Hook (1991) Don’t even start. Steven Spielberg’s Peter Pan sequel, in which Williams plays a Pan who has grown up and become a neglectful yuppie named Peter Banning, has gotten a lot of grief over the years. But not on this list, and not right now. It was positioned as a kiddie adventure, but what we got was something else: an intensely personal psychological session about responsibility and fatherhood. The film even mimics the structure of a Freudian therapy session, ultimately uncovering layers of memories to reach Peter’s earliest memory, when he willed himself to escape as a baby from a mother who was making plans for his future.

Tig Notaro has landed a new gig that involves filming a movie role that had previously been completed by another comedian. According to Variety, Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie heist film starring Dave Bautista, Army of the Dead, had cast and filmed a part by comedian Chris D’Elia, but presumably due to the sexual-misconduct allegations that surfaced against D’Elia in June, the role has now been recast, and Notaro will step in to take over. The Variety report notes that Army of the Dead had already completed shooting and entered post-production prior to the pandemic, so in order to swap out D’Elia with his new replacement, Notaro’s performance will be added thanks to the magic of green screen and other special effects. … [Read more...] about Tig Notaro to Replace Chris D’Elia in Zack Snyder Zombie Movie
