Teaser Trailer Tuesday: Hook (1991)

As you read yesterday (if you did) I'm a big Robin Williams fan. The man was a classically trained actor and could own every scene he was in if he wanted to. Everyone has a particular Robin Williams film that they are a fan of but many members of my generation will think of either 'Aladdin' (1992), 'Mrs. Doubtfire' (1993), or today's Teaser Trailer Tuesday selection 'Hook' (1991).

Whatever your feelings on 'Hook' are you have to admit the film has a sense of fun and this teaser strives to create a feeling of classic adventure films. I don't think films like this are done anymore, films like of 'The Rocketeer' or 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.  I'm not saying this film meets those lofty standards but that's its intent. Films don't seem as fun anymore...well, besides Guardians.

So, bangarang Robin Williams a.k.a. Peter Pan. Bangarang.
P.S. Black Girl Nerds will be live-tweeting 'Hook' on Tuesday, August 12th at 9PM EST/ 6PM PST. Be sure to be ready to sync the film on Netflix and include the hashtag #Hook or #RememberRobin.
