5 Science Fiction Films for Valentine's Day

A short list of romantic science fiction just right for this Valentine's Day weekend.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
If you had the technology to remove the pain of a breakup from your memory would you do it, and would it really take? A funny, sad, sci-fi romance that really stays with you.

Solaris (2002)
When death ends a relationship how far is too far to go to get a second chance? This one is moving and haunting.

The Fifth Element (1997) 
In all honesty my favorite parts of this funny, action packed sci-fi are not the romantic bits, but they give the film its moving conclusion. And Chris Tucker has never been better.
Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) 
This indy pic is a slow burn, but endearing, quirky and funny. Who needs sanity when you're falling for someone?

Blade Runner (1982) 
A futuristic film noir, with a femme-fatal, a morally challenged hero, genetic engineering and Frankenstein's monster fighting for just one more day in a world that doesn't want him. This one is sad, moving and has more atmosphere than ten films. Not to mention the sexiest soundtrack ever composed.    

Happy Valentine's Day

Blade Runner is akin to an unexpectedly beautiful, long and profound poem, that you wish you could keep on reading forever. You think you don't quite get it, but you do!
