As we struggle to make sense of the death of Robin Williams, we've spent some time here remembering him as a person and his work. We're obviously just a few of the many, many people Robin Williams touched during his lifetime. Among them are the many people he worked with over the years, from his days as a guest star on 'Happy Days' to his upcoming role in 'Night at the Museum 3.' Below are some thoughts, prayers and remembrances from friends and family who had the pleasure of knowing him both on- and off-screen.
Robin Williams' death is shocking and heartbreaking and touches us in a way usually reserved for close friends. Maybe that's because we're of a generation that grew up on Robin Williams. He's been making us laugh and cheering us up since we were kids; like a big-screen father figure. That he died suffering from severe depression, makes the news all the more tragic. As director Garry Marshall, who first cast Williams in 'Happy Days' and later 'Mork and Mindy,' said today, "He could make everybody happy but himself."
He made everyone happy and in that spirit, we'd like to celebrate his work, and we asked a few of our writers to look back at their favorite moments of his career.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' has a lot of moving parts -- it's based on a comic book, it combines both casts of the original 'X-Men' movie trilogy and that of 'First Class,' and there's some pretty unique time traveling going on -- so it's understandable if those unfamiliar with the franchise or the story get a bit lost. That's where we come in! We give you everything you need to know about 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in just 60 seconds.
Two new parents in Santa Clara, California have a young daughter who loves the Pixar movie 'Up,' so they did what any awesome parent would do: they gave their Victorian home a fresh coat of paint to look like Carl and Ellie's house from the movie. It's adorable! But, the Charles Muntz's of the neighborhood aren't so happy and have complained to the Old Quad Residents Association about the new look. You might say they got all UP in arms about it....
The 2014 Oscars were loooong. In fact, we can't be entirely sure that they're not still going on somewhere. So, you can't be blamed if you took a pee break, got up to get some snacks and/or dozed off and missed something. It's OK, we got your back. In case you missed anything, we have a full list of all the Oscar winners, plus this quick handy wrap-up of all the other fun moments you may have missed.
Billions of people watched the 2014 Oscars around the world, so it's no surprise that when host Ellen DeGeneres took a selfie with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper and more, it was going to be popular. How popular? It broke Twitter.
Harold Ramis, the star of 'Ghostbusters,' writer of 'Animal House' and director of 'Caddyshack' and 'Groundhog Day,' has died at the age of 69 in Chicago. Ramis had been suffering from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis and had been in declining health since 2010.
The 2014 Golden Globes nominations are in and we already can’t wait for the awards ceremony! While the Oscars ceremony has Ellen DeGeneres hosting, comedic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are returning to host the Globes, which is awesome if you saw the hilarious job they did last year. But enough of that, let’s get down to the list of nominees!
We have our work cut out for us, getting you to watch a video of a marching band performing during halftime of a college football game. After all, that's when everyone leaves to get up, go to the bathroom and get a new beer. But this...THIS...you simply have to watch.
The Ohio State University Marching Band performed a tribute this weekend to 'Superman,' 'Jurassic Park,' 'Harry Potter,' 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Lord of the Rings' that will give you chills. We don't want to give too much away, but let's just say there's pyrotechnics. And, the entire marching band turns into a dinosaur that marches and eats a guy.
