James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams in a prequel fantasy film to the Wizard of Oz. Was pleasantly surprised; liked how the movie provide more detail on the background on the relationship of the Witches.
Giving this one a first date movie rating,... that is, if you enjoy fantasy movies!

Gerard Butler - in a based on true events movie, plays Frosty - an old school big wave surfer. Through a chance meeting he saves a boy's life - Jay Moriarty. The same Jay Moriarty who later became famous for a cover photo of Surfer magazine where he is wiping out at the crest of a huge wave - one of the Mavericks at Half-Moon Bay.
Good movie, did not know it was a true story till the end. Consider it a first date movie but tread lightly in case your potential future significant other does not care for surfer -l ife lesson - true stories.
Here is a move for kids that has Adam Sadler and Selena Gomez voice overs for characters Drax (short for Dracula) and Mavis (his daughter), respectively. Drax runs the Hotel Transylvania - a hotel where monsters can relax. He is a widower who lost his wife to a fire caused by Humans! On his daughter's 118th birthday, Drax throws a huge party to include fulfilling a promise to let her see the World....
God movie that even adults will like. Not certain if it is a first date movie as it deals with Father-Daughter conflict that may be to strong a theme for a first time get together with someone. Would wait on this one but do watch it later as the relationship grows.

Here is a romance/drama that fits the Indie Channel. The movie has Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame and a cast of others; the lead of which is played by Logan Lerman, an introvert High School Freshman who is taken in by upperclassmen Emma and her stepbrother.
Good movie but would hold as a first date movie; was hoping for a more upbeat movie. Turned out to be more on the sad side. Regardless, do check it out on a rainy day once you and your significant other are settled in a relationship!
