“Good morning Vietnam!” A Robin Williams Memorian

From the wackiness of Mork, through Popeye and a Russian defective in Moscow on the Hudson, King of the moon and a grown Peter Pan. An English teacher in Dead Poets.. to “English teacher” and Radio DJ in Good morning Vietnam, an insane genie and a kid lost in a board game. An absent-minded professor to a goodhearted psychiatrist, an emotional android to Teddy Rosevelt just to name a few, Williams’ career has brought us laughter upon laughter and heartfelt performances that’s shaken us through our very core. Robin Williams memorian 1 An actor. A comedian. An entertainer like no other, Robin Williams was without a doubt one of a kind. He was the kind of celebrity you felt you knew, even though you didn’t, and I would lie if I say I didn’t shed a few tears when I heard of his passing. I grew up watching his antics on screen and on stage, and I have learned a lot from his words during my years. He was a friend and a parent, and no matter a good or bad mood, emotional struggle and everything in between, I could always turn to him to make me feel good again.  Robin Williams memorian 2 People say that he was a great comedian, I say he was a great entertainer. Just as he brought us laughter, his stints in drama was just as strong at heart. But in addition to being a fantastic actor and comedian, he was just an amazing person outside the entertainment business, being involved with charity work at organizations as the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital among others. In short, he was a magnificent man and he will not easily be forgotten! I am not writing this about his loss, I’m writing this about his memory.”Number one!” I bow down to you, Robin Williams, in reverence of what you accomplished. Through your legacy you shall forever be remembered as one of the Great Ones!

“Number one!”

About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
