Another in the Star Wars franchise. Not a big fan of the franchise but after a slow start did like the movie and its tie in to the next movie... think this one was a prequel given the ending. Safe first date movie; thrown in the hot apple pie a la mode that the Cinema Diner was offering and all was good! For more on the movie, see it on IMDB.

War movie that focuses on acts of valor to save lives rather than take them. Lots of blood and guts but worth the premium to see it at the theater! Directed by Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge is a true story about Medal of Honor recipient Desmond Doss - an Army Medic and conscientious objector, who saves 75 men during the battle for Okinawa - see more on IMDB!

Sequel to the original released in 1996. Now twenty years later, they - alien bad guys, are back! So, are a few characters from 1996. Was an entertaining movie that tied in well with the original. This one is a safe first date movie - see more on IMDB!

Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, and JK Simmons in a pleasant surprise of a movie. Hugh is a one hit wonder screen writer who takes a job teaching at a small university. Marisa is a single mom, student, and part time worker who has a liking to Hugh. JK is the nice but by the rules university president.
Was flipping through the channels and landed on this movie. Entertaining movie!

Tom Cruise's sequel to the first movie in the Jack Reacher franchise. This round Jack deals with a conspiracy that has a potential love interest's life in danger... add an illegitimate daughter and lots of fist fights, and the sequel is okay.
Something that the first movie captured is missing this round. Still enjoyed watching it, but would likely have waited for the DVD instead of seeing it at the Movie House.

How to Be Single is a 2016 American romantic comedy film and is based on the novel of the same name by Liz Tuccill. Was not certain on this one, but rented it. Liked the movie; funny moments to keep this going. Would hold as a first date movie given the movie's title... "How To Be Single". But, do check it out after a few more dates later with your significant other!

Good movie with Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nelisse set in Workd War II Germany. Sophie play Liesel - a young girl adopted by a Geoffrey and Emily who play an elderly German couple. Liesel cannot read and is quickly taunted by schoolmates for being dumb.
However, after her adopted parent's take in Max - a Jew hiding from the Nazis, Liesel befriends him, and they soon form a lasting friendship. Learning of her illiteracy, Max teaches her to read and write which will eventually play a key role in Liesel's adult life.
Good movie, starts slow but does pick up - especially like Liesel and her schoolmate/friend Rudy and their interaction with each other as kids! Do see this one when you get the chance!

Just came back from the Movies... saw Revenant starring Leondardo DiCaprio as Mountain Man and Scout Hugh Glass. After being mauled by a bear, left for dead, Hugh comes back from near death and takes revenge on the man that killed his son.
Glad to have seen this one at the Theater, did not mind paying the premium on tickets (Friday Night opener in Dallas). May be a little queasy for a first date movie with all the blood and guts but we do say don't miss this one!
