MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ is exciting prequel
A growing trend in Hollywood these days is to reinvent long dead franchises. Most famous was Chris Nolan’s recreation of the “Batman” franchise. J.J. Abrams has been very creative with the new “Star Trek” franchise. Now, director Kenneth Branagh has gotten in the act with “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” a regeneration and updating of Tom Clancy’s immensely successful spy/thriller series of books, made even more noteworthy by a four film franchise in the 1980s and 1990s.

It's been ten years since I came to Texas and a small town called Palestine, and in that time I’ve seen many restaurants come and go. I have also talked at many schools and local community events to help promote food, travel, healthy eating, and what it's like to be an international chef. Of course, the most popular question everyone wants to know, “Why are you in Palestine?”
