  • Title: Science Fair

Science Fair movie reviewDirectors Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster‘s documentary Science Fair takes a cross-section of students from across the world earning entries into Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Including interviews from past winners to provide context for the prestigious event, the focus on the documentary are the students who competed for the top prize in 2017. Featuring interviews and documentary footage of winning individual science fairs to earn entry into ISEF, Science Fair is a compelling look at the top scientific high school minds taking their first step into a larger world.

While not all the subjects of the documentary will win, Costantini and Foster take care to showcase the intense dedication each has to their project (astounding work with real-world applications to help make the world a better place). The subjects range from teams from the most prestigious magnet school in the United States and the science teacher pushing her students to succeed, to entries from Brazil and Germany, and a shy young woman in South Dakota whose school is more concerned with their losing football team than her qualification for ISEF.

Hawaii Five-0 - A 'ohe mea 'imi a ka maka television revieHawaii Five-0 - A 'ohe mea 'imi a ka maka television review

This year’s Hawaii Five-0 Halloween episode offers a pair of unusual mysteries. The first involves a murder Jerry (Jorge Garcia) believes was committed as a child. Reunited with a group of his childhood friends, Eric (Andrew Lawrence), and Noelani (Kimee Balmilero) the group looks for a body buried decades ago by an axe-wielding killer only Jerry believes exists. While the premise itself isn’t bad, it does feel a bit late in the game to introduce a murder that has been haunted Jerry for his entire life this late in the show’s run.

The Good Place - The Ballad of Donkey Doug television review

After learning the truth (again) and concluding that they will use their remaining time on Earth to help others avoid the Bad Place, Jason (Manny Jacinto) leads the group to the magical location of Jacksonville where he hopes to save Donkey Doug’s (Mitch Narito) soul. Jason has offered many tales of Donkey Doug during his time with the group, but the one fact he left out is that Donkey Doug is is father. What’s interesting here as the show delves in to the hilariously depressing relationship between Jason, Donkey Doug, and Pillboi (Eugene Cordero) is that the episode conclusion with an idea that, despite what these four people accomplished together, flies in the face of the show’s core idea that everybody can be saved.
