THUMBS UP FOR 'UNDERWORLD EVOLUTION':
Malia Casson and Alexis Badillo were among the capacity crowd that enjoyed a preview screening of "Underworld Evolution" Thursday at Dole Cannery. Badillo, who'd seen the first film in the "Underworld" series, said the sequel is "a lot better than the first one. The action was good, (although) the story line was kinda weak." Casson said she went to the screening "because he was going." Kate Beckinsale reprises her role of super-vampire Selene in the fantasy gore-fest.
Falsetto singer 'Anelaikalani, left, went into the audience to greet Nalani Olds before taking the stage Thursday during a free Hawaiian concert at the Sheraton Moana-Surfrider. Olds is a guest vocalist on 'Anelaikalani's new album, "Completely."
