Did You Know?


Prosecutors said Wozniak, 34, a former actor, killed and dismembered Samuel Eliezer Herr, 26, of Costa Mesa in 2010 in order to steal his money to pay for a wedding and honeymoon with Buffett. Wozniak had planned on stealing $62,000 from Herr, who had saved up the cash from when he served in the Army in Afghanistan. Murphy said Google searches from Wozniak's computer in 2010 showed queries like "how load shotgun" and "how to hide a body." Authorities said Wozniak also shot Herr's friend, Julie Kibuishi, 23, then tried to frame the dead man for her murder by making it seem like he killed her and vanished. Daniel Wozniak is serving life in prison after being convicted in December 2015. (AP) A few days after the slayings, Wozniak was arrested at his bachelor party in Huntington Beach, the Los Angeles Times reported. Authorities said Wozniak confessed to the killings and was convicted in December 2015 of "two counts of murder and was later sentenced to death." See more »

"Endless Summer" in one country
14 October 1999 | by TroyAirSee all my reviews

Fans of "Endless Summer" will appreciate the documentary feel of this film about two guys and a second-hand Chevy Suburban that travel through Mexico on vacation looking for perfect surfing spots. Along the way, they make new friends at each stop, trying true Mexican home-made cooking, and generally experiencing a good surfing adventure. And we're along for the ride. That's the reason its become a classic cult film in the surfing world.

A simple, no-frills, good-time film that gives the audience a chance to experience a taste of a surfer's dream - to travel, surf, eat, sleep, and surf some more. Its kind of like watching someone's Summer vacation home movies, but with better camerawork, better narration, and a vacation that is actually interesting and entertaining. If you're thinking of going to Mexico, you'll want to see this film so you'll know which spots to visit.

No nudity (except for one scene where the guys wear T-backs on a beach as a result of losing a bet with a friend), no harsh language, no gore (except for a bit of blood when one of the guys finds a rock in the surf zone with his head), and no violence. Nothing offensive whatsoever. A good family movie, and you don't need a family to enjoy it.
