Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
This one sticks with you. Forget the plot bumps, muscle acting, and tweet-length dialogue. Finishing the film in Paul Walker's honor clearly brought out the best in everyone.
 

Mark Jenkins- NPR
As zippy, playful and amiably preposterous as the best of the previous models.
 

Richard Corliss- TIME Magazine
It's an enormous, steroidal blast, and as much ingenious fun as a blockbuster can be.

Tumbleweeds5pm: TUMBLEWEEDS 1925, family friendly, no rating.  Tumbleweeds marked silent-screen cowboy legend William S. Hart's grand finale, as Hart's brand of individualism and moody morality gave way to the more action-oriented films of Tom Mix and the epic westerns of The Covered Wagon and The Iron Horse. Tumbleweeds takes place in 1899 when the Cherokee Strip was opened up to homesteaders. When that happens, Don Carver (Hart), the range boss for the Box K Tumbleweeds (1925) Poster

 

Ranch, finds himself out of work. Carver falls in love with Molly Lassiter (Barbara Bedford), the daughter of one of the families of homesteaders who have gathered in Caldwell, Kansas, preparing for the big land rush. Carver joins up with the homesteaders in the hope that he can get a piece of land and claim the site of the Box K ranchhouse, which controls the water for the strip. But he is falsely arrested and has to break free to take part in the land rush. Although King Baggot is credited as the sole director, Hart co-directed the film.

Modern reviews of Tumbleweeds consider the movie as unique for its era in its depiction of Native Americans who weren't faceless villains but Hart's friends and included African Americans among the boomers of 1889.  John Nesbitt wrote that Hart went out on a high note with Tumbleweeds.[4] "Tumbleweeds stands up remarkably well, and most film devotees will find it among the more interesting and entertaining melodramas of the silent era", wrote Nesbitt.[4] Tammy Stone wrote that Hart was to Westerns what Chaplin was to comedy and that Hart managed to "both stay in the game and go out with a bang" in his last film Tumbleweeds.[5] Hart's "last film is widely considered to be his masterpiece, and also one of the seminal films of the silent era".

 

Paniolos6:30 pm:  Charles Boy's footage of Hawaii 1937  Footage shot on the Big Island of Hawaii. Footage includes "Hawaiian cowboys" also known as Paniolo "cowboys," possibly at the Parker Ranch, working with sheep and herding cattle to a boat. Paniolos are shown on horseback in the water herding cattle, cattle being carried along side of small water craft to larger boat where the cattle are hoisted onto the boat and placed in cattle pens where the sheep are already located. Also shown is a horse being carefully hoisted in a crate. Footage also includes Hawaiian "hula" dances performed on the grounds of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

 
 
 
Blazing Saddles 7pm: BLAZING SADDLES (R)
Blazing Saddles is a 1974 satirical Western comedy film directed by Mel Brooks. Starring Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder, the film was written by Brooks, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, Norman Steinberg, and Al Uger, and was based on Bergman's story and draft.[3] The movie was nominated for three Academy Awards, and is ranked No. 6 on the American Film Institute's 100 Years...100 Laughs list.
 

This hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town scheduled for demolition by an encroaching railroad. Little and co-star Gene Wilder have great chemistry, and the delightful supporting cast includes Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, and Madeline Kahn as a chanteuse modelled on Marlene Dietrich. As in Young Frankenstein (1974), Silent Movie (1976), and High Anxiety (1977), director/writer Mel Brooks gives a burlesque spin to a classic Hollywood movie genre; in his own manic, Borscht Belt way, Brooks was a central player in revising classic genres in light of Seventies values and attitudes, an effort most often associated with such directors as Robert Altman and Peter Bogdanovich . Some of this film's sequences, notably a gaseous bean dinner around a campfire, have become comedy classics.

 

Paniolo celebration, May 17-25, 2015
Harkening back to rowdier times, Honoka‘a Westernan Week rides into town May 17-25, 2015. One of the most highly-anticipated festivals of the year, Honoka‘a Western Week (HWW) lets the usually-quiet, former sugar cane plantation town kick up its heels and celebrate a century-old paniolo heritage. The unique cultural blend of rodeo sports, high-energy events, music, food, and education offers visitors and kama‘āina of all ages a whole herd of ways to have fun. 
Event organizers invite the general public to “Cowboy up—slap on spurs and mosey on down to Honoka‘a Town,” starting May 17 with the Paniolo Parade at 3 p.m. along Mamane Street. Then, a week full of paniolo-style events gives cowboys and cowgirls a chance to show off their chili-cooking skills, make their own stick horses, munch popcorn and watch Westerns at Honoka‘a Peoples Theater, and Talk Story at North Hawaii Education and Research Center (NHERC). 
On Friday, May 22, Mamane Street closes down for the always-popular Block Party, featuring country-style music, a sizzling steak fry fundraiser for the HHS Soccer Team, and a fun lineup of contests and events. The Saloon Girl contest and Cowboys Got Talent contests are open to anyone willing to dress up in their best duds and strut their stuff in a talent and personality competition for the audience.
Over the weekend, the 59th Annual Hawai‘i Saddle Club Scholarship Rodeo takes place at the newly-renovated Honoka’a arena. The rodeo starts with “Saturday Slack,” an elimination round, and then cowboys, keiki and wahine are put through their paces Sunday-Monday, competing for buckles, saddles and prize money. Unique-to-Hawai‘i rodeo events, like Po‘o Wai‘u, are in the lineup, along with bull riding, calf roping, bareback and saddle bronc events, sheep riding for the keiki and much more.
Although buttons are not required for admission, attendees receive fair warning that those without buttons at the Block Party risk being thrown into the hoosegow by roving sheriffs.  (All in good fun).

TREVOR HALL LIVE IN CONCERT
Friday May 1  (7pm)
.
Trevor Hall’s music—an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting—echoes with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly refreshing universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully. His latest release, an EP Unpack Your Memories was released on March 27, 2015.

As an eleven year old, Hall started playing harmonica with his father in South Carolina. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally. At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. During his senior year he signed a record deal with Geffen Records, starting his career as a professional musician.[2] While in Los Angeles, he was introduced to yoga and other spiritual practices from India, which had a significant influence on his music and his lifestyle.

Hall quickly broke through the music scene, having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, and joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Nahko & Medicne for The People, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Caillat.

DAVE MASON'S TRAFFIC JAM
Saturday June 13 (7:30pm)
 
DMLazar Bear is proud to announce that Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam will be playing a four Island Tour in Hawaii. Take a journey back to the greatest days of rock with Dave Mason’s sight and sound experience,
 Traffic Jam. Join Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of the legendary band Traffic, Dave Mason for an evening of music history as he retraces the earliest days of his career with Traffic and the works that launched his successful solo career.
Mason founded Traffic with Steve Winwood while both were still teenagers, and created music that would find its way into the hearts of generations of music lovers. He would go on to establish himself as a successful songwriter, guitarist and solo artist.
Mason has penned dozens of hits, and his legendary guitar work has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot.
Renowned for such Traffic hits “Feelin’ Alright” and “Hole In My Shoe” plus his solo signature tracks “We Just Disagree” and “Only You Know and I Know,” MASON is excited to perform the music of Traffic. “I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music,” says MASON. “And ‘Traffic Jam’--aside from the obvious material-will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive!”
The “Traffic Jam” concerts will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967’s Mr. Fantasy and 1968’s Traffic albums, additional Traffic jams, rare photos, stories from Dave plus new material and a selection of classic DAVE MASON music. Check him out: www.davemasonmusic.com

BUFFALO RECORDS PRESENTS: HOT TUNA LIVE IN CONCERT
Saturday June 27 (7pm)
 
HT
Original members of the Jefferson Airplane, one of the seminal bands of the 1960's San Francisco Rock scene, Jorma Kaukonen (guitar, vocals) and Jack Casady (bass) started Hot Tuna in 1969 as a fun side project where they could play the old Gospel and blues music that they loved.  46 years later, they're still going strong!  And watching them play, it's clear that even after more than FIFTY years sharing the stage, there is nothing in this world that Jorma and Jack would rather be doing than playing music together.

Jorma is 73, Jack just turned 70.  Go no further than these guys for living proof that some things absolutely do get better with age!

CAPOERIA AGUA DE BEBER
Saturdays (11am & 12am)
8
Capoeira is an interactive game of martial arts and acrobatic dance accompanied by live music. Created four centuries ago by African slaves in the country of Brazil, it is believed that capoeira practitioners disguised this dynamic art form as dance and play in order to conceal it’s more lethal martial arts and self defense techniques. Students will learn attacks, escapes, acrobatics, strength and conditioning, music instruments, songs in Brazilian-Portuguese, history and self-confidence. Classes are geared for beginners and taught by Mario “Castanho” Hill, an 11-yr. practitioner of capoeira with United Capoeira Association.
Classes: Saturdays - Kids Capoeira (ages 7-12), 11am -12pm; Teen/Adult Capoeira, 12 -1:30pm.
