I Liked "Aloha" [Jun. 3rd, 2015|08:22 pm]
Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
It got mostly terrible reviews, but I found it engaging and entertaining. In the interest of full disclosure, I would probably pay more than $10.50 to watch Emma Stone be a girl for and hour and a half.  Still, it was not near as bad, as a movie, as the notices would lead you to suspect.  The sciencey part sucked planet-sized raisins---just goofy beyond belief from the perspective of anyone who has any idea how anything actually works.  But that's space-normal (as they say) for Hollywood.  They got praise for mentioning things like time compression and dilation in the movie "Interstellar," but if you happen to know the first thing, last thing or anything in the middle about the theorized distortion of space-time in strong gravitational fields, the scale, proportion and mechanics of the phenomena in "Interstellar" were all off.  Like pretty far off.

Go see "Aloha" if you want to be entertained and say hello to Emma for me.
