"Beowulf meets the Predator" like the movie cover says.... Jim Caviezel plays a space age soldier who is stranded in the Iron Age when his spaceship crashes to Earth. On a quest to kill a "dragon", he becomes a Viking tribe's prisoner, then its savior.
A lot of action with blood and gore scenes fitting a man versus dragon battle. Entertaining movie but suggest a different movie for at least the first-date.

Comedy with Kevin James playing a mall Security Guard. Down on his luck at work and in love, Paul comes into the limelight when he pits his wits against a group of thieves. The thieves secure the mall and take hostages in a plan to steal security codes from the stores. However, they did not plan on Paul Blart!
Funny movie that takes on a "Bruce Willis Die Hard" feel, just add a few pounds to Bruce. Safe first-date movie, check it out when you get a chance.

Movie with Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams. Eric travels through time without warning. Somehow in his travels, he meets Rachel as a young girl. As they meet again and again over time, they relationship grows into love.
A definite "chick-flick" as wells as a first-date movie. Entertaining storyline, safe for the budding relationship!

Movie with Amy Adams and Meryl Streep as Julie Powell and Julia Childs, respectively. Julie is an aspiring writer working a day job. Inspired by Julia Childs, she decides to cook Julia Childs' 524 recipes (in 365 days) and blog about her experience.
Entertaining movie based on true events. Nice job running parallel storylines of Julie and Julia. Safe first-date movie. Ending good have been better, else it was a good movie.

Movie with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt that can easily fit the IFC and/or Sundance Channel programming format. Great story about a guy unlucky in love, Joseph, meeting the woman of his dreams, Zooey.
A lot of flash backs that take you to different points in their relationship. But don't worry, it does not detract from the movie. Great supporting actors, a solid story, and two leads that mesh well together. Don't miss this one; it is a first-date movie even if the two do not get together (spoiler sorry). That said, liked the surprise ending. Check it out.
