By  · Published on March 23rd, 2012

We’ve already signed up hundreds of people for FSR Dating – the first dating site for movie fans – and to aid the endeavor to provide all of our readers with that special tingle, we’re tossing out a few ideas (that you can totally claim as your own) for forming dates around this week’s releases. They’re perfect for finding a new flame or for re-wooing your current wife/girlfriend/husband/boyfriend.

This week involves a triple header of a bunch of kids fighting to the death, an Asian action flick where men are trying to kill each other, and an Asian flick where a bunch of kids are fighting to the death. Perfect for romance to bloom. Gather ye rosebuds while you can.

Check out these thematic date ideas, sack up, and go ask someone out. Then send us the pictures.

How About We See The Hunger Games Then…

…Learn How To Shoot an Arrow

One option for the date is to fight to the death, but the endgame there doesn’t work out well for the long-term. Or the short-term. You at least want to get to first base before ending the existence of your potential mate. A better option? Heading over to get your bow on. In Los Angeles, one of the best spots is Rancho Park Archery Range. It used to be an Olympic training facility, and it has several safety and first-time classes as well as shooting times that are, wait for it, completely free. If you’re not in Los Angeles, there are bound to be some solid spots – or you can always pick up some equipment at a sporting goods store and find an empty field.

…Learn to Fight

On display in Gareth Evans’s new movie is the fighting technique Silat. Does anything look sexier?Of course not. And there’s a hell of a lot of it going on in The Raid.

Since you’ll probably already be sweaty from the movie, following it up by getting even more physical. And then getting more physical.

How About We Rent/Buy Battle Royale Then…

…Watch the Rest of Kinji Fukasaku’s Movies

There’s nothing better for a movie date than following a movie with more movies. Plus, Fukasaku has more than 70 to choose from. Classics like Tora! Tora! Tora! and all of the Yakuza Papers series.
