Baseball movie with Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill.  Brad plays Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane.  Jonah is his Assistant General Manager Peter Brand.  Together, they build a winning baseball team at the lowest price!  How?  Using statistics and a methodology developed by Bill James – Baseball Guru and the "Sabrematician"!
Good movie but would wait as a first date movie because it is 2.5 hours long and may not interest the non-baseball fan.  However, if you both like baseball, then go for it!

"X-Men - First Class"

Prequel to the X-Men Franchise that provides the background to the forming of the X-Men and the rivalry between Professor X and Magneto.  Host of actors that you will recognize to include Kevin Bacon!  If you like the X-Men Franchise, then you will be good with this movie.  Safe first date movie, too!


Movie that brings to the big screen the mythical characters of Thor.  Natalie Portman plays a scientist who "bumps" into Thor with her car while on a field experiment with her team.  Slow start but picks up.  Easily a safe first date movie, save for your significant other may swoon over Thor's pecs... glad to have waited for the rental but still consider it a good movie.

... High School movie with some new faces in the cast... safe first date movie with a storyline that revolves around Prom, getting a date, and having to recover from a fire that destroyed the decorations.  So much "turmoil",... enjoyed the movie but glad to have rented it rather than pay a premium at the box office.
