Hook wasn't a disney live action remake of Peter Pan. It was a sequel that was live action.I liked Hook.
I do. My brother and I spent many a time watching TOYS on Cinemax and HBO back in the day.Hell, TOYS was a mess(interesting but a mess) and Robin Williams was fun to watch in that regardless. I can't be the only one who remembers TOYS.
I mean, it had Robin Williams in the starring role so it couldn't have been that terrible. Hell, TOYS was a mess(interesting but a mess) and Robin Williams was fun to watch in that regardless. I can't be the only one who remembers TOYS.
Ah, men of taste. Such a fun movie.I do, My brother and I spent many a time watching TOYS on Cinemax and HBO back in the day.
People are always going to interpret things certain ways (or in ways that was never meant to), regardless if it was the intentional or not. That is nothing new, it's just that now everyone has a wide variety of media outlets to share their views. You can still have nuance and plenty of it. Just ignore the wannabes, know-it-alls, and idiots with nothing better going on in their lives.We can't have common sense and reason anymore. Everything has got to be left, right, or center. We can't have nuance.
And so wierdly prescient. The whole using "Toy Planes as deadly weapons that controls like a video game" thing feels a lot less wierd in the 2000s. It went from "That sounds like a dumb plan" to "Holy shit, TOYS was about Drone Warfare". Which wouldn't have been a big deal in a Tom Clancy movie, but this was a Robin Williams Comedy that may or may not have been aimed at children(Honestly not sure who it was aimed at, really).Ah, men of taste. Such a fun movie.
Aristophanes' The Frogs tells the story of the god Dionysus, who is fed up with tragic playwrights all being rubbish nowdays, going to the underworld to find the best dead one and bring them back. Towards the end, there's an arguement over who the best playwright actually is, and whether its best to porttray things as they are, or things as they should be (that is, whether plays should be written by moral guardians or by people .out to destroy society or whatever).I genuinely don't believe there is such a thing, being able to get away with shocking or offensive material is all about how it's presented and delivered, and it always has been. Likewise there have always been moral guardians telling the public about how such media is eroding the moral backbone of society.
Awkward.I was talking to my dad on the phone today, and he was tell me he watched a documentary about Bob Marley.
"You know who would be a great actor for a Bob Marley bio-pic? That Pineapple Express guy...what's his name? James Franco, but in black face. It would be perfect."
