Movie Reviews

How to have a bad time in Hawaii by Globetrekker.
Moniker Mike | 08/26/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This show does not tell you where good hotels can be found, what tours to take, where to eat, etc. This 60 minute show is really geared for the young, hip, counter-cultured (very left-leaning) Euro-American who likes to travel around Europe with only a back-pack on their shoulders. Don't get me wrong: I enjoy the spontaneity and the adventure of the idea, but it just doesn't translate very well to Hawaii.

I question staying at a hostel in Oahu for $17 a night considering that you will pay in excess of $500+ per flight to Oahu from the continental U.S. in the first place. I was also very unimpressed by the hostess's willingness to hitchhike to places: Kauai seemed to be the only place where hitchhiking is the only way to get around. Other islands offer car rentals, which is the normal way people get around (call me old-fashioned).

The show did highlight some different aspects of the Hawaii... from Kauai as being the non-tourist destination, to Oahu as the site of Pearl Harbor, to the crater of Haleakala in Mauai, to the lava flows from the Kilauea volcano in the Big Island.

Overall, I would not use my own money to buy this show... in the spirit of everything globetrekker, I would try to pawn some worthless stuff for it instead."
Hippie's guide
Ivan V. Afanasyev | Oregon, USA | 11/05/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"When I got this video I expected to see some points of interest, some history, some advice for a traveler. Well, there are some of these things in the video but they serve only as a background. This video is poorly put together political statements of a 20 something year old which has a quality of a high school project. She spends way too much time discussing politically sensitive issues such as gay marriage and the right of natives for their land, but with very little content useful for tourists or people interested in Hawaii's sites. This is definitely not a travel guide. Probably if you are a hippie you will appreciate that the only hotel reviewed in the video is a hostel with bunk beds and the featured rental car company is a junk car loaning place. Do not be misguided."
Low quality DVD

Don't waste your money

"I bought 2 dvds and 1 book just before we left for Hawaii. (Nov. 17-26, 2007). This video is VERY slow and does not show anything you can't see on-line. It shows still photos with a narrative. And...the photos are from the early 80s. There is no action here. You are better off buying something else. There are other dvds for less!"
