Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Saw this one at the movies. Liked it! Safe first date movie; do check it out when you get a chance. If you liked the first one, you should be good with this one. Plus... anticipate more in the franchise per the movie's ending.

Arrival

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in a Sci-Fi movie that pits aliens and humans in a frenzy to learn each others languages. Fail and its war and destruction; succeed and then "it's all good"! Interesting twists and turns. Do check out more on IMDB. Safe first date movie, even with the twist at the end.

The Infiltrator

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and John Leguizamo team up The Infiltrator playing undercover agents who are tasked with infiltrating the drug cartel's money laundering schemes. True story that has lots of action and was surprisingly good. Was not aware of this one; do check it out on DVD some time! For more, see IMDB.

La La Land at the Cinemark at Legacy Last Night

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone together again in a vintage Cinemascope movie! This round Ryan plays Sebastian - a talented but broke jazz pianist working to save enough to open his own Jazz Club. And, Emma plays Mia - a struggling actress trying to start her career in Hollywood.

They meet briefly while in a traffic jam. Later, they bump into each other at a restaurant that Sebastian is playing piano for tips, and then again while at a party!

"Boy meets Girl, Girl meet Boy genre" continues with the two eventually becoming an
"Item" as expected.  Add the lucky breaks and eventual success, and the movie becomes storybook happiness for the two! But, it's the 21st Century; no fairy tale ending for this movie....
Had to see it at the movie theater to get the full effect.  Glad I did... this one is easily a "Safe First Date Movie".

Really liked this one even with the corny breakouts of song and dance the entire movie... it's vintage baby! Do enjoy being entertained by two great actors and check it out when you get a chance! For more on the movie, see IMDB.

Magnificent Seven (2016)

Remake of the classig 60's western Magnificent Seven. Was wary of this one at first but was pleasantly surprised. Did a good job in making this one happen!

Denzel Washington and a host of sidekicks played well together in this movie. Moreover, Peter Sarsgaard bad guy role created the right feel for the "bad guy needs to be put in his place" genre.

Even better, Haley Bennett aka Cora Corman from Music and Lyrics played the damsel in distress role but with a twist - this one is pretty and can shoot, too!

For more on the movie, see it on IMDB.

Star Wars Rogue One

Another in the Star Wars franchise. Not a big fan of the franchise but after a slow start did like the movie and its tie in to the next movie... think this one was a prequel given the ending. Safe first date movie; thrown in the hot apple pie a la mode that the Cinema Diner was offering and all was good! For more on the movie, see it on IMDB.

Hacksaw Ridge

War movie that focuses on acts of valor to save lives rather than take them. Lots of blood and guts but worth the premium to see it at the theater! Directed by Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge is a true story about Medal of Honor recipient Desmond Doss - an Army Medic and conscientious objector, who saves 75 men during the battle for Okinawa - see more on IMDB!


13 Hours

Movie that provides a shooter's point of view of the crisis in Libya. Good movie with lots of shooting. Does not place blame on Hillary; does bring to light the delays in assistance both to the Ambassador and to the CIA "Annex". See more on IMDB!


Independence Day: Resurgence

Sequel to the original released in 1996. Now twenty years later, they - alien bad guys, are back! So, are a few characters from 1996. Was an entertaining movie that tied in well with the original. This one is a safe first date movie - see more on IMDB!
