Iím here and impatiently waiting...
Oh yeah, and Iím going to be a sporadic poster

Will try to get #100 up today.





100. Blazing Saddles (1974)

I think it's a masterpiece. It's actually the only Mel Brooks I've seen (looking forward to Young Frankenstein), other than his short film The Critic. First of all, Blazing Saddles could never ever be made today, in a world with Political Correctness and SJWs. This movie would be shredded by those types of people... but they don't understand that the movie is actually making fun of white people and racism through it's hundreds of horrible jokes about "n*****s" and rapes and overall the bad aspects of American culture. All the white people in this movie (with the exception of the Waco Kid) are absolute idiots who have no idea what they're doing, so when this movie is criticized for being insensitive I just have to laugh. Besides its political importance, Blazing Saddles is just a good time. It's so creative, and every scene is a delight. Of course the plot is in the background, as with most spoofs. Its a parody of a Western, so its the classic "innocent people of the village vs. Cowboy murderers" type of thing. And Mel Brooks plays it out perfectly. There are legitimately catchy songs, great jokes, fun characters, and much more in this film, one of the greatest comedies of all time in my opinion.



I'm not a fan of Blazing Saddles But nicely done presentation! And please do watch Young Frankenstein, it's a favorite of mine. Looking forward to the rest of this list.



I've not seen Blazing Saddles in quite a long time, but the only Mel Brooks movie I'm fond of is Robin Hood: Men in Tights. (I also liked Spaceballs when I was a kid, but I doubt I'd still like it if I were to watch it now.)

I watched both of those for the Golden Age Comedy HoF, as a matter of fact, I remember you bashing Blazing Saddles

Young Frankenstein would have made a top 150 but I like the humor of Blazing Saddles just a tad more.

That's right Young Frankenstein was one of the noms, I think it might have been mine. But why did you say this?

Oh, oops, I should proof read these before posting. This write up was taking directly from the Hall of Fame it was in, before I had seen Young Frankenstein.

...I do that too.

So you've seen to Mel Brooks films so far? I kinda liked Space Balls, if you're familiar with the original Star Wars you might like it.

I think I saw Space Balls but donít remember anything of it. So yeah I think those two are the only ones right now, looking forward to the Producers especially!

I've not seen The Producers, but I just read about it and it sounds pretty good and the reviews it's got here are pretty high too. It's hard to go wrong with Gene Wilder in a film, the man had some serious comic timing.



Like many here, Iíve seen Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs and Robin Hood.
Saddles and Frankenstein are great, Spaceballs is actually still pretty funny, Robin Hood is pretty bad.
I still need to see The Producers, The 12 Chairs, Silent Movie, High Anxiety, History of the World Part 1 and Life Stinks.
