  • Summary: Dead Poets Society is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of Robin Williams career. There is no dispute over Williams performance, as it is considered to be one of the best of all time, and the film is so revivered, that it's require viewing in many education classes, but just how good a film was it? Robin Williams stars as Professor John Keating, an unconventional teacher who inspired his students to push the boundaries of the way they think.

  • Summary: An excellent film with great writing and great acting by the entire cast. The film has a great message and it is in no way predictable. Also the story line is extremely gripping. That is what makes this film truly great.

  • Summary: This is a film whose very fibers engender truly moving sentiments through what is Williams' best performance to date, an illustrious script and an overall gorgeous portrayal of honest human emotions. 'Dead Poet's Society' is packed with memorable one-liners that are consistently quoted in the film world, and can proudly be called a film classic.

  • Summary: One of the best movies I watched. It helped me through a lot in my life. Williams was pretty good in that movie - his character made me rethink everything. I enjoyed the movie from the beginning until the end. And even though I'm a male, I cried at the ending.

  • Summary: Dead Poet's Society is an easy to watch coming-of-age / youth-against-the-man flick which espouses the beauty and meaning of literature. It's well acted and written, with a nice lightness of touch. Dead Poets Society is in no way revelatory or profound but it is entertaining.

  • Summary: I must admit, Dead Poets Society has been slightly ruined for me by the numerous parodies and references to it both on TV and in films over the years. I guess it's my own fault for not seeing it sooner. It hinges on a fantastic central performance by Robin Williams, playing Mr. Keating, the physical embodiment of everyone's perfect teacher.

  • Excerpt: Robin Williams will always be best known for his off the cuff comedy, and more often then not his dramatic turns in film. Long before his Oscar winning role in Good Will Hunting his part of Mr. Keating in this excellent 1989 offering Dead Poets Society easily shows he had the acting chops to not just act comedic crazy, but mix his off beat humor and show some real depth of human character. Essentially Dead Poets is about that one thing. Character.

  • Excerpt: Very disappointing realease. I really really like that movie and I had hoped for at least a decent transfer whereas this looks only slightly better than an SD presentation. Washed out colors, a soft image which doesn't show much detail.
