There are many romantic fantasy, sci fi or animated movies, TV shows and comic books – we’re splitting the top 10 in two articles. Herewith our second top 5 most romantic fantasy, sci fi or animated geeky movies!
(1) The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
Audrey Niffenegger’s debut novel, The Time Traveler’s Wife, was published in 2003. It’s a love story about a man who has a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel in unpredictable ways, and his wife, an artist who has to deal with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences. Niffenegger began the story as a metaphor for her failed relationships because she was frustrated in love at the time. The central relationship of the story came to her unexpectedly and provided the inspiration for the novel’s title.
Synopsis:When Henry DeTamble meets Clare Abshire in a Chicago library, they both realize he is a time traveler, but she knows a lot more about him because he hasn’t been to the times and places where they’ve already met. He falls in love with her, just as she has with him, but his unavoidable absences while time traveling – and then returning with increasing knowledge of their future – make things difficult for Clare.
(2) City of Angels (1998)
Seth (Nicolas Cage), an angel who is invisible to people and wanders the Los Angeles area, is the subject of this tale. When a person’s death is near, he spends time with them and makes himself known, acting as their travel companion on the journey to the great hereafter. His encounter with Maggie (Meg Ryan), a distraught heart surgeon, inspires him to give up his immortality and live on Earth with her as a feeling and mortal entity.
(3) Just Like Heaven (2005)
San Francisco doctor Elizabeth Masterson worked long hours and hardly had time for anything. When her sister, who has two children, set her up on a date, she is involved in a tragic car accident and falls into a coma. Meanwhile, a landscape architect named David Abbott relocates to San Francisco and, by coincidence, rents Elizabeth’s apartment. Elizabeth’s spirit follows him around the apartment. She has no recollection of who she is, who her family is, or what she did; all she remembers is her apartment and where everything was. To end the squabbles, David agrees to figure out who Elizabeth is.
