The Passing of an Icon: Gene Wilder and Young Frankenstein

No chipmunks were harmed in the making of this blog post, Tor.commers. OR WERE THEY?

Today’s entry in the Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia is that amazing sci-fi classic parody, Mel Brooks’ and Gene Wilder’s masterpiece of 1974, Young Frankenstein. Which, it took me entirely too long to realize, is the source of the music sting in that most dramatic of chipmunk clips linked above, even though I’ve been using it for dramatic punctuation for years. So sad.

The Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia: Return to Oz

Wheelers and chickens and nomes, oh my! Welcome back to the Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia! Today’s Nostalgia post concerns 1985’s Return to Oz, the semi-sequel to the 1939 classic film Wizard of Oz, and based on the books by L. Frank Baum. You’ve probably heard of at least one of the things in this paragraph.

Please note that as with all films covered on the Nostalgia Rewatch, this post will be rife with spoilers, so take whatever precautions appropriate. Unlike the first film I covered, though, Return to Oz is pretty easily available, so it should be no problem to watch the film so you can follow along.

Got all that? Good! So without further ado, click on to see what I thought after all these years!
