ESCAPE WITH YOUR LOVE INTO THE WORLD OF ROMANTIC MOVIES!
Body Heat (1981)
A movie hot enough to melt paint. Ambulance-chasing lawyer Ned Racine (William Hurt) falls for femme fatale Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner), who's married to the richest man in town. Clearly derived from Double Indemnity, Body Heat scores with style: It's a steamy, adult update of classic film noir. John Barry's seductive score adds to a film already dripping with atmosphere
Kathleen Turner is great in this movie! William Hurt can almost keep up, but not quite. Some great passionate moments.
Enraged at the slaughter of Murron (Catherine McCormack) -- his new bride and childhood love -- legendary Scottish warrior William Wallace (Mel Gibson, who also directed the film) slays a platoon of the local English lord's soldiers. This leads the village to revolt and, eventually, the entire country to rise up against English rule. With vivid battle scenes and a heaping portion of legend, Gibson's epic won five Oscars, including Best Picture.
Not classified as a Romance Movie, it is nonetheless one of my Romantic Favorites! There is something unmistakably romantic about a man who loves his woman with such passion! The scenes with Mel Gibson and Sophie Marceau aren't too shabby either!
