List fails without the Bloody Wedding.

/It was a date of sorts...
 
2013-02-14 04:05:53 PM  
What about Species (or the sequels)? Pretty sure every date in that movie went horribly wrong.
 
2013-02-14 04:07:39 PM  
Oh and also Aliens vs. Predator. The "Fark me" look that chick gives the predator when they were making armor was pretty creepy.

I love Buffy, but I'm not sure I would have put that up the list or at least so high on the list.  Also I feel like she had worse dates than that.

Your date couldn't have gone very well if, at the end of it, you're yelling, "The Bees! The Bees!"

My Worst Date Not-So-CSB:

Took a girl out in HS.  Started at the beach, where I learned the difference between "water resistant" and "water proof," vis-a-vis the watch I'd gotten for Christmas.  Then we went and saw The Whole Nine Yards, as a double date with her idiot friend and her idiot friend's even dumber boyfriend.  As we're leaving the theater, my date informed me that she knew the code to get a free car wash at the Exxon in the shopping center (it was 80085, hardy har har).  Completely missed the warning sign at the wash entrance, and got to enjoy the soothing sounds of my Thule rack being ripped from my Mercury Sable.  Drop my date off at her house, get a very brief kiss on the cheek.

/I was a frakkin' r-tard in HS.

Johnsnownw: Came for The Blob, leaving etc...


I was thinking of the other date in that movie.  The one that starts with them finding the old man and taking him to the hospital (fun!) and ends with Shawnee Smith watching her date get graphically eaten by the blob.
 
2013-02-14 06:15:12 PM  
Jennifer's Body shouldn't be on the list because they did kill her in the end and anytime you can kill Megan Fox is a good time.

Ground Hog Day? But Bill did get laid so how is that bad?

I don't think that's sci-fi, unless that's a clone of Bruce Willis , one with hair.

This is FARK, where every headline/article gets trashed in one way or another. Since they paid to have it posted, I'm betting they don't want to read tons of comments on why their product/website/article/offer/etc. sucks.

Hahaha that was the first time I saw full-blown boobies in a movie. My mom rented that for me and a friend when we were 10, completely forgetting about that scene. We're watching it and enjoying then all of the sudden "AHHH AHHHH AHHH" my mom panics and tries to stop the video, and ends up pausing it right when they showed her fantastic jugs. She then freaked out and yanked the power cord for the TV out.

Good times.

So that's why I didn't know what comment-less sponsored links people were talking about. After getting an auto play video ad on the mobile site a month or two ago, I switched to Firefox mobile just to be able to use ad-block. I'll skip disabling it and take your word that they're there though.

Oh, also my Valentines day this year has consisted of hanging out at the hospital waiting for my wife to go into labor. Super romantic stuff...

Meh, 90% of it were aliens, and I had already been traumatized when my dad called me into the living room during the Alien chestburster scene.

But each time, the first 90% of the date went pretty well. Statistically I call it a success.
