The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Second in the Hobbit franchise brings viewers up to date on the journey... that said, would have preferred to wait till all three movies were out before seeing any one of them.  No worries though; this one leaves you hanging like the first movie.  So, get ready to wait a while to see the final episode.  Long movie... unless your date is a fan, would wait for this one to come out as a rental.  Better yet, wait till the last movie is out, and then watch the first and second movie as a refresher, and then see the final movie.  PS:  Liked the red-headed she-elf!

Movie about a child abduction of two girls and the extreme measures their fathers take to find them.  Strong story line but way too slow in the action to make it as a first date movie.  Also, would save renting it for a rainy day; not a first choice given other movies that are out.

The Lone Ranger

Movie of the vintage classic TV Series - The Lone Ranger.  Not sure why it did not make it well at the movies but this one gets a safe first date rating. Okay to rent... liked how the story provided more details on the origin of the Lone Ranger and his sidekick Tonto!
