Valentines Day is like the Marmite effect; some people love it, others hate it. The only thing for sure is that you’ve got to do something. TSR’s jeanlucpicard decided to settle for a movie; turns out even that is a minefield…

Most of us have the idea to buy our other halves big extravagant gifts or do something exciting, but always end up sticking with the safe option - this is not a bad thing however. We all know that the safe option is to go out for a meal, maybe buy flowers, chocolate etc. this is without a doubt a huge crowd pleaser. Me? I'm the sort of person that doesn't mind grabbing a take-away (or maybe even cooking at home), chilling out and watching a film. The big question is what film/s should I avoid? With this in mind I thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of five films that you definitely shouldn't watch on Valentine's Day, so if you're looking for a Valentine’s Day movie without the slush? No worries – just steer well clear of these ones:

<h3>The Break Up</h3>
Why wouldn't I watch this with my partner? Clue is in the title. The opening sequence will make you happy as they build their life together along to Queen (You're my best friend) but then… it all goes down the pan. Fight, cry, fight, cry, done. If you’re looking for a film that highlights the breakdown of a relationship, this is your film..

<h3>Closer</h3>
This film is a bit of a head scrambler, I couldn't keep up with what was going on. The reason why this is in the five films not to watch this Valentine's Day is because you learn how some people can't commit to just one relationship, therefore welcoming heart-break. It also encourages lying, cheating and all the things that shouldn't happen in a relationship.

<h3>Under the Skin</h3>
Probably one of the weirdest films I've ever seen. It's a film about a woman that finds various men to seduce, the men follow her into a black void and are led into a floor of liquid. It's so dark and mysterious, you'll probably forget about where you are after you watch it. I mean it is an OK film, but certainly not appropriate for Valentine's Day - it's weird, steer clear.

<h3>The Grudge</h3>
I don’t know if it’s just me but this film, terrifying. It could be alright for an old fashioned cuddle up and a good chance to use the well trusted yawn trick (don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about), but definitely one of THE most unromantic film you could watch...

<h3>Teeth</h3>
Need I say anything? <br><br>For all of you that haven't watched this film, keep it that way. After all, she might bite...<br><br><br><br>
