Folks focus on the good things after a year without Robin Williams.
“Funny, charismatic, and a visual, that sure put a lot of smiles on people’s faces,” is how one Fanshawe student describes the comedian.
A mother says her favourite movie is Mrs. Doubtfire, “because it picks me up when I’m down or just makes me laugh. It’s a really good laughing movie. A good movie for everybody to see, kids, family. That’s why I like it the best.”
Williams was a part of the entertainment scene for 37 years. Even after his death, he still puts people in better moods with his movies.
He is well known for his improv ability. In the 1992 animated film, Aladdin, the actor improved most of the lines for his Genie character.
Another ability of Williams, was to take his audience on an emotional journey with all of his works.
A mature student at Fanshawe says his favourite movie is Good Morning, Vietnam because, “he touched on a situation in Vietnam, that was kind of bungled by the American Government. And the humor he brought to that movie, but also the human side of it.’
Williams was talented in many aspects of the entertainment industry. He was also respected and friends with many in Hollywood.
Even after death, Williams is able to bring something new. Adding his voice to the new film Absolutely Anything, featuring Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, set to release September 4th.
