So, considering the fact that I have finally decided to write the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… Which is coming soon… I decided to revisit one of my favorite posts of all time: My Favorite Movies of All Time. Here is the thing, opinions change, ideas change, and ultimately my tastes have changed. Some movies have become more prevelent in my mind. Some… Some have fallen off the board altogether. When I originally created my Top 25 list… I completely snubbed a few of my favorite movies due to good ole fashion forgetfulness. As such, movies like Die Hard and Reservoir Dogs have made and rectified the list. So with that said, please enjoy my Top 25 FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

So in honor of Robin Williams and his memory this is my Top 5 Greatest Robin Williams Movies of All Time.
This list is my personal opinion based on the quality of the movie and the impact that it had on the viewing population and the career of Mr. Williams. If you disagree with it, I am always welcoming of a friendly debate. This list is also meant to commemorate his movie roles, not his television roles so you will not find Mork and Mindy on this list.
