Robin Williams' 10 Best Movies

Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Robin Williams won five Grammys, four Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Emmys, and an Oscar, not to mention more than $3 billion in lifetime grosses -- not bad for a stand-up comedian who became a household name as the star of Mork and Mindy, a Happy Days spinoff sitcom about a goofball alien. Now, please join us in paying tribute to one of Hollywood's most eclectic stars by looking back at some of his filmography's many dazzling critical highlights. We've focused on Williams' larger roles, which meant leaving out memorable-but-brief appearances in films like Hamlet and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, but we think you'll agree that what ended up making the cut was still pretty darn impressive.

Tomatometer Watch: Inception Gets First Rotten Review

"From the director of 'The Dark Knight'." Those words impart some serious expectations for Christopher Nolan's 'Inception', not just in commercial terms (the Bat-sequel took $533 million in the US alone) but also critical stature -- 2008's 'Knight' earned a lofty 94% "Fresh" rating on RT; the kind of numbers usually unheard of for a superhero film. In fact, Nolan's got a track record beyond the Bat that's going to be just as tough to measure himself against. Consider the stats: his 1998 debut, 'Following', is at 80% (with 20 reviews counted); 2001's breakthrough 'Memento' at 93% (134 reviews); 2002's thriller 'Insomnia' 92% (166 reviews); and 2005's 'Batman Begins' boasts an 85% fresh score (254 reviews). Even the critical runt of Nolan's litter, 2006's duel of the magicians 'The Prestige', is sitting on Certified Fresh with 75% from 187 reviews. Plenty to live up to, sure -- but if the early, ecstatic reviews arriving for the film are any indication, 'Inception' just might turn out to be Christopher Nolan's best-reviewed film yet. More…
