lol.... your description of the movie doesn't even begin to describe how depressing most of the themes within the movie are, including the ironic fact that it deals with the subject of suicide.

Also I disagree with you that it's a pretty crappy film.

Ya, it's sappy but I honestly really enjoyed it for what it was. I may not necessarily agree with its portrayals of heaven and hell, but regardless it had a great story and was really touching.

I highly recommend World's Greatest Dad though, as it was probably his last great lead role (with the potential of upcoming films excluded). It's a hilarious movie, although it also deals with themes of depression and suicide.

RIP Robby. From what I saw of his stuff he was a great actor/comedian, and tickled me in funny places. He shall be missed. frown

I cried while talking with my mom about it on the phone a while ago and I didn't realize how sad it made me. But you know, Robin Williams was part of my childhood. The more dramatic roles he did that a few of you have mentioned are important but it's the comedies and kid movies that I remember and that really was important to me. I'm so sad.

Wow. This is surprising and sad. I didn't know about his addictions or depression; I hope he is finally at peace now.

Sad to me to think that the last time I've really watched anything of him in is Nostalgia Critic reviews of his poorer films, but as I sit here the more I think the more I remember all the fantastic stuff he has done, the movies (and shows) I've really enjoyed him in and the unique presence he has on screen. It's terrible to think he's no longer with us, and to think that his life ended so tragically, but I'll always remember him for his humour and the happiness he exhibited and created.

Rest in peace, Robin; I bid thee a very fond nanu nanu.

The Concourse/Deadspin: Conan O'Brien Found Out About Robin Williams' Death During His Show

With video of this on last night's show (Conan, Andy Richter, and Will Arnet all say a few words in remembrance) and video of Williams' 2005 appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

I still haven't seen that. There's so many of his films that I wanted to see but just never got to it that I'll watch in the coming weeks. Last night we watched The Angriest Man in Brooklyn because Coldy's friend told us to, I didn't know it existed until a few days ago when we walked past a blockbuster and I saw it advertised out front and I thought "how come I didn't hear about this Robin Williams movie?" and in the movie his character said his gravestone would say "*his name* 1951-2014" and it was like, it really will say that, but with your name and not your character's. Had to wonder if he associated with the role in that way that's why he took it.

Jezzem and I only just had a whole thing of watching 90s kids movies this last couple of months. I repurchased Jumanji for it. We watched Hook. Mrs Doubtfire. Aladdin. I watched Jack, something I'd almost forgotten about but I did see at the cinema and had recorded off TV back in VCR times, and I was so impressed at how well he had you believe he was a 10 year old boy going through all this stuff. Aw.

So sad. He was multi-generational. When I was a kid he was like my substitute dad for when my real dad was at work and I didn't even realise it until now. It must be so strange for his actual kids.

I feel bad because I thought Lauren Bacall was already dead. But I have seen some of her work and she was a true beauty in her time. Golden Age Hollywood is amazing.

So many important people gone this past week  frown

I love Robin. He was a complete genius in everything he was in. He was a huge inspiration for me and he will never be forgotten. RIP.

Couldn't agree more. She was best friends with Vivien Leigh, who is one of my favorite actresses. R.I.P.


SNL is my absolute favorite and it'll be hard not hearing his voice anymore. It's so recognizable. R.I.P.

Yes, one of the most recognizable voices, ever.  I haven't watched SNL since the good old days (
John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase) and had no idea that he'd continued with the show for all these years.

Though perhaps his fame was a tad less glamorous than Don Pardo, on the subject of recognisable voices I'd like to shout out to James Alexander Gordon, who many, if not most Brits in fact will remember as the voice announcing the classified football results on BBC radio and television every weekend (in season) for 40 years. He retired last year due to the onset of cancer and he too, sadly passed away on the 18th, aged 78. RIP to both!

Got confused with David. Was initially more bummed, then relieved, then bummed at myself that I was relieved someone was dead.

Don't feel too bad Mr S, I also got confused since their brother John died two years ago.

This is still sad, though..  Does anyone know if he was part of the upcomming Jurassic World?

More of a personal shoutout, given motorsport is a niche interest on this board, but while millions of Formula One fans (such as myself) hope/pray for the survival, let alone recovery of racing driver Jules Bianchi after his horrific crash yesterday at the Japanese Grand Prix, former F1 driver Andrea De Cesaris, one of the most memorable of racing personalities of the 1980s and early 90s, has died in a bike accident in Rome, aged 55, and I am very, very upset. cry

Forza Jules!

RIP Andreas frown
