Lots of Mel Brooks PR stuff these days… cross your fingers that one eventually will be about a return to film. This week he’ll be receiving a life time achievement award from the American Film Institute, presented to him by Martin Scorsese. If you’re in LA I believe the ceremony will take place the evening […]

I’ve been so busy at work but there are a few things that are semi Mel related. 1) Django Unchained: I just saw this movie and loved it. I’m not sure if there were explicit nods to Blazing Saddles, but there seemed to be quite a few… especially when Django gets to choose his own […]

Did you hear Mel got a star? Congrats Mel! Too bad I missed the event, something that’s becoming oh too frequent but is understandable with all my varying interests. Here’s how I found out about it: Mark: How was the unveiling of the star? Felix: What star? Mark: Oh, I assumed you were at Mel […]

I can’t believe Comic-Con is here already! I haven’t had any time to transfer the 2007 panel, let alone updating anything else related to this site, and now Max is a special guest! Not sure if I’ll make it to this panel but he’ll be on Friday July 25th from 10:30-11:30am (Room 5AB). If I […]

Lots of “Mel related” news since my last post. Quint of Ain’t It Cool News recently interviewed Mel as a promo for Get Smart (opening Friday). Here is a link. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/37135

Just a quick tid bit. Apparently it was announced at Comic-Con that Mel Brooks and Buck Henry would make cameos in the new Get Smart movie. There was no mention of Mel in the George Romero panel, but it seems like Max is going to get a movie made about Zombies! Maybe Mel can show […]

Phew, what a day!  According to the folks at the MGM booth there are no Spaceballs Animated Series promotional materials at this time. However, they did have a big poster and a looping intro to the series. I was able to take pictures of the poster and the video… but don’t have access to an […]

Okay! Just got back from the preview night. Man, this thing just keeps getting bigger every year! I dropped by the G4TV booth to inquire about the changes to the G4 Code Monkeys/Spaceballs panel. Unfortunately, no one knew why Spaceballs was dropped… nor did they know if anything was going to be shown at Comic-Con. […]

Hey all. The San Diego Comic-Con schedule has been released and Max will be co-chair for a panel with none other than George Romero of The Night of the Living Dead fame. The panel will be on Thursday in Rm 6CDEF from 4:45-5:45pm. Not sure how much Mel is involved, if at all, with Get […]

On my way to work this morning I was listening to the Kevin & Bean show on 106.7FM “KROQ.”  Their topic at the time was people who are scared of zombies and truly prepare for a zombie attack. They, and listeners, mentioned Max Brooks’ survival guide several times… and Max’s name was mentioned at least […]
