So they're doing a soft corners-rounded-down kid-friendly CGI reboot of 'Blazing Saddles', I guess. With Mel Brooks' consent.

Extry, extry, readallaboutit.

...you know, they used to show a slightly edited version of 'Blazing Saddles' on network tv. All the time.

Like, the only positive I can see of this is that maybe more people will seek out the real movie. It's really good.

[EDIT:...you know, if you want to capture the essence of 'Blazing Saddles', "dog in a cats' world" is so deadassed wrong. It should be "cat in a dogs' world". I mean, it's still stupid, but it's less stupid.

Why are they doing this, again? This is the dumbest idea.

Yeah, this basically just looks like a Kung Fu Panda spinoff.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I just don't get who this is for. Like, for all that it's an absurdist Mel Brooks flick with the n-word in lots and lots, 'Blazing Saddles' is kind of one of those perfect movies. Like 'Wizard of Oz', or 'North by Northwest'. It dun't need a modern reboot for people to like it.

[EDIT]
'Blazing Samurai "teaches kids and adults alike that embracing diversity is what truly makes you a hero."
Eat me. The people of Rock Ridge don't get behind Sheriff Bart because they 'embrace diversity'----------they very begrudgingly stop being quite so overtly racist because they need Sheriff Bart. Did the idiots who wrote this article ever watch the movie? Do they not get it?
