    I need to qualify that I haven't watched any of these in a whole lot of years, but based on my feelings while looking over his filmography:
    1. Hamlet (he only had a small role, but it is a movie that Robin Williams was in and it was a beautiful production)
    2. Dead Poets' Society
    3. Dead Again
    4. Good Will Hunting
    5. Aladdin
    6. (in case including Hamlet is deemed "some bullshit" which I would totally understand) Hook

    Was Deconstructing Harry good? I feel like it was, but I also feel like I'm wrong for remembering it that way. That could also be the de-facto Woody Allen stink having developed around it. Not sure.

    Random note: I never saw Flubber, but I hate it based on working at a movie theater when it came out and that theater was TRASHED every f'n time.

    EDIT: I forgot about Awakenings and if my ~17 year old's memory stands I think that should nudge its way in where Aladdin is and push everything else down a spot. Heart strings be tugged.

    Ooh I forgot he was in Dead Again! Okay, that’s my number 3. 
  • As a 90s kid, I'm biased in a certain direction...

    1. Aladdin
    2. Mrs. Doubtfire
    3. One Hour Photo
    4. Jumanji
    5. Hook

    I have some major gaps needing filling: Good Morning, Vietnam, The Birdcage, Good Will Hunting, Smoochie

    I remember loving Death to Smoochie as a dark comedy, but it got eviscerated by critics if memory serves. I am curious how it holds up.

    Moscow On The Hudson. I could say so much on how great this movie is. I think it does show how for all the faults there is something great about the USA. 

    Insomnia. The bad guy? He plays this part great as a guy who made the worst mistake and is trying to survive it. The Swank steals the show in this movie tho.

    Aladdin, I thought the casting was genius when I heard he was going to play it.

    Fisher King, he was just fine in a movie I did not see coming. I was surprised by a Terry Gilliam film? I should have known better.

    Good Morning Vietnam, it’s ok when he’s unleashed on air. Not a fan of the story parts. Very much of its time. I did see it at the Cenarama Dome on Sunset in Hollywood. That was my first time there. 

    I would throw The Birdcage in there but the film snob in me would say the French original was far superior.
    I’m so pretentious.
