I think we need to discuss & honor a classic for a moment. My randomness can be explained by the information I just came across earlier this week regarding the release of yet ANOTHER 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. Really? More Jack Sparrow? Why? You can hoist your anchors, billow your sails and float right on out of this port Disney. I'm done with you.
That's right. Blast a cannonball in that franchise already. Submerge that sinking ship faster please. Just give me a re-release. You read that correctly. No more sequels, prequels or Orlando Blooms. Time to consider preparing for the 25th year anniversary release of the ONLY movie regarding the high seas. Yup. You guessed correctly. HOOK.
RRRRRRRR ya serious?! I submit tonight that it can get no better. When I watch this cinematic adventure it manages to shiver me timbers every single time. Dustin Hoffman. Julia Roberts (never thought I'd find a tiny fairy arousing). Robin Williams. It's almost as exhilarating as walking a plank, people.
There's even a cameo of worthy note. A cameo before cameos became the fad in every movie made today. Can you guess who? Can you feel it 'in the air tonight'? It's the one and only Phil Collins. SEEN HERE. And Phil's character's name? Inspector Good. HA! Does it get any better? Go blow your friends' minds with that knowledge. They'll be sure to thank you.
RU-FI-OOOO, crocodile clocks & Smee. Can you now admit Hook needs to come flying back? I almost feel like the movie's its own Peter Pan. It's been dormant for so long that it's forgotten how to fly. Let's rip it off the shelves and teach it to fly once again!
Now before we do, go ahead and enjoy some of my favorite clips in no particular order. Just be warned that you may mumble (or shout) these aloud for the rest of the day. GOODNIGHT NEVERLAND!!!!
