2 nights ago, i went with this girl to go see Grindhouse at this awesome theater that shows obscure movies. She had never seen it before.

Im not sure this chick likes me very much anymore. During Planet terror, i laughed at the parts that she might have found distastefull. (Like when the kid accidentally shoots himself if the head). I cracked up alot durring that, but this girl just gave me the most unaproving look Ive ever been given. Besides that, she was kinda grossed out (what with all the puss and melting penises an' all) and she ended up getting up and leaving in the middle of Death Proof.

Haven't spoke to her since that night. Ah, who needs her, right?! HA!
Anything similar ever happen to you??

This story is almost as funny as Robert Dinero taking Meryl Streep to a porno on their first date in Taxi Driver.   BounceGiggle  Honestly I haven't had anyone leave me behind, mainly due to the fact I go alone to most movies I see.  I too laugh at the overally graphic parts which I find makes the patrons around me uneasy.  Karma for the story and letting the chick know who you are.  You're right, if she doesn't like it, oh well.  It beats dating a girl and pretending to like Jennifer Aniston movies.  Lookingup

Well...I don't now if I can say it is a good or bad choice.

If you want to date someone, at some point they are going to discover who you are, what your likes and dislikes are, etc., and it certainly sounds like you found a way to break that ice. She doesn't click with that and you would have found that out one way or another. That's not her problem, or your's.

I took a girl who had never heard of HP Lovecraft on a date to see RE-ANIMATOR (unrated) when it was in theaters.  People were leaving that place in droves.  Afterward, she said, "that movie should have been rated X."

On the first date with my wife, we rented PLEDGE NIGHT.  By the end of our third date, we'd watched MANY b-movies, mostly 80's horror and goofy stuff like ROCKIN ROAD TRIP and FRATERNITY VACATION...typical "Up All Night" fare I had on VHS.

A friend of mine was on a first date with a girl and asked me for advise on a good movie when I ran into them in the video store. I suggested "I Spit on your Grave" and totally ruined their date. It took him weeks to convince her it wasn't a setup (She thought it was a setup to get her to watch porn or something) and to get her to not think he was an idiot dirtbag pervert. They eventually went out a few more times but it didn't work out. He should have known from her overly-offended/no sense of humor reaction that it wasn't going to work between them. Why they rented it without reading the box is beyond me.

I did once go see "Moonstruck" with a girlfriend I was getting back together, , which was so bad it played right into my plans for us to leave the theater and go do something else  TeddyR  That's the only useful thing that has ever come to be from Cher's acting 'career'

When I go out with a girl I take her to two things-B-movie and a punk show. I'm up front with stuff like that because movies and music are my life. With my last girlfriend I took her to see Black Sheep which she liked and a show which she also enjoyed. didn't work out in the long run but where both pretty close friends.

Sort of. I ended up marrying the girl, so I guess she forgave me.

We've been married a lot of years and we enjoy a lot of the same A-movies. But she definitely doesn't share my tastes in horror and B-movies. So my Netflix list consists of two different kinds of movies, those to watch together and those I'm going to watch when I have idle time during train commutes, when she's asleep, or when one of us is on travel.

My story: I had told her about "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" and described it as one of the funniest movies I'd ever seen. She laughed at my description of my favorite scenes. But she found it excruciatingly dumb and tiresome when I finally took her to see it on a date. "It sounded better the way you described it". She's still giving me grief about that date.

However, "I have bad news: these [monster mutant killer tomatoes] are cherry tomatoes" has become an in-joke that we both use. And either one of us might suddenly start singing "look out... for the tomatoes", particularly when making salad.

That was Cybill Shepherd, not Meryl Streep, but you're right, ballsy move on Dinero's part.

I took Dixie to a Saskatchewan Animation Festival on our second date -- we were both falling in the aisles over a gross/surreal cartoon that ended in nuclear apocalypse.  She doesn't do certain types of gore or violence, but loves the Hammer films & films like it.  She gets Ed Wood 100%.  Neither of us particularly care for zombie pictures, but she enjoyed 3/4 of Shaun of The Dead & most of Black Sheep.  There are a few films we need to watch separately, but generally ours is a great match, B-wise.

She was the first person I can think of I took to strange cinema fare when dating -- In college & high school, we went to movies in groups or solo.  As a couple, I went to a few films but these were always "A"/first-run releases, or classics like Modern Times.

It was Look Back and Laugh and 108. It was more of a hardcore show.

I think I once read in Psychology Today or something, that when people watch violent movies on dates, if the man dosen't react much to the violence in the movie, he's more likely to get laid. It's like women percieve that as masculine or something.

So THAT'S been my problem.  I need to stop squealing like a little girl and hiding my head in my hands every time the zombie's head explodes!
