Dock that jink a days pay for napping on the job. Y'all sang like song birds when y'all was slaves. Camp town ladies sing that song do da do da. No group was spared in Blazing Saddles. Richard Pryor wrote a lot the script. Back when America laughed and didn't take things seriously.
It might be made just the sell would really have to make it obvious that the rascist were bad, there are movies like 'Black Klansman' with the exact same premise a black person joins high up ranks in a rascist society or the police and then uses his power to take down people doing wrong, it would need a good sell is all, it is obviously making the rascists seem stupid and evil so it is not unreasonable to have it produced.
I think Blazing Saddles is one of the greatest comedy satires of all time, and SHOULD be remade! With Dave Chappelle as Sherriff Bart (already worked w/ Brooks: Robin Hood). Steve Zahn or Owen Wilson as Waco Kid. Other possible cast: Will Farrell or Thomas Lennon as Headly Lamar, Zach Galafanakis or Jack Black as Gov Lepetomane, Woody Harrelson or Thomas Haden Church as Taggard, Bill Burr as Lyle, Dave Bautista as Mongo. I bet several A-listers would beg for a part.
Wish I had money to produce it. The SJW crying would only fuel box office fire. Please somebody reboot this comedy classic.
It was funny then, and it's even funnier NOW - BECAUSE of the stupid SJW/Regressive left/social engineering BS warfare they're trying to shove down our throats.
This movie makes fun of everyone...and gets away with it...brilliantly. Such is the humor of the great Mel Brooks!
Dave Cullen, name that Campus: education means a BETTER understanding of irony and satire, you propagandist for bigotry and racism. Assuming all students are "SJW," a pejorative term commonly used by dimwit racists and misogynists to describe their opponents, without a single example, and specifically stating they can't understand satire or irony, seems like cynical clickbait. Sure bigotted idiots fall for clickbait like this, but you're really reaching, and you sound like a bigot yourself for even using the term SJW. Why are you in bed with Racists?
I LOVED this movie!! Saw it on the big screen. Thanks for bringing it up. Mel Brooks was the coolest. Trinity Is My Name & Cat Balloo & Wandering Star. All wouldn't get made now. If they did it would be insipid rubbish.
brilliant movie, what else do u need to say. glad iam a 1970s kid and was around in the 80s and 90s to have my childhood,
nowadays its all liberal faggot SJW millenials, cant smoke any where anymore, cant whistle to a nice lady, cant make funny movies because some gay might get butthurt, no one had a stupid phone so we all enjoyed each others company, damn iam getting old and sentimental, i miss those days when men were men and woman were ladies!, not only the fashion but everything, look at a 1990s predator, rambo, real manly man!! doing manly stuff, now all movies got too have atleast 1 white, 1 yellow and 1 black of each gender in it, and throw in a few gays and lesbians and trans-whatevers else someone will feel left out!, nowadays you enter a competition and everyone gets a medal!!!, whilst in the old days only the top 3 got medals!!...i can go on and on!!!, but fuck it!!.,.,political correctness SJW millenials RUIN EVERYTHING!!!!!, soon men with chest hair are not allowed anymore!!, cause too threathening to some wussy faggot!!!
Thanks to the the increasingly left wing world we live in we are all at some point absolutely fucked . Thank god il not be round long enough to see it and feel blessed to have been at an age to enjoy the likes of this film !
Blazing Saddles was a FANTASTIC FUCKING MOVIE.... The ending was hilarious.... I would have never known this movie had my 10th grade high school teacher never shown the film in class..... and my English teacher showed (We Sleep) They Live.... another funny sci fi movie from the 80s-90s .... :V
I would also point out that a film like this can be made today. A film like this was made recently and it was called Tropic Thunder. It featured all the things that are un-pc, including Robert Downey Jr. in blackface and multiple used of the phrase, "you never go full retard". Did the left get up in arms? Of course not as we have a sense of humor.
As a proper female with conserved upbringing, I've never appreciated this film. However, I will download it for posterity sake. I do believe we need to preserve conceptional films and ideas. I was amused with it.!
I wish more people mentioned Phil Hendrie. Phil Hendrie is the ultimate satirist. 3 hours a day of politically incorrect satire from 1990 to pretty much today. I think his best years were from 1995 to 2006. That's a pretty good run for one guy.
I have been banned on Twitch for streaming his material. What a goddamned JOKE of an internet we have in 2018.
When in the past the new up-and-coming comics would develop their way, most have given up the college circuit.
The audience is way too sensitive and EVERYTHING triggers them.
It ain't comedy if doesn't offend somebody.
Dude this film is glorified by pretty much every liberal, it’s a liberal film. It was co-written by cleavon little, their black lead. What is this dude talking about. This film doesn’t insult liberals because it’s made by and for liberals
I agree and disagree with some of the stuff you said. You're right about it not being able to be remade today because of "delicate sensibilities" but demonizing an entire generation that uses the word "nigga" without the hard r. Is a bit of an invalid argument. Also, though I do agree with Hollywood being regressive, I don't think it's shying away from racist overtones, seeing as Django unchained was received well by the public. Though there are some that didn't like the word being used. I do this really interesting thing called, "ignoring it and moving along with my life instead of creating a video that makes me sound like a whiny bitch because his 'delicate conservative sensibilities' are being encroached on by 'sjw liberal snowflakes'." Which is ultimately why I find this argument fascinatingly stupid and hilarious. Waaa, the snowflakes hurt my feelings because they're sensitive bitches, and I don't like it. So I'm going to make a video about how much of a stupid sensitive bitch I am, just to show them! Waaa!
Them millenials are so full of it..hearing rap music today is disgusting and hypocracy..they use the n word constantly..fighting oppression with oppression is not the way to go.."I AM RIGHT"noone can tell me different..#LIBTARDATION IS A DISEASE
The only people I hear saying it would never could come out today are conservatives. Progressive people know that this movie parodies racists by showing what they really are. Look how many similarities are in this movie to what the administration and its follows are like today.
Also sad all the main actors are dead and Mel Brooks only one pretty much left alive. Also things are so bad what used to be comedians bread and butter is no longer. Colleges were a main stay of comedians and many top flight acts no longer play them. The snowflakes just get to offended so those outlets are not played as much.
As a die-hard liberal, I love this film. I defy anyone to point out where the uproar over this film is. I find it convenient that you condemn the "SJW Snowflakes" who haven't said anything about it, just so you can bitch about political correctness. "How dare we take into account the feelings of others?" Um, because some of us aren't assholes?
There was a part in the movie, I had been missing the several dozen times I’ve watched it, but I’ve seen recently about how the blacks are saying everything that was invented, was made by them, but in the movie, sheriff Bart says Beating Mungo was easy, inventing the candy gram was the bitch, and I’ll bet they won’t give me Credit for it.
Blazing Saddles is a classic and a one-off. However, we have no means of determining how much people were offended by the film when it was first released. That said I am sure African-Africans appreciate the film more now than they would have back in the seventies.
When i was young in the sixties & seventies a night out at the cinema was the norm at the weekend,but i have not been to the cinema for over 20 yrs,because the pc brigade have just killed the film industry,the films today especially comedies are only suitable for children,its so childish,i remember going to watch this film and it was so original & so funny,even the niggas who were there laughed,because they took it for what it was COMEDY
Except the reason it could not be made today is not because SJWs would somehow stop it but because movie studios take no risks any more. When it came out it was picketed and boycotted just like many of the controversial comedy movies from that time period and just like it would be today, the only difference is that it was mainly snowflakes on the right then rather then the left who objected. It is not like we have regressed to the 1950s when it actually could not have been made because of obscenity laws.
But there is nothing stopping it from being made today it is not like any of the laws have changed. But since you cannot guarantee it will be profitable no one will pay for it.
Of course it's racist. I think it's intended to be, but like the video states it's a satire making fun of racism. With this movie Mel was a genius at spotlighting the ridiculousness of racist mindsets. One of my favorite movies of all time. Oh, and just a nitpicky thing about the video here. HeDLey Lammar wasn't the territorial Governor. He was the attorney general. The Governor was played by Mel Brooks himself.
Im a white liberal. You would probably shove me into your snowflake/sjw categories. But blazing saddles is one of my all time favorite movies. This kind of humor doesn't offend me. Im am however disturbed by your condescending attitude toward people who dont share your opinions. Can't we have conversations with each other anymore without demeaning those who disagree with us?
Couldn't be made by a major company maybe. Tarantino could do it. I think race based satire is still legit. As a mutt country we should be able to laugh at our cultural differences, not pretend they don't exist.
Anyone who thinks Blazing Saddles is racist either hasn't seen it, or needs their understanding of racism spoon-feeding to them.
It lampoons racism brilliantly, and it's exactly that kind of humour that demolishes racism more effectively than any PC speech censoring.
Political correctness is mainly just the push back against white males who have gotten away with so much, for centuries.
Blazing Saddles could be made today but it wouldn't be at the expense of people of color.
