Don't listen to jaded critics; "Aloha" has the top quality of "Say Anything"
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Yesterday I watched "Aloha," and loved it. I've watched it twice, and I want to watch it again. I don't understand how it could have been panned repeatedly by the critics. "Aloha" is quirky, often funny, sweet, and endearing, even though it's a sprawling, rambling, story with intentionally cinema-verite-flavored camera work at times. Unpredictable, it's not your typical romcom!

Set in the magnificent and mystical landscapes of Hawaii, with the soothing backdrop of lilting Hawaiian music, it's simply unforgettable! And, the cast is stellar: Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, John Krasinski, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, and so many other top performances. We need more films that demand our attention and our intelligence, which show us characters who struggle with ambiguity, recognize life's joys, mysteries, and heartbreaks, and yet still manage to keep their integrity intact. This film will have you talking afterwards ~ and at the least, it will make you happy! Thank you, Cameron Crowe.
