... Movie with a number of well known actors/actresses that pits vampires and humans against one another.  Set in apocalyptic world (think desert/western scenes), humans have won the war against vampires as a result of superhuman fighters called Priests.  However, with the war won and the vampires imprisoned, the Priests are no longer needed.  That is, until an army of Vampires strikes!
Think sequel based on the movie's ending but still liked it.  Safe first date movie; check it out some time!

... comedy with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Justin Bateman, and a host of
others. Storyline revolves around a space alien named Paul – voice by Seth
Rogen, and its escape from the "Government". Simon and Nick are two Sci-Fi
Geeks from England on a quest to visit key UFO landmarks in the USA. While

Funny movie, safe first date movie (save for some profane language here and
there). Was expecting a flop but found it to be funny! Check it out when
you get a chance.

Liam Neeson plays a biologist who is traveling to Germany for a conference.  Accompanied with his wife, they plan to make the trip a dual business as well as personal trip!  Sounds like a harmless plot (synonymous for boring). However, after a turn of events that start with a lost briefcase, which leads to a car crash, and then partial amnesia, the storyline gets better... easily hooking viewers to watch the movie to find out why his wife does not remember him, an impostor has taken his place at the conference, and also as his wife's husband.
Good movie, safe first date movie.  Like the twists in the plot and how things tie together in the end!

"The Eagle"

A Roman Legion is lost in a battle with the Britons and an Eagle is taken by the victors!  Years later the son of the leader of the Roman Legion returns to lead his own men.  However, after a bloody battle, the son is wounded and eventually retired.  Not stopped by his physical limitations, he decides to regain his family honor by recovering the lost Eagle!
Hold as a first date movie and save it for a rainy day rental.  Movie was okay, just not one to serve up on a first date.
