@Blazing Saddles lovers:

I stand behind my assessment. It is not hard to decide whether a comedy is good or not all that matters is how much I laugh and if the laughs were of quality. I watched the film and laughed only a few times and even then they were minor. I had huge expectations but the film is so poorly written and dumb, I mean "build a replica town for them to terrorize" even for a parody this is shoddy work. Especially if you compare it to something like Monty Python and the Holy Grail which is a similar parody but made on a smaller budget, that movie was funny and brilliant.

Keep up the nitpicking, movie watching is no fun if everyone has the same opinion.

Dude, that's Mel Brooks that you're bad mouthing.  He's much better than any of the VGChartz writers.  :p

Whoa...  I just noticed that you also rated the Karate Kid remake as a good movie.  For the love of God, what are you thinking?


The Karate Kid remake is in no way a bad movie. Aside from the rather brutal fighting scenes against 11 year olds. I like Young Frankenstein as far as Mel Brooks goes but Blazing Saddles just does not do it for me.

The Karate Kid remake is a bad movie in many ways.  Take off your jacket...  Put on your jacket...  My favorite thing about the movie is how it takes place in China, and the fighting style that Jackie Chan is teaching mini-Fresh Prince is called Kung Fu (he evens says that he's teaching him Kung Fu).  There is no karate in the movie...  I hope that Jackie got a nice paycheck to be involved in this embarrassment.  I'm going to assume that you have seen the original Karate KId and would like to ask you in what way do you think that the new one is superior?  Besides for the fact that Jackie Chan could kick Pat Morita's butt I have nothing.

At least we agree on Young Frankenstein.

You did say to nitpick.  :p

Also Watched The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly this summer, hands down best movie i have seen this year, and one of my overall favorites.



Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Forest Swords 

I don't get all the love for HP:DHPII. Sure it was an ok film and better than quite a few of the films in the franchise (especially the early ones with some of the worst acting I've ever seen) but it wasn't great. And the epilogue was actually done worse than in the book (where it was done terribly). They didn't look middle aged, Ron had put on some weight, Harry hadn't shaved in a couple of days and Hermione had her hair up - otherwise they looked identical to their ~18 year old selves.

I actually like the Last Action Hero when I was a kid considering that I pretty much ate up all Arnold's movies then. My taste have probably changed but I still would give it 3/5 (Netflix rating) just because of Arnold.

Also, you have Gladiator as a meh movie...  Not sure why the hell that is.  It is at least a 3-4/5 movie.

Blazzing Saddles is at least a 3/5 also.  If you don't think Mel Gibson did a very good job on that movie then you should try Robin Hood: Men in Tights.  If you don't like that movie then I am not sure what to say to you.

As a matter of fact I don't think Mel Gibson did a very good job on that movie because he was not involved in any way shape or form. :p

Oops I meant Mel Brooks...  I apparently got the two Mels mixed up.

Easy to do since Mel Gibson hates Jews and Mel Brooks is a Jew.

I don't understand this since a Jewish guy invented Lethal Weapon and made Mel Gibson a lot of money.

I knew they do Kung Fu and the title was a misnomer but that was to cash in on the previous films obviously. I like the movie because Jackie Chan is in a different kind of role than he is used to, not really fighitng but he still has a great physical presence. Also I give credit to Jaden Smith for holding his own onscreen with Jackie Chan and doing some impressive stunts. I love the setting, I think it is nicely shot and it entertained me.

I have seen the original. I never said the new one was superior, just that it is a good film.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly is awesome along with the other Man With No Name movies.  If you guys like that trilogy, you should check out Once Upon A Time in the West.
