Valentine's Day is a good time to pop in a good movie and snuggle up to the one you love. Sometimes, though, pure romance doesn't cut it. So here are some dramas, thrillers, historical epics and documentaries to mix up the traditional love story, plus one anti-love story for all those happily single.

    The perfect blend of superhero action adventure with a romantic twist. Even if your S.O. prefers the MCU, they’ll still love watching Gal Gadot kick butt in WWI!

    Looking for something more animated? Look no further than Pixar's sweet robotic love story, which finds its roots in old Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin romps, and features a sweet, sentimental live action clip from the 1969 musical rom-com "Hello Dolly!"

    If you and your S.O. are into history, then there's no love story that compares to James Cameron's colossal, over-budget historical romance.

    Want to change things up with some chills? Tomas Alfredson's teen vampire romance should be your pick. It's the movie "Twilight" wishes it was. We also recommend Matt Reeves' American remake, "Let Me In."

    Falling in love with your operating system? This robo-romance seems more prescient now than when it came out in 2013. Now, if we could only get Alexa to talk like Scarlett Johansson.
