THE HOPELESS ROMANTIC Identifying traits: Can recite "Casablanca." Verbatim. Also is quite likely to own at least one copy of virtually every film starring Julia Roberts. Shopping list: Some couples get turned on by poetic intimations of doom, like those that shoot through Terence Malick's achingly gorgeous "Days of Heaven" (Criterion, $39.95), a languid drama about a turn-of-the-last-century love triangle. Others like their love to be "like a storybook story," in which case only the dry comedy and mushy romance of William Goldman and Rob Reiner's fairy-tale pastiche "The Princess Bride: 20th Anniversary Edition" (MGM, $19.98) will suffice. Wacky high jinks scored by canned laughter? There are the farcical follies of "Love, American Style: Season One, Volume One" (Paramount, $31.99). But any romantic is sure to swoon for the sweetly melancholy Irish rock musical "Once," which chronicles the love affair between two performers in Dublin (Fox, $29.99).
