This fantasy adventure featuring a grown-up Peter Pan (Robin Williams) returning to Neverland to confront his old enemy, Capt. Hook (Dustin Hoffman), was one of Spielberg's rare critical flops (although it still managed to earn $300 million worldwide). With Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as Smee and Maggie Smith as a mature Wendy Darling, this is one Spielberg film that deserves another look.

Why 3D? The elaborate set pieces in Neverland scream for 3D technology. We need to experience the characters flying off the screen and we want to see Hook's pirate ship come to life. Spielberg said that certain scenes in Hook would be much improved if he had access to a digital environment that didn't exist when the film was made.
