Ron Howard movie about Formula 1 race car drivers James Hunt and Niki Luada.  Good movie. Even better is that it is a true story.  Safe first date movie.  Liked the end where they flash to real life pictures of the drivers!

Bad Grandpa

Johnny Knoxville's latest movie about a Grandpa tasked with delivering his Grandson to his Dad because his Mother is going to jail.  Not a first date movie.  Would not rent it.... Even if you liked his Jackass movies.


Checked this one out at the movie theater.  Has Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore as a US Air Marshall and a passenger on a flight to London, respectively.  Liam has personal issues; Julianne is a friendly passenger seated next to him.  While in the air, Liam gets text to transfer $150M or someone dies every 20".
Good movie, liked it.  Not high on the list of first date movies but would say it's okay given the "whodunit" feel!

300 Rise of an Empire

Sequel to the 300 movie that pitted 300 Spartan soldiers against a million Persians.  Lots of blood and violence.  Would hold as a first date movie.  But, if you liked 300 you will like this movie.

It flashes back and then ties into the first movie, then takes you to a naval battle that ends with a clear winner and loser. However, the ending leaves an opening for another movie!

Took off guard by this one; starts out with a after-school made for TV movie feel.  But, it's story line is great; singing is great,... worse it has a tear or two at the ending.  Check this out when you get a chance.  Do risk it for a first date movie, may convince your possible significant other that you have a "softer" side to you!  Like the cameos of Trace Adkins and Reuben Studdard (sp?) of American Idol!

Man In the Moon

More late night insomnia, more late night channel surfing.  Found this one that had an "Introducing Reese Witherspoon" in the credits.  Liked this one though it's a tear jerker.  Two sisters, one handsome boy, somehow they both fall for him, but....  Risk this one as a first date movie despite the tear or two that may come later!


Movie about the ups and downs of Hank Garland – famous guitar slinger, country music writer, and Opry Legend!
Late night insomnia had me channel surfing; found this one and was pleasantly surprised.  Good movie, hold as a first date rental as the "downs" could impact a budding relationship.  But, do recommend it for a later date!
