Top 10 Movies with Robin Williams
On August 11th the world said goodbye to one of the most talented and funniest actors ever. Mister Robin Williams would forever be remembered as the genius who made Mrs. Doubtfire the favorite nanny around the world, or the boy who had to face some serious challenges in Jumanji. He was Peter Pan and Popeye, the “Captain” in Dead Poets Society and Genie in Aladdin. Favorite among everyone, he managed to make the world laugh and cry with him. And while everybody was shocked from the terrible news, we should celebrate his life and his magnificent performances. The following list contains some of his best movies.
#1. Mrs. Doubtfire (1991)
Who hasn’t seen this movie? We all fall in love with the hilarious Mr. Doubtfire/Daniel Hillard. In the role that inspired Tobias Fünke’s Mrs. Featherbottom, Williams plays man who plays a British nanny (with an inexplicably Scottish accent) in order to spend time with his kids. The amazing transformation and the goofy ways of Daniel Hillard to come closer to his children even as a woman, made this comedy timeless and loved by many.
#2. Awakenings (1990)
He wouldd put his doctor’s coat (and goofy persona) back on eight years later for the film Patch Adams, but the audience still prefers his portrayal of Dr. Malcolm Sayer, whose concern for a group of catatonic patients leads him to revive one in a medical trial. Together with his co-star Robert De Niro, Williams made this movie unforgettable.
