Mel Brooks movies ranked from best to worst
« on: November 20, 2020, 11:56:24 PM »
Only the movies he's directed.

1. Young Frankenstein
2. Blazing Saddles
3. The Producers (1969)
4. Spaceballs
5. Robin Hood: Men In Tights
6. History of the World: Part 1
7. High Anxiety
8. Silent Movie
9. Life Stinks
10. The Twelve Chairs
11. Dracula: Dead and Loving It
If the government is paying me enough to live, then work be damned.

Are all Republicans naturally lazy like lackey says he is?

Personally I put blazing saddles at the top, but those are the top 2 for sure and it's practically a toss up. I still laugh every time I watch either of them.

YF, definitely #1 for me. And I would say easily top 5 of all time (My top 5 shifts around a lot). Absolute and utter pure genius at every note. Blazing, easy second.

I have to go back and watch The Twelve Chairs. I haven't seen it in decades, but my recollection was that I loved it and might move it up.

Bottom line: Mel, a National Treasure.

It's a tough choice for sure. They're both two of the funniest movies of all time.

Twelve Chairs has that potential for me too, and possibly Silent Movie. I haven't seen either in a very long time.
