Any sure fire flicks to put on…if you’re trying to “score” with a date?
Last Tango in Paris
Haha. And you bring out the butter?
GUMMO, only because it is almost as trite as this thread.
put on some porno. just kidding….
Not “How to make an anerican quilt” that’s for sure . I thought it was a feel good ‘chick flick’. Nope every Man in there is a lying cheat piece of shit. Let’s just say she eyed me with distrust for the rest of the evening. The only score was the one Thomas Newman composed.
Perhaps trite. But sometimes movies can have an effect on your relationships with other people. The right movie to put on…when you’re having troubles with your “partner” etc…
Gregory’s Girl: you can’t go wrong.
As a matter of fact; I ended up in bed at an afterparty, and the girl put on Vertigo. Melt my heart. Started watching the film and forgot about the girl…
Vicky Cristina Barcelona worked for me.
Are movies better than sex? lol maybe sometimes.
I thought watching great films were equivalent to having sex? Maybe thats just me
Salo is a can’t miss.
Three films to which no set of ovaries is immune or resistant:
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Two for the Road
Trust me on this.
Wings of Desire.
Christopher… I despise Breakfast at Tiffany’s….
lol, notice how the only woman who has posted says only that she hates Breakfast at Tiffany’s?
who’s dumb enough to expect a movie to get them laid? i think it has everything to do with the individual and nothing with the movie.
and if you want to say that the movie “sets the mood”, there are definitely more enjoyable ways to set the mood, cinephile or no, this is one instance where movies add nothing.
but hey, maybe after 10 years of marriage you might end up say “hey, after the movie is over I think we might have some time free to go to bed”, but that is only a testament to the dullness of the movie and the sex lives of those involved.
… except Lona
Yes it’s horses for courses. Which brings to mind The Big Sleep. And in turn, Play it again Sam, with Woody Allen getting pointers from Bogey on how to score: ""I never met a dame yet that didn’t understand a slap in the mouth or a slug from a .45."
Ha, Lona’s right to despise Breakfast at Tiffany’s of course, what with the horror that is Mickey Rooney. Audrey Hepburn is probably the right lines, so why not Roman Holiday? My wife likes My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend by Rohmer a lot, as do i. A romantic summery film with likeable young protagonists. Ditto The Green Ray, which we love even more. These could be a useful test of compatability. Alternatively, (if not Salo) try De Niro’s Taxi Driver porno technique- perhaps Ai no Corrida, or for the feminist Baise-Moi- and see whether that works! Now which films would women put on if trying to score?
I agree with Breakfast at Tiffanys – I made sure it was the first movie we saw together and still together seven years later … and that’s despite my partner hating cats … ‘Cat..Cat!!!!’
“notice how the only woman who has posted says only that she hates Breakfast at Tiffany’s?”
I figured it was better to say nothing else… although…

that mostly sums it up.
Before sunrise/before sunset
Christopher,am seriously considering watching Ghost and Mrs Muir after seeing it as your “score” pick…how did that work?Ghost and Mrs Muir?really?i have never seen it but now you’re tempting me to use it for “this” method!!!
i also need to see more Rohmer,thanks Kenji for the “picks”,hehe.
and Rich is still complaining about everything now,isn’t he?
Vicky Cristina Barcelona worked for me as well..
I wasn’t complaining.
I was making fun.
Anything in French – French is the language of love – l’amour – after all. That is anything French but Irreversible – which will just get you kicked-out. Maybe A Man and A Woman.
Believe it or not, I scored with a girl after watching Daredevil together. I wouldn’t recommend it though…lol
Blind superheroes seem to have that sort of an effect on women.
The term “score” makes me want to puke.
