Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Mel Brooks Movie?

2 September 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The news of Gene Wilder's death got us thinking about Mel Brooks movies. After all, Wilder starred in many of his best, including The Producers, Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. Had Wilder never become an actor, the Mel Brooks filmography would look very different. "He was such a dear friend," Brooks told Jimmy Fallon. "I expected that he would go, but when it happens, it's still tremendous…I'm still reeling."

Now we have a question for you: What is the greatest Mel Brooks movie? Feel free to vote for »

Beyond He-Man and She-Ra: celebrating the Filmation legacy

31 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew Younger Sep 2, 2016

Tarzan, Space Sentinels, The New Adventures Of Batman, Flash Gordon, Bravestarr and more, as we salute Filmation...

For a child of the 1970s and 80s, nothing readied you for a half hour of quality entertainment quite like the Filmation logo. Immortalised by their phenomenal success with He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe, and its spin off She-Ra: Princess Of Power, Filmation produced some of the most fondly remembered animated series to grace the small screen.

Over a period of 26 years - in tandem with classic Doctor Who funnily enough - the company's writers, artists and producers delivered a staggering amount of programming. While naysayers point to Filmation's penchant for reusing a stockpile of rotoscoped body movements, or the heavy handedness of its moralising and educational content - children on the other hand, thrilled to an irresistible mixture of action, adventure and superhuman heroes.

Now something of a lost art form, »

The lead single from 1998’s “Americana,” “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)” was quite the success both nationally and at this writer’s elementary school. The Unusual Suspect is presumably a fan as well, given the painstaking efforts it must have taken to piece this three-minute video together. Among the other films featured are “This Is Spinal Tap,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Spaceballs,” “Deadpool,” “Tron,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Meet the Parents, »
