I like Hook - me and two equally old mates went to see it at the pictures and there were all these annoying kids (well what did we expect). At the end of the movie all the kids jumped up and pissed off, leaving 3 old(ish) men moist-eyed at the feeling of loss of innocence that by-passed the kids.
I like pirates as an historical thing and have a substantial collection of books on the subject, but I havn't seen many films on the subject - altho' I have seen the Polanski one - it was ok. There's a Monty Python offshoot one called Yellowbeard, if I remember rightly. This may be worth a watch - with a highly humourous crew it could prove a goodie. Somehow, I approve of comedy-pirates and not of my SWs! I reckon I may try and track this one down.
Btw - What's got three eyes, three legs and three arms?
