This week is a bit special since this is the theme I have recommended myself. I had just seen Marriage Story, the one with that verbal altercation aka fight where Adam Driver acting skills are out of this world. And no, I will not pick Marriage Story even though it fits perfectly. But I’m going to go with something a little bit different, and throw in a bit of eye candy like I did that week.
1. THE NOTEBOOK (2004)
As far as couple fights go The Notebook is hands down a memorable one! I’ve seen this movie once (I don’t know how that happened) but I still remember Ryan Gosling angrily asking “what do you want?”. It’s a fight that’s rooted in love and those are always the ones that have the most emotion and power. And that’s what I think about when I think about “verbal altercations”, the emotional pull they have.
2. BLUE VALENTINE (2010)
What is it about Ryan Gosling being mad and yelling? It seems like he does that a lot and searching for a clip, I realised he also argues in La La Land (haven’t seen that one though). Not complaining though, he does it really well. In Blue Valentine he also argues with his wife played by Michelle Williams. Things get a bit physical too but it’s just mostly a verbal fight.
3. CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE (2011)
You know that big fight they have at the end of the movie, where they yell at each other and there’s a lot going on. That’s probably my favourite (lighter) verbal altercations (that does have a few punches and end with a wrestling thing) because it’s just so brilliant. It brings all the storylines together, the conflict builds up with each sentence, it has a lot of confusion and humour. This is simply three minutes of perfection!
