Current Movies Good For Dates?

Posted on 01/31/2014 8:40:48 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

So I was looking at some good date movies out to take my girlfriend to tonight.. and I've really been wanting to see Lone Survivor.

BUT.. I read the reviews and it sounds like there is a lot of cussing and grapic-ness.

Maybe more of a movie you'd go see with some dudes. But taking a girl.. maybe not.

Any other recommendations??

She saw that last weekend.

BUT.. she might be willing to see it again.

She also likes that Frozen movie. But she’s seen it too! ha

I would not suggest Lone Survivor as a date movie. Pretty gory, loaded with f-bombs, high tension.

Yah!! I just realized that after looking at the reviews.

I am glad I looked. I mean it’s a fantastic story.. but not good to take a date to.

Well, *I* liked Lone Survivor and so did my daughter. Actually, it was my daughter who brought the movie to my attention.

How about asking your date what SHE wants to see so you can both decide together??

I asked and she kinda left it up to me. But during dinner I will bring it up again to see what she may be interested in.

Take her to Lone Survivor! Sure it has language and lots of things blowing up but the movie is fantastic and extremely well done. You can see Marcus Luttrell in a few of the shots. I loved the film and its my version of a “chick flick”.

I REALLY do want to see it. But I know there’s lots of F bombs and some graphic-ness.. I just don’t want to make her feel uncomfortable.

Since this is only like our 5th date. We haven’t been dating for years or anything.

Jennifer Aniston’s latest movie with a good surrounding cast. A likeable part time drug seller gets snagged into picking up a load of marijuana by his lying supplier.

Ends up having to ‘hire’ a family (stripper Aniston, a local boy in his building and a girl from off the streets).

The movie is mostly about the troubles they have in Mexico and afterwards coming. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very funny.

Do you think it would be an OK movie to take a date to?

Dragged the boyfriend to “Saving Mr. Banks” and he enjoyed that. Dragged him to “Nebraska” and he didn’t. We both liked “Lone Survivor” but it did earn it’s R rating in a number of areas. He owes me big time for making me sit through “Anchorman 2”.

Plus the popcorn is much less expensive; and a bottle of wine is a nice touch!!
Here are two movies I have used in the above situation, The Way; Bottle Shock...

She will greatly admire your creative; yet budget minded alternative!!

I don’t see why not...there is an occasional curse word, but nothing too vulgar. Aniston is very good in the movie as is the rest of the cast. This movie probably will be hard to find still in theaters as it is already out on DVD I think. I pre-ordered it from iTunes so I got it a little early...it still is worth seeing, even if at home.

Whatever you do, forget Lone Survivor. Awful movie with people graphically getting their arms and legs broken and their brains blown out. She won’t want to see you for a week if you take her to that. It’s like a true horror story - YUCK

Go rent “The World’s Fastest Indian.”

After the movie, crack open a bottle of wine, and play “Avalon” by Roxy Music.

Lone Survivor is not a date pic, unless she just got out of the Marine Corps. It is a must see if you are a patriot and one who respects the dedication, service and integrity of those who serve in our armed forces. It is tough to see the wounding and pain these brave men went through, but it is necessary to show what dedication and comradeship they had.

Saving Mr Banks.

No cussing. A tear jerker.

Movies aren’t very good nowadays.

Remember if you insist on wasting money in this way, they call them chick flicks for a reason.

Go to them. Don’t care about what you would like to see.

Do not patronize Hollywood. The only movies worth seeing are not movies you’d take a date to anyway. The rest only funnel money into the hands of America’s enemies.

Go to your local indie house (make sure you check out the fare first; indies can be worse than Hollywood.) Or better yet, avoid the dinner-and-a-movie cliche entirely.

Again, probably has some graphic, nasty stuff in it.

The only way I got him to go was because Tom Hanks was in it and we both like him - “Captain Phillips” was great. But the whole movie is teriffic. “Nebraska”, on the other hand, kind of defies description. Most of the acting was good but the story is kind of a downer.

Just bring her over to your place - make a nice roast, Merlot, chocolate mousse for dessert turn out the lights and put on a Zero 7 CD.

I’m not one for strong language but it did not offend me in LS, maybe cos it was a real story. If she cares about this country and supports our military then she will not be offended by LS.

Tell her you would like to see it, but give her another option as well, we like options :)

Good luck!

5th date? It’s time to give her the ‘can you handle not going out’ test. Spend a night at home, not doing much of anything but talking, watching TV, cards, board game.. Simple pleasures. That’s the real test. Find out if it’s YOU she wants to be with and not the movies or always going out.

I also highly recommend Lone Survivor... If your date can’t handle that then boot her to the curb

She’s DEF a patriot and supports the military.

But since this is a fairly new relationship.. I’ll look at all the movie options.

Enter the movie names from local theaters into the IMDB website. Then read the ‘user reviews’ from IMDB about the movie and you will know whether or not you and your girl friend will enjoy it.

I second that. However if you must watch something, American Horror Story Season 3.
