Seriously though, enough with the shark movies!

Enough!

No more shark movies! I’ve had enough of shark movies! I don’t want more shark movies!

Sharks aren’t even all that vicious and blood thirsty as these movies depict them! Poor things haven’t done anything wrong, what’s the matter with you all!? Oh my Luna!

Also, that Eric Roberts guy is the only good thing of this train crash of a movie.

And now, if you excuse me, I need to get out of this thing Bucket has wrapped me into! Please send help!!!

Seriously though, this movie very much sums up what Robin Williams was for many people.

He might’ve looked old, but deep inside of him there was that one little kid full of wonder and happiness that never wanted to grow up, who spread cheer and madness all over. And we can see all of that in this movie which, by the way, has left me feeling really good. This is one of those movies that shouldn’t work because its premise is so outlandish, and yet it does with flying colors. It’s so bizarre, silly and colorful that it can sneak in some genuine pathos and touching moments. It shows that, even when we grow older and leave our childhood behind, there are still happy thoughts that keep us going, that letting our imaginations fly isn’t something that’s supposed to end when you become a grown up.

That’s this movie, from beginning to end.

I think I’m now ready to move on. I wasn’t before, but I think this is a good note to end this small overview on the career of one of the most extraordinary people who ever lived. I will happily review more of his movies in the future, but for now, it’s time to get to other films.

And now, if you excuse me, I have to get ready. October is getting really close.

*: (Translation) This might be one of the most factually wrong, insulting, and misrepresentative movies I have ever seen in my life. It takes the work of Hunter “Patch” Addams and makes a mockery out of it, just for the sake of plucking at your heartstrings.

Seriously though, this movie is particularly infuriating.

I mean, I get it. I know what they were going for with this one. It’s supposed to be a feel good movie about a guy who challenges the established system in American Health Care, by trying a new approach to medicine. It’s kooky and rather eccentric, but it also tries to have a lot of heart and relateable characters and situations.

And what can I say about Robin Williams? He gave here one of the most memorable performances of his career. Say what you want about it, but this movie’s emotional center was in how he delivered every line and every expression.

Now, don’t get me wrong, all these elements can make for an excellent movie, but it all gets ruined because of how it misrepresents the real Patch Addams and his work. It’s so bad that even he himself felt insulted by it. When a movie misses the point and ends up insulting the person it’s supposed to be honoring, then you know you have done something wrong. This is what happens when you have an incompetent director and a crummy script filled with rancid emotional fudge, mixed messages, fabricated facts, and really questionable ethics (stealing supplies from a hospital!? Are you for real!?).

The only silver lining to come out of this movie was that thanks to it people are learning more about the real Patch Addams and how amazing his work is.

And now, if you excuse me, I need to go decipher this Medical Talk. I swear, I seriously don’t know how doctors understand even their own hoofwriting.

Twilight: It’s not like we haven’t seen you sing before!

Seriously though, this movie is just perfect.

This is the type of movie that I’ve been needing for a good while. Some movies usually focus on just one thing, like just music, or just drama, or just fantasy, or just comedy, but this movie has all of these and more! It’s a perfect combination of every single classic movie genre with gorgeous animation, memorable music, hilarious writing, unforgettable characters, and a sense of fun that’s contagious.

Also, needless to say, Robin Williams knocked it out of the park with his performance as The Genie. Did you know he won a Golden Globe for his acting? If you have the chance, check the “Behind the Scenes" of this movie, there are a lot more hidden gems seeing him behind the microphone giving all he’s got.

And now, if you excuse me, I need to give my wishlist to my two dear guests. I hope they give me, at least, one of these wishes. They better don’t backfire at me in any horrible way.

The world of movies (and comedy) will never be the same again.

This ingeniously creative man has left a legacy of great movies, great performances, and great characters, and in my humble opinion the best one of all is Mr. John Keating from “Dead Poets Society”.

This movie shows how a teacher’s passion for his job, which is to look after and nurture future generations of students to be the best they can be, can drive him to the highest peaks and the lowest of pitches, yet the ups and downs of life don’t make him enjoy the ride any less. Through the best and the worst, it’s the inspiration we give in others and the one that we get back what makes us keep going forward.

Very much like how Robin Williams inspired an entire generation of actors, artists, comedians, and people in general, always with that perennial smile on his face, and a joke in his pocket.

Thank you, you will always be remembered.
