Goofs

USAF personnel are shown outdoors in uniform but not wearing hats. Regulations require all service personnel to wear headgear ("covers") outdoors, which must be removed when indoors. However, when USAF personnel are located on the flightline (aircraft operations area), the wear of headgear is strictly prohibited as they could easily be ingested into aircraft intakes causing major damage to engines and other mechanics. In addition, base commanders have the authority to declare a "no hat/no salute" parameter for celebrations/receptions on the flightline even if nearby aircraft are stationary and powered down.

Quotes

[first lines]
Brian Gilcrest: [narrating] 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.

Cameron, What Happened?
30 May 2015 | by condillonSee all my reviews

Aloha follows the story of Brian Gilcrest, a celebrated military contractor who returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs and re-connects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for a hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to him. Coming from Cameron Crowe, you initially know what to feel and what to contemplate when a film of his comes to the screen, he certainly did deliver all of his usual statistics in this but something was a bit off about all the accusations in the final results of this film. A good thing about making a film understandable is to have a comprehensible plot, the one question I was asking myself throughout most the film is "What's The Plot?", I had no Idea what was going on, the film didn't give any hint or accusation that made me wonder what the film is about until like a hour in. The forced affinity and love connection between Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone's characters didn't really fasten well, it really gets all up in your face. Given that Cooper's character hated Stone's character for half of the film and then suddenly they just fall for each other in a blink of a eye just doesn't mesh together properly. The only good chemistry was between Cooper and McAdam's characters really because they showed more emotion to each other. The script was a bit despondent with a lot of it not making any actual sense and have nothing to do with the film but at times it was actually quick-witted and clever that made you wish it was kept like throughout the film. The editing was cut really promptly with you saying "Wait, What?", it really continued to happen continually throughout the film with no premise to what happens in a few scenes. You could really recognize all of Crowe's attributes with the soothing soundtrack, clever dialogue and brilliant humor that sparks out so effectively. Bill Murray and Alec Baldwin were really underused in this film with their lack of screen time. Overall, this film did have a sufficient ending that I loved but really didn't make up for the rest of it, It continually had its moments but it did have some witty aspects that won me over but really this was one disappointing trip.
