Hook ★★★★½

Quickie Review 
Funny how this review arrives on the 25th anniversary of its release and the 2nd anniversary of Robin Williams' passing (a passing that still hurts since my childhood consisted of watching "Popeye", "Ferngully", "Aladdin", "Mrs. Doubtfire", "Aladdin and the King of Thieves", "Flubber" and several others). The timing's right. Honestly, I don't see why some people don't like this movie. You have 5 great actors (Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins, Dame Maggie Smith), you have one of the greatest directors of all time at the helm (Steven Spielberg), it's a creative continuation of "Peter Pan", what's not to like? Sure, it has a couple of problems but nothing to write about. Even to this day, ILM's effects work on this film doesn't feel dated. "Hook" is a film that I will never get tired of and a movie that I will Defend Until The End. Bangarang!
