He battled drug and alcohol addiction for decades.  Very sad.  Has to be the highest profile celebrity to commit suicide in a long time.  I actually just watched Jumanji a couple weeks ago.

what a bummer! Isn't it strange how many of the people who are best at making us laugh are miserable themselves?

I actually thought "What dreams may come" was a pretty decent if not dreadfully depressing movie.  It is widely regarded as the movie that ruined Cuba Gooding Jr's career but I thought Robin Williams was really good in a serious emotional role.  Great actor.

Re: Robin williams RIP 


When a celebrity or person dies, it's customary to only say nice things. That's why you never hear a bad eulogy for a jerk.

None of his movies were any good. Not even accidentally.

OK Proud...that's just lame. Even if the man was still alive...he obviously made some excellent films.
Your entire "I hate every film" act is beyond old.

Do us a favor and don't go to the movies.

Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Night at the Museum, Aladdin, and Hook.  I agree that his serious movies didn't have a whole lot of replay value but his kid movies (Night at Museum, Aladdin, Hook) are very fun movies.

Do me favor and tell me which movie was good (I obviously haven't seen them all) and it you find yourself typing out Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Cadillac Man or a gem like Flubber or one the animated ones like Happy Feet, don't bother.

Good Will Hunting (Matt Damon schlock) , Dead Poets Society (not memorable, I think I saw it) , Night at the Museum (Ben Stiller movie, didn't see it), Aladdin (didn't see it) and Hook (day I realized how bad an actor Dustin Hoffman was. I think Papillion with Steve McQueen was his only good role ever).

Proud...we all understand by now your hatred for anything even remotely "mainstream". As a moderator, you should have a little bit more class than this. This thread is not the time or place to share your opinions of the man and his work. Jeebus.

I really enjoyed Good Will Hunting (so did just about every critic or person who saw it, so you're definitely in the minority on that one). Insomnia, Awakenings, and One Hour Photo were all pretty good. I also had a soft spot for Good Morning, Vietnam. Didn't care for Dead Poets Society.

He passed away today - that is tragic. Seemed like a great guy when interviewed on talk shows, etc. I was just saying we don't have to pretend how great his movies were, I didn't start it this portion of discussion. And unclear how all his movies were 'mainstream'. I was just providing an opinion, I guess I was unclear my opinion didn't matter.

Good Morning Vietnam is always a favorite of mine. Mrs. Doubtfire too. I liked his standup. He had a guest appearance on Who's Line Is It Anyway that was pretty hilarious. He will be missed.
