I spent my Valentine's Day writing a brief about suppressing evidence in a murder trial. I hope yours was slightly more romantic...
I've got two job interviews tomorrow, but don't get too excited. One of them is with the Army. And secretly, I want to just go to summer school and live off government money instead of getting a job. That is, of course, unless I get offered a job paying $1000/week.
And I just have to say that this Top 100 Film list thing is way fun for me. The films thus far have been unconventional, I know, but they get better eventually. I'm also thinking about posting a list of honorable mentions (not descriptions or anything - just a list) of movies that didn't make it but are either known to be good or that I like a lot anyways. We'll see. Here's the next film:
100. The Three Muskateers
99. Independence Day
98. Kindergarten Cop
97. Hook (1991)
What It Is:
Robin Williams plays a grown up Peter Pan who gets his children kidnapped by a grown up Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman - I LOVE YOU!). Julia Roberts plays scorned lover Tinker Bell who help Peter Panning refind his inner child in order to save his actual children.
Why I Like It:
What can I say? I'm a sucker for fairy tale adaptations and retellings (thus my love for Angela Carter and all things Disney), especially ones where the bad guys don't seem all that bad. I find Hoffman's Hook, dareIsay, lovable!
I Bet You Didn't Know:
When the family is in the airplane flying to England, you here the pilot say, "This is your Captain speaking" and it's the voice of Hoffman (playing Capt. Hook!).
- All scenes with Ruffio
- Pirate Baseball
- "What would the world be like without Captain Hook?"
