Great Virtual First Date Films

Dylon’s song The Times They Are A Changin’ couldn’t be more relevant than they are today, and with the changing times and isolation, the way we go on dates right now are completely different than they were 6 weeks ago. For many single people the time they are spending in isolation is just that, isolated, and new ways have to be found on how to meet people and go on dates. One such way is going on a virtual date, and thanks to cameras on our phones, computer and tablets, it makes it easy to not only see each other and talk to each other, but watch a movie together as well. Here are some options for going on a great virtual first date.

It Happened One Night – There really might not be a better romantic comedy than this one from 1934. The film stars Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, and follows the story of a spoiled heiress who is trying to run away from her family, and meets a reporter looking for a story who is willing to help her.

The Breakfast Club – This 1985 film is pure 80s magic. It’s about a group of high-school students who discover they have a lot more in common than they thought as they are forced to spend a Saturday in detention together. This John Hughes film is one of the late director’s best.

Ghost – This 1990 film proves that just because a film features the supernatural doesn’t mean it has to be scary. In fact this tear-jerker starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore is more of a love story. It’s the story of a murdered man who stays behind to warn his lover of the danger she is still in, and how their love transcends the physical world. 

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Good science fiction aims to teach you something, and this 2004 film starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet attempts to do just that. After a horrible breakup, a couple decide to have their memories erased to forget their relationship and each other. The couple soon finds out however that love will always find a way. 

Groundhog Day – In his prime, there might just not have been anyone better than Bill Murray. He could always play the right mix of lovable and jerk, and in this film it was no different. As a weatherman caught living the same day over and over again until he gets it right, Murray proves it’s worth doing things repeatedly until you get it right.
