    Blofeld: Tranny Granny

    Or «Drag-y baddie».

    Or even Draggers.

    «Draggers …badders»?

    He certainly is. Mad, bad and dangerous to know!

    Indeed! This might actually be the most terrifying we've seen Blofeld.

    Well at least the cat appears to be loving it!

    Looks to have a better time than the other one…

    Yes, the Pleasance Blofeld's cat was not so lucky!

    Was thinking more of the double's cat, but you're right about that one, too!

    Of course! How could I forget the "wrong pussy"! I'm losing my edge!

    It certainly did appear to be kicked and in pain. Not sure if that was legal in filming in 1970/1971?!
    And a horse was mistreated during the making of NSNA. Obvious conclusion: Sean Connery, animal hater. Never watching his films again.
    Not to mention the sharks that get harpooned in TB. That, I'm not a big fan of.
    Agreed.

    Me either.

    Secretary of Evil :))

    I hope they make another Austin Powers film at some point.

    Agreed. He keeps breaking out Dr. Evil for a late night skit every few years - they need to finally do that fourth installment while it's still an option.

    Under make up I think Myers could still get away with it on the big screen

    Looks like he's put on some weight but for the most part the character himself doesn't look or sound different at all to me. They put another one in theaters, you can be damn sure I'll be there to see it.

    Likewise I have the trilogy on Bluray love the films, it's a shame Love Guru bombed so much some have cited that as reason Myers stopped making life action films, personally I thought Love Guru was hilarious.

    I only saw it once after it hit DVD, don't recall enjoying it but it's been so long since I've seen it. I do love all three Austin Powers movies though, I also have that blu-ray boxset of them.

    Love Guru is bad though it's so stupid it had me laughing.

    Would love for an Austin Power 4. If they can bring back Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, why not Powers!

    I despise both Austin Powers and Johnny English. Don t find them funny at all.

    With the exception of a chuckle here or there, I agree with you. I skipped them all in the theater, but watched the three Austin Powers in a row one weekend about 11 years ago; that schtick of his gets old very quickly, I didn't come away a fan. The other one, Johnny English, I made it through about 15 minutes of the first film, and that was torture enough.

    Loved the Dr. Evil clip! Those movies are good fun. Just today I was remembering the line from Goldmember, "Oooohh, right in the kenickie!" Love Mini Me eating chocolate--"it's like frikkin' catnip for clones". It figures I'd like the Austin Powers movies, since my favorite comedy movie of all time is Blazing Saddles.

    The Heroes & Icons TV channel in the U.S. is running some Bond films this weekend, so I'm waiting for A View To A Kill, one of the DVDs I don't have, to come on in an hour and a half!

    One of my favorite comedies. I watch every five years or so. It was the first Rated-R movie I saw; at the drive-in.

    I love Mel, and respect his impact on cinema. His work exemplifies how far we've fallen, as movies like his could never be made in this day and age what with outrage being the highest currency. People don't have a sense of humor anymore, or if they do, they're not allowed to.

    BLAZING SADDLES is rated "R" in the U.S.? Are you kidding? It's always been "12" in Germany and even "6" in the Netherlands. Have I missed a nipple flash?

    Probably the language use, @j_w_pepper, of that certain word. We're a bunch of soft prudes in America.

    Ah yes, I forgot the "n" word...which is so out of bounds that you cannot even quote it to show and/or satirize the hypocrisy and racism of those who do use it. Making them sort of untouchable as a result.

    I'm pretty sure the German rating board found the farting around the campfire the most critical.

    @j_w_pepper, well, we certainly can't let cinema go so far as to offend people or challenge their comfort zones and perceptions of life. When has it ever been art's job to do such an invasive thing as that?! Better to have movies that only imply the hardships of life in stories that are properly censored while also using only accepted terminology for race and using only the approved gender pronouns according to PC law. We either submit, or walk hand in hand to the gulags.

    Wow, @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, nobody could have put it better. Thank you for your insights. Should it turn out differently, see you at the gulag.

    It's meant to be literal. The PC death camps will have at least a pot for prisoners to do their business in, and at least a bucket if there's ever a shortage in pots. I say this because I know these people well enough to make most of their moves fairly predictable. The prisoners will complain about not having anywhere to defecate and, being the sensitive ninnies they are, the death camp runners will buckle under the pressure of offending their prisoners and supply the buckets and pots.

    It was probably all of the racial stuff, though in 1973 people were a lot loser with those things. So, I guess it is odd.

    Looks like Blazing Saddles is "15" here in Norway. Don't know what is was back in the 70's, though. Odd, really, as there can't be many comedies with that rating.

    I was a kid in the 70s and I saw it. A few years after the premiere.
