Thread: (Mary Martin's) Peter Pan
Related to this somewhat, does anyone recall the old TV show "Pixanne"? When I lived in New Jersey as a kid, it used to be on very early in the morning. I used to get up and faithfully watch it every day I could. I never saw any wires and believed she could really fly! But I was only 5 or 6 then.
I remember watching 'Hook' when it was a new release back in '91. I was just a child then but it was on TV a few nights back and it brought back memories, and i still found it quite entertaining, which says a lot right there, because i find that usually older movies i loved as a kiddie can't even come close to holding my interest anymore.
I should have read Elessar's quote a few posts above mine 1st i guess...because i totally agree with it!
hmmm to be quite honest, my favourite Peter Pan movie is Hook, with Robin Williams, i tihnk its great
I also liked Hook but I also liked : FINDING NEVER-LAND a good story too about Peter Pan ,though the story is different and new
I've never seen Finding Never-Land, is that the one starring Johnny Depp? Would u mind explaining the plot of that story to me? i thought it was about the life of the author, whom created the whole Peter Pan fantasy, living with a sick woman and her children, am i wrong?
I have passed on that movie when I have seen it offered on cable; have I made a mistake? Do you recommend I watch it? I usually doen't like old tales dressed up in modern clothing.
But isn't that basically what "Hook" is too? I can agree with you there and think most modern made movies based on classic fairy tales, don't always hit their mark, but some of them can acheive higher than their expectations.
I thought it was about the author whom created the whole Peter Pan fantasy...
I'm sorry T’rin Turambar..yes that is what the film is all about ,but I think it has a resemblance to Hook because of the imagination and believing in a fantasy person :Peter Pan that is..and to you Grondy I do recommend it !
