The tangled love triangle is such a cinematic trope that we could probably put together a list for every¬†year¬†(or a list of Top 10 love triangles with bad ‚Äô80s haircuts‚Ķ or Top 10 love triangles starring Reese Witherspoon‚Ķ). We decided to limit¬†this¬†list to love-triangle films we actually¬†enjoyed¬†(and not in a guilty-pleasure kind of way) ‚ÄĒ [...]

A few years ago a humble little Tumblr blog called “Fuck Yeah, Ryan Gosling” launched, featuring images of the dreamy, blue-eyed, well-toned actor with imagined lovey-dovey quotes from him to you, the girlfriend: “Hey Girl, if I had to get swine flu, I’d want to get it from you.” It hasn’t been updated in months, [...]
