  •  Just because it works for me doesn't mean it (7+ / 0-)

    works for everyone.  No problem!

    Can you recommend a romantic movie that you like?  :)

    •  Tara's totally sdubjective list of lesbian films (9+ / 0-)

      Good formula movies:

      Desert Hearts (Pretty much started the trend, so it wasn't a formula yet)

      The Incredible True Adventures of 2 Girls in Love

      Therese & Isabelle (late 60's b & w)

      When Night Is Falling (My favorite - professor at Christian college falls for circus performer)

      But I'm a Cheerleader (hilarious takeoff on "ex-gay" organizations)

      It's in the Water (also has a great gay male romance plot)

      I Can't Think Straight (Palestinian Christian and Indian Muslim in London)

      Bad formula movies:

      Claire of the Moon (did have one dancing scene that was way sexier than the sex scene)

      Kissing Jessica Stein (I was psyched that the heroine was bi, but she was soooo  annoying!)

      Salmonberries (all setup, no payoff, a zillion repetitions of the same song, and I still don't understand the scene with kd lang naked in the library)

      and a bunch of others that all run together

      Non-formula movies:

      Go Fish (not a lot of plot, but some interesting digressions)

      Bar Girls (bland)

      DEBS (technically does follow the formula, but it's a hilarious spy-movie takeoff rather than a romance)

      And Rent, of course, although the lesbian couple isn't the main plot
