House on Haunted Hill (1959) I was in a classic horror movie mood. I also listened to the rifftrax which is free on Hulu and very funny.
Toys (1992) Continuing my Robin Williams look back, Toys is one I liked a lot as a kid. It doesn’t exactly hold up as much today, but I love the visual style and production design. It’s so bizarre, but so is the film’s tone. The movie was a commercial bomb when it came out, but it’s worth checking out at least once.
I had originally not wanted to see Galaxy Quest because I heard that it was making fun of Star Trek. Then Jonathan Frakes rang me up and said ‘You must not miss this movie! See it on a Saturday night in a full theater.’ And I did, and of course I found it was brilliant. Brilliant. No one laughed louder or longer in the cinema than I did. - Patrick Stewart
