    Here’s something funny about Hook: Two people behind the scenes were involved with both Simpson and Princess Di (not together though). Craig Baumgarten was co-producer and he was a friend of Simpson and played golf with him the day Simpson killed two people. Dodi Fayed was the other (I don’t remember what he was credited as) but he was Di’s boyfriend at the end of her life.

    Actually, Roger liked Star Trek and Star Trek 3. He gave them three stars each. Out of the even numbers so far, 4 was the best to him.

    I don’t know why Roger generalized the odd-numbered Star Treks like that. Yes, they were less successful than the even-numbered ones, but that doesn’t make them bad. For me, I was a boring poor man’s version of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I thought III was good and rather underrated, and of course gave us the canon side story of the murder of Kirk’s son. And V was just bad. II is still my favorite.

    I’m as big a Spielberg fan as they come. But damned if I just HATED Hook. Its by far his worst film, worse than 1941 and Tintin. I really thought his career was forever tainted and in trouble here. Especially after Always and Empire. Then…Jurassic came and all that was gone for good.
