I watched Young Frankenstein last night online and thought it was a bit meh.

Blazing Saddles is one greats though.

They wouldnt age well.

The meaning of life is on netflix now (i think). Be interesting to see how that holds up.

I see Tropic Thunder is in the news again mostly due to the shock people are now having of Robert Downey Jr. doing a blackface.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't remember there being much outrage when it was first released.

It is because most people understood what they were doing. The point they were making was about people being given parts that should have been for BAME actors. I thought it was a dreadful film, but most people, certainly most black people, accepted that it was in good faith and they had the moral ground.

There's an argument that it is always unacceptable, one I broadly agree with, but sometimes you have to use shock to make people understand the reality. I think they deserve credit for doing it, just not for the film! The conversations that have happened as a result were necessary. 
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

There's also plenty of fat actors out there who could have played the Tom Cruise part.
I'm sure John Goodman was on to his agent.

Exactly it was accepted as it was done in a way to poke fun at hollywood not any race.

The idea was brilliant, I just felt the execution was poor. It was well reviewed though, or so I believe.
