Movie review missed the mark
For about 40 years, I have been going to the movies two to three times a week. The only thing that stops me is if there is nothing to see. I liked the trailer for “Aloha” and like everyone involved in it but didn’t go for two weeks because the reviews made it seem like the worst film ever made. But then I did go see it, and I loved the film. [“Timing Is Everything in Comedies,” June 21].
I thought Emma Stone was great in it, and it was more than respectful to Hawaiians. It had problems, but what comedy doesn’t these day? I did see “Spy,” which was terrible. Then I realized that the reviews came from critics who had read the stolen email from a studio boss who hated her own film. Films with bad reputations going in get bad reviews.
