Daniel Craig in his third James Bond movie as 007!  This one gives more detail about his background.  And, had lots of action that keeps viewers interested.  Like his first movie as Bond, second one not as much, third one was as good as the first one.

This one gets a first date movie rating!

Oz the Great and Powerful

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!

Chasing Mavericks

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.

Hotel Transylvania

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.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

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!
