    I always thought Jumanji was SO creative and different! The computer animation may not have held up, but I feel like the story did. Great video. I found you later on and beingnof a similar age I love your videos and reviews! Can you do one on Jimmy Neuteon or Reboot from Toonami?

    Well, I know I'm a bit late with this so I doubt you'll see it but here's to trying. Subscribed maybe a year ago now, I don't know. But, I've been in a Robin Williams mood today for whatever reason and this video popped up after watching one or two tribute videos. But I remember sitting on my front porch when my mom sent me a text about his passing and I couldn't even reply. I just wept. I'm 33 years old so I too grew up with and was greatly influenced by many of Robin's movies. I couldn't believe that we had lost him. That someone, like you said, who I've never met before but I loved dearly. It broke my heart and honestly, I've yet to heal. I have days like today where I wish I could tell him how much he is missed, even after all these years. Will be watching his Live on Broadway standup tonight for sure. Still just as hilarious as the first time I watched it. Anyways, thank you for posting this. Take care, Chris.

    What a moving tribute, Chris. I never watched this video until today. 4 months ago I lost someone close to me which made me really sad and depressed and something that left me with deep regret. My grandmother passed away at the age of 89. I hadn't seen her in 15 years as she lived in England and I reside in New Zealand. Robin Williams and my grandmother are now in a better place. Amen!

    If it is a Robin Williams movie, I love it. I am a huge fan. He is my hero and always will be. I miss him. Best performance I think is either Dead Poets Society or Good Will Hunting. I did an entire presentation on it. I love him.

    I know it's been years since the tragic event, but that's for how long I've been postponing watching this video. I know it's not relevant anymore but I feel the need to speak about this so I can finally let go.
    I'm not a native English speaker, so as a kid watching a subtitled movie was never exciting. However, the first movie i ever watched that was not animated was Hook. Peter Pan had always been my favourite hero, and as a 4yearold watching my favourite hero become an adult and see such a different story was both shocking and mesmerising.
    I remember watching the movie for the first time and looking at Robin and thinking "so that's what acting looks like". As a kid I could tell his performance was something special and he was the first actor whose real name I learned and memorised. Since then he has remained my favourite actor.
    My brother told me of his passing, on the day we were going on our summer holidays and I thought he was pulling a sick prank. I could not believe that he was gone and I never got to meet him and thank him.
    Since then I've been avoiding watching movies of his that I hadn't watched yet because I know they are limited and there will be no more and just by not watching them makes me keep him "alive" for longer.
    I took a picture with his wax figure at a museum and I started crying.
    He meant so much to me as a child. The movie "Hook" is to this day my favourite movie.
    Other movies of him I got to watch before hereaing about his passing was "Good Will Hunting" "Dead poets society" "Aladin" the robot one, "Jumanji" and the one where he would use a green slimy thing to jump around 🙈
    It still breaks my heart that he is gone and by his own choice. He brought so much joy into my life, I wish someone was there for him the way he was for me.

    I had many years where my first wife made me feel like everything was my fault but one day I woke up realizing it wasn’t me! And I got a divorce. I finally stopped blaming myself for her problems. This led to me finding my 2nd wife, my soul mate and having 16 years with her before she passed away. its true you can’t move forward till you face the now, and move past the obstacles. This video you really give some heartfelt confessions and Im sure it helps others to see there are ways out of their emotional traps!

    I know this video is a little dated, but I would be honored to comment. Rest in peace, Robin Williams. He’s probably one of the best actors of all time. He was a treasure of a person and was a gem of his career. Probably one of my idols. Fantastic actor. Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Jumanji, Hook. It surgically removed half of my heart learning his death/suicide. He’s such an inspiration to me. But it also opened me up to the struggles and overwhelm of being big. It can drain you, it can judge you, it can beat the snot out of you. He’s such an a saint, too. He was such a great man. My heart will forever go out to his daughter, Zelda and the whole Williams family. He touched me, personally like no actor has done. Ever. But I know his legacy will be the greatest shining star of the galaxy. Thank you, Mr. Williams. :) And thank you Chris for making this video. :)

      True. It's 5 years in August this year and I still can't believe that his gone. Him,Eddie Murphy and Jim Carrey are my top 3 favourite comedians of all time. All 3 made me laugh out loud.
      RIP Robin Williams.
      It was the Lewys Body Dementia that drove him to his suicide in the end. He didn't want to die but he didn't want to be a burden either as his condition would get worse and worse and he wouldn't remember who he would be as his memory will be deteriorating and he would waste away to nothing.

Right now in life (school) , I’m being called nerd, stupid, idiot, stick arms geek, etc. (yes I’m a geek)People are telling rumors and false claims about me. I was really down. Filmmaking and Robin Williams would always put a smile on my face. Thanks Chris for making this video.

    If it weren't for Robin Williams, I wouldn't be the guy I am. I remember watching Jumanji and loving it. And his opening song in Mrs. Doubtfire got my love for music up another notch. He was a great man, a guy who I felt was my on-screen best friend. We love you Robin. RIP

    I don’t know if you read comments from past videos but, this video from all your other videos, has literally gave me chills and has made me cry. I’ve been watching your videos for quite awhile now and just watching you explain half of your story and explain how much one man, such an amazing actor and the most sweetest personality that I’ve ever seen on screen, has impacted your life was just really awe inspiring and just amazing. I’ve lost my mother, sister, grandma, and cousin. I’ve felt so much guilt for not seeing them more often, helping them more often, and just being there for them more often. I still do fill this guilt until this day and after watching this video, I feel that I shouldn’t feel that way anymore and I should just remember all the good memories that we all had and just try to go on through life as brave as I can be. Thank you so much for making an impact on my life, Chris. You’ll never know how much that means to me. Thank you for everything that you do and reviewing film in the most fantasticly respectful way ever! Keep doing what you do and never stop!

    It is beautiful how a masterpiece like Good Will Hunting brings back different memories for everyone: It will always remind me of early summer 2011, I was 19, fresh out of high school and on my first big adventure in NZ. 4 months in I met a crazy Brit with whom I am currently in Canada with. We snuggled up on the hostel couch watching this movie and just got to know each other. The moment at the end where Matt Damon does the voiceover "I had to go see about a girl" (with the perfect song accompanying it) just makes me smile every time since this is what he did 1,5 years after the end of my NZ trip since I ultimately had to return to Europe without him.

    I realize this video is 4 years old now, but I just had to comment.
    Chris, I started watching you after I saw your review of Searching, and I’ve just torn through your videos because you are just so much fun to watch and I love your reviews, and I feel you really inspire me. I’m an amateur movie critic, I’ve been doing reviews for my friends for years now and I’d like to start doing them more seriously. I really relate to you with your school bullying and such, as, aside from being extremely underweight my entire life (which I still am) I was always the butt of a lot of jokes too and I always blame myself for everything. This was a hard video to watch: both for you and for Robin Williams.
    Like every 90s kid, I grew up watching Robin Williams on repeat. I loved Jumanji, and Hook especially has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. I actually still have not been able to bring myself to watch it since Williams’s death 4 years ago. His death hit me very, very hard, and it felt so personal to me. I still tear up every time I think about Robin Williams.
    Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you, Chris, and I wanted to let you know what an inspiration you are.

    This is 4 years late, but Hook was probably the first film I was ever really into. And my father was into it too. So it was a kind of shared thing. It’s just such a pity. I feel Robin Williams was one of the few people who genuinely enjoyed making people laugh and teaching them little important things. He wasn’t just there for gags, his comedy and his roles usually meant something important. For that, he was a very precious individual and it’s so sad he lost in the end to his own depression. I hope wherever he is, if there is some sort of life beyond death, that he at least can now see just how much joy he brought to so many people.

      Side note: I actually teared up while watching you talk about your own issues.
      I only know you from your videos, but as far as I can tell you’re a great guy! Love your reviews and your stance on film as an art form and the way you give every film a fair chance. Keep it up, man. Great channel. And pity the fools who want to tear you apart. They are sad individuals.
