Hook is my favourite movie for a number of reasons some of which include the fact that this is the only movie that I've ever seen that can inspire an overwhelming and overbearing positivity in me and make me so happy inside that I'm literally driven towards tears, it resonates deeply with me to my very core on an almost spiritual level, and it's simply a bad ass movie if you ask me. Sadly many seemed to disagree, Hook didn't receive that many great reviews for some reason.. But I think the critics were totally wrong on this one..
This unhappy monotony begins to change however when Peter and his family travel to England to visit their Grandmother, Wendy; THE Wendy.
And this is where we're introduced to the amazing Dustin Hoffman who portrays Captain James T. Hook - Another amazing job in acting, Hoffman absolutely dominates this role and his acting is superb. He also completely looks the part.
Now I'm not going to ruin the rest of the movie but the costumes and ambiance of the film is excellently done, the music is amazing and features one bit of music in particular that never fails to inspire absolute optimism in me;
Something about this music is magical to me and screams of adventure and goodness.
Not to mention this movie again had amazing costumes and props
Hook provided me with my current day view on death and mortality;
- Captain Hook: Prepare to die Peter.
- Peter Pan: To die will be a great adventure.
- Captain Hook: Death is the only adventure you have left.
To die would be a great adventure, that's what this movie is about.. The magical, the unknown, and the unseen; adventure. Hook is a great movie that everyone should see at least once and give it fair chance. You won't regret it.
