R.I.P Robin Williams

What up Lallster world! I know it’s been a while since my first blog, let’s just say I am still getting used to this whole blogging world. Miss Ramdini and I visited sunny Los Angeles last week and when I say sunny I mean I came back a couple shades darker. But we live in Alberta so I will not complain. The day we arrived was exhausting, exciting, and a little stressful only because our bags took 45 min to come to the carousel (LAX needs to work on that) and after that whole debacle it was great until we settled into our hotel room for the night and heard that the phenomenal Robin Williams had passed away. The next day we went to his star on the walk of fame and it was overwhelming to see the reporters, cameras, and fans there to pay tribute to the great comedian, actor and friend to many. This blog is dedicated to Robin Williams and in my opinion here are my top 5 favorite movies starring this legend of a man.

#5 Dead Poets Society

“Oh captain my captain!” As Ethan Hawke greatly said as he stood on a desk for a teacher who made you believe in the beauty of English class, and the movement of poetry. In this film Robin Willams plays a professor whose uses great passion and conviction to express his love of literature and finding one’s own voice.

#4 Jumanji

Who didn’t want to be stuck in a board game, learning from the wild? Or at least wish their childhood home was a jungle waiting to be explored. (Maybe just me). Could imagine spending your time in the jungle with Robin Williams? I am pretty sure you would laugh through any situation you were in.

#3 Hook

“That’s Peter Pan” and it was! A kid well, man who after his kids had been kidnapped by the infamous Captain Hook found his flight again with the thought of the birth of his son Jack. He brought us the “Boomerang Gang” and “RU-FI-O!”

#2 Mrs. Doubtfire

So let me get this straight a man who is a doting father dresses up as a Scottish nanny to watch and spend time with his kids after his wife files for divorce? Yes, this heartwarming story turns out to be a movie with a lesson not to take your family for granted and that sometimes you have to grow up and be a parent and friend. And maybe even win your spouse back from James Bond himself (Pierce Brosnan) And…

#1 Aladdin

A big blue genie brought such light and fun into the lives of parents and children alike. With his many voices Robin Williams who played genie in 3 movies gave us a friend. He wasn’t just an entity that gave us 3 wishes, he was a voice of reason, hope and love. We all wanted a genie after this movie (Could be because we were greedy and wanted wishes) but we wanted a homie.

Robin Williams I personally thank you and your family, for the 3 wishes, being a great radio host, teacher, doctor, the laughs, the smiles, the tears of joy, a board game, a crazy one and overall friend to all. Everyone has trials and tribulations, but may we always keep the great memories of a life that inspired laughter and humor.
“You have been a fabulous audience! Tell you what, you’re the best audience in the whole world. Take care of yourselves! Good night, Alice! Good night, Agrabah! Adios, amigos!” -Genie from Aladdin.

But please share, what are your memorable Robin Williams moments? Mork and Mindy? Good Morning Vietnam?
