusiasm and positivity are really contagious. We lucked out. Who was your favorite celebrity guest star to work with?Lund: This is tough! We had so many amazing people! It was pretty mind-blowing to work with Val Kilmer. Having Val, Dave Grohl and Jack Black on set all at once was like a beautiful dream I didn't want to wake up from. I think we shot like a 16 hour day when they were all there but no one cared because it was so amazing to watch them jam. (They were playing a Southern Rock Band). That was the most magical moment of filming.
Blasucci: All of the guest stars were so gracious and wonderful. Molly Shannon was really lovely and hilarious and Bob Odenkirk brought so much life to his character. He made the character so much richer than we could have imagined. I do love working with Jason Ritter. He did our pilot presentation and is in another episode as well. Having him and Jason Schwartzman on set was hilarious.
What was it like taking the show to San Diego Comic Con?Lund : I had never been to Comic Con and didn't know what to expect! I couldn't believe that so many people came out to see our panel. I think we got a really good response actually. I feel like the Comic Con audience is really open and enthusiastic when it comes to new shows so it was cool to hear some positive feedback. I wish I had brought a costume to wear because I felt so stupid in my shorts when everyone else was in sweet capes and stuff.
Blasucci: I agree with everything Amanda said... except she wasn't wearing shorts. That was a lie. Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen a ghost?Lund: I've had a few seemingly paranormal experiences. When I was nine I thought I saw the ghost of my grandpa coming out of my bedroom ceiling. However, I had an extremely active imagination. I had like a dozen imaginary friends as well and had a lot of strange conspiracytheories.
Blasucci: I believe in ghosts. Why not, right? It's more fun to believe. I've never seen one though. I'm afraid of seeing one.
I'm going to steal a line from Scream: What's your favorite scary movie?Blasucci: I'm going to steal from your question and say Scream.
Lund: I love scary movies! I'm drawn toward the classic, slow-burning ones like Rosemary's Baby or The Omen. But don't get me wrong, the Scream films and I Know What You Did Last Summer are close to my heart. Why should viewers be excited to watch? Lund: Because Ghost Ghirls has something for everyone! It's funny...it's scary...it's full of amazing guest stars! And it's short and free! Blasucci: We find it to be a really entertaining show with a lot of heart. So check it out!

The frigid months to come will see our friends at NBC spending a good amount of time overseas — before trekking over to Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics, the Peacock is making a quick stop in the Swiss Alps (or, at the very least, a network studio designed to look like the Swiss Alps) for a live production of The Sound of Music. But team figure skating (the Olympics' newest event) and singing convents will take a backseat to NBC's most anticipated addition: Jimmy Fallon as the host of The Tonight Show.
During its upfront presentation on Monday, NBC informed attendees that Fallon would be taking Jay Leno's seat during revealed the date during the network's broadcast of the Winter Olympics, stepping in during the second week of the international games (the Olympics kick off on Feb. 7; Fallon should take the reigns on Feb. 14). Following the conclusion of the dynamic tradition, Fallon will assume the regular 11:35 PM time slot permanently — as the Olympics is often cause for schedule shifting, leaving the Tonight Show broadcast times for the week rather nebulous at this time — on Monday, Feb 24, 2014. At this time, Fallon's fellow Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers will also step in as the official host of Late Night, airing at 12:35 AM.
NBC also revealed the planned broadcast date of its previously announced live production of The Sound of Music, a performance of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical (first immortalized on the big screen by Julie Andrews) starring Carrie Underwood as Maria von Trapp. The 3-hour special will air Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013.
Alongside talks of Fallon's and Meyers' promotions, and the musical production, NBC also shared a handful of comedic and dramatic trailers for upcoming programs. Check them out here.

Even at his subtlest, Lars von Trier can't avoid his provocative instincts. Today's evidence: the first poster for his near-pornographic double feature Nymphomaniac. What do you see in the below image? Clearly von Trier's Melancholia follow-up will be a definitive exploration of proper grammatical bracketing. Right? Okay, maybe not.
Little is known about von Trier's two films in the way of plot, but from the beginning of the casting process, Nymphomaniac was making headlines for its promise of explicit (read: not simulated) sex scenes featuring well known actors. The cast includes Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Willem Dafoe and Connie Nielsen and, due to the artistically raunchy material, the two feature-length films will be released in both soft and hardcore versions.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke to the posters designers, Phillip Einstein Lipski and Maria Biilmann, who tried to “distill the intimacy and the obscenity of the film down to its simplest form. A form we hope will engage the audience in the universe of Nymphomaniac– one sexy piece of artwork at a time." So as far as building buzz for the films, think of this poster as foreplay.
Von Trier's Nymphomanaic Part 1 is expected to debut at a festival in the Fall with a proper release to follow. He won't be at the Cannes Film Festival this May — the filmmaker was notoriously banned after making pro-Nazi jokes at a Melancholia press conference in 2011, although von Trier insists that Nymphomanaic was not ready in time for the festival dates. Nonetheless, von Trier's sexploitation picture is on its way. Expect Part 1 to climax sometime before year's end.

While the past couple of years have seen Maria Shriver at the center of a high profile personal controversy, we remember the half-Kennedy for her onscreen work as a voice of progress. Back during her days with NBC, Shriver oversaw coverage of the 1988 Summer Olympics, co-anchored the network's Sunday Today, and produced the Award-winning The Alzheimer's Project. And now, Shriver returns to her peacockian stomping grounds with a ne righteous endeavor: the television journalist confirms via her blog that she will be taking a position as a special anchor on Today, focusing on women's issues.
Shriver asserts that she will be "working across multiple NBCUniversal properties and NBC News programs" and "be serving as an Editor at Large for women's issues across the NBC News Digital properties, working with the teams to expand on editorial content and news programming that touches on women's multi-faceted lives."
This new facet of Today will include profiles of "Architects of Change," which Shriver describes as "groundbreaking women and men who are pushing the boundaries of society, technology, media, science, business, faith and politics." Shriver and her new endeavors will be a welcome addition to the Today formula.

After what felt like the longest week in American history, the nation breathed a sigh of relief and applauded Boston law enforcement officials, as the manhunt for Boston bombings suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev was captured on Friday night. (Well, according to a Fox affiliate, it was actress Zooey Deschanel, pictured, to which the New Girl actress reacted on Twitter, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!").
For better or worse, Twitter was the place that so many people went to share information (and misinformation), air their grievances, or even crack a joke during this week's horror and hysteria. But, with the exception of humanity troll Donald Trump, there was a universal mood on the social media site when the news broke that Tsarnaev was in custody: elation and appreciation.
Celebrities — many with ties to the Boston area (including Joey McIntyre, who finished the race on Monday just moments before the explosions) that dealt with a terrible tragedy that took the lives of three and injured dozens during the marathon bombings, the fatal shooting of an M.I.T. police officer, an intense manhunt, and a lock down within the span of just five days —once again took to Twitter, this time to celebrate, at long last, something good.
Here are some of the best responses on Twitter out of Hollywood to the big news.
