My Favourite Scene: Good Will Hunting

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I adore this movie, particularly because of Robin Williams’ performance as a shrink named Sean. He has many lovely quotes, but this speech is my favourite. It’s about living life and having first-hand experiences. I think how Robin Williams encapsulates the depths of sadness that Sean has after losing his wife is tear-jerking… Continue reading

My Favourite Scene: Dead Poets Society

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I adore Dead Poets Society. It is so inspirational, with the tragedy and comedy of life being woven through this film thanks to the talent of Robin Williams as John Keating.

There are so many scenes that have brilliant dialogue and speeches, but these two stand out to me most… Continue reading

Good Morning, Vietnam

This gallery contains 4 photos.

A unique tale about the Vietnam war, seen through the eyes of an extraverted radio presenter, Adrian Cronauer (Robin Williams), who has been hired as a DJ on the Armed Forces radio station in Vietnam.

Cronauer is an outlandishly hilarious DJ who keeps the troops’ spirits up while serving in  Vietnam. While most love him, Lt. Steven Hauk (Bruno Kirby) certainly doesn’t. Hauk’s dry, wooden ‘humour’ (or lack thereof) is hysterical, and he believes he can do a far better job on air. So the rivalry begins… Continue reading

Top 10: Actors Who Stopped Getting Typecast

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Ricky Gervais loves being typecast, he says that actors should do what they do best and not feel the pressure to play different parts.

However, this is clearly not the view of a lot of actors who seem to be trying to shake their ‘character’. Some have not been successful, such as Jack Black and Adam Sandler, who forever play the School of Rock and Happy Gilmore type casts.

Meanwhile other actors have been successful in breaking free from their typecast, and are in all sorts of films now…. Continue reading

I am so upset to hear this news. Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society are my favourites of Williams' work. What a shame! … Continue reading

Dead Poets Society

This gallery contains 5 photos.

Imagine Good Will Hunting + Scent of a Woman… and with a touch of The Ron Clark Story. That pretty much gives you Dead Poet’s Society.

It is a great story about breaking the mould. Not being what your father wants you to be, not giving into the black and white versions of education, but finding the creativity in it and allowing your imagination to run riot.

Robin Williams plays John Keating who is an English teacher with unorthodox teaching methods in a private all boys school. The tradition and formality… Continue reading

Good Will Hunting

This gallery contains 3 photos.

This film is fantastic. You know why? Because it achieves thought provoking material without loosing the audience in to deep and meaningful and philosophical black hole. The film is able to do this by keeping the humour which seems loyal to the culture that the story is based around… Continue reading
