Robin Williams is considered as one of the greatest actors of all time. A thoughtful and endearing person in real life, Williams’ impact on the film industry is undeniable, and he has become a true legend among both fans and his colleagues.
Over the course of his career, Williams was in a number of films and series. Let’s take a look at some of the more well-known movies that Williams was a part of.
Dead Poets Society
Regarded as among the most inspirational movies of all time, Dead Poets Society has become the standard for quality storytelling, without hiding all the worst parts of society behind a curtain. There are a lot of reasons to love this film, but it’s specifically Williams’ performance that makes it stand out.
Peter Weir is the director, and the plot focuses on a boy prep school that’s set toward the end of the 1950s. The students, which star several well-known actors, are taught to deal with the difficulties of life by Keating. It’s a moving piece with plenty of thoughtfulness as well as genuine moments that are hard to forget.
Good Morning, Vietnam
Another classic Williams’ movie out of the 1980s, Good Morning, Vietnam is centred around a radio show host who works for the US military. Like many of his other movies, this one comes with lots of humour, but there’s an element of humanity that makes it one of the more moving films of its time.
This is especially apparent as we watch the protagonist become worn down by the horrors of the Vietnam War. Many believe that this is the very best performance that Williams ever put on, and he received considerable praise from harsh critics like Roger Ebert.
While Good Morning, Vietnam played an important part in skyrocketing Williams into international fame, it was Aladdin that really sealed him as one of the best comedic actors of his generation. It’s an unforgettable performance and easily the best part of an already good movie.
There have been countless attempts to mimic the magic that he brought to the big screen during Aladdin, but there have been few other characters that quite captured Williams at his very best, and has been across various forms of media, such as television shows, video games, or even Philippines mobile casino games.
Good Will Hunting
Good Will Hunting is another powerful film that really captures everything that made Williams special and broadcasts it to everyone wanting to experience something unique. Here we follow a janitor that works at MIT, who also happens to be a genius at mathematics. Williams’ character endeavours to try and help this young janitor achieve his dreams and showcase the incredible skill that he has.
There are many trials and tribulations that both characters need to deal with, and while Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s performances are incredible, it’s truly Williams that make the story something altogether different in all the best ways. This is a must-see for any Williams fans out there.
