5 10 Things I Hate About You
It’s sweet, it’s romantic, it features Julia Stiles — who plays Kat — at her snarky best. And while the two sisters in the film don’t always get along, their relationship is just as high a priority as Kat’s with Heath Ledger’s Patrick, and Larisa Oleynik’s Bianca’s with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Cameron. Basically, it’s a feel-good movie, and we all pretty much need feel-good in our lives right about now in 2k17.
6 Magic Mike
…Do we really need to explain why this one is on here?
7 It Follows
Not having any sex this Valentine’s Day? Not a problem! Just gather up some Galentines who are experiencing a similar dry spell and stream It Follows. You’ll never want to do it again! Yay!
8 The Princess Bride
Single or nah, it’s okay to get weepy and optimistic about ~ true love ~ sometimes, especially if it’s within the comfort of your group of girlfriends. No one will judge!
Okay, there’s nothing Galentine’s Day-y about Armageddon. But having watched it with a Galentine of my own just two weeks ago, trust me on this one — this movie is high-key hilarious in 2017. Like, why have super-genius astronauts teach oil drillers how to do space, instead of, you know, having the oil drillers teach the super-genius astronauts how to work a big drill? None of it makes any sense, but it’s fantastic, and both Ben Affleck and Bruce Willis look fine as hell.
10 BONUS: The “San Junipero” episode of Black Mirror
This one isn’t a movie, but in case you haven’t heard by now, know that this Season 3 episode of Black Mirror — which features two women falling in love in an ’80s seaside party town, only with a massive sci-fi twist — will make you feel things. It’s a beautifully melancholy piece on love, memory, regret, and the lives we could have lived — and of course, demands to be watched with other women.
