It goes without saying that most of you would pick a romantic movie to watch for a date. While some may choose an action or even a horror movie (both provide you escapist entertainment without being cheesy that romantic movies can be sometimes). But is there a type of films that you should completely avoid? Are there types of films that are strictly no-no?
In my opinion, there are two kind of movies you strictly should avoid: 1. something very graphically violent or sexual and 2. dramas that show downfall or pitfalls of a relationship. With that in mind let’s jump right into 10 such films that fall into one of these categories and that you should never ever watch on a date.
10. Antichrist (2009)
A grieving couple retreat to their cabin in the woods, hoping to repair their broken hearts and troubled marriage. But nature takes its course and things go from bad to worse. A genius like Lars von Trier — who I’m a big fan of — is no stranger to making deeply disturbing films. This is one! And even though it is a great film if you watch it alone, I would never advise you to watch it with you date.
Why you should avoid it: Weird, graphically sexual and is about crumbling relationship.
