Following. I have no idea where this thread will end up going. But I am on board for the ride.

Odin, you have to get away from Pinside once and a while and go old school

Pinside might say "First Million Shot", but IPDB includes the "Solid State" caveat -

"Comet was the first solid-state machine to feature a one million point shot, using Steve Kordek's voice to announce "One Million!".

Quoted from Darcy:

Always thought a padded bra qualified as false advertising. That might be off topic.

Makes me think about the scene from Animal House with his hands full of toilet paper.

I wonder if you can even get the un-cut classic movies anymore. Imagine the heads exploding these days if the original Blazing Saddles was shown in public. (how's that for the continued derailment)

Quoted from TheLaw:

Enjoy it wHile you can, how long can they leave in the whole molesting a 13 year old in there?

Actually after the Angle / Devil argument he didn't do anything. It was a later scene when she lets him know she is underage and introduces him to her father.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Why do people ALWAYS say this about blazing saddles?
I saw it “in public” two years ago. If you consider in front of 2,500 people at radio city “in public.” There were no protests nor did any of us get in trouble on Facebook when we posted about being there. Heads did not “explode,” except in laughter.
Blazing saddles is not racist, it’s funny. It never was racist. Most people understand this.
Yes the language is extremely offensive, but the entire point of the movie is that the people using that language and espousing those views are absolute morons. And, in the end most see the error of their ways.
There’s a big difference between casually using racist language in 2019 on the street and watching and enjoying a 40-year old movie that is hilarious and also anti-racist. You can still do one and not the other.
Moral of the story: nobody is going to upset with you for laughing at Blazing Saddles, it’s not banned, and the fact that it’s good doesn’t excuse being “politically incorrect” in your daily 2019 life.

Because you couldn't make that movie or most of Mel Brooks comedy these days. If you see it on TV or buy (most) versions these days they are edited. Heck, they edit Radios for Guns in E.T.

You are correct. Mel was a master of using words to shock but not be insulting.

You probably couldn’t make it today...but it’s not being scrubbed from history.
Mel was at the screening I attended, it was amazing.

Awesome. I crossed my finger for years but he never made "Jews In Space".

Self moderation is cool.

Beat them to the punch and keep them off guard.
