Courtesy of Ms Patterson – “some dude took me to see rosewood on a date when it first came out and i cried for like 10 minutes while the credits rolled. it really killed the date vibe…as a matter of fact the whole movie killed the date vibe. that was the equivalent of taking someone on a date to see Schlinder’s List…bad move.”
Intellectual Hedonist – “perhaps a friday future blog? movies not to take a date to/or movies that kill the mood”
Well hot damn, it’s like a Friday post was just gift wrapped and handed down from the Friday post Gods.
Except it’s Thursday. But we’ll pretend its Friday since we know that none of you all will actually be at work on Friday. And if by chance you MUST work on Friday, well may God have mercy on your employer’s soul.
So tonight I went to see Hancock. What a great movie. It was entertaining and comedic and romantic and had a good storyline. That my friends, is a perfect movie date. It leaves lots of room for hand holding and innocently guilty touching and fun conversation that spins off the movie.
Basically, Hancock is the kind of movie that keeps the mood light and fluffy and is the perfect set up for some light and fluffy. Heh heh heh.
Rosewood? Not so much. I don’t know about you, but when I saw it, I was mad at white people for at LEAST 15 minutes. Nevermind I saw it with my white family. Needless to say, there were some very tense moments once the movie ended. Luckily they’re my family and we just drank the night away and all was well in our interracial world.
Rosewood is a total blower and kills the mood you’re trying to set when you go out on a date. The whole purpose of dates is to progress the possibility of seeing somebody naked. In order to do this, you generally need smiles and giggles. And if you throw in a smiley face on a napkin, well you’re in there. Because as we all know:
Bitches love the smiley face.
Now it’s entirely possible that going to see a documentary about blood diamonds where 90 percent of the interviewees don’t have arms will get somebody in the mood. Just wouldn’t be anybody I’d ever want to date. However, for most people, light and fluffy = thumbs up.
Depressing, uber-reflective, and tragic = no drawz that night.
So good people of VSB.com, what are some movies that might kill the mood on a date? And because I’m feeling benevolent, what are some movies that will work every time if you’re trying to set a naked positive tone on a date? And for the hell of it, we’ll assume that this could be a date you bring home since The Money Pit is no longer playing in theaters.
Sharing is caring people. Sharing is caring.
