With the recent death of Robin Williams still shaking the nation, people everywhere are remembering all of the joy and entertainment he brought to the table.

The St. Paul’s student body joins the rest of the country in reliving his legacy through his works. The Paper Wolf conducted interviews asking students about their favorite movies and quotes that Williams so generously, and at times gratuitously, gave us.

MOC8Pre-freshman Cameron Morris said that his favorite Robin Williams work was “Old Dogs” because he enjoyed Willilams’ humor.

MOC2Ninth grader Kent Shiell loved “Jumanji,” as did the majority of the students surveyed. Almost all enjoyed Williams’ top-rate comedy in this film.

MOC1Sophomore August Latapie enjoyed “Jack.” “I liked how his friends still hung out with him even though he was the odd one out. It was a very Lasallian way to treat someone,” said Latapie.

JuniorsTo juniors Nick Gordon and Matt Gallagher, the “Night At The Museum” soon-to-be trilogy was one of William’s best forays into the film world due to the star power of the film. The third installment is being set for release on Dec. 19, 2014.

MOC12Senior Seth Cabrera had a favorite quote from Williams: “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And, the human race is filled with passion.” He loved this quote because it was such a raw and natural quote. This quote, originally from the movie “Dead Poet’s Society,” saw its most recent use in the Apple company’s commercial for the iPad. One of the final phrases in the quote, “What will your verse be?”, is still used today in Apple’s commercials.

SimpsonReligion teacher Robert Simpson especially liked “The Fisher King.” According to Simpson, “It’s a very different movie, but it’s insightful into the ups and downs of mental illness.”
