    This movie and Mrs Doubtfire must be rated as Williams better efforts. Both would, or should be rated 8/10.
    Aladdin, Paradise City, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs Doubtfire..., and that is forgetting some of his good dramatic roles.

    Williams had several great films.
    Yup. Dead Poets Society, What Dreams may Come, Patch Adams....and one of my favorite Robin Williams roles, The Fisher King.

    Damn, I miss him.
    And Good Will Hunting. I miss him so much.

    Without a doubt, Mrs Fire was one of his best.

    I watched three movies recently. First up: Alita: Battle Angel

    There's a lot that's great about this movie, but even more that's not-so-great. The setting is a seedy, gritty futuristic city underneath a floating citadel of wealth and luxury, with mostly cyborg citizens engaged in a cut-throat struggle for the slightest chance to ascend. The main character is a cyborg with anime girl eyes who somehow manages to avoid falling into the uncanny valley. Her looks are strange but not off-putting, and the way she moves through her world is very well done. Where this movie fails is how it presents her motives, feelings, and connections with others. Alita is convincing as a cyborg but not as a person. Moments that should carry an emotional punch don't, not even when we see her displays of anger, fear, sadness, etc. Things happen, she reacts, and good or bad it's all the same to the audience.

    Maybe she didn't avoid the uncanny valley after all. 6/10

    Next up: Sword of Trust

    This is an odd, rambling movie about a pawn shop owner, his underachieving employee, a couple from out of town, the internet, conspiracy theories, money, regrets, and a whole lot more. The movie is a bit unfocused, but I can't complain because even the bits that didn't quite fit together were entertaining. The main point seems to be an examination of the morality of peddling bullshit for profit, and that's what drives the action, but the most interesting part was focused on something else entirely. In the end it just sort of... ends. 8/10

    And third: Shazam!

    This movie is fun! It doesn't take itself too seriously and hits the right comedic notes while still presenting a solid superhero story with an actual point. There are a few minor plot holes and it's not going to carry the DC franchise to greater glory all by itself, but it's an enjoyable romp through superhero lore and I'd recommend it to anyone. 8/10

    Closer To Home A little known gem of a movie, probably based on many fact based stories.

    Closer to Home weaves a universal, haunting tale of two people inexorably drawn together for vastly different reasons. Dalisay struggles to journey from the Philippine countryside to New York City to marry Dean, a disillusioned ex-merchant marine. She's hoping to buy a cure for her dying sister and, ultimately, a future for her debt-ridden family, while he hopes to escape his disintegrating American family through love and a family of his own. A powerful, controversial film that quietly builds to a shattering collision of aspirations and cultures.

    10/10

    justice league: -2/10

    it's on HBO so i let it run while doing other things. this isn't even a movie. it's like the room, or troll 2. this is a meteoric and shocking pile of shit.
    i've seen the other DC films in some capacity or another and all of them are useless crap but this doesn't even rise to the level of being a competently shot and edited film.

    Robin Williams plays both roles so well, you almost forget he is acting. It is odd, because you know he is Mrs. Doubtfire, but you can't tell when watching it. It is a bit easier with all the masking and makeup and bodysuit, but still, when you can't really identify the actor from the character, that is when you've done remarkably.

    Watching End Game again and really feel the movie is better on the second run through, and I thought it was very good after the first watch in the theater. While the plot breaks down a bit when you start pondering the real world complications of the resolutions and the 'controversial' Steve Rogers ending, the film did a great job of resetting after the unbelievably intense Infinity War (of which few films will ever match up with intensity wise). Stitching 21 (22?) films together into one finale was asking a tremendous amount of the writers. But they pulled it off remarkably well.
