"@rewster - Totally agree. And crazy to me how few cast members from Blazing Saddles are still alive now."

"@Director Black - Just updated my list with my choice from last night, but yeah I'll probably honor him again next year. Fortunately he left behind plenty of excellent films to choose from."

Blazing Saddles
Re-watch - Aug. 29th
Under different circumstances I would have watched another film from my queue, but the loss of Gene Wilder could not go unrecognized. I almost reached for Young Frankenstein instead since that's my favorite film he ever made, but it hasn't been long since I last watched it whereas it's been longer since I last watched Blazing Saddles. This is still one of the funniest films ever made & justifies its high placement on the AFI's comedy list. The ways it pokes fun at westerns and skewers racism while also breaking film rules at the time, plus the stellar cast...I mean, I can't think of anything that doesn't work here. It's all golden. And I love that the ending takes part of its cue from Looney Tunes. And of course Gene Wilder is one of the elements that elevates the entire film. While other actors were originally considered to play the Waco Kid I think it's safe to say anyone who's watched the film can't imagine anyone else in the role. He owns it, and delivers as many laughs with his dialogue and antics as he does in the moments he sits there silently. That takes talent. So farewell & R.I.P., Gene. Thank you for all the cinematic joy you left behind for us. You won't be forgotten.

Yeah...I felt like all the scenes that were homages to old Hollywood kept them from developing the story on this one while also bouncing us around between too many characters. Definitely a disappointm

Primer
First viewing - Aug. 24th
I'd meant to watch one of the films waiting for me at the bottom of this list instead, but other responsibilities delayed me from getting an early enough start to justify a 2-hour movie. So instead I went with Primer because it was under an hour & a half, thus guaranteeing I'd be in bed at a decent time. I've heard some great things about this movie, but I can't say I agree with them. While the film does deliver a fresh take on a time travel film, the structure makes it really difficult to hang with at times. The film kicks off with information overload and no clear idea of where we're going with it all, and expects us to hang in until things make more sense. So you wait for more clarity, and when you finally get some they maintain enough mystery about how things are happening that you're still kinda lost. It doesn't help either that the central duo aren't given enough character development to relate to them very much. So ultimately I decided that I liked some of the ideas presented, but the whole thing could have been far better. Currently streaming on Netflix
