Mel Brooks is the absolute king of parody film. His work is know around the world, and has been the set example for all funny films in the modern world. He has made probably most of my favorite films, and some of the best movies ever. Here are some of my reviews of his films, and other stuff.
The Twelve Chairs is me and my families favorite comedy. As a Russian I love alot of this humor, and a bit is overlooked by people without a sharp mind. But I think everyone should watch it.
In 1920s Soviet Russia a fallen aristocrat Vorobyaninov and the town priest find that Vorobyaninovs mother had just before their palace was invaded during the revolution she had hidden an enormous amount of jewels in their families dining room chairs. Soon enough Vorobyaninov is on the hunt for the chairs. He eventually picks up a con artist and together they search for a treasure of jewels hidden inside one of twelve dining chairs, lost during the revolution.
Young Frankenstein is one of the funniest movies in black and white, with sound. Anyone that has seen it probably knows that this film is a bevy of quotes, and easily repeatable jokes. Although this film is old the humor is funny to all people, and I think everyone should see this just because you will know what true funny is. To anyone who’s seen this film check out these bloopers.
Blazing Saddles is on the same par as Young Frankenstein. Mel Brooks directed the amazing film, centered around modern issues such as corruption, racism and fart Jokes. Check it out.
