Over the last year, I've had the great luck to sit with 46 fabulous guests on our podcast ‘River Café Table 4' - talking about food, family, and memories. Everyone has read a recipe from a River Cafe cook book and shared stories about cooking and eating in their favourite restaurants. In September we will be back for Season 2 - with a new name: ‘RUTHIE ROGERS TABLE 4'. Gwyneth Paltrow, Wolfgang Puck, Mel Brooks and many more will be with me. Join us then - your table will be ready and waiting. For more than 30 years The River Cafe in London, has been the home-from-home of artists, architects, designers, actors, collectors, writers, activists, and politicians. Michael Caine, Glenn Close, JJ Abrams, Steve McQueen, Victoria and David Beckham, and Lily Allen, are just some of the people who love to call The River Cafe home. On River Cafe Table 4, Rogers sits down with her customers—who have become friends—to talk about food memories. Table 4 explores how food impacts every aspect of our lives. “Foods is politics, food is cultural, food is how you express love, food is about your heritage, it defines who you and who you want to be,” says Rogers. Each week, Rogers invites her guest to reminisce about family suppers and first dates, what they cook, how they eat when performing, the restaurants they choose, and what food they seek when they need comfort. And to punctuate each episode of Table 4, guests such as Ralph Fiennes, Emily Blunt and Alfonso Cuarón, read their favourite recipe from one of the best-selling River Cafe cookbooks. Table 4 itself, is situated near The River Cafe's open kitchen, close to the bright pink wood-fired oven and next to the glossy yellow pass, where Ruthie oversees the restaurant. You are invited to take a seat at this intimate table and join the conversation.

Dana and Tom discuss one of their mutual favorite comedies, Blazing Saddles (1974): directed by Mel Brooks, story by Andrew Bergman, starring Clevon Little, Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, and Alex Karras. Plot Summary: When the new railroad route must change and go through the town of Rock Ridge, the conniving Attorney General Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman) looks for a way to drive out the town residences so he can snatch the land. Moreover, Lamarr talks the Governor into appointing the first black sheriff, Bart (Clevon Little), hoping to cause further chaos and disorder. When Bart arrives in town, he is anything but popular. However, he soon teams up with the Waco Kid (Gene Wilder), a washed-up gunslinger, who becomes his deputy. Will the people of Rock Ridge be able to stand against the scheme of Lamarr or will he get the last laugh?

Dans The Great Buster : Une célébration, le réalisateur et critique américain Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show) retrace la vie et la carrière de l'un des cinéastes et comédiens les plus influents des États-Unis, Buster Keaton, dont le style singulier et la production féconde à l'époque du muet ont fait de lui un véritable génie du cinéma. Cette plongée très personnelle dans les archives de la famille Keaton révèle un artiste visionnaire qui a tout risqué, même sa vie, pour faire rire les spectateurs du monde entier avec des œuvres précieuses comme Sherlock Junior (1924), Le Mécano de la Générale (1926) ou Cadet d'eau douce (1928). En mêlant extraits de films, éclairage critique et témoignages d'une vingtaine de collaborateurs, réalisateurs, artistes, amis, comme Mel Brooks, Werner Herzog, Quentin Tarantino ou Bill Hader, ce documentaire rend le plus beau des hommages à « L'homme qui ne rit jamais » et à son empreinte indélébile sur la comédie moderne et la culture américaine en général. Suppléments :Rencontre au Quad avec Peter Bogdanovich (29min.)À l'occasion de la projection de The Great Buster : Une célébration au Quad Cinema à New York, le réalisateur Peter Bogdanovich ne tarit pas d'éloges sur Buster Keaton et son œuvre, et ne manque pas d'évoquer les autres cinéastes qui ont compté pour lui, de John Ford à Alfred Hitchcock en passant par Orson Welles.Version Originale - Sous-Titres FrançaisNouveau Master RestauréCouleurs et N&B - Format 1.78 respecté - Audio : DD 5.1 et 2.0DVD Pal Zone 2
Michael Dubois and Cool Movies Darth pick up where they left off with their discussion inspired by Mel Brooks's debut feature, "The Producers". The conversation starts with exploring Zero Mostel's portrayal of Max Bialystock and his pension for seducing pensioners to fund his films. This leads into CM Darth's salacious adulthood, satirical takes towards parents, and "Star Wars" fandom. It only seems appropriate to attach a review for "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" to this podcast.
PAWS OF FURY: THE LEGEND OF HANK tells the story of HANK, a loveable dog with a head full of dreams about becoming a samurai, sets off in search of his destiny. Because this movie was first announced as a remake of Mel Brooks' Blazzing Saddles, & was originally titled "Blazing Samurai" the writers of the original film received screenplay credits, as the film lifts the plot & various jokes from Blazing Saddles & puts a more family friendly spin on them.PAWS OF FURY: THE LEGEND OF HANK stars Michael Cera, Samuel L. Jackson, Ricky Gervais, Mel Brooks, George Takei, Michelle Yeoh, Cathy Shim and Djimon Hounsou.
Synopsis What do you get when you combine Monty Python, Mel Brooks, and the Passion of Christ? I don't know, but it's been going on for 390 years at this point.

Our friend Maxine Davidowitz recently introduced me to Hank Neimark, telling me that Hank was getting ready to work on the Summer 2022 Woodstock Shakespeare Festival production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. After talking with Hank for just a short time, I asked if he would like to talk about the play on the podcast, and he agreed. At Hank's suggestion, we were joined on the podcast by David Aston Reese, the Producing Artistic Director of the Bird-On-A-Cliff Theatre Company in Woodstock. David has acted, directed and produced works for Bird-On-A-Cliff Theatre Company's Woodstock Shakespeare Festival and The Woodstock Playhouse. David is the Director of the Summer 2022 Woodstock Shakespeare Festival production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Hank is working with him. Hank and David, both extraordinarily knowledgeable and enthusiastic Shakespearians, discussed A Midsummer Night's Dream's often misguided or misdirected lovers, the Kings and Queens, marriages, and dreams, the irrepressible Bottom and Puck, and the other “mechanicals” and fairies, the play within the play, and the tension between what some think of as one of Shakespeare's most sexual plays, and also as the one most suitable for children. An unlikely but highly effective combination. Lots of discussion as well about the production of the play, the direction embedded in the language of the play, and the “choreography”, i.e. the blocking, and stage direction, that comes together with the music that is embedded in Shakespeare's words. Our discussion culminates with Hank's Mel Brooks impersonation from “Queen Alexandra and Murray”.

Welcome to episode 54 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I'll be discussing Yumi Matsutoya's classic 1980 album, “Surf & Snow – Volume One.” For as big as Yuming is, and considering how easy it is to find reviews, critiques and opinions about her online, I was surprised by the sparse amount of biographical information about her. The highlights are covered, but not nearly to the granular degree of other artists, even ones far less popular or accomplished. I still managed to learn a decent amount about her, which always makes my research more enjoyable. One thing that's always amused me about “Surf & Snow” is that she never released a Volume Two. Mel Brooks is finally getting around to “History Of The World Part 2,” so I guess there's always hope. While researching this episode, I was pleased to find some live videos of Yuming performing some of the songs that I'd never seen before. I wanted to share those and the fantastic video of “Koibito ga Santa Claus” from that 1986 special with you here in the show notes. I Want To Be A Mermaid Dazzling Grass Baseball – At A Small Ballpark Koibito ga Santa Claus / My Lover Is Santa Claus I hope you've enjoyed my introduction to Yumi Matsutoya and her music. She's a true icon in Japan, and considering the wealth of music she's produced, and the breadth of styles she's covered, you're bound to find something of hers to enjoy. Join me back here later this month as I cover the rest of her Christmas music. Then join me on the 25th (or thereabouts) for my Christmas in July episode. I've run into several delays so it might be a day late, but I'll be doing what I can to get it out on time. I've compiled a great collection of summer-themed Christmas songs and you want to miss it. As always, any feedback on this episode would be appreciated. If have any suggestions, or if you'd like to recommend a song or album for a future episode, drop me a line and let me know. Remember, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. I've also opened a Redbubble store. I only have a couple designs up, but keep an eye on it as I'll be trying to add more.

Kelsey Goldman is in the driver's seat for this special episode! Kelsey and her pal Jason Edwards lead the episode for a discussion on Mel Brooks.

Ahoy, Motherfuckers! You take John Candy and put him into any movie, and you already have comedic gold. But when you mix him with Rick Moranis in possibly his greatest role and add Mel Brooks' writing genius, you have a comedic classic.

There is a scene in Mel Brooks' movie History of the World Part II where he is playing King Louis XIV and he's surrounded by several suggestively dressed women. He looks at them and then looks at the camera and says, “It's good to be the king.” It was meant to be a sexually subversive statement for comedic effect, but it was realistically spot on, at least for Ahaserus it was.When Mordecai plead with Esther to go to the king and beg for mercy on behalf of she and her people, she was very worried. The king had made a rule that no one was allowed to come see him unsolicited without risking their lives to do it. If he was in a bad mood, he could have you put to death just for coming to see him, and Esther knew this applied to her as well. At least, she was afraid it would, and she had Vashti as an example she didn't want to repeat.This also shows just how disengaged the king was. There is no better way to insulate yourself from reality than to make everyone afraid to ever come and bring you bad news. This is exactly what this bizarre rule would have accomplished. Some years had passed since Esther became queen. When she was young and beautiful, the king adored her, but now she had put on a few years and it seems the king had found some newer and younger girls to keep him entertained. He hadn't called for her to come and see him in a month. The implication here is that the king wasn't going without, just going without Esther. Much like Mel Brooks' King Louis XIV, it was good to be the king in the worst possible way.Esther had her attendant tell this bit of incredibly embarrassing personal information to Mordecai, so that he would understand that she just couldn't risk going to see the king. What would you have done in Esther's shoes? How would you have felt?--------------Esther is simultaneously a victory and a tragedy. In some ways, If you look at it through a modern lens, it should be called the Victory of Mordecai and the Tragedy of Esther. Esther loses her parents and then is taken into the harem of a despotic king to be used as he wishes. Mordecai ends up, like Daniel, a very high official and ruler in his expatriated land. This will be a great study of Esther as we look at the emotions, the world and the meanings of one of the most cherished, and often misunderstood books of the Bible.-----------LINKS----------Support 10WB on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/10weekbibleThe 10 Week Bible - http://www.10WeekBible.comTwitter: @DarrenHibbs - https://twitter.com/DarrenHibbsSign up for my newsletter - http://www.darrenhibbs.comGet a copy of the 10 Week Bible Study today - https://www.amazon.com/Darren-Hibbs/e/B00B4I47CE/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl2&tag=darrenhcom0a-20&linkId=401f3d79974c70929517936977e32df9My other YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChUU0XHSHuhSyN8qk-7efYgTake the survey and win some great fun stuff at www.10WeekBible.com today.Support the show

Dracula Dead and Loving It is a typical Mel Brooks movie. It's a spoof of Bram Stoker's Dracula that's light on plot, but full of goofy gags and childish humor. Unfortunately, it lacks the biting wit of most Brooks films. Despite the unending charms of comedy legend Leslie Nielsen, who portrays the titular Count, too many of the jokes simply do not land. Critics tend to agree. At 11% on Rotten Tomatoes with 37 reviews this is far from peak Brooks. Sure, there are subtle hints of his brilliance, but not enough to make it stand out. Hence why it also flopped, grossing a woeful $10.7 million on a budget of $30 million.

That big guy from that thing you saw joins me with story after story including how one teacher changed his life forever. Eric Allan Kramer holds a special place in my family's heart. To my kids, he is Bob Duncan and to me, he is the guy I kept telling my kids was the original live-action Thor. Eric starred as Thor in 1988's TV movie, The Return of the Incredible Hulk with Lou Ferrigno and Bill Bixby. Eric shares stories of suiting up and playing the hero. Though the multi-verse has not brought him back I still hold out hope. Eric shares his acting origin story and great stories from the set of American Wedding, True Romance, The Hughley's, Good Luck Charlie, and guest spots on Seinfeld and Cheers. We also dive into Eric's experience working with Mel Brooks in Men In Tights where Eric portrayed LIttle John. You'll love all the stories and likely will be bellowing ODIN by the end.

Morbius is perhaps the most needless comic book movie ever made. Centered around a D-level Spider-Man villain, it lacks several crucial ingredients. First and foremost, Spider-Man is not in Morbius. In fact, contrary to what the trailers will have you believe, he's barely even mentioned. Thus, it's just a film about an anti-hero who's uninteresting. That would be fine if the plot, script, acting, action, or anything, quite frankly, worked. Morbius is a mess. Both the titular vampire and his plot conveniently evil foil, Milo, are paper thin caricatures. Milo, or Lucian played by Matt Smith, is bad because Morbius needs someone to fight. His actions, and that of the plot at large, have zero context. This looks, feels, and plays like a superhero flick from the early 2000s. And the fact that it flopped twice doesn't bode well for Sony's burgeoning Spider-Man universe. It's reviews, equally appalling, don't lend much credibility to the prospect either. Now, sit back, suck a Baby Shark IPA from Aslin Beer Co. dry, and dance shirtless without a care! I, the Thunderous Wizard (@WriterTLK), Capt. Cash, and Chumpzilla are morbin' as hard as anyone has ever morbed! This Week's Segments: Introduction/Plot Breakdown – The line between hero and villain will be broken! (00:00) Lingering Questions – After a word from our brothers in beer at Hop Nation USA, we metaphorically stake this film in its hollow, black heart. (49:33) The "Morbin's Time" Trivia Challenge – The Double Turn Podcast throws synthetic blood into our eyes, and then Capt. Cash challenges the field to trivia about the movie. (59:12) Recommendations – We offer our picks for the week and next up: We finish off "Hops and Blood Sucking Flops" with Mel Brooks' Dracula Dead and Loving It! (1:09:11) And, as always, hit us up on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to check out all the interesting factoids—how it fell on its face at the box office again and more—from this week's episode!

The Movie Deep Dive Podcast with actor/comedian Mike Pusateri returns with the long promised, much anticipated Young Frankenstein episode. It's one of the funniest movies ever made and toes the line between smart and stupid better than almost any other film ever has. Gene Wilder said it was his favorite movie and Mel Brooks said it's his best. So kick back, and enjoy this loving look back the movie, it's casting decisions, how it almost wasn't in black in white (in Peru, anyway) and how Gene Hackman ended up in it. If nothing else, you'll get to hear a lot of really funny clips. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/desipio/message
