What's Your favorite Score From A Robin Williams Film?

 
 Posted:   Aug 12, 2014 - 6:31 PM   
 By:   Adm Naismith   (Member)

I don't know that it's my favorite, but the score to RV has a very funny section. The music by James Newton Howard is performed by a country-type ensemble, including a male vocaliser. The music is a bit reminiscent of Raising Arizona.

In a scene towards the end of the film, Williams' RV is balanced on the peak of a hill and the only way out is to rock the thing forward so the wheels touch the ground again. As Williams tries to rock the giant RV the vocaliser comments on the action with little Mmm-Hmms and Mmm-mms. Very amusing.

I'm glad that the ghoulish time period has passed to start this thread.


HOOK! and if I may, the heartbreaking BICENTENNIAL MAN.

Rest in Peace Robin! And peace and comfort to your family.

I could just hear him (Robin) if it was yesterday in his first stand-up in the great beyond, saying something like "I'm not even cold yet and these Freeken FSM Fan boys are talking about their freeken favorite scores from the movies I was in! Now, down boy Mr. Happy!"

Rest In Peace Robin Williams - I sincerely hope the "after life" is what you wanted it to be and more! It's so sad....

If I was to choose my favorite score - we all know that it is John Williams' HOOK that stands out as the best - not only as a favorite score from a Robin Williams movie, but simply - one of the best scores for the movies themselves!

The 2 runners up are both from composer James Horner:

BICENTENNIAL MAN - followed by - JUMANJI

What Dreams May Come - Michael Kamen.

Someone in an Amazon.com review commented that this music could easily be the soundtrack to their life. Powerful film, and performance by Williams, and it deals with the topic of depression and suicide.

Fantastic score.

For me, it's a toss-up between HOOK and A.I. -- two superb Williams scores that both feature in my Top 50 soundtrack list of all time.

Also honourable mentions to Morricone's WHAT DREAMS MAY COME and ALADDIN.

oh, of coure A.I. too, but the Robin Williams part is so small (just a voice-only small part), that i didn't even consider it a Robin Williams film.

True, it's small, but it's still pretty good. Dr. Know for the win!

His voice work in animated films was on par with his acting work, IMO, none more so than ALADDIN.

Once again, Maurice Jarre's work on Dead Poets Society; "Keating's Triumph." It's about the eleventeenth time I've mentioned it on this board this week.

One particular film that has always stuck with me is a film called "Insomnia" score by David Julyan and also starring Pacino.
