ometimes even I am too tired to watch a movie with subtitles. I picked Aloha on demand because it wasn"t too long, basically. Wow, what a mess of a movie. I knew it had gotten lots of bad press because of the whitewashing casting of Emma Stone in a character that is supposed to be a quarter Hawaiian and part Chinese , Captain Allison Ng. Cameron Crowe has made some really fantastic films, but lately he seems to have lost his way. My issues with the film are beyond the whitewashing, but why Cameron Crowe didn"t just make Emma Stone's step-father Hawaiian or something, I don"t know. She's supposed to be a believer in Hawaiian legends and superstitions in the plot. I guess he based the character on a real red-headed Hawaiian woman, but he should have seen the controversy coming.
