Face-Off: Blazing Saddles vs. Young Frankenstein

With the recent passing of the great Gene Wilder , fans all over the world have been looking back at many of the actor's classic performances and remembering the man himself. While WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY features, for many of us, Wilder's most cherished performance, there's very little you can compare that film with (including that unfortunate Burton/Depp endeavor from 2005),...

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Mel Brooks

Last week, we took a look at the career of Russell Crowe , an actor whose presence or gravitas is unmatched. This week’s subject has his own kind of gravitas, albeit if you compared the two they couldn’t be more different. One thrills us while this week’s guy makes us laugh until it hurts. Mel Brooks     Nobody makes...

Cool Videos: This supercut of cinema within cinema is beautiful!

You might not believe me since I used a picture of a Gremlin, but I promise you this is one beautiful and well edited supercut. We love movies and so do a lot of characters that appear in the films we watch, or a theater is a setting for a scene in the film. Called "Movies in Movies," this supercut contains 139 clips from 93 different movies. Some are used multiple times, but...

Mel Brooks names his 5 favorite scenes from his own films. Okay, 8 favorite scenes

I recently watched the American Masters documentary on Mel Brooks entitled MAKE A NOISE and immediately wanted to go back and re-watch all of his films. The guy is so genuinely funny that it is a shame he hasn't directed a film since 1995's DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT. But, after winning more awards than any living entertainer (Grammy, Tony, Oscar, Emmy, and more), Brooks is...

Charlize Theron hitches her wagon to Seth McFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West

I've heard a lot of people bash on Charlize Theron . I even had a girlfriend who had some very unkind words for Miss Theron. And I defended her, and will continue to defend her, not because she's hot (she is) or because I think she's a fantastic actor (she's not the best ever, but she's decent depending on the role). No, I will "throw down for Theron" because of her role as Rita Leeds in...

Yee-haw! Black Dynamite is getting a sequel that will be a western homage in the vein of Blazing Saddles

Dyn-o-mite! BLACK DYNAMITE was actually kind of brilliant.  It flawlessly captured everything about the Blaxsploitation genre it was paying homage to, both the good and the bad.  Now while that didn't always do the movie quite the favor it might have hoped (despite the funk and the kung-fu action and the hilarious lines, it wore out its welcome 2/3 of the way in), you could...
