Episode 87: Hook (1991)

How could we not leap with Spielberg?! This week we leap again with Steven to one of his many classics – this time to family film Hook starring Robin Williams. We discuss this interesting take on Peter Pan and the great Robin Williams. We hope you enjoy.

Season 4, Episode 6

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Director: Steven Spielberg

From: The Fabelmans

Chosen by:

Director (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Another leap with Steven Spielberg, and this time Glenn doesn’t take us to a film where he plays a featured extra for a few seconds, but an actual film he directed! It is hard to choose a Speilberg film as there are so many greats. Hopefully we will leap with him again soon to get to many more.

 

 

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Julia Roberts

To: Charlie Wilson’s War

Chosen by:

Director (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Another suprise from Scott, choosing Julia Roberts instead of the expected Robin Williams. Julia isn’t too bad a choice though, with over 70 films on her resume, and at least half of them genuine classics. Mike didn’t take long to chose his pick Charlie Wilson’s War – which neither Scott or Glenn had seen…
