Another entry in our Robin Williams rewatch, this one I remember seeing in theaters back in 2002 and not being happy with how serious Robin was in the film. Here we are 20 years later and I’m just fine seeing him expanding from pure humor. This wasn’t his first, nor his last serious role, but I think it’s one of the few that he got absolutely no laughs at all from me during the film, even the movies about suicide or dead children had a couple funny moments.
One thing that I know is that I would not being able to live in Alaska with the “always daylight” or “always night” situation they have going on in parts of the state. I like to have a pitch black room and have the sun wake me up in the morning, and while technology is there for wake up lights, it’s just not the same thing.
