Spaceballs: The Review!

7 years, 10 months ago at Mar 27 20:00

Mel Brooks has been making movies and parodies since the 60's and I've seen a lot of them and Spaceballs is the best.

The story is that the leaders of planet Spaceball have wasted all their air and extorting all the air from their neighboring planet of Druidia. And to do so by kidnapping the princess of the planet, Princess Vespa. But she is rescued by Captain Lone Starr, who was h... read more

Spaceballs was the first Mel Brooks film I ever saw and it's long been one of my favourite parodies out there. Even just thinking about some of the lines in this movie makes me giggle. I grew up on the kind of movies Spaceballs is spoofing and I think that makes it even funnier. As the saying goes - it's funny 'cause it's TRUE! It amazes me how many laughs can be squeezed out of Spaceballs.

"15.12. (Teatteri) En pidä Mel Brooksista ja olihan tämä huono, mutta työpaikan pikkujoulujen suoman myrkytystilan jälkeisissä tutinoissa nauroin parille levottomalle läpälle. Tuskinpa olisin tätä normaaleissa atmosfääreissä tehnyt. Musa on yllättävän hyvää. Niin joo, tämä oli kanssa jotain niin surrealistista, että se on aivan pakko jakaa. Duunikaverini kertoi olleensa joskus hommissa kahvilassa, jossa kävi mummo, joka katkaisi savukkeen aina kahtia ja poltti pelkät jäm"

Roger Ebert didn't like all the Classics (41 movies items)

" His Review : Did Mel Brooks make "Spaceballs" to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the "Star Wars" saga? Last month we celebrated the first decade of George Lucas's great entertainment, and now here is Brooks's satire, complete with Dark Helmet and Pizza the Hutt. I enjoyed a lot of the movie, but I kept thinking I was at a revival. The strangest thing about "Spaceballs" is that it should have been made several years ago, before our appetite for "Star Wars" satires had been completely exhaus"

"Katsottu: 9.2.2015 nauhalta Ihan hauska Star Wars-parodia ja piristää päivää hyvin. Hauskimmat hetket olivat Pizza the Hutin kohtaaminen ja Alien-parodia. Pitäisi joskus katsoa lisää John Candya. "

"5.2, Netflix Olihan tässä aika helvetistä typeriä ja todella epähauskoja juttuja, mutta myös jokunen oivaltavakin kohtaus. Esimerkiksi alien-parodia oli wtf-ajatuksia herättävä, ehkä juuri siksi hauska. Jotenkin kyllä koen tämän Mel Brooksin parodiointityylin tässäkin elokuvassa sympaattisena, ehkä tosin siksi että tämä on huomattavasti viattomampi kuin ne tämän vuosisadan puolella tehdyt samaa genreä edustavat ripulipaskatekeleet."

Spaceballs the Review

“Out of all of the Mel Brooks movies, Spaceballs, a parody of the original Star Wars trilogy, would have to be my personal favorite. Casting fresher faces for most of the main characters was a nice touch.

I found those characters to be quite lovable, much like the Star Wars characters, well, before Jar-Jar Binks was conceived in George Lucas' crazy brain. The one character that entertains me the most is Dark Helmet, naturally. No matter how intimidating Helmet tries to be, he's still the ego-maniacal man-child that is the butt of a lot of jokes.

The gags are so funny that they border on cartoonish, such as when Lone Star learns to master the power of the Schwartz by lifting the giant Yogurt statue. Barf is impressed with Lone Star, who gets distracted and accidentally dr” read more
