Here are the first 5 couples in My Top 15 Movie Couples. Numbers 15 to 11 and 10 to 6 were posted already.

5. Tony Stark & Pepper Potts (Robert Downey Jr. & Gwyneth Paltrow) – Iron Man (1, 2 and 3) and The Avengers

They have been though a lot in the past couple of movies… he almost died, then he got PTSD, she moved in and his suit almost killed her, then their house went down and she thought he had died… again…, then she almost died and he destroyed all his suits. Now he’s fixed and she’s fixed and I can’t wait to see them again, whether in the Avengers or another Iron Man movie… I’m fine with either.

“Things are different now, I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.”

   

4. Elizabeth Swann & Will Turner (Keira Knightley & Orlando Bloom) – Pirates of the Caribbean (1, 2 and 3)

Even though she always flirted with Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth’s true love was always  Will. She chooses him over her family, becomes a pirate with him, marries him and waits 10 years for him to return while guarding his heart. That’s love!

“It’s always belonged to you. Will you keep it safe?”

  

3. Juliet & Mark (Keira Knightley & Andrew Lincoln) – Love Actually

I know I’m cheating here, because Juliet was married to Mark’s best friend, and they were never a couple. He was in love with her and she loved his best friend. Still, they have one of my all time favorite on screen moments, when he professes his love for her…

2. Peeta & Katniss (Josh Hutcherson & Jennifer Lawrence) – The Hunger Games

I’m team Peeta all the way! And I’m with Haymitch, when he says that not in a million years Katniss will ever deserve Peeta… Hey, the guy loves her to bits and still, he cares for her boyfriend, stands by his side while he’s hurt and tells her that she’s gotta live for her family and Gale… I absolutely love the moment in this last movie when Katniss thinks Peeta is dead, and in that moment she knows that she can’t live without him…

““No one really needs me,” he says, and there’s no self pity in his voice. It’s true his family doesn’t need him. They will mourn him, as will a handful of friends. But they will get on. Even Haymitch, with the help of a lot of white liquor, will get on. I realize only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me.

“I do,” I say. “I need you.” he looks upset, takes a deep breath as if to begin a long argument, and that’s no good, no good at all, because he’ll start going on about Prim and my mother and everything and I’ll just get confused. So before he can talk, i stop his lips with a kiss.”

― Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

   

1. Ron Weasley & Hermione Granger (Rupert Grint & Emma Watson) – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I don’t care what JK came out saying, that Hermione should have ended up with Harry and stuff, and that Ron and Hermione’s marriage would always be in trouble and so on. It’s no good for me! I think Hermione and Ron are perfect because they are different and they balance each other out! He learns so much from her and she gets out of her comfort zone mostly because of him. If she starts to laugh in the face on danger, is mostly because he was always so cold minded in the most dangerous situations and it rubbed off on her. They are perfect!

Ron-y-Hermione

““Hang on a moment!” said Ron sharply. “We’ve forgotten someone!”
“Who?” asked Hermione.
“The house-elves, they’ll all be down in the kitchen, won’t they?”
“You mean we ought to get them fighting?” asked Harry.
“No,” said Ron seriously, “I mean, we should tell them to get out. We don’t want any more Dobbies, do we? We can’t order them to die for us -”
There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione’s arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.
“Is this the moment?” Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. “OI! There’s a war going on here!”
Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other.
“I know mate,” said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a bludger, “so its now or never, isn’t it?””

My Top 15 Movie Couples: 10 to 6

Continuing with the My Top 15 Movie Couples, after the Top 15 of last year, and yesterday’s numbers 15 to 11, here comes the numbers 10 to 6.

movies_10_6

   

10. Julie & R (Teresa Palmer & Nicholas Hoult) – Warm Bodies

R may not talk much, but he’s so cute with Julie and he does whatever he can to change for her, and he does, he manages to regain his humanity and even his ability to talk again. Julie, well, she manages to overcome the whole thing of him being a zombie and eating people’s brains….

WARM BODIES

“This date is not going well. I want to die all over again.”

   

9. Tim & Mary (Domhnall Gleeson & Rachel McAdams) – About Time

Rachel McAdams has played a time-traveler’s wife before, but this is definitely a romantic and funny approach to the subject. Tim and Mary are funny and sweet, and I don’t know, I just love them so much together.

about-time02

“Somedays you want to re-live forever”

    

8. Nymphadora Tonks & Remus Lupin (Natalia Tena & David Thewlis) – Harry Potter series

Unfortunately the movies don’t do enough justice to the whole story between Tonks and Lupin. The books are much more detailed and they gives us the whole picture of the beautiful and sad story between these two adorable wizards.

Tonks, a lot younger than Lupin, falls in love with him in HP5. Throughout all of book 6, Harry and company notice that Tonks is sadder and her Patronus has change. In the end of the book it’s clear why this is: she’s in love, with Lupin, but he thinks he’s too dangerous, too poor and too old for her. He eventually comes around, and the two get married sometime between book 6 and 7. She gets pregnant soon after and Lupin, afraid that he has ruined his wife and unborn child’s lifes, runs away, but Harry sets him straight, and he gets back to Tonks in time to see the birth of their Metamorphmagus son, Teddy Lupin. Soon after, however, they are both killed during the battle of Hogwarts…

Tonks-and-Lupin-2

““You see!” said a strained voice. Tonks was glaring at Lupin. “She still wants to marry him, even though he’s been bitten! She doesn’t care!” 
“It’s different,” said Lupin, barely moving his lips and looking suddenly tense. “Bill will not be a full werewolf. The cases are completely-” 
“But I don’t care either, I don’t care!” said Tonks, seizing the front of Lupin’s robes and shaking them. “I’ve told you a million times….”
And the meaning of Tonk’s Patronus and her mouse-colored hair, and the reason she had come running to find Dumbledore when she had heard a rumor someone had been attacked by Greyback, all suddenly became clear to Harry; it had not been Sirius that Tonks had fallen in love with after all. 
“And I’ve told you a million times,” said Lupin, refusing to meet her eyes, staring at the floor, “that I am too old for you, too poor….too dangerous….”
“I’ve said all along you’re taking a ridiculous line on this, Remus,” said Mrs. Weasley over Fleur’s shoulder as she patter her on the back. 
“I am not being ridiculous,” said Lupin steadily. “Tonks deserves somebody young and whole.” 
“But she wants you,” said Mr. Weasley, with a small smile. “And after all, Remus, young and whole men do not necessarily remain so.” 
He gestured sadly at his son, lying between them. 
“This is….not the moment to discuss it,” said Lupin, avoiding everybody’s eyes as he looked around distractedly. “Dumbledore is dead….”
“Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world,” said Professor McGonagall curtly…” 
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    

7. Gwen Stacy & Peter Parker (Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield) – The Amazing Spider-Man

Oh well, I know this one won’t last long… everyone knows that he’s meant to end up with MJ, but still, Emma and Andrew’s chemistry in this movie is crazy good (probably because, you know, it was happening in real life too… but still…). Can’t wait for the second one =)…

andrew-garfield-peter-parker-emma-stone-gwen-stacy-amazing-spider-man6

“Don’t make promises you can’t keep, Mr. Parker.” 

“Yeah, but those are the best kind.”

     

6. Tom Hansen & Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – (500) Days of Summer

If you watched this movie, you know “This is a boy meets girl story. It is not a love story.“. And indeed, it isn’t! Tom is crazy in love with Summer and thinks she’s his life, but it turns out that she doesn’t feel quite the same way… it’s heartbreaking, but it’s a great movie and they are a happy couple while they last (which is not long, for most of the time he’s in love with her and she is not!). Zooey and Joseph have this crazy chemistry between them… amazing!

500_days_of_summer08

“This is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Graduate’. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parent’s marriage she’d only love two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.”

My Top 20 TV Couples: 5 to 1

Because today is Valentine’s Day, supposedly the Day of Love, here are my top 5 from my Top 20 TV Couples I’ve been doing for a few days. Top 20 from last year can be found here, Top 20 TV Couples 20-16, 15 to 11 and 10 to 6 here.

1_5   

5. Mary & John Watson (Amanda Abbington & Martin Freeman) – Sherlock

Mary and John are the only couple to make into my Top 5 that have only been together for 1 season, in a show that has now only 3 seasons and 9 episodes. They’re that good! She has a shady future and he thrives on bad situations. They are unique and their love is awesome, why? Because you only forgive your wife from lying to you, shooting your best friend and choose not to learn about her past if you really love her. Mary’s love for John is also quite evident, as she clearly states that there was nothing she wouldn’t do to prevent him from finding out about her past and Sherlock’s shooting. I just love them. I know some people think she’s coming in between Sherlock and Watson, but I never saw them in that way, so I see her as an awesome addition to the party! It must also be noted that Amanda’s onscreen chemistry with her real-life partner, Martin Freeman, is amazing.

“The problems of your past are your business. The problems of your future are my privilege”    

   

4. Piper & Leo (Holly Marie Combs & Brian Krause) – Charmed

After all these years, Piper and Leo are still in my Top 5 TV Couples! One of the best couples ever! It took them all show to finally be happy and live their lives as they wanted them, but they did it. They went through fighting the Elders, the Demons, the Avatars, and so many other things, but they managed to end up together, grow old together, in a house full of children and grandchildren. Good for them!

2x18-Piper-Leo     

“Piper, through all the tears and struggles, I always knew in my heart that we’d make it here. I promise to love and respect you from this point forward as your husband, as my wife, my lover, my friend, and my soul mate. All I am is yours.”

“Leo, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I was afraid that you were too good to be true, that maybe I didn’t deserve someone so pure and beautiful and loving as you are. But here we are surrounded by the people that I love the most and I feel so proud, and so blessed to be your wife. Leo, I was born to love you and I always will.”

   

3. Chloe & Oliver (Allison Mack & Justin Hartley) – Smallville

I have to admit that I haven’t started watching Arrow yet, because I don’t want to let go of this image of Ollie, and I don’t want to let go of Oliver with Chloe. I loved their story, it was unexpected, romantic and the poor guys suffered a big deal. But, because it’s fiction, they got over everything, got married, moved to Star City and even had a baby boy!

917Smallville0502

“Oliver… I never thought I’d have to tell you how I feel about us, because the smile on my lips when I looked at you… pretty much said it all. But now that you won’t be seeing it anymore, I’ll have to use words to tell you. I’ve never loved anyone the way I’ve loved you. And I never will again. You will always be my brightest star, my knight in shining leather, my hero.”

“It’s the best decision, I don’t remember making.”

   

2. Monica & Chandler (Courteney Cox & Matthew Perry) – Friends

They just lost nº 1 because of Pam and Jim, but they are still very much one of my  all time favorite couples. They are another couple that proves that friendship is the base of everything. Chandler is the only man on TV to have successfully escape the “Friend Zone” – note that Jim and Pam were never of the “Friend zone” because they always loved each other. They never broke up when things got hard; he faced his fear of commitment; they dealt with being in a secret relationship, coming out, finding out they weren’t able to conceive and went through an adoption process, … They’re the best!

monica_y_chandler_2856_635x

“My wife’s an incredible woman. She’s loving and devoted and caring. And don’t tell her I said this but the woman’s always right… I love my wife more than anything in this world. And I… It kills me that I can’t give her a baby… I really want a kid. And when that day finally comes, I’ll learn how to be a good dad. But my wife… she’s already there. She’s a mother… without a baby…”

   

1. Pam & Jim (Jenna Fischer & John Krasinski) – The Office

Have you ever seen The Office?! If you have, you understand: Pam and Jim are the best couple in TV… ever! Jim waited forever for her, while she’s was engaged to some other guy and he won her (in truth, she already loved him too, but was too scared to admit it). They eventually star dating, survive a long distance relationship, got engaged, got pregnant, got married and even managed to get through that terrible last season, where Jim’s job drove them apart. He gave up his dream job, because she was more important, and in the end, she gives up everything because he deserves it all! They are amazing and The Office is totally worth watching, even just for them.

Small things, like the way they smiled at each other, the way she used to put her head on his shoulders…

… that epic proposal in the rain,…

… and this (and I could be here posting pictures of them all day, but I wont).

tumblr_n0im2p3oBI1rpy2vmo1_400

And this is way they’re my number 1!!!

“Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl, who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do, which was just to.. wait. Don’t get me wrong, I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit in front of friends and family, that I do know how to make a photocopy. Didn’t need your help that many times. And, uh, do you remember how long it took you to teach me how to drive stick? I’ve been driving stick since high school, so… For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And, a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl I work with but I think, even then I knew that… I was waiting for my wife.”

My Top 20 TV Couples: 20 to 16

It’s that time of the year again! I decided to make an update of last years post of My Top 20 TV Couples. This time, however, I’ll make it a countdown. So here are my last five couples in the Top.

top16_20

   

20. Elena & Damon (Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder) – The Vampire Diaries

tumblr_mv6uhwYhVn1qf7aceo1_500

I haven’t watch The Vampire Diaries in a while, well, I have almost a whole season to catch up – last season I got pretty bored with the whole “sire bond” conundrum, so I put the episodes aside to watch them at a later time… that time hasn’t come yet!

Still, Damon and Elena have crazy chemistry, even if they aren’t currently together – and even if Elena is not actually her at the time – and even with them broken up in real life. Still, Delena rocks!

“You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger…  I want you to get everything you’re looking for.”

 

19. Ellie Bartowski & Devon ‘Captain Awesome’ Woodcomb (Sarah Lancaster & Ryan McPartlin) – Chuck

2573_elliawesome

Ellie and Davon still make the cut. Oh yeah, these two are AWESOME! An overwhelming desire to re-watch all seasons of Chuck just took over me.

They have the kind of relationship everyone wishes for! They’re supportive, attentive, sweet and they are both really hot! (Ryan McPartlin appears shirtless in many many episodes – thank GOD!).

“Whoa. Whoa! Stop right there. You are Eleanor Bartowski-Woodcomb. PHD. MD. The brainiest, sexiest, kick-assiest woman I have ever known. You’re not just anything, Ellie. You’re Mrs. Awesome.”

   

18. Scotty & Kevin (Luke Macfarlane & Matthew Rhys) – Brothers & Sisters

Kevin Scotty

Now at number 18, having dropped a considerable amount of places, comes Scotty and Kevin. I just love these two so much, they proved that amidst that crazy family, someone could have a more or less normal relationship.

“Kevin, I don’t love you because of how much money you make or because you can take care of me. I love you because your heart is bigger than your very annoying brain. And even if you did want to be competitive with me it wouldn’t make sense. Because you’re the reason I am who I am now.”

  

17. Travis & Laurie (Dan  Byrd & Busy Phillips) – Cougar Town

tumblr_mkon721FSx1qf7lqso1_500 tumblr_mkon721FSx1qf7lqso2_500

They just got together at the end of last season, but they are doing great. I love them as good friends, but I love them as a couple, and I think that it was only a matter of time and the right path to follow.

“I can’t stop feeling like we belong together, you know?”

   

16. Ted & the Mother (Josh Radnor & Cristin Milioti) – How I Met Your Mother

How-I-Met-Your-Mother-image-how-i-met-your-mother-36540742-1280-718

We just met her, we don’t even know her name and we already love her so much, am I right? She’s the perfect fit for Ted and they make such a perfect couple. Here’s why:

tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao7_250tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao6_250 tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao5_250tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao3_250 tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao2_250tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao8_250 tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao4_250tumblr_mtmdfbNWlC1qa3emao1_250

“Hi, I’m Ted Mosby, and exactly 45 days from now, you and I are gonna meet, and we’re gonna fall in love, and we’re gonna get married, and we’re gonna to have two kids, and we’re gonna love them and each other so much. All that is 45 days away. But I’m here now, I guess, because I want those extra 45 days with you. I want each one of them. If I can’t have them, I’ll take the 45 seconds before your boyfriend shows up and punches me in the face, because I love you. I’m always going to love you. ‘Til the end of my days and beyond. You’ll see.”
