Happy Valentine’s Week!
In honor of the love celebration taking place on Sunday, we’re giving you 4 romantic western/cowboy movies we love. I’m sure you have already purchased your significant other their gift, and if you have not then hop over to our website and get them a gift that will keep on giving for a few months.
We’ll give you a tiny synopsis just to peak your interest, but no worries, we promise no spoilers!
I mean, just a classic. The movie covers the story of two generations in a ranch in Texas, therefore it spans through decades and lasts over 3 hours. There’s love, there’s conflict, there’s death. You really can’t ask for much more.
The Man from the Snowy River
Maybe it’s the awesome theme song of the movie, maybe it’s that scene where Jessica runs to the fence in excitement in her full skirt and boots when she hears the horses coming, maybe it’s the fact that my dad and brother watched this movie over and over and over again while I was growing up in the 90s, but this movie is just good. Predictable? yes, but really what movie isn’t.
Anyways, in this Australian film Jim is forced to find a job to help him get his father’s ranch back on its feet, and during him and the girl he wishes to marry become involved in a 20 year old family feud. Kinda like Romeo and Juliet but with cowboy hats and hot Australian accents.
The Horse Whisperer
This sort of seems like your typical city girl meets country boy movie, but there is definitely more than that. Though there is a sort of love story in this plot, I would say that the bigger love story is that between the family and their horse. After a traumatic accident a family is encouraged to put down a horse that will likely never recover, but they refuse to do so without trying every last resort. Be prepared to feel the strong urge to run out to your barn and give your horse the biggest hug.
The Last Ride
This is a Nicolas Sparks movie and I feel like saying that is spoiler enough because most of his movies are the same, so I’ll leave it at that.
Now you have some good titles to cuddle up to on the couch after dinner this Sunday.
