Haha! Unfortunately they were probably burned after filming but who knows, Maybe a local has one rotting in his backyard. Too bad we don't have many TCers there to investigate "the mystery missing moai matter" for us. Sounds like a title for a "Hardy Boys" episode.

Anybody see "American Ultra"? I liked it, but besides that, the story is framed around Jesse Eisenberg obsession on things Hawaiian. Like Stephen Baldwin's character in "Under the Hula Moon" (1995), Jessie plays Hawaiian music, wears Aloha shirts and has a major goal to visit Hawai'i. But unlike Baldwin and like Al Pacino in "Scarface" (1983), Jessie’s Aloha shirt gets covered in blood.

Eisenberg in "American Ultra"


Pacino in "Scarface'


Baldwin IN "Under the Hula Moon" (that is supposed to be sunblock on his nose)


P.S. Anyone is there a Aloha shirt on screen thread? Might be a good subject.

Sorry, unfortunately "American Ultra" has no tikis that I noticed and to the best of my knowledge either does "Scarface" but "Under the Hula Moon" has some straight out of a Party City catalog.

Re-watched a really bad but good B-Grade horror movie the other night from the late 80's called Brain Damage that i would have seen when it first came out and was long before i was into Tiki. The opening scenes include a lot of primitive carvings, most of it is what i think is African but there are a few really great PNG pieces. I've included the screen grabs i took of everything just to show you all as reference.







And this probably should go in the Food and Drinks forum but i thought i'd show it here as it was part of the opening scene and caught my eye. It's not Coco Lopez but it's Coco something. Anyone know what it is?

It's Coco Goya, cream of coconut put out by Goya. I've used it on occasion. I remember that label design from the 80's.
