There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

Give it a try. This lives up to its All-Star cast.
I am well aware of all the shade and low reviews thrown at this movie, however this did not stop me from seeing it and frankly I'm glad it didn't. To me it lived up to the All-Star cast, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams AND Bradley Cooper, do I even need to bring up all their academy award nominations?? And they did not disappoint in Aloha. There couldn't be a better setting for the movie than Hawaii, the whole scenery in the movie is beautiful and fits the characters and story well. I will say that a couple parts of the story line fell a bit flat and were slightly disconnected but the overall plot and story played out well which I personally thought made for a great ending. Oh and the subtle humor satisfies the comedy side quite well (thank John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin for a lot of that).
So overall I was very pleased with this film and if you are on the fence as to see this film or not all I have to say is give it a shot!
