Jurassic Park III (2001) Filming Locations

Jurassic Park III (2001) Filming Locations

The Jurassic Park franchise will forever be synonymous with Hawaii. It’s unlikely the next movie will return here for filming, though, considering that 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom blew Isla Nublar to smithereens. But there’s always the second island, Isla Sorna, where both The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III are set. The former included shoots at the Na Pali Coast and Kipu Beach on Kauai but was predominantly filmed in California’s redwood forests. Jurassic Park III filming…

Hiking Lahaina Pali Trail

Hiking Lahaina Pali Trail

My New Year’s Resolution for 2019 was to go on more hikes. (Okay, to at least go on 1 hike.) You’d think this wouldn’t be a problem with all the outdoor opportunities afforded to me as a Maui local, but as someone who spends most of his waking hours typing on a laptop, the concept of hiking is its own mountain to climb. So when my friends pitched me to go with them on the Lahaina Pali Trail – which…

If you’re out strolling Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach, as you no doubt will be some afternoon in between lunch and happy hour on your next visit to Oahu, you’ll no doubt stop at the Duke Kahanamoku statue to pose for a selfie or family photo with the Duke or drape a lei on his outstretched arms or around his neck.

The Legend of Hallowaiian Film Review

The Legend of Hallowaiian Film Review

Animated movies that are set in Hawaii might be something of a rare find, but they’re hardly the stuff of legend. The most popular is easily Disney’s 2002 classic Lilo & Stitch, and there’s also Aloha Scooby Doo (2005). And there are even some animated films that were partly shot in Hawaii, such as Disney’s Dinosaur (2000). Disney can’t have it all, though (even if they really do have most things), because last year saw the release of Hawaiian film…
