    This movie is only good if you're looking for cheesy yearbook quotes.

    This is the first time I've rewatched this since Robin Williams' death, and it was a really emotional time just for that alone. The theme of suicide echoed throughout and really hit home to me in a way that I cried way more than I had either time I'd saw this prior.

    The ending especially hit home as they were all saying goodbye, and it just really fucked with me emotionally, y'know? The whole experience was bittersweet - but mostly…

    With a performance of a lifetime from Williams, this one's a stellar watch especially for lovers of literature. A brilliant, heartfelt storyline... well-executed scenes... and spirited acting from Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard inject this film with "LIFE" in it's fullest meaning.
    Humorous, witty handling of the subject matter is one of the key strengths of the film.
    Literary references scattered throughout, the film takes you through a frank, compelling and enjoyable journey through a strict boys-only boarding school…

    Exceptional movie that proves a movie can give a stellar performance without jaw dropping budgets and kung-fu choreography. Stellar performance from a stellar cast. A must see.

    One of my all time favorites, and one of the most emotional endings to a film I've ever seen.

    OLD REVIEW: Realistic, dramatic, heartwarming, and saddening. This joyride of emotion inspires with fantastic characters with realism and a truthful story filled with heart and fun.

    One of my favorite Robin Williams films. Terribly sad, but so so good.

    "But only in their dreams can men be truly free. 'Twas always thus, and always thus will be."

    Decided to knock another of my rewatch list, off Mika's watchlist and tackle another of RW's heart-breaking films since I had just watched Fisher King, I thought, why spread the sadness out >_<</p>

    I don't think I need to say too much about DPS, its an old face, but its one of those films that really just breaks you down. I tried…

    Can anyone think of a better 1980s 'coming of age' movie? You have to appreciate a film that encourages critical, free-thinking skills. Where the system is portrayed for what it is and those who recognize the important of free thinking have their personal character built. When you're becoming an adult, very little else matters. Every teenager at some point should see this. Not to mention this was very well acted with a who's who of future stars. Just a great film.

    As far as '80s coming of age themes go, "Stand By Me" might be the only major contender in my book.

    After Robin Williams died, I made a mental note that I wanted to see this movie again. I first saw it years ago and watching it again I realized I had forgotten so much of it. Also, now that I'm much older, I found that I had a much stronger emotional resonance with the film's themes, particularly those of individuality and thinking for yourself. I always love movies about nonconformity and it's good to be reminded of it from time to time. R.I.P. Robin Williams
