New Movies, Old Moves: 3 Classic Hollywood War/Romance Films
by Sandra Olmsted
Several of the films this spring display an interesting development. As the audience has shifted from solely the 17-34 year old male demographic, filmmakers have adapted Classic Hollywood filmmaking styles to lure other audiences into the theaters. The baby boomers, retirees, and empty nesters go to the movies more, a trend documented in varies trade journals over the past several years. To appeal to this demographic, the best filmmakers have successfully selected a unique combination of strong classic narratives, magical realism, cerebral storytelling, stylish special effects, wide audience appeal, and lofty themes.
The Dining Divas
I’m always excited when we find a new restaurant that’s delicious, down to earth, and affordable, and the Dining Divas discovered another in the U-City loop area at Salt and Smoke. The sign out front says it’s barbecue, beer, and bourbon, and that means…it’s good eating.

It was a pleasant spring evening. You know the kind. Jacket weather. Not quite warm enough for flip flops but warm enough to question wearing boots. The pollen hadn’t started to attack yet. The bees and flies were still south for the winter. And the sunset was such a lovely site. That’s what I remember thinking walking into the Dining Diva destination for this past month. What a wonderful night!
