AMC is showing Hook which, of course, features pirates.

Too bad it wasn't a better movie. It's way too long and slow and a lot of it assumes that the viewer is really familiar with the novelized version of Peter Pan. It is an example of Spielberg's worst traits. You could cut an hour out out it and have a better movie.

The first time I saw it I realized that, in a lost boys vs pirates world, which side I'd be with.

Nice ship set and Bob Hoskins is really good as Smee.
