We all try to make extravagant plans for Valentine's Day, but for whatever reason, they seem to fall through more often than not. If that's the case this year, or if you and your special someone are thinking of a more relaxing kind of date night, queue up these classic romantic movies for a low-key Valentine's Day. 

Love Actually

While some would consider Richard Curtis's "Love Actually" a Christmas movie, the holiday theme is really more incidental. In any case, this 2003 film has become something of a romantic comedy classic, and it's easy to see why. With an ensemble cast of stars including Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Alan Rickman and Rowan Atkinson, the performances in "Love Actually" are still some of the most memorable from any movie in recent years. To make sure everything comes in with crystal-clear 1080p resolution, you'll want to double check that your HDMI cable is up to snuff. A cable with gold-plated connectors allows for seamless transmission of audio and video signals, meaning no static and no interruptions to your movie. This is especially important if your streaming any content from your laptop to your TV. 
 

Titanic

It's hard to imagine now, but when it was released in 1997, "Titanic" was the blockbuster of blockbusters. It was also the most expensive film ever made at the time, with a budget clocking in at $200 million according to Variety. Legendary director James Cameron used that huge sum to create a memorable film that's equal parts love story and action-packed period drama. With too many classic scenes to mention, "Titanic" has earned its place as one of the most beloved romance stories in film. But viewers wouldn't be doing it justice without the right home theater setup. To watch a movie of this caliber, you need a great TV, surround sound system and the right DVD or Blu-Ray player. To cut down on the clutter, take advantage of a quality universal remote, which can give you full control over as many as eight devices. Don't spend time getting up fumbling for the right remote again. (Although someone will still have to get up to get the popcorn when it's ready - sorry.)

The Notebook

The movie that launched the career of heartthrob sensation Ryan Gosling, "The Notebook" never really gets old no matter how many times you watch it. Unless of course your girlfriend is making you watch it with her for the sixth time this month. Look guys, no matter how manly you think you are, you can't deny you would be pretty messed up too if your painstakingly-written letters were being withheld by your crush's mom. When it comes to enjoying romantic tearjerkers, it's all about perspective. With breakout talent Rachel McAdams playing Gosling's onscreen soul mate, the chemistry between the two is remarkable, and a huge part of the enduring success of this classic.
 

Rear Window

For a slightly unconventional choice, consider Alfred Hitchcock's classic mystery thriller, "Rear Window." With a stellar cast of actors from Hollywood's golden age, including Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, this movie's shocking twists and turns will have you both on edge in the best way. To get the most out of the suspense and the brilliant soundtrack, outfit your home theater with high-quality coaxial cables. These deliver the clearest sound for the best value and are the perfect fit to complete your entertainment setup.
