‘Tis the season for love and romance… check out our comprehensive list of movies to watch in the lead up to Valentine’s Day!

  

As the season of love approaches, it’s time to start planning for Valentine’s Day. Will you be making reservations at a fancy restaurant to celebrate with your significant other?

But one thing is for sure…. Valentine’s Day 2021 will not be the same as every other you’ve previously celebrated.
