The Actors Who Played The Lost Boys In ‘Hook’ Pay Tribute To Robin Williams

A little over two years ago, the comedic force of nature that was Robin Williams passed away.

He was a man who brought endless amounts of joy and entertainment to the world, but in the end, the fight against his own personal demons became too much to bear. That was when this planet lost a truly brilliant soul.

Twenty-five years after Williams flew onto the silver screen as Peter Pan in “Hook,” the Lost Boys from the 1991 Steven Spielberg classic reunited for a trip down memory lane and paid tribute to the late actor.

Growing up, “Hook” was one of my favorite movies, so it’s incredibly reassuring to know that the feeling of warmth and love that came through the screen as I watched it wasn’t an act. Robin Williams was simply that wonderful. He may be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.

You Might Recognize These Movies, But Once The Music Starts, They’ll Never Be The Same

Classic dance numbers in movies are unforgettable. Who can forget seeing Gene Kelly spinning around that light post in Singin’ In The Rain? It’s a scene that will live on in cinema history forever.

Well, one creative mind decided to mash up these classic dance moves with contemporary music. In the process, this creator breathed new life into the performances we all know and love.

Even though “Uptown Funk” was only released earlier this year, it has a timeless feel that goes perfectly with these awesome routines. People should do things like this more often! It’s always good to nod to the performers who still inspire dancers and musicians to this day.

You’ll LOL When You See The Differences Between Real Life and TV/Movies.

The entire world may be a stage, but that doesn’t mean anyone is recording. Despite your dramatic friend’s best efforts, your life is not a movie or television show. That isn’t to say that it will never be, but the odds of you becoming the next Raymond that everybody loves are not in your favor. (After all, where are you going to find a good studio audience to laugh at all of your jokes?) Not only that, but your life is nothing like the lives of people in film.

There are so many tiny everyday situations and items that Hollywood thinks is reality, but this definitely doesn’t happen in real life:

While some of us may still dream of being in a television show or movie, there’s no denying that not living in a fictitious world is probably for the best. If your life was actually a film, you’d have to sit through the credits.

This Is The Greatest Medley Of Batman Music That You’ll Ever Hear. Ever.

Holy hemiola, Batman!

This is what happens when you take a pianist, a cellist, and 50 years of Batman music and film and put them together. And when you throw in every single Batmobile? It gets even better.

The Piano Guys have always loved super heroes movies, both for their dramatic scores and the vivid stories. What’s why they made possibly the world’s greatest homage to Batman.

You’re going to love this.

Those first few notes will never stop being associated with Batman.

The Real-Life Inspiration Behind James Bond Led A Fascinating Life Full Of Crime

Have you heard of the real-life inspiration behind the character James Bond?

Bond creator Ian Flemming gave the spy new life in 1953 after reading about a man named Sidney Reilly’s exploits. Reilly was a British spy in the early 1900s who was loyal to no one but himself. Sound familiar? Throughout his career, the “Ace of Spies” committed very real crimes, some of which are echoed the James Bond books and movies we all know and love.

1. Murdering a man on a train.

In 1895, train operators in Paris found a man dying inside a train car. He had been stabbed many times but regained consciousness long enough to say he had been robbed by two men. It later came out that he was a member of an illegal anarchist group. Reilly and an accomplice stole money from the anarchist and Reilly fled to the United Kingdom.
