Did Flight scare you off flying?

FlightDenzelSaw FLIGHT with Denzel Washington, who is nominated for a Best Actor Oscar – a great portrayal of a not so perfect man, an airline pilot who is caught for his lifestyle mistakes when he saves a plane and nearly all its passengers from a certain death. When an investigation is carried out to look into the details of the crash, Whip’s troubling lifestyle begins to surface.

Along with a great supporting cast, this is a throw back to the in-depth characters and semi-heroes of some of the all time great movies.  Nothing is all good or all bad.

Word of warning, this movie is not for kids, not only are the actual flight  and crash scenes scary, the language, nudity and overall subject matter, although it teaches an important lesson, is really not for kids or families to watch together. I cringed in quite a few places.

Did you see it?  Tell us your impressions.   Does Denzel deserve the Oscar, or WHO do you think does?

And the big question this movies leaves us with, is – did Flight scare you off flying?!

Now at Raleighwood. Check website for showtimes and other current movies.

Why do women eat salad on dates?

At Raleighwood we see dining patterns, and it’s really interesting what and when people eat what!

Just saw a great article about Salads – women vs men. Psychologists have discovered that if a woman was sitting with men, she was more likely to eat food of a ‘lower caloric value’ than if she was sitting with other women.

The salad leaves are meant to say “I’m pretty; I’m attractive; I take care of myself,”

Men, on the other hand, seem to have no such need to alter their food intake to impress the opposite sex. The study showed that they eat pretty much the same regardless of who their dining companions are.

So, bring a date to Raleighwood tonight, or come as a group, enjoy a great movie,  and take advantage of today’s Menu Special – get a 99¢ side salad with each entree order.
