I'm making my own list now, and I think I never have deleted more movies that are tagged as the genre from my list in any genre poll. So many movies that have some romantic elements, but aren't romance movies to me. Romance seems to be a really a secondary genre to most movies and not the primary one.

Would agree with this - and as a genre by itself, "romance" is not something I am particularly enthused by.

I almost considered not submitting a list this time, but I have decided to submit a brief list of unusual/different romance movies instead. Might add some more later if any others spring to mind.

I don't think I'm going to get around to ranking my list, so I"m just going to post the link here and let it go in unranked.

I have looked at a fair number of lists, and think that one of the real problems with this poll is how differently people seem to define “romance.”

Top 140 ranked, rest unranked

These genre lists can be a challenge to compile, and ranking isn't as easy to do as with a year or decade. Nor is determining eligibility, but in order to qualify for mine a film had to meet at least one of three criteria: Romance tag on ICM, present on one of the three "Romantic" lists on ICM, or listed as a Romance film by TSPDT (in the extended starter list of well over 15K films).

Nominations are now closed!

I updated the OP. Please check if your list is stated, ordered and linked correctly.
I count 40 romantic iCMers. Could someone verify that number?

Despite all the complaining how hard making a list for this was ;), most people did submit long lists. So I'm going to set the half-life at 50.

My list was 210, but it felt a lot shorter than other genre lists I've made. I culled a lot of films from my starting list for not being "romance" enough. I almost left Deadpool in, because I love their relationship in the film, but ultimately decided that I liked the film more for being an action comedy than for being a romance.
