Rest in Peace, Robin Williams

Robin Williams always stood out from the crowd. Was he hyper? Manic? Whatever it was, it was always magic. Mr. Williams always seemed to know how to make the world laugh, though there was always an undercurrent of seriousness in everything he did. While he got his start on ABC's goofy Mork and Mindy, it was his dramedy films for Disney's Touchstone Pictures that showed he could tackle the more serious roles that came his way. In Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society he proved that he could do much more than just make us laugh, though he wouldn't earn an Academy Award until 1998's Good Will Hunting, a film released by Disney's Miramax Films division.

In 2009, Robin received the coveted Disney Legends award. Even if the aforementioned films were all he had done for Disney his honor would have been well earned, but Robin also brought to life the liveliest cartoon character who ever graced the silver screen- The beloved Genie from Aladdin.

Hopefully Mr. Williams has found the peace and joy he provided to his many fans. The world will certainly miss one of its funniest clowns.

Beyond Belief: Space Mutiny

There's much that's beyond belief in this picture- the Santa stand-in ogling the poodle haired bleach blonded vixen, the Jane Fonda video refugee staring down at what seems to be nothing at all, the Gene Simmons and Rutger Hauer look-alikes carefully studying "science". It's a lot of strangeness for just one picture. But the strangest thing that happens in Space Mutiny is surprisingly none of the aforementioned things. It's that Lady Gene Simmons gets murdered and yet through the wonders of bad continuity, is shown as being alive a few scenes later. At least the writers of Space Mutiny can blame bad editing and not bad science for their beyond belief moment.

Defying all the laws of science and common sense, Captain Joe Patroni opens up a Concorde's cockpit window and shoots a flare to evade a missle "accidentally" aimed at his aircraft. Accepting the "fact" that a cockpit window on the freaking Concorde is able to be opened, how does Mr. Patroni manage to accomplish this task without his arm getting torn off? And that's the least of the problems with this scene as shown below:

I guess, as Mr. Patroni crudely states moments earlier, that's why "they don't call it the cockpit for nothin', honey!"

With rumors that a Hocus Pocus sequel is in the works, Hollywood is wondering whether Sarah Jessica Parker will be galloping back to reprise her role. While some insist that she's ready to hit the starting gate, others say her fans should hold their horses until an official statement is made. Insiders say that Disney is willing to pony up whatever it takes to get her back since she was the glue who held everything together in the first film.

Blind Kiyomi No Name Hall of Fame: Ya Dumb Broad

Credited only under the line he yells out the window, Rick Seaman nonetheless makes a big impression. In Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! Hero Frank Drebin commandeers a vehicle so that he can chase after a suspect. Unfortunately for him, he has stumbled into a car driven by a teen driving student.

Under the patient guidance of her driving instructor, the young lady drives the wrong way down a one way street, coming upon a truck driver played by Mr. Seaman who shouts the classic line "Ya dumb broad!" (Which is how he's credited in the film.)

Years later, Mr. Seaman's classic line is still recited by fans of the movie and remains one of the funniest parts of a very funny film. For that, we induct him into our No Name Hall of Fame.

Movies They'd Like to Forget: Steve Martin Edition

It couldn't have possibly seemed like a good idea, could it? Take a bunch of mostly unrelated Beatles songs, get the BeeGees and Peter Frampton to sing most of them, then fashion it all into a barely coherent film. Crazy, right? Well Robert Stigwood didn't think so. Fresh off the success of mega-hits Grease and Saturday Night Fever, he must have thought he was invincible. So why not hire the biggest band of the 1970's and have them perform disco versions of the songs from biggest band of the 1960's? All in an over produced film with a ridiculous script?

We've mentioned the film before, but today we'll highlight a particularly bizarre scene- the Maxwell's Silver Hammer sequence. The classic Beatles song tells about a young man who becomes a serial killer of sorts. In this film, however, Steve Martin's Maxwell is a demented doctor who sings about himself while dancing around with people dressed like a Boy Scout troop. Make sense? Not really, but Steve Martin singing a Beatles song isn't the most bizarre thing about the film. And that says a lot.

Embarrassing Moments in Cinematic History: Mae West Edition

We now re-visit another classic misfire- Myra Breckinridge. Many people forget that the legendary Mae West retired from Hollywood fairly early in her career. Hamstrung by the Hayes Code which put a damper on her ribald jokes and smutty entendres, Mae West chose to quit making pictures rather than conform to the prudish censorship office.

Flash forward to the 1960's. Free love and the collapse of the studio system brought new freedoms and a new rating system. By this time, Miss West was intrigued by the possibilities and was willing to come out of retirement for the right film. She thought that film would be Myra Breckinridge.

Mae went all out on this one, writing smutty one liners and even warbling bizarre versions of popular songs. Already a tacky mess, the film became even more of a slog when it stops to allow Miss West a chance to perform. Why a slutty old casting directress would prance around and sing at a night club is never explained and the audience is left worrying about whether Miss West will break a hip. It was an embarrassing comeback and the financially successful Mae West would wait another ten years to attempt another cinematic comeback in the equally scorned Sextette.

Movies They'd Like To Forget: Revenge of the Cheerleaders

Although he has starred in more embarrassing things since then, David Hasselhoff probably is still most embarrassed about this racy low budget sleazefest- Revenge of the Cheerleaders. He plays a horny character with the distinguished name of "Boner" who acts just as we'd expect such a character to act. Despite the depths to which Hasselhoff stoops in this film, he still manages to stay above the all time low of drunkenly eating a cheeseburger off the floor. (But not by much.)
