The Vow

Movie with Rachael MacAdams and Channing Tatum as a young couple dealing with the Rachael's memory loss after a car accident.  Rachael remembers nothing about  her life with Channing.

Story drags at times but still makes an entertaining movie.  Safe first date movie.

One for the Money

Katherine Heigl plays a divorced, down on her luck, unemployed woman.  To make ends meet she takes on a job as a Recovery Agent - Bounty Hunter.  Slow action.  Could have been better.  Save for a rainy day, and hold as a first date movie.

One Hit from Home

Baseball movie about a Pro Baseball Player who leaves the game due to a knee injury.  Some how he gets pulled in to coaching a College Team struggling to win.

Slow movie that could use help in the storyline.  Don't recommend it as a first date movie.  Pick something else.

New Year's Eve

Movie on the same lines as Valentine's Day.  Cast of characters and multiple storylines make for an entertaining movie.  Safe first date movie.  Check it out some time.

Had to check out all the hype about Avengers.  Watched it in 3D and was pleased.  Even better, Scarljo was in it as the Black Widow.  And of course, we always like her movies!  This one gets a First Date rating easily.

"J. Edgar Hoover"

Movie directed by Clint Eastwood about FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.  Stars Leonardo Dicaprio as Hoover.  The movie takes the viewer from the Bureau's start and it ascendancy through the years.  Touches on some of the controversy on Hoover's close friend and confidant Agent Tolson, secret files maintained by his Secretary Ms. Gandy, and the run ins with Congress and Presidents.
Good movie but too long for a first date.  Better to rent it after the relationship has matured.
