Movie re­view missed the mark

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR -

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.
