This Thursday we’ll be hosting another Deadshirt Date Night, and this time we’ll be watching Steven Spielberg’s Hook.

Between 1989’s crowd-pleasing Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and 1993’s immortal Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg directed two films. The first was Always, a small period romance that nobody’s heard of. The other was Hook, which might be Spielberg’s weirdest, most divisive blockbuster. The premise: lawyer Peter (Robin Williams) is actually a grown-up Peter Pan who’s forgotten his past, until Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman) kidnaps his kids. Julia Roberts plays Tinkerbell, and the late Bob Hoskins portrays cartoonish first mate Smee. Yeah, okay, it’s all cartoonish.

So, join us Thursday, July 17th, at 8:00 PM ET, and find out if your love of Hook (available on Netflix instant) is even a little justified, and chat with us about it on Twitter.

How it works:

  • First, follow @DeadshirtDotNet on Twitter!
  • Then, at exactly 8:00pm ET on Thursday, July 17th, press play on your copy of Hook.
  • For the next two hours, join members of the Deadshirt staff – including Dominic Griffin (@captain_fuck) Max Robinson (@DieRobinsonDie), Haley Winters (@winterzzzzzzz) and more – in commenting on the film, cracking jokes, trading stories and trivia, and just generally having a good time.
  • Use the hashtag #DeadshirtDN (that’s short for Date Night) and we’ll retweet our favorite comments on the @DeadshirtDotNet account for all to see!
  • Make new friends, have some laughs.

Come follow us, drop us a line and let us know you’re coming!
