That Magical, Never-ending Date
When you stay up roaming the streets until the wee hours of the morning with that special someone, it feels like a lifetime.

In a time when getting a quick cup of coffee counts as a date, it feels impossible to connect with someone on such a deep level that you don’t notice the hours fly by, until the sun rises and you realize it's time for a second date a.k.a. breakfast. But it does happen, in some form or another, judging by all the movies about that one special night. (Parts of these films have to be based on some truths, right?) While strange or random circumstances might have pushed these characters together, they all had the choice to cut the night short, but they all chose to see it through. Even though they had no idea what would happen when their little bubble bursts, they all felt like they were out with someone who was worth the effort, and isn't that already more than what most people can ask for?

Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong

The characters: He's a banker who has no time to write his novel; she's a toy creator who would rather design clothes.

Watch this if you: feel like third wheeling with real-life and super cute couple Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, which is so alive in this movie, it feels like a third character.

Quote to remember:

"You've got to suck it up. You've got to stop being a wuss. I mean, when are you 100% ever ready to do anything?"

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

The characters: He's a bassist in a punk band and totally hung up on his ex; she is a straight-edge girl with music in her veins and is also his ex’s frenemy.

Watch this if you: believe in musical soul mates and that "the mosh pit will reveal all the answers; the mosh pit never lies."

Quote to remember:

"The Beatles, they had it all figured out, okay? 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'—their first single. It's effing brilliant, right? That's what everybody wants, Nicky. They don't want a 24-hour hump sesh; they don't want to be married to you for a hundred years. They just want to hold your hand."

Before We Go

The characters: She's desperate to find a way home after being robbed; he's the Good Samaritan who also needs help. 

Watch this if you: want to see a softer, more romantic side of Chris Evans, who also directed the movie.

Quote to remember:

"There is no perfect. There will always be struggle. You just need to choose who you want to struggle with."

Before Sunrise

http://gurl.tumblr.com/post/81538577355/10-movies-that-will-make-you-want-to-fall-in-love

The characters: Two strangers who meet on a train and decide to spend the night exploring the streets of Vienna.

Watch this if you: feel like really getting into a discussion about romanticism and cynicism, unpopular opinions and paranoid thoughts, things that matter and things that should matter.

Quote to remember:

"I always feel this pressure to be a strong and independent icon of womanhood, without making it look like my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?"

That Thing Called Tadhana

The characters: She's struggling with way too much baggage in the airport; he proposes that they share the load (in more ways than one).

Watch this if you: are into good ~cinematography~ and if you’d really like to know where broken hearts go.

Quote to remember:

"Alam mo kasi, 'yung pagmamahal na ganyan... parang imposibleng walang puntahan. Mababalik at mababalik din sa'yo, not necessarily ng taong pinagbigyan mo. Pero sigurado ako, babalik sa’yo yan."
