    ★★★★★

    I saw that TBS was showing Blazing Saddles today. It starts at 8 and ends at 8:03.

    Is Blazing Saddles offensive? Yes, yet the way it goes about it I feel like not only gives us what is probably the most authentic view of what the west was actually like back then, but it also makes the movie timeless. The jokes had me laughing at least every minute. The acting is great. The story, while nothing new for a western,…

    ★★★★½

    So this is my first time watching this. Not out of choice, but I just never had the opportunity to see it.

    Wow! This film was something. The effects still hold up to this day. The story, while a bit unconventional, is easy enough to follow. The characters that we see are interesting and engaging even if we know very little about them. Hal being a stand-out even though he's a camera with a red light.

    As for negatives. Since…
