So I went on a first date last night with this guy and we hit it off really well. We decided to go to a movie but the whole movie he didn't try to put his arm around me or hold my hand. At the end of the night he said let's do this again and I agreed but he didn't try to kiss me. We still talk, do you think it's bad that he didn't try any contact?

Not at all. I almost never get touchy on first dates, it has to do with cultural standards. Some of us are raised to believe it is inappropriate to initiate romantic physical contact until you have gotten to know someone well enough to start considering a long-term relationships.
For some of us, even something as simple as a kiss on the lips represents a sign of love and closeness which is inappropriate to send out to someone we just met. It doesn't mean he doesn't like you, he might be really turned on by you, and really enthusiastic about seeing where things go with you, but he is probably trying to guard his heart and yours by not letting things develop faster on the physical level than they do on the emotional and verbal levels.0
