It’s the inaugural edition of our first-ever “Listener Supported” series on Talking Movies, and we’re having entirely too much fun kicking it off with the comedy classic Blazing Saddles. Listener Sammie Cassell suggested we discuss a Mel Brooks film on the show, and we went with one that not only inspires fond memories all-around but also still makes us laugh (spoiler alert) A LOT.
It’s a fun episode, for sure, and we sincerely thank Sammie for helping us get this series going in the most rootin’, tootin’ way possible — keep those requests coming, everybody!
In addition to discussing Brooks’ 1974 Western spoof, we’ve also got Brian’s take on HBO’s just-wrapped series The Leftovers and a current box-office blockbuster, Chris showing some love to a too-little-seen 2016 thriller, and Nick getting pumped to finally see his all-time favorite movie on the big screen. Saddle up and enjoy!
