Really? If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?
Is this some kind of a challenge or affront? ???

Yes, I really do see this movie as inspirational.

No, I have not seen the original, but I hope that my four-plus years of study of the Russian language gives me some little insight into the people and ideas in the movie.

all the pink panther movies with peter sellers.

But I gotta a question for some of the older folks, did anyone here see Blazing Saddles when it was _first_ released in the 70's? The talking elephant at the end of like the credits, across the entire movie screen ???

I think it was '74, me and the lead guitarist of Blue Cheer/Peterbuilt at the time decided to drop 4-way hits of window pane and go see it. There was a double-feature, forget what the other movie was... but we went basically for the just released Blazing Saddles. Could have been the other movie, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't. Anyway, because of the new release... there wasn't an empty seat in the theatre, some middle aged lady & her husband sat to the right of me. Well, I don't know if the lady was getting a contact high off me or me off her, but she kept cracking up which triggered me & it kept snowballing to the chagrin of her husband. She kept turning to her husband in hysterics, but he kept very staid so she'd then turn to me and grab my arm or knee which would set me off with her in hysterics. But what really blew our minds, was at the very end like at or just after the credits... is this huge pinkish supposedly talking elephant with like button eyes, that you realize is an actual upside down pair of balls (think scrotum) for the head and you can imagine what the freaking trunk was... across the whole screen. If you can imagine how unexpected and shocking that was for the time, well that did it... that woman literally went nuts (pun unintended), grabbed my leg, turned her head into my shoulder hysterically and we were just hanging on to each other in uncontrollable contagious laughter with tears running, the whole bit... her husband was not a happy camper, but we just couldn't help it. Anyway, I've watched that movie several times since... and it's not there via any of the rental or purchase versions, nor of course on television runs.... did they just have that in it just for the initial Calif. release, or did public pressure decide it was too over the top for the times and they cut it out?? I forget what the dialog from the "talking elephant" was... but I remember it was outrageously funny @ the time.

Does anyone else remember that originally being at the end of Blazing Saddles???:questionmark:

i prefer blue cheer video

"Airplane" is my favorite movie of all time. I think this clip is perfect for GIMers:

:favorites8: Already posted some of my faves in a previous post, but couldn't help injecting:

Weekend at Bernies (the first one) -- 1989

I never expected to laugh at this over and over again .......that surprised everyone, too! It's the perfect slapstick, silly, clever and ludicrous movie :biggrin:

:hahaha: Bernie's face.......................


IMHO, the older ones are more original and have more mental appeal :cool3:.............

Val Kilmer steals the show with his portrayal of Doc Holliday. One of our favorite movies. The scene in the bar when Doc and Johnny Ringo do that fancy handling, Ringo with a gun and Doc following every move with his whiskey cup. Fantastic!

I'll watch any one of these when they come on TV, plus we own copies of them on DVD. LOTR we have on BluRay. I devoured the books back in the day, and the movies were a must see for me. Great stuff.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Firefly series and move, Serenity, too. Great cast, excellent storyline, of course the network messed it up by bouncing it around all over the place.

"decided to drop 4-way hits of window pane"

Help out an over-70 dude, willya?

WFT does that quote mean?

Oh, yeah, I can probably guess it has something to do with some kind of drug (context, d'ysee), but it may as well be niggah rap from "Airplane". :confused:

Just watched two older movies again that never grew "old", totally pertinent in today's world of Deep State rampant corruption and removal of personal rights and freedom and privacy.

Action movies without a boring moment.

Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson

Enemy of the State with Will Smith and Gene Hackman

They sure beat anything that's come out of Hollywood in the past several years.

If you've never seen them, or have forgotten them, you'll be surprised of what is so relevant today in them.

If you want some similar movies, albeit a little older, check out the following:;

Parallax View with Warren Beatty (1974)
Three Days of the Condor with Redford, Faye Dunaway (1075)
The Conversation (1974, Francis Ford Coppola)

The latter film might be the most obscure but the most interesting/dark. The pacing is slow by todays standards but the antiestablishment perspective for a Hollywood film is refreshing.

Anyone else seen the movie, Coraline? it's a stop-action animated, geared-for-kids horror film that (imho) is a quite enjoyable watch.

Here's a short clip.

I have a hard time watching Saving private Ryan because I don't like Hanks or the little short kid. Band of brothers I agree, it's good.

The only modern war film I like is Siege at Jadotville, Film about an Irish company sent to the Congo working as Blue helmets. I hate the UN but the film and story are quite good.
