Titanic: Huge fucking boat on its first goddamn trip. Dude wins a fucking game of fucking poker to get on it. Saves a girl from certain death, they shag. After a series of mishaps and events of intrigue involving a priceless gem, the huge fucking boat hugely fucking sinks. He dies saving her again. The End.
Do The Notebook next.
Never actually seen it. I read the IMDB database synopsis, though, and conferred with Kellsbells. I believe it can be best summarised as follows:
Guy (Noah, named after a guy who builds a goddamn boat to save the world) meets a girl (Allie), and among other things, climbs a GODDAMN FERRIS WHEEL merely to pose sexily for her. The suave young devil continues his quest despite obstacles to their meeting. His connivingly crafty friends use their significant powers of guile to allow him to win her. Noah then has to go to war and overcomes his pitiful emotions about them being apart in a manly fashion - he has a job to do. There's fucking guns and blood and dirt and grit everywhere, and a childhood friend of his, Fin, dies - Fin is Fin-ished. During their year apart, despite feasting on the entrails of his enemies for sport, he manages to gather his thoughts and express them intelligently to her by post.
Allie, not to be outdone, spends her days covered in blood and sweat and dirt, saving the lives of countless soldiers. Despite being utterly taken by Noah, our hero, she gets engaged to a dude, but realises how truly fucked she'd be if she married the new dude. Noah is *so* fucking manly that she ditches her fiancee to go have sex with him in the (once abandoned) mansion that he has spent years rebuilding BY HAND, with his own blood and sweat, in the dirt.
When they're old, Allie gets dementia and Noah reads to her about how they met, and they both die of shock at his manliness.
Also, he spends a good portion of his time just chilling on a fucking rowboat
