Waikiki Review: An Assured Exploration of Hawaii’s Cultural Trauma

Waikiki Review: An Assured Exploration of Hawaii’s Cultural Trauma
Offering a literal behind-the-scenes glimpse of the iconic tourist spot, Christopher Kahunahana’s splendid debut feature, Waikiki, is a succinct emotional dive into the complex intergenerational trauma that plagues many Native Hawaiians. Foregrounding the stark economic divide between the resorts and the city, Kahunahana’s film is purportedly the first film written and directed by a Native Hawaiian. A marvel of economic storytelling, Waikiki spotlights the social and spiritual erosion of colonial tourism on the indigenous population.

The film follows Kea (Danielle Zalopany), a hard working native Hawaiian who is balancing three jobs while living out of her van, and saving enough money for a room. One drunken night, after a fight with her abusive boyfriend (Jason Quinn), she flees in her van – hitting a homeless man, Wo (Peter Shinkoda) in the process. Distraught, she puts Wo into her van, eventually shuttling him around as she attempts to maintain her rotating jobs.

A 'Lynchian' Look at Paradise - First Trailer for 'Waikiki' Hawaiian Film

A 'Lynchian' Look at Paradise  - First Trailer for 'Waikiki' Hawaiian Film
"A combination of beauty, pain, and longing..." An official trailer has debuted for a strange, mesmerizing new film titled Waikiki, marking the feature directorial debut of native Hawaiian filmmaker Christopher Kahunahana. One of the quotes in this trailer even says this "marks the emergence of a New Hawaiian Cinema" which actually might be the case. As much as that is superlative, this film seems like it might be the first of its kind - showing us a side of Hawaii we've never seen before. When a hula dancer on the run crashes into a broken spirit of a man (a mysterious homeless guy in the dead of night), they begin a journey into a hidden world, developing a connection through humanity, nature, and their culture. The indie film stars Danielle Zalopany as Kea, along with Peter Shinkoda, Jason Quinn, Kimo Kahoano, Nick Masciangelo, and Kainoa Mcgee. There's tons of peculiar,

‘Daredevil’ Actor Accuses Marvel TV Boss of Deliberately Cutting Asian Character Storylines

‘Daredevil’ Actor Accuses Marvel TV Boss of Deliberately Cutting Asian Character Storylines
Peter Shinkoda, who played crime boss Nobu Yoshioka in nine episodes of Marvel’s Netflix superhero series “Daredevil,” revealed during Comic-Con@Home (via The Wrap) that former Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb deliberately cut out stories centered on Asian characters from the series. Loeb allegedly told the “Daredevil” writers room that “nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people” in film and television projects. One storyline that Loeb reportedly cut deepened the relationship between Shinkoda’s Nobu and Wai Ching Ho’s character, Madame Gao.

“Jeph Loeb told the writers room not to write for Nobu and Gao — and this was reiterated many times by many of the writers and showrunners,” Shinkoda said. “[Loeb said], ‘Nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people. There were three previous Marvel movies, a trilogy called ‘Blade’ that was made where Wesley Snipes killed 200 Asians each movie. Nobody gives a shit so don’t write about Nobu and Gao,

‘Daredevil’ Actor Peter Shinkoda Reveals Racism Behind The Scenes

‘Daredevil’ Actor Peter Shinkoda Reveals Racism Behind The Scenes
Though Marvel TV in its previous iteration is at this point all but extinct, there is still much to discuss about the now-canceled flagship of the Netflix/Marvel collaboration, Daredevil. Speaking on a livestream organized by the #SaveDaredevil campaign, actor Peter Shinkoda, who played Nobu, leader of The Hand, revealed that Jeph Loeb, then-head of Marvel TV, had purposefully cut storylines for his character while claiming “nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people.”

One of the most glaring problems with “Daredevil” and its partner show “The Defenders” were their slight and stereotypical portrayals of their Asian characters, when they weren’t just part of a faceless mob of ninjas for the eponymous hero to beat up.

Daredevil’s Peter Shinkoda Blasts Former Marvel TV Boss For Not Caring About Asian People

Daredevil’s Peter Shinkoda Blasts Former Marvel TV Boss For Not Caring About Asian People
If recent comments by Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson are anything to go by, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to make diversity and inclusion one of the pillars of their output throughout Phase Four and beyond, with rumors that it could even lead to wholesale changes for the franchise’s roster of marquee superheroes.

Projects like Black Panther II, The Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, among others, seem to reinforce this notion, but in an explosive new interview, Daredevil‘s Peter Shinkoda, who played Nobu in seasons 1 and 2, claims that former Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb actively discouraged the writers on the show from fleshing out or giving backstories to the Netflix series’ Asian characters.

Daredevil star Peter Shinkoda says that former Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb made anti-Asian comments to the writers of the popular Netflix series behind the scenes.

“Jeph Loeb told the writer’s room not to write for Nobu and Gao, and this was reiterated many times by many of the writers and showrunners, that nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people… so don’t write about Nobu and Gao,” remarked Shinkoda (via Cbm), who was joined on the stream by Daredevil co-stars Geoffrey Cantor and Tommy Walker. “And they were

‘Daredevil’ Actor Peter Shinkoda Claims Jeph Loeb Made Anti-Asian Comments During Production Of Netflix Series
Daredevil Actor Peter Shinkoda took a stand on Sunday during #SaveDaredevilCon as he claimed that former head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said anti-Asian comments during the production of the series.

Shinkoda plays Nobu Yoshioka who is part of the Hand in the series. During a panel with fellow actors Geoffrey Cantor and Tommy Walker, Shinkoda talked about how there was a story about Nobu in the works that dove deeper into his relationship with Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) but it as scrapped.

Constance Wu Slams the Academy For Casey Affleck's Oscar Nomination
The 2017 Oscar nominations were revealed on Tuesday, and as anticipated, Casey Affleck is up for best actor for his role in Manchester by the Sea. While his performance in the film has put him in the spotlight, it has also shone a light on the multiple allegations of sexual harassment against him from 2010. Though both cases were eventually settled out of court, some people are not happy with how he is being celebrated so far this award season. Shortly after the nominations were released, Fresh Off the Boat actress Constance Wu took to social media to call out the actor and the Academy. "Men who sexually harass women 4 Oscar!" she wrote.

Daredevil Delivers: Season Two Continues the Excellence (Spoilers)

  • Cinelinx
For those who feared that the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil series wouldn’t equal the outstanding quality of the first year, then worry no more…Daredevil’s sophomore season is just as good as the first year, and much of that is due to the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), who steals the show. We review the season, but beware of spoilers.

With two seasons under its red belt, it has to be stated now that the Netflix Daredevil series is the finest super hero comic-based show ever produced. When the first year debuted, it was the single best season of any comic book to TV adaptation, but it was still too premature to call it the best comic book show ever. Now, after two years and 26 episodes, it has to be said…Daredevil is on a level above any other super hero show.

Spoilers ahead…
