Spaceballs: The Review!

14 years, 2 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.

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 enter... read more

“I don't think that this is one of Mel Brooks' finest hours, but it was reasonably entertaining, though as far as Brooks' films go The Producers and Young Frankenstein are more entertaining and I think more watchable. The story is very thin, the pacing is somewhat uneven feeling rushed or draggy, the gags are hit and miss(in the timing some of the time as it is all very manic humour wise) and there are some very silly and unfunny puns scattered in the course of the film. However, the visuals are great, the music is quirky and some gags are funny especially the speed scene which was both ludicrous and hilarious and Spaceballs has a great cast. It is always a delight to see Mel Brooks(who also directs decently), John Candy, Rick Moranis(who gets the best moments) and Bill Pullman, and they al” read more

"Re-watch - Feb. 5th After Alien I figured it was finally time to let her watch Spaceballs as by this point she's seen most of the things it references (to be fair at this point most of humanity would be lost on the Max Headroom reference). We had a good time, though it didn't hold her attention nearly as well as Alien did. "
