Hook Hook, show us the Hook!
Verbal Diorama is a podcast known for its very good form, and was given three days to learn to fly, fight and crow and become The Pan. I like to think I'm more of a Rufio (Rufio, Ru-Fi-Ohhhhhhh!) actually.
Hook is one of my childhood favourites. It's my favourite Peter Pan movie by far, and honestly it pains me that most people don't like it, let alone love it. Yes, it has problems; the fact Peter doesn't become Peter Pan for over an hour and a half is one I'll acknowledge off the bat, but it also has really high highs. Literal flying being one! Robin Williams being another and the importance of finding your happy thoughts as adults.
The message might be saccharin sweet, but it's an important one. Don't forget the innocence of childhood, keep your imagination flowing and, mostly importantly, play with your children. Keep your children young for as long as possible. Don't make them grow up too fast.
Quite simply, I think Hook is Bangarang, despite what Steven Spielberg himself says.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Hook!
