I don't have pics, but IFC (Independant Films Channel) iconoclasts series, the Laird Hamilton/Eddie Vedder episode, Laird points to a couple large tikis in his yard & says "we've gotten some guardians".

A little tiki action here, Hawaiian style...new movie, 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'. Looks pretty funny (maybe). Here's a link to the official trailer:

Last night I watched the most gawdawful movie I've ever seen, "Tiki"...a slasher film featuring a miniature Coco Joe figurine that runs around jabbering in a high, squeaky voice and skinning dorm girls alive. Other than the fact that there's a tiki in it, this film has absolutely no redeeming features whatsoever. The acting, camerawork, script, and special effects are all absolutely terrible. I'd rather be strapped into a chair and forced to watch an Ed Wood marathon for 24 hours straight than ever catch a glimpse of this turkey again. I feel unclean for having watched it, and will spend the rest of my life trying to get that hour and 22 minutes of my life back again.

Here's a couple of less gory screencaps:

Sorry, I should have warned every one about that flick. I bought it over a year ago and still haven't fully recovered. Mrbalihai failed to mention that "Tiki" also features some of the most unwanted nudity ever featured (my eyes still burn from the one girl getting naked).

I was fortunate enough to unload this stinker on Amazon almost immediately after watching it. It's kind of like the video in "The Ring" (or "Ringu" for fans of Japanese cinema). You have to make someone else watch it or you die! You are warned MrBaliHai . . . pass it on before it takes your soul!

I didn't "fail" to mention it, I "thoughtfully avoided" mentioning it... But since you brought the subject up, there's also a camwhore lesbian scene that's pretty awful as well. Bad horror, bad softcore pr0n, this film ain't got anything at all.

I would rather let the curse die with me than subject anyone else to it.

I am watching Disney's "Lt. Robin Crusoe USN" and am finding it MOST enjoyable for many reasons. I actually saw this a long long time ago at a drive-in and only remembered images...but this is a great, fun movie.

Not sure how many folks watch "FOX & Friends" on Sat & Sun mornings but they have this graphics intro with iconic images from throught the USA and one of the first ones you see is a big Tiki. Maybe Ruppert M. is a closet tikiphile?

I'm guessing that this may have been mentioned, and probably goes without say, but Season 2 of Hawaii Five-O has an episode called "Kamehameha Blues" which has amazing TIKI closeups in the Bishop Museum...Tikis EVERYWHERE in that one.

Kinda to be expected for Five-O, but the TIPSY factor was particularly high in that one.

I know the movie CASINO was mentioned in this thread about a year ago. I was watching it last night and noticed the 'muffin meltdown' scene occurred at the Aku Aku.

Although mentioned earlier starting this week is the comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and if we are to believe the still has the Jason Segel in a clothing optional tiki bar. Watch out for those hot buttered rums.

Doesn't he know you're supposed to always sit on a towel when in a clothing option place.

Eeeewwwwww........

Here's a screencap from Elvis Presley's "Paradise, Hawaiian Style". This was the only tiki I spotted in the whole film. Considering what utter crap this movie was, I felt cheated.

I'm sure everyone has seen the latest Backyardigans featuring Tiki Beach!

Oh, BTW Janet, I'm glad you understand the proper clothing optional hygiene thing. Does beg the question a bit though.....

Anyway. I looked it up:

Any clothing optional or nude facility may have their own rules, but generally the following guidelines will be appropriate.

* Always keep a towel handy and put it over any furniture you sit on. (Good hygiene)
* Don't stare or "gawk" at other people who are nude.
* Refrain from any crude or lewd remarks about another persons body or appearance.
* No photography. Save your picture taking for when nobody else is around and/or ask permission if anyone else is going to be included in your photographs or videos.
* Observe the "rules of the house". If a facility designates that clothing must be worn in certain areas, or at certain times - please comply.

I just watched "Alpha Dog" last night. A somewhat depressing movie based on a true story murder that occurred in my hometown of Santa Barbara in 2000. The movie uses Palm Springs as the setting for the crime rather than Santa Barbara, as the movie was shot while the trial was still going on.

The movie has a party scene filmed at the Caliente Tropics Hotel in Palm Springs. It includes some great shots of an interior suite room and a night-time skinny dipping scene at the pool with the Tikis all lit up. The Tropics party scene lasts for about 10 minutes and shows quite a bit of the interior and exterior of the hotel grounds.

Mr.BaliHai,

What'ya mean no Tikis in "Paradise, Hawaiian Style"? Here is a promo picture from the movie which was taken at the Polynesian Cultural Center. Lots of Tikis, Hula Girls, Waterfalls, and of course Elvis!
