My Date Movies
3590 7.3 7.61. Sherlock Holmes (2009)
I saw this a few weeks after it came out. It's not the best movie, and the only thing it shares with the books is the name, but I enjoyed the movie with Mike, even if it meant seeing THIS with him:
This is, however, one of his favorite movies, and started him into the books. I should warn though, he's an explosions and action type of guy.
Nonetheless, I recommend this movie for dates.
3899 7.9 82. Black Swan (2010)
I love this movie, and it is certainly one of my favorites, but perhaps not the best choice for a date movie. It's not only terrifying, but it's not for everyone. Another one I saw with Mike.
He enjoyed it, thoroughly, and said the movie was "artistic, but scared [him] shitless."
Not a good movie for a first date, but might be good if you're both into Saw II+Swan Lake mashups.
1210 5.6 5.83. Valentine's Day (2010)
Not one of my favorite movies, actually, I hated it. I felt bad for dragging Mike to it and was sorry I wasted $10 on a movie about series of intricately woven nightmares which wasn't Inception.
He hated it as well.
I did, however, hear good things from my female friends. Perhaps it was more enjoyable for people who like the chick-flick/rom-com genre.
5311 8 8.74. Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
I watched this one with Mike on my couch. I enjoyed it, but I like the Prequels (with Natalie Portman) more.
I'm a Trekkie, and felt a bit like I was betraying my fellow fans by watching this, but Mike is, unfortunately, a Star Wars fanatic.
Mike, of course, loves these movies, but I'm impartial towards them.
I don't think this is a great choice for a date movie unless you two are coming back from a Star Wars convention. Then, of course, it's perfect!
1194 5.4 5.85. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
Another movie Mike brought over and we watched on my lovely couch. I did not enjoy this one, at all. Personally, G.I. Joes don't hold any sentimental or nostalgic value to them. That aside, I didn't think it was a great movie either.
Mike disagrees. I think he just liked the explosions.
I'm not a fan of this one for a date movie. Don't be fooled by the awesome ninjas!
597 3.2 2.86. Dragonball: Evolution (2009)
I saw this with my ex-boyfriend, Andy. He was a sweetheart, but even he had some rather colorful things to say about this movie. It ruined both his and my view of Dragonball as kids.
I cannot capitalize enough, DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, WATCH THIS MOVIE.
Actually, the movie abruptly stopped thirty minutes in, so thankfully we got our money back as well as getting a pass for a next movie free!
569 5.6 5.97. The Fourth Kind (2009)
I'm not a fan of movies like this, the whole fake documentary thing. I saw this in theaters with Mike when it came out. He loved this movie, and I had to admit it wasn't bad. It's a good movie to watch, even if you're not into the alien abduction theories.
I recommend this movie for dates, with discretion.
752 4.9 5.68. Your Highness (2011)
I saw this movie with Mike in theaters, as date movies go, it wasn't bad for a comedy.
The jokes were raunchy, and it was an interesting take on fairy tales. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and while it wasn't a perfect movie by any means, it was lighthearted, though sometimes a little disgusting.
Mike, as well, enjoyed the movie. "Your Highness" had its funny moments.
2565 7.7 89. Star Trek (2009)
4049 7.4 7.610. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chro... (1994)
Just another bored day on my couch. Both of us had already seen it and love the movie, but I thought I'd put it on this list.
1248 6.5 6.911. Bridesmaids (2011)
2463 6.9 712. Thor (2011)
5748 8.2 8.613. The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
1142 5.5 5.714. Green Lantern (2011)
2379 7.5 7.815. X-Men: First Class (2011)
1543 6.5 7.116. Marley & Me (2008)
748 6.6 7.117. Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001)
:/ I still haven't figured out if I like this movie or not. On one hand, it had fantastic scenes and fantasy elements. On the other, it was just plain weird.
Michael and I enjoyed watching it, for the most part. We just don't know how to interpret it at all.
1257 6 6.418. Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
5879 8 8.419. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
479 5 5.220. Conan the Barbarian (2011)
1032 5.7 6.121. Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
