AMC – Fantasy Movies for Every Step of Your Relationship
My new column is up at AMC, Fantasy Movies for Every Step of Your Relationship
Once upon a time, my brother called to ask if I’d seen Pan’s Labyrinth. I had, and I raved about it, carefully avoiding spoilers. Later I found out that he’d taken a girl to see the movie as a first date. Bad move! As brilliant as that film is, it’s also profoundly not a good first-date flick; taking a date to see something that leaves you distressed, grossed out and sad is not the best plan. A good date movie shapes the subsequent emotional responses so it needs to be chosen with thought. With that in mind, allow me to guide you through the steps of a relationship, movie by movie.
Stop by the AMC site and let us know what films led you to happily ever after.
Edited to add: Since the AMC folks can tell the success of a column in part by the number of comments, if you all wouldn’t mind making any new comments over there instead of here… It would help ensure that I stay hired. Many thanks!
