    I've watched Spaceballs 100+ times, so its the easy pick for me.

    Mel might be the most quotable writer of all time. These movies are all gold.

    One of my blind spots. I've only seen the first half hour of History of the World Part 1.

    So you're only familiar with like 1/10 of world history.

    Pretty much. It was my senior year Civics teacher. Most of the class was not really willing to give it a chance.

    I recognize that the actual best Brooks film is probably either Blazing Saddles or Young Frankenstein, but I'm going with Spaceballs because of nostalgia. I could re-watch that movie any day.

    I wouldn't be mad if someone said Dracula lol. He's all hits to me.

    Could see how someone watching his movies today would see problems with most of them tho. We could NEVER get another Blazing Saddles.

    Considering I just preordered a 4K release of Spaceballs even though I’ve owned at least five copies of it in my life, I absolutely have to go with that. Young Frankenstein is almost interchangeable as the other favorite though. I am also probably Dracula: Dead and Loving It’s greatest defender on earth though, so I’m sad to see that not even get a specific option.

    I ordered the Mel Brooks collection on blu ray from best buy a couple years ago but didnt check the location for pick up and ended up taking a little road trip to Alabama to pick it up lol. It was a pretty okay day.

    I thought this said Mel Gibson for a second and was ready to bust in here like a SWAT team to shut this shit down.

    I bet Mel Gibson doesn't care for Mel Brooks.

    When I was a kid I loved Spaceballs but now I think I'd probably say Young Frankenstein

    Blazing Saddles is obviously a classic too. Never actually seen History of the World or Robin Hood

    Probably Young Frankenstein, but definitely have a lot more nostalgia for Spaceballs ... and even Men In Tights.
