Halloween H20: 20 Years Later

I got interested in re-watching this after reading an article about it in the latest issue of SFX magazine earlier today. Coming after a few sequels that got worse and worse, this was supposed to be a proper coda for the series, while bringing back Jaime Lee Curtis as well (although it’s a coda that was followed by a sequel, Resurrection, which was then followed by the Rob Zombie reboot and current reboot/sequels). I’ll say that I ended up enjoying the last 15 minutes or so of the movie, w...

Death of Me

I didn’t really know much about this movie other than the setting sounded interesting (a small island in Thailand) and it stars Maggie Q, who I tend to like in movies. I ended up quite enjoying this — it’s horror, but it’s also a mystery, as the main character is trying to understand why strange things are happening to her (and what explains a gruesome video of what appears to be her husband killing her). Well worth watching if you’re on the lookout for a horror film with a different type ...

Hawaii in disarray over planned October 15th start of pre-travel testing program

It’s astounding that this late in the process, Hawaii leaders can’t agree on the way forward to test and allow visitors into the state. As we shared yesterday, Hawaii (Big) Island Mayor Kim has opted out of the pre-travel testing program. Could other islands follow? In a statement on Facebook, Kauai Mayor Kawakami says, “We have not yet made a determination. Decisions must be deliberate and we can’t commit to plans we don’t fully understand.

5 Considerations for a First Time Hotel Buyer | By Jon Peck

The shocking decrease in demand created by COVID-19 crippled balance sheets and sidelined many of the traditional hotel buyers such as hotel REITs, current owners, and Private Equity groups.
