“We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.”
Robin was an incredibly funny man who unfortunately left us today. I honestly am person who thinks that the best way to appreciate someone who contributed so much to the world is to appreciate what they brought into it. So, I thought I would help you by providing some links. I really hope he has found some peace.
I couldn’t find The Crazy Ones or season 3 and 4 of Mork & Mindy, I apologize, huns.

Brokeback for Brits.
Better than Brokeback (happy ending! For ‘ever and ever’!), and not just for Brits.
I just kinda wanted to say a thing :}
Jeez, The ending of Brokeback Mountain scarred me for life.
iizrett And that’s fine. :) But – gotta say this – I think ‘The ending of Brokeback Mountain scarred me for life’ is connected with why Maurice fans think Maurice is a better film.
The late LGBT activist Vito Russo wrote (and revised) The Celluloid Closet (1981/1986) – his famous book on the history of gay representation in the movies – too early to include Maurice. But, even by 1986, the history he identified was overwhelmingly one of negative representations and tragic endings.
Maurice (1987) is widely considered to be the first mainstream gay film to change all that. Brokeback, by contrast, is emotionally devastating because it’s a throwback to the tropes of gay tragedy that Russo complained of: secrecy, separation, denial, loss. Maurice, released 18 years earlier, does something cleverer. It gives us all the emotional angst, and even cues us to expect tragedy – only to turn that around and give Maurice and Alec a happy ending.
The happy ending is something E. M. Forster, writing in 1913-14, insisted on (against all probability, many critics thought) – and the reason why he feit unable to publish Maurice during his lifetime (as m/m sex remained entirely illegal in England until 1967 – 3 years before Forster’s death – and considerably later in Scotland and Northern Ireland). Ivory’s film – a romantic, swoony gay love story that ended happily, released at the height of the AIDS crisis – was almost as groundbreaking in 1987. But, in contrast with Brokeback, Maurice’s achievement is often, perversely, ignored…
cryingneedforthat: ‘Overcome with feels, utterly enraptured … the ur-text of slash…’ OH YES INDEED. There’s a Maurice photoset on this very theme back in the annals of Tumblr…
taylorcee591: Interested to know your comparative thoughts, watching Maurice and Brokeback for the first time back-to-back like that.
I remember watching this with my college girlfriend and when they first kissed we basically FELL into each other’s arms in the dark theatre, overcome with feels, utterly enraptured, it along withBrideshead Revisited was like the ur-text of slash and—

These before-and-after shots demonstrate the incredible power of visual effects on screen.
Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
Dude, seriously. This version is actually very accurate.
My Shakespeare professor in grad school said the same thing.
I think most Shakespeare movies are just so classy and highbrow with their gorgeous period costumes and mandatory snooty elocutionary accents that people forget how goofy this play actually is. The lines, the characters, the motivations, the babyfaced teen stars, I just… oh my god it’s all so real. I’ve heard a lot of people blast Baz Luhrmann for making such a campy adaptation and it’s just like no, you don’t understand, that was all Shakespeare.
Sometimes I wonder if the real reason it’s disliked is because it was so damn popular with teenage girls.
