OCMC: Robin Williams, what a concept. . .

I think in order to best encapsulate this week, and the range of emotions that have also been dealt with over the past couple, I will include this excellent montage of photos of Robin throughout his career that has been put together by a personal friend of Steve Oedekerk (the man responsible for one ofContinue reading “OCMC: Robin Williams, what a concept. . .”

OCMC: Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire in Mrs. Doubtfire

We have reached the end of the voyage, dear friends. Our beloved Captain is due back on shore tomorrow, where he shall drop anchor and bid adieu to us after one fine week of sailing the high seas. I guess I better drop the metaphor before it gets even more confusing. Basically, now that the week whereContinue reading “OCMC: Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire in Mrs. Doubtfire”

OCMC: Alan Parrish in Jumanji

“AAAAHHHH!! AHHH!!! . . . . . . AH!” Noises. Robin Williams came equipped with many of them, and in this outrageously fun film from the mid-90s, he’s provided an opportunity to tap into that part of him that was more. . . . shall we say, animalistic?

This is the perfect combination of fitting in with this month’s sort-of-theme (going back to school, woo!) and the ongoing tribute to one of my favorite performers of all time. We now have an opportunity to crack into what many of us probably hold dear to our heartsContinue reading “TBT: Dead Poets Society (1989)”

OCMC: Seymour “Sy” Parrish in One Hour Photo

Here we have one of those roles where Robin Williams simultaneously truly impressed me and deeply concerned me. His ability to detach — as evidenced by this chilling character, a lonely one-hour-photo developer named Seymour “Sy” Parrish — seemed like a mere eject button he could push (“get me outta here”), an escape route so desperately neededContinue reading “OCMC: Seymour “Sy” Parrish in One Hour Photo”

OCMC: Lance Clayton in World’s Greatest Dad

Okay, I believe I’ve got this week mapped out the way I want. We’re going to start with the heavier performances and work our way out of the dark side of things. Like Anakin Skywalker, only trending in the opposite direction. So this little. . .thing that I’m doing. . . .to pay proper tribute to the fullContinue reading “OCMC: Lance Clayton in World’s Greatest Dad”
