Once again I am soooooo glad I have my, hot, intelligent, funny, LOW MAINTAINENCE wife. When I went to Target last night I asked the wife what she would like me to get on HD DVD, Van Helsing or An American Werewolf in London if they have either of them otherwise get what you want. We started with similar tastes and after 13 years of marriage our taste in movies is pretty much identical.
When dealing with women that are not my wife I've found its best to play to the woman's point of view. Braveheart sounds like a man's movie until you explain that he did it all for love.
This can be done with a number of top PQ HD DVDs:
The Corpse Bride is just a Romantic Comedy
King Kong is essentially a love triangle
Seabiscuit is a feel good film
Aeon Flux is a woman's action flick, every woman I know likes movies where women beat up on men for most of the feature.
You could also sell her on any of the Mummy movies based on Brendan Frasier or The Rock.
If you can't sell her on any of those I feel for you man because it means your woman has a very narrow scope of films she will watch. At that point your only option would be to play the feelings card. You know something to the extent of, Darling I know The Departed is not really your type of movie, but it's important to me and I want to share the experience with you. I feel like it could be a growing experience for our relationship, et cetera, et cetera
